Accustomed to listening with headphones or earphones, in the tests carried out Sony ICF-DS11iP was able to play our favorite songs and playlists with numerous nuances and also an audio power not possible on the earphones. While not equipped with a subwoofer, a component not essential for a radio alarm clock, the Sony dock can offer good performance even for the bass. The effect can be further improved by pressing the Mega Bass button which offers an extra starting point for low tones. No problem even for the medium and high frequencies that benefit from reproduction via the two integrated speakers. The audio quality decreases for when we set the volume to the highest values, in this case in fact the audio shows distortions. It should be noted that the deterioration occurs only at volume thresholds that are far too high for listening in a room or, moreover, on the side of the bed as an alarm clock, a standard position for the installation of a device of this type. At 2/3 of the volume, the quality is still more than acceptable and the output power is sufficient for a party in a medium-small environment, much more than what you can expect from a radio alarm clock.
