The Eton iPod dock looks extremely stylish, especially in the black. The silver speaker and dial really stand out in black. The dock has a blue screen, which displays the settings, including the radio station and time. While this screen looks nice, you may find it hard to read, and you can’t adjust the backlighting. Also, the screen is extremely bright in a dark room, which means that you may want to turn this device to the wall to keep it from waking you up at night.
The setup of the iPod dock is pretty simple. The speaker is located on the front of the device. It also has sleeper timer, alarm clock and clock buttons. Unlike traditional iPod docks, however, these buttons are extremely small, which make the device look better. It may, however, prove to be hard to use if you are used to the larger buttons.
The snooze button is located on the top of the device, and it is long like standard snooze devices. It has a 3.5 mm auxiliary line. This allows you to hook up either a CD player or a different type of MP3 player. The dock is reminiscent of older radios with its boxy look.
One problem with the device body is that it doesn’t have any type of external speaker, RCA or subwoofer jacks. You only have a line out jack.
