Waking to Music

Inexpensive clock radios do not have separate slumber and wake-up volume settings. However, with a small, easily fitted circuit you can go to sleep with quiet music and still be sure of waking up on time. This is achieved without the cumbersome fitting of a second potentiometer. Instead, the circuit boosts the volume level somewhat relative to the set level. For this purpose, the ground lead of the volume pot is opened and a trimpot is inserted.
