With the automatic time setting function in your clock radio, you do not ever have to set the time. The clock synchronises with radio signals automatically, even when it is switched off. It updates itself within one minute when there is an immediate need for adjustment, and makes routine synchronisations with radio signals to ensure it keeps accurate time always. From the first time you take the clock radio out of the box, to the time a power outage occurs, you can depend on your Philips product to give you the right time, fuss-free and reliably.
Always be assured of being able to read the display, whatever time of day it is. The built-in light sensor reads the intensity of ambient light and then determines how bright the display needs to be to ensure clarity. During the day, or under strong lighting, the brightness automatically increases so you can see the display easily against the surrounding flood of light. At night, or under very low light conditions, the display softens, allowing you to look at the display without discomfort, and letting you sleep without being disturbed by glare.
DAB (Digital Audio Broadcasting) digital radio is a new way of broadcasting radio, in addition to FM analogue transmission, via a network of terrestrial transmitters. It provides listeners with more choices and information delivered in clear and crackle-free sound quality. The technology allows the receiver to lock on to the strongest signal it can find. With DAB digital stations there are no frequencies to remember, and sets are tuned by station name, so there is no retuning on the move.

Simply tune into the station that you want to preset, then press and hold the preset button to memorise the frequency. With preset radio stations that can be stored, you can quickly access your favourite radio station without having to manually tune the frequencies each time.
Dynamic Bass Boost maximises your music enjoyment by emphasising the bass content of the music throughout the range of volume settings - from low to high – at the touch of a button! Bottom-end bass frequencies usually get lost when the volume is set at a low level. To counteract this, Dynamic Bass Boost can be switched on to boost bass levels, so you can enjoy consistent sound even when you turn down the volume.
Start your day the right way by waking up gently to a gradually increasing alarm volume. Normal alarm sounds with a pre-set volume are either too low to wake you up or are so uncomfortably loud that you are rudely jolted awake. Choose to wake up to your favourite music, radio station or buzzer alarm. Gentle wake's alarm volume gradually increases from subtly low to reasonably high in order to gently rouse you.
Backlit LCD display ensures easy viewing and operation in low light conditions, and provides clear information at a glance.
Sleep timer lets you decide how long you want to listen to a radio station of your choice before falling asleep. Simply set a time limit (up to 1 hour) and choose a radio station to listen to while you drift off to sleep. This Philips radio set will continue to play for the selected duration and then automatically switch off to a power-efficient, silent standby mode. Sleep Timer lets you fall asleep to your favourite radio DJ without counting sheep or worrying about wasting power.
Wake up to sounds from your favourite radio station or a buzzer. Simply set the alarm on your Philips Clock radio to wake you with the radio station you last listened to or choose to wake up with a buzzer sound. When the wake up time is reached, your Philips Clock radio will automatically turn on that radio station or trigger the buzzer to sound.
Enjoy a few more moments of slumber for those hard-to-wake-up mornings. When the alarm goes, simply press the repeat alarm button once and doze for another five more minutes. If you want to snooze a bit longer, press the button twice for ten more minutes, and three times for fifteen more minutes – or simply press 6 times for sleep up to 30 minutes longer. As long the alarm is not turned off, you can snooze as many times as you want. Get those much needed minutes of extra sleep, knowing the alarm will always sound again.
The time and alarm are so easy to set up that referring to the Quick Start Guide or Instructions For Use may not be necessary. Simply refer to the Clock radio's silkscreen buttons to set the time and alarm.
