Playlist just ran my review of the iLuv i177 and JBL On Time
. I liked the iLuv, but was just sort of lukewarm on the JBL. Yeah, it had better sound, but the alarm clock was the suck, and that industrial design, while pretty to look at, makes for a shitty bedside accessory. Who needs spatial sound in an alarm clock? I mean, aren't you just going to shut it off as soon as possible? And do you really want to wake up to a subwoofer? I don't. But I suppose it makes a nice all-in-one unit for dorm dwellers.
