Speaker Details & Features

The Emerson iTone iC200S Clock Radio offers a convenient iPod Docking Station and the exclusive SmartSet auto time setting system, so you'll always know the correct time. This compact system features a powerful amplifier and matching high fidelity speakers to produce high-quality, crystal-clear sound that you would normally expect from a much larger, more expensive audio system.

The built-in iPod docking station allows you to play any dockable iPod model through the speakers of this system. It even automatically charges your iPod battery so you won't have to worry about running out of power. You can also choose to wake up to your favorite songs on your iPod in the morning.

The iTone iC200S is easy to use. The digital turner automatically scans the AM and FM bands and locks in stations perfectly with no repetitive fine tuning required. You won't have to struggle to read the time on the 0.6 inch white LED clock display and you can save 20 of your favorite stations (10 AM and 10 FM) in the preset memory tuner for immediate recall at the touch of a button. The radio frequency also features a dimmer control so you can clearly see your choices. Never worry about bad weather conditions during the night short-circuiting your alarm thanks to Emerson's patented SmartSet Automatic Time Setting System, which automatically sets the clock to the correct year, month, date, day, and time the first time you connect the system to your AC outlet, and after every power interruption. It even adjusts for Daylight Saving's and Leap Years all on its own.

Because everyone has a preference when it comes to deciding when and how it's best to start the day, the iTone iC200S's unique dual alarm system lets you wake up to your iPod, the radio or an electronic buzzer that starts softly and gradually increases in volume to wake you gently. It also lets you program one or both of the alarms for weekdays only, weekends only, or everyday operation. The clock also includes a programmable 99-minute sleep to music timer with auto shutoff and a 99-minute Nap timer that will wake you up after a nap without having to change your regular alarm settings. If you need a little extra sleep in the morning, there's also a snooze alarm that you can activate by pressing the Snooze button on the top cabinet or the remote control, or you can simply wave your hand in front of the "Touchless" Snooze Sensor on the front panel.

The iTone iC200S is flexible and versatile, offering both ease of operation and customization options. Thanks to the compact 13-key remote control, you can operate all the major functions of your system from across the room. And if you still want to use some of your favorite devices with the iTone iC200, you can take advantage of the included stereo headphone jack and an Auxiliary Input Jack on the back panel, both of which make it a snap to connect older, non-docking iPods, MP3 players, and personal CD players.

Could be better

I have used this alarm clock for over a year and it has done very well. I have been pleased with it and would purchase it again. The only downside is that the clock light is too bright. I moved it to the lower setting but it is still brighter than I would prefer.

***Editor Update***
There are lots of other good options for iPod Alarm Clocks. I would consider some of the others before this one.
The ic 200 will work okay for you if you have it but I would look for other options before purchasing this model.

couldnt give this away

This is the worst product I have ever owned. It has an annoying feature that detects motion to turn off the radio - which I dont want and you cant turn off. It also so bassy (there is no tone control!??) that you cant understand voice so it was useless as an alarm radio for me to wake up to the news. So I tried to give it to my son when he needed an ipod docking station. It was too bassy for him too so he wasnt interested. Its going in the trash! Wierd "features" you cant turn off and no tone control => totally bogus product.
