It's playing your song.
The JBL On Time™ Micro will make the music on your iPod, iPhone or other MP3 player sound great any time. But mornings are when this system really shines. Wake up to the artist, album, song or playlist you know will get you going – with or without the help of up to seven independent alarms. A bright LCD display and lighted buttons keep navigation simple, an IR remote puts you in control from across the room, and your iPod or iPhone will always be fully charged and ready to go whenever you are. That’s serious convenience, but it’s only part of the JBL On Time Micro story.
The rest is sound – rich, room-filling JBL® sound – the kind of sound you simply wouldn’t expect from a system this size. The JBL On Time Micro is engineered around two JBL Phoenix transducers with computer-optimized equalization that deliver outstanding dynamics and tonal accuracy with minimal distortion. Typical clock radios are appliances designed to get you out of bed in the morning. The JBL On Time Micro is a music system designed to make every morning special.

What’s in the box:
One JBL On Time™ Micro portable loudspeaker dock, one IR remote, one power supply, one FM antenna, one AM antenna one mini cable, one iPod/iPhone adapter
I have been searching a long time for an affordable iPod player and alarm clock. This JBL product certainly fit the bill. Not only does it sound great but it comes with a remote which I have learned to operate in the dark! If the sound from a track gets too loud, I can turn it down without turning over! :) It makes me laugh. The quality of the sound is better than I had anticipated and I would recommend this product to anyone who could use some sleepy-time music.
Time to wake up6/8/2012
Well made unit, wife and I love the multiple alarms, no need to reset the alarm for the weekends, with 7 different alarm times, you can program the entire week. Sound is good, missing a little 'oomph' but good the size of the unit.
An outstanding product6/5/2012
Having read some of the negative comments about JBL on Time Micro, I was a bit concerned. However, when I opened the box and began to set up the speaker dock, I was pleased to realize that there was no reason for concern. All parts and features function perfectly. There is no hum coming from the clock, and the setup is easy. The only thing I find objectionable is the limited number (5) of preset stations. Most users would prefer 10 for AM and 10 for FM. It is a good deal at [$] or less.
Great sound; small package6/5/2012
For it's size, it produces a good deep pleasing sound. It's a shame that the controls are so obtuse. For example, there are 10 Pre-sets for the radio. But to get to station #10, you must press "PS" then 0, then ,1, then 2, etc. Total clicks 11! I made a macro on my L5 remote to turn it into one click. One other significant issue: For an alarm clock that sits next to my bed, I found the lowest volume setting to be too loud. Also, the dock for my ipod seems flimsy and is hard to mount.
My home theater can take a musical break6/1/2012
My initial expectation was just to use the alarm clock function to wake up with Ipod stored music. I enjoy watching TV in bed, so my big screen and home theater are in my bedroom too. Although my current home theather has an Ipod dock, this JBL system just aside the bed gets the Ipod most of the time. The sound is so good and the remote is so convenient that I simply don't bother to move the Ipod to the home theater dock to listen music, the Ipod stays there whenever I'm not wearing it. It's line in input can also make it a superb computer speaker, particularly if it had the option (which it does not have)of being USB powered and to sync with the computer itunes library.
