Philips DC390/37 Dual-Docking Alarm Clock Speaker Dock
There's a lot to love about the DC390/37 Phillips speaker dock because you can dock an iPod, iPhone or an iPad to it; you can even dock two at the same time. That's right, this dock lets you attach two of them at the same time to charge both while one of them plays.
When you plug in your device, the dock will automatically sync up the time on the unit so you can use the dock as a handy alarm clock, which allows for dual alarm clock settings that can be set for weekdays and weekends exclusively. Wake up to a gentle alarm that gradually increases in volume or set it to play music from one of your devices or the FM tuner.
Like all of the other docks on our list, an auxiliary port allows you to plug in any mp3 player or smartphone device for added versatility. Audio quality on the dock is very good, with 10 watts of power and preset EQ levels that let you adjust the output parameters best suited for the style of music you're playing. There's even a loudness adjust that boosts the low-end for heavier bass. Clarity on these speakers isn't as defined as on the Bose, making it more neutral in the spectrum between lows and highs.
