These might fit the bill: NAKAMICHI R-1, Marantz 2010 or 2015, some early Sansui where smaller, Denon, Yamaha & Teac made compact systems with smaller width receivers.

April Music has an all in one with a lamp even), as does Music Hall the Trio. I owned a fabulous clock radio with built in CD player by Teac I think they are still made. If you want higher end you might want to consider finding a Parasouund Z series stack of separates or even the X series from Musical Fidelidity.
I had the same needs. I bought an Arcam Solo Mini, It sounds great, is very easy to use, has a wonderful CD player. One of my favorite features is the various alarm and clock functions. it wakes me up with my favorite FM/npr station.
I tried the Arcam in my main system just for fun to compare it's performance with the ultra expensive stuff. I was amazed at how well it performed as a preamp and as a CD player. Very nice small unit.
