IF you are in the market for a docking system to pair with your Apple device then check out the XtremeMac Luna SST or Microdock from Imation.

Both the products allow you to charge an iPhone or iPod touch as well as listen to your favourite tunes through the built-in stereo speakers.

The higher-end Luna SST has a dual-alarm clock function and users can choose to be woken up by their favourite music, FM radio or buzzer.

It has a large orange LED digital clock with adjustable brightness and one of the stereo speakers is detachable.

The bundled 2m speaker cable, which looks like a phone cord, should be long enough to allow users to place the speakers on both sides of a bed.

The alarm clock runs on AC power but there is a battery backup for the clock — even if the power goes out you will still be able to wake up on time, claimed the company.

Also bundled with the devices is a wireless remote control which users can use to select the track, adjust the volume, and bass and treble levels from across the room.

Meanwhile, for a simpler docking system there is the Microdock. It does not have a the digital clock but users can download a free XtrememMac app that turns your iPhone and iPod touch into one. The app also has enhanced and customisable alarm functions.

The device comes built-in with a pair of Neodymium speakers and a snooze button is available on the unit to easily silent the alarm once it goes off.

Both products also have an line-in jack for connection an iPod shuffle and other devices.

The Luna SST and Microdock retail for RM499 and RM249 respectively.
