Our take on the TEAC SR-LUXi

by Ralph Graves

Now here's a bright idea: combine a clock radio, iPod dock and table lamp to reduce clutter on your nightstand or desktop.

Adjustable illumination is easy on the eyes
This modern-looking system from TEAC features powerful LED lights to produce directional illumination. And their intensity can be adjusted, so you get just the amount of light you need. Across the base of the SR-LUXi is a large, easy-to-read digital time display.

More than just an illuminated dock
Yes, when you dock your iPod or iPhone and turn on the lights, the SR-LUXi looks like a sophisticated display case. But it does much more than that. The system automatically charges your docked player, so you can enjoy your music for hours. A built-in FM tuner provides additional listening options, and an auxiliary input lets you play other portable devices.

So how does it sound?
We could say it's the best-sounding lamp you're likely to hear, but that hardly does it credit. The SR-LUXi features two 1-inch full-range speakers, as well as two 1-inch passive speakers to reinforce the lows. You'll enjoy clear, detailed sound. And with six EQ presets, you can adjust the sound to better suit your music and taste.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I am very satisfied with this product. It is exactly what I was looking for without spending a lot of money. I wanted something to charge my iPod and also be able to listen to music and radio stations. I do not use the alarm but like the idea of having a clock.
Nice design with a little night light if needed.
I find the remote buttons hard to press.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
My daughter was given this as a Christmas gift. She loves it. It is perfect in every way. I searched very long and stumbled upon this item. She loves the feature of being able to dim very low the digital clock display as she insists upon total darkness to sleep. She really loves the light feature. The speaker system is adequate for its size. I totally recommend this as my daughter is headed off to college this fall and it was selected for that reason, price, size, and functions. We are both totally satisfied.
