    I'm a morning person, so getting up is not a problem for me. But I hate, I hate to hear an alarm clock. I usually awake minutes before it goes off, but if it goes off, then I'm evil. [​IMG].
    LOL. Me and mornings, on the other hand, have a violent confrontation every day. ~H

    Sunlight.

    I wish I had that luxury.

    I get up while it is still dark. I just use my cellphone as an alarm clock.

    Polk Audio IES2. An engineering sample back from my days working there. Not the prettiest thing in the world, but great sound for the small iPod dock that it is.

    The Swedish au pair has an alarm clock. When the covers start bobbing up and down, it's time to wake up.

    I use the "Sonic Boom" that I picked up a few years ago. It's big and not very attractive, but it makes a God-awful screech and shakes the bed, making it pretty much impossible to sleep through.

    BioBrite Sunrise Alarm Clock. Even if I shut off the alarm, the light gradually turns on in 15 minutes; I find that light works better than noise for getting me out of bed.

    I have one of these on my bedroom dresser [​IMG] Horribly inaccurate and scares the Bejezus out of me every morning so I also have a normal clock on my other night stand.

    I use this called Math Alarm Clock. Makes you do math problems to hit the snooze button. It's fucking annoying and always wakes you up.

    I have a Boston Acoustics Recepter. Wish it had an iPod dock, but rockin' sound.


    Love my Recepter. Ain't they great?

    wehrle commander. solid brass construction. loud as hell.

    I have one of those too, it sounds more like a fire alarm than an alarm clock. One problem with it though, it runs so loudly it is impossible to sleep in the same room as the clock so the alarm is kind of pointless in the first place.

    This is for people who just need to be pulled from slumber in some way, not for people who truly suffer in the mornings. We have a more, er, delicate problem -- that of finding something that will wake us up that we won't destroy. I would destroy this, no doubt. ~ H
