If you're anything like us, the idea of waking up to music is enticing, but we keep our alarm clock set on the buzzer mode because there's nothing worth listening to on FM radio. The Aluratek Internet Radio Alarm Clock with Built in WiFi (yes, that is the actual product name) has no such limitations, allowing you to wake up to Internet radio, music on a networked PC, a connected USB flash drive of MP3s, or even plain-old FM radio. The total feature package of the Aluratek ($200 list) is impressive, and our experience was sweetened by the fact that we had mostly trouble-free wireless performance whether we were streaming Internet radio from Albania or our personal MP3 collection.

In other words, don't expect a lot of sonic dazzle from the Aluratek--audiophiles are better off with a more substantial system such as the or a digital audio receiver that connects to a home theater system, like the . But if you're just looking to casually listen to some tunes when you wake up or before you go to bed, the Aluratek's excellent feature set and reliable performance certainly make it worthy of your consideration.
