I bought this from target about one month ago. At first it seemed alright, sound quality was decent and things seemed to function ok. Over time I have noticed that this unit is incredibly glitchy. - Sometimes the unit will stay on and speakers will hiss despite being turned off, I have to unplug and reset it on a regular basis. - I think the amp power supply may be going bad already (something I would expect after frequent use for a few years, but not after barely using it for 30 days). Sometimes it take multiple attempts to get it to sound right (I am experienced in Home Audio and these issues are not simple). - The radio works well...I will give it that. But its pretty hard to screw up a radio functionality. - The Dock for Ipods / Iphones is flimsy. It moves up and down and has give, which means it would likely break within one year of owning this product. All in all this is a very cheaply made and cheaply engineered device. You are much better off getting a different unit, or just hooking up your system to a Receiver or Home Theater Setup. I bought this item with hopes of not having to turn on my home stereo and using my expensive system everytime I wanted to watch Movies or Listen to the Radio / Ipod...it has failed miserably. Target has informed me that because I did not keep the box (which of course living in a small apartment makes sense...who doesnt keep every box with all packing materials for at least 60 days as a precautionary?)...so I will be exchanging this unit for the same thing this weekend. Perhaps I got a glitchy one...or perhaps I wont even both and just sell this on [...] when I have the new unit in hand. Perhaps if you want one, and live in LA...you should check [...])
Found out the hard way -unwanted alarms waking everyone up- that once you program an alarm on this clock radio, there is no way to program it to "off" without pulling the plug and resetting the whole unit! Since it doesn't have a 5 day alarm setting to start with, this is a great way to ruin your Saturday morning.
Even when you think you have toggled the alarm to "off" in program mode and no alarm bell shows on the display, what you will find is that the setting does not take and the alarm will go off anyway. Two calls to tech support an this could not be resolved so the clock went back.
Too bad because otherwise it would have been pretty decent.
