This stylish DAB/FM RDS digital stereo clock radio comes with a dock for an iPod. The iDream enables you to listen to your iPod through its stereo speakers and charges your iPod at the same time. The iDream offers 20 station presets as well as a clever auto timeset, whilst its large screen offers enhanced visibility, displaying the time and radio station against a blue backlight which can be dimmed for preference. You can also select the clock to stay on screen whilst tuned into your favourite radio station unlike other DAB clock radios on the market that default to the details of the station you are listening to.

All major functions can be controlled by the easy-to-navigate menu or by remote control, enabling you to choose whether you wake up to your iPod, the radio or a buzzer. There are also adjustable snooze and sleep timers.

iDream is compatible with iPods

iPod Docking Facility

The iDream is more than just a clock radio. Functions include the iPod docking facility enabling you to play your personal music collection via the stereo speakers (2 x 2.4 watts). The Alarm function allows you to choose to wake up to FM, DAB, iPod or buzzer. The iDream will also enable you to listen to your iPod whilst it charges.

What is DAB Radio?

DAB stands for Digital Audio Broadcasting, this is a way of broadcasting radio digitally via a network of transmitters. It provides listeners with more choice, better sound quality and more information.

Because of the way DAB technology works, broadcasters can transmit many more stations than ever before. Listeners in most major towns and cities in the UK can receive between 30 and 50 radio stations with a digital radio, in many cases thats more than double whats available on analogue. Because digital radio uses the spectrum more efficiently than analogue, it is possible to broadcast more channels using the same frequency, making room for broadcasters to expand their station portfolios.

Less Noise

DAB digital radio delivers improved sound quality. The technology allows the receiver to lock on to the strongest signal it can find and ignore everything else. This eliminates the hiss, crackle and fade so familiar on analogue radio.

Ease of Use

A DAB digital radio will tune to a station at the touch of a button. No more fine tuning a station to get the best reception. A DAB set allows the listener to scroll through a list of available stations by name - then tune in by pressing the select button.
