The ZN9 features several innovative solutions, including wake and sleep to your Zune(tm) music or AM/FM radio presets, a 7-5-2 feature for separate weekday and weekend alarm times, and an extra large, backlit LCD display with dimmer. With our Reson8 speaker chambers, you&rsquo;ll be able to enjoy stereo sound around the clock. The new ZN9... treat yourself and your Zune right.&quot;</em> <br /><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/500/zt/auto/1209525733.usr307.jpg" alt="" /><br />I have been absolutely dying to have something like this. Ever since I got a Zune, I wanted a really nice alarm clock dock. I even remember trying to use WinAmp and my desktop back in high school to achieve a perfect marriage of alarm clock and audio. <a href="http://www.ihomeaudio.com/products.asp?product_id=10250&amp;dept_id=1006">iHome&rsquo;s ZN9 speaker dock</a> looks absolutely stunning and at $99.99 it&rsquo;s priced as well as you could possibly hope for something like this. Obviously we&rsquo;ll have to wait and see when it comes out how it sounds but I definitely will have one of these in my bedroom. <br /><br /><a href="http://zuneinsider.com/archive/2008/04/29/coming-soon-from-ihome-zune-dock-alarm-clock-dock.aspx">Ceser also mentions on Zune Insider</a> another dock for the Zune coming from iHome but I couldn&rsquo;t find anything for it on their site. Here&rsquo;s what he says is coming though: <br /><br /><em>&quot;ZN10 AM/FM Table Radio - a beautifully designed, retro-classic with rotary dials set in a rich, wood speaker cabinet, the ZN10 allows consumers to listen to the radio or Zune, which charges when docked. A line in jack with included patch cord enables owners to play other CD and MPs players.&quot;</em></p><p>I can't wait to see what this one looks like!</p>

Default Woot!!!!

I pre-ordered one of these earlier this week. We have 3 iHomes for the iPods my wife and sons have, and they have great sound. I can't wait until June when I get mine!!!

BTW, the table radio is just like the iPod one....iHome used to have it on the site, then took it off about a month ago.

Great news... but I am a Zune 80 owner in the UK and I need something like this, I currently have my old iPod dock and using the zune dock with a av cable... its a bit of a patch job. Looks like no shipping to UK unless a 3rd party does.

Each of my kids has an iHome for their iPod, with the 'Reson8' sound system and it sounds very nice for such a little alarm clock (at such a reasonable price). Definitely recommend checking this out!

Looks pretty slick - I've been using the same alarm clock for about six years, and have been pondering getting something more high tech...this looks like it might be a nice solution. Although I have to admit that while I like waking up to music, I also like hearing the local news in there, so I might keep it on radio...which kind of defeats the purpose of this.

funny you mention that...I also would continue to wake up to the morning show so that I can hear the traffic, weather, events coming up, etc. But this is great when I need to laundry and stuff...I can listen to not the radio
