My first impressions of this dock are good, its small and compact with loads of features. connects and charges my ipod touch 3rd gen no problem, the sound is of a good quality and goes quite high with no distortion, but it doesn't go quiet enough. Its easy to set up and the way you can activate different alarms is great. It comes with a controller and battery, although mine doesn't seem to work which is annoying, if anyone knows how i could get it to work that'll be great. Overall its a good buy but the remote doesn't work.
