First iPhone clock with removable speaker



Specifications

The XtremeMac Luna SST that I am reviewing today is a pre-production prototype, but the thing is supposed to be the final design. It has dual alarms and a clock to wake the user to radio, iPod or a buzzer. One of the speakers is removable for placement on a different bedside table for the base unit. The XtremeMac Luna SST will sell for $129.99 when it ships.

In Use

At first glance, the XtremeMac Luna SST looks like most of the other iPhone alarm clocks that will charge and wake you to music from your iPhone, iPod, or other dockable iPod. It also has a 3.5mm input as well. The thing is sized like most other iPhone alarm clocks. It is a bit large making it hard to place on a crowded nightstand.

The coolest feature of the XtremeMac Luna SST is that the speaker to the left of the clock connects with what looks like a phone cord to the main body of the clock. Once you unhook that cable and flip a switch on the bottom of the clock, you can remove the speaker. The XtremeMac Luna SST ships with a long phone cord cable that allows you to put that speaker on the other side of your bed. Not only does that expand the soundstage and offer better sound for the listener, but if you have two people that need to wake it lets the speaker be closer to the other person when the alarm goes off.

The XtremeMac Luna SST has all the settings you expect to find with dual alarms, snooze that can be activated on the detachable speaker or main body, and a large LED backlit clock face. The LED clock is lit with orange LEDs that can be adjusted for brightness. There is nothing worse than a clock so bright you can’t sleep.

The alarm clock runs on AC power, but there is a battery back up for the clock so if power goes out you are still woke up on time. The clock can be set manually or it can simply mirror the time on the iPhone or other device, which is a very nice feature that ensures the time is always right.

XtremeMac also offers an app for the iPhone or iPod touch that integrates the devices into the clock for personalization of the alarm functions. The XtremeMac Luna SST also has a wireless remote control that allows you to control the track, volume, and levels of bass and treble from across the room. The alarm will also control the snooze and mute functions as well as turn each alarm on and off. The remote also has a source control as well.

The sound quality is very good with bass that is as good as any alarm clock dock I have listened too. The bass isn’t deep and thundering like I enjoy, but it is good for a dock. The vocals are clear and the music overall sounds good even if the nuances you hear on headphones and higher quality speakers is missing.

Verdict

Pros

  • Detachable speaker
  • Full function remote
  • Works with an app

Cons

  • Large size makes for a tight fit on some bedside tables.
 

Conclusion

The XtremeMac Luna SST is a very nice alarm clock dock for the iPhone or other Apple devices with a cool removable speaker that can be put on the other side of the bed. The clock works well and has all the features you expect on a high-end docking station.
