Ravon i231A

The i231A is a clock radio with iPod and iPhone playback, but no AM or digital radio tuners.

In brief

All-in-one clock radio iPod units are big business, if the response to the Sony Dream Machine is anything to go by. The Ravon i231A is a tad more expensive than its big-name counterpart and has a monochromatic LCD display as opposed to the 7-inch colour unit found on the Sony.

Finished in a piano black coating, the i231A lets you charge your iPod and iPhone from the dock. The device also wakes you up with FM radio. Unfortunately, there's no AM or digital radio tuners included, which would have been nice considering the price.

The i231A retails for AU$329.
