For some time, the iHome clock radio, $99.99, was the top-selling iPod alarm clock , but it seems there's finally some serious competition on the market. Created by XtremeMac, the slightly more expensive Luna iPod alarm clock, $149.95, is the first alarm clock for iPod to integrate an on-screen menu system. Like the iHome, the Luna design offers a chic and unassuming addition to your nightstand, and its functions allow you to listen to your favorite music and playlists in the morning instead of the dreaded buzzer.

The Luna lets you sleep and wake to your iPod or the radio, and also serves as a complete speaker system for your home or office. For more about the Luna alarm clock, just

Luna's menu system provides user-friendly control over all of the alarm and audio functions and the players are controlled by four large (but chic!), knobs located on the top of the unit. The unit can be controlled by the included wireless remote which features advanced audio and alarm functions, meaning you can "hit the snooze" via remote.

In addition to being a customizable alarm clock, Luna is a complete audio system powered by two full-range speakers and a powerful two-channel amplifier. There is also an AUX-IN port for connecting audio devices without a dock connector such as the iPod shuffle, older iPod models or other MP3 players.
