In the middle of the dock is a section where the mp3 player sits. At the base of this section is a series of pins that power the mp3 player and allow it to connect with the speakers. To the left of this is a red hexagonal receiver for remote control devices and to the right is a volume control knob.

Below this section is a digital clock, to the right of which are the clock control buttons which allow an alarm to be set. To the left of the entire unit is a power cable, and at the base of the unit are two oval shaped feet.
