Nice

  • Summary: Nice kitchen counter radio. If you like AM talk radio look elsewhere because the AM antenna isn't the greatest.

Poor quality control

Astarte, Amazon
9 November 2008
  • Summary: I purchased this radio for my brother who is handicapped. The USB port was the major attraction because it would allow me to send him music in a format that would be easy for him to use. I also liked the large knobs and simplicity of operation.

Perfect little-old-lady radio.

J. Snodgrass, Amazon

  • Summary: My elderly mother lives in an assisted living community and has lost most of her eyesight to macular degeneration. Finding electronic equipment she can successfully use is a problem with SO MANY gizmos cluttered with small buttons for controlling everything.

CX-166 is noisy. Eergonomics not the best

Edward Shaw "Chief Suspect", Amazon
1 June 2007
  • Summary: As radio, the CX-166 does well on AM, but the FM circuitry is not up to decent standards and an antenna wire dangling somewhere is necessary. It labors even to pick up FM signals from radio stations within 25 miles.
