I have owned several radio alarm clocks and I have found them all fairly intuitive to operate - no instructions needed, though sometimes it takes a short time of playing around to fill in the operating details.
The alarm buzzer is generated by the audio part of the radio and so those clock radios that do have a buzzer with adjustable volume it is controlled by the radio volume control. In this case it is usually the case that falling asleep to the radio with the volume turned down results in not being woken next morning because the alarm isn't loud enough.
Switching from radio alarm to buzzer is usually intuitive but in the absence of instructions there will be a limited number of switch combinations to play around with.
We also have this problem. Found this info in the product's Q&A on the website: http://answers.thesource.ca/answers/9026/product/1218694/centrios-centrios-ipod-iphone-clock-radio-white-questions-answers/questions.htm
"Ok. there is a way that you can LOWER the wakeup radio volume. turn on
the radio (forget about the alarm right now) and go to the station that
you want. when you get to the station, you should be able to press the
'skip/fast forward' button on the remote. when you do this, number 5
should show up beside the station #. When you do this, it lowers the
overall volume of every volume level, so now level 19 is equal to volume
level 9/10, which for me is loud enough to wake me, but not give me a
heart attack! so, now when the alarm goes of, the volume is a lot lower.
BUT if you want to wake up to your ipod, this method will NOT work, it
will still be up at level 19. so when you turn on your ipod, it will be
really LOUD. again, this only works with the radio."
Also if you are waking to ipod and not radio this was in the reviews: "Fooled with it for a bit and discovered that
you have to turn down the volume of the iPod first before putting it on
the dock. We've tried it a few times just to make sure and it worked
Still not a perfect solution, but a great improvement. Hope this helps someone.
When you set the alarm, turn the volume button on the front counter-clockwise (volume down) until it clicks. Darth will then wake you with one of three extremely LOUD, over-modulated soundbites or the electronic "beep-beep-beep" alarm . You can select the different soundbites/alarm with the "SELE-AL" button on the back. The only problem is, you can't tell which one you've selected until the alarm goes off. Cheap design.
Hold CLOCK SET button down, press HOURS and MINUTES until you get the right time, release CLOCK SET button. This radio alarm unhelpful calls the ON/OFF button "STANDBY"! To turn it on, press the STANDBY button so the standby light is on!
The clock radio is mediocre, according to at least 15% of owners. First, the radio reception lacks
clarity and the sound is tinny. Second, there are many small
buttons and it's impossible to tell which is which in a dark
room. Third, because the volume and radio tuner are adjusted
by moving a dial, it is easy to accidentally move the device
and turn down the volume as a result. This can be a problem
if you've set the clock-radio alarm and the radio volume is
too low.Kindly check these first.
