I was in my local Home Depot, and they had iHome IH5's on clearance for $50. My wife has wanted a new stereo and alarm clock for the bedroom, so we thought that we would give the IH5 a try. We tried it at home, and it really sounds great. For $50, I doubt that you can find a better sounding, more featured stereo/alarm clock with iPod integration. We picked up a brand new remote on ebay for about $12 shipped.
