Sony Dream Machine

Sony Dream Machine alarm clock, with trademark "dream bar" snooze button

Sony Dream Machine is Sony Electronics' long-running line of clock radios. Models range from basic AM/FM models[1] to more expensive models sporting iPod/iPhone docking, a LCD screen, and internet connectivity.

ICF-CL75iP

Described as an assimilation of an alarm clock with a digital photo frame and an iPod dock, the ICF-CL75iP was released in October 2009. Endgadget knocked the limited codec support, but lauded the attractive design and low ($149.95) announced price tag. They also suggested Sony should add Chumby widget support,[2] a wish Sony later granted with their Dash alarm clock. CNet Australia felt that although it was missing some features consumers might expect from stand-alone devices, the combination of functionality makes up for the shortcomings of each of its parts.[3]

ICF-CD3iP

With a round face (designed to hold CDs) and slide-in iPod dock, Gizmodo called the ICF-CD3iP "the most attractive iPhone/iPod Clock/Radio Dock I've seen yet."[4] Laptopmag.com called the model's speakers "subpar", but stated that the "unobtrusive design, retro CD tray, and ease of use make for a good budget bedside companion." [5]
