My bedroom has become the favorite room in the house since the renovation. Until then, it was just a place to sleep. Now I watch TV, read a book, and just relax for hours at a time. The only thing missing was a stereo, but I didn’t want to clutter the limited surface area with a big stereo. All I needed was a speaker to plug my iPod – something small to fit on my nightstand I just built. I just discovered that my Moon Beam alarm clock no longer worked, so I wanted a vintage/mid-century modern inspired speaker/alarm clock combo that looks good, is functional and doesn’t break my bank – is there such a thing?

I have seen cute retro looking iPod speakers at Urban Outfitters. Bingo! I found a perfect one! It’s called “Crosely Table Alarm Clock Speaker.” It is a tabletop alarm clock with a plug at the back for an mp3 player. It is also an FM/AM radio. The description sounded good, but there was no customer reviews at the time. I am one of those people who research and read reviews before purchasing anything, so I was a bit worried. I liked the design and it seemed functional, but what about quality? I looked around some more, but didn’t find anything I liked, so I placed an order.

I love the look!

I have to admit – it’s cute, but it’s not as functional as I thought. First of all, there is no snooze function – I usually hit snooze button at least five times before I wake up, so this is a big problem. The clock face doesn’t light up like the Moon Beam clock, so I can’t tell the time when it’s dark. The alarm is hard to set. The speaker works fine – I wasn’t expecting a super sound quality from a $58 speaker/clock anyway, so I am satisfied with the speaker. It even came with a plug. I am keeping it for now, until I find something better.
