The contemporary style of the iHome iA17 Color Changing Stereo FM Alarm Clock Radio for iPhone / iPod is sure to brighten up any room. The universal dock works with the 1st generation iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and all docking iPod models. It also provides a charge while you listen to your music or when an iPhone / iPod is docked. The alarm clock can wake you with music from your iPhone, docking iPod model or FM radio with six station presets. Plus, the alarm supports the free iHome+Sleep app and paid iHome+Radio app.
The iA17 also features GlowTunes, which provides the translucent white cabinet with a blue, purple, orange or green glow. The digital LCD clock display switches between those four colors as well. The colored lights also have five different display modes: Slow Fade, Favorite Color, Pulse to Music, Fast Change and Color Off. To bring the music to life, the iA17 uses a Reson8 speaker system with passive subwoofer. The resulting big stereo sound, clarity, depth and power are surprising coming from such a small unit.
Ensuring that the iA17 is both flexible and convenient, iHome added an aux line-in for connecting other audio devices, a Daylight Saving Time switch and a Time Sync button that syncs the unit's clock with the always-current clock from an iPhone. iHome even includes a remote control, universal voltage AC adapter that's compatible with worldwide power requirements and a backup battery to keep the clock running if the device loses power for any reason.
