DAB and FM compatible for a complete radio experience
DAB (Digital Audio Broadcasting) digital radio is, on top of FM analog transmission, a new way of broadcasting radio via a network of terrestrial transmitters. It provides listeners with more choices and information delivered in clear, crackle-free sound quality. The technology allows the receiver to lock on to the strongest signal it can be find. With DAB digital stations there are no frequencies to remember, and sets are tuned by station name, so there is no returning on the move.
Auto-dimming light sensor for comfort viewing experience
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.
Auto time synchronization ensures accurate time without fuss
With the automatic time setting function in your clock radio, you do not ever have to set the time. The clock synchronizes 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 synchronizations 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.

Easy clock set for instruction-free time and alarm setup
The time and alarm are so easy to set up that referring to the Quick Start Guide or Instruction For Use may not be necessary. Simply refer to the Clock radio's silkscreen buttons to set the time and alarm.
Adjustable repeat alarm for flexible extra-snooze time
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.
Sleep timer automatically turns off radio at a preset time
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 stand-by mode. Sleep Timer lets you fall asleep to your favorite radio DJ without counting sheep or worrying about wasting power.
