If You’re Looking for a New Bedside Clock Radio…

I’ve used a Bose Wave Radio as my alarm for years.  My wife, however, has a cheap Radio Shack thingy with the world’s most annoying alarm.  I’ve been thinking hard about getting something that’s a little more gentle on the ears, but now that I’ve seen this thing, I may give her the Bose and get this one for myself.

It’s the Yamaha TSX-B72, which, admittedly, is COMPLETE overkill for a clock radio.  But you have to admit it’s really cool.  And for $200, it’s way cheaper than a new Bose.  I wonder if there’s a way for it to tune in Internet broadcasts?
