Froze after 2 years; Sangean says $169 to repair; NO THANKS.

Summary: Constantly froze up from the very beginning; had to unplug and restart constantly, which I did and learned to live with it. Now after only 2 years, that doesn't help anymore so now it's utterly useless. Called Sangean and they told me to try the factory reset option, which I did. Didn't help at all.
Summary: This is my second Sangean radio; I should have learned from the first that their electronics are "sketchy" at best but I am a slow learner. I suppose I was swayed by the positive reviews, but I would encourage you to look elsewhere for your wireless audio.
Summary: The Sangean DDR-63 is a nice looking radio and it sounds great! The radio feels like it's constructed very well; no cheap, flimsy feel to it. The radio was very easy to setup and program. I'm using the radio mostly for Pandora music and other internet music in the upstairs of our home.
It was easy to set up and it worked great with two ...

Summary: I purchased the DDR-63 in Dec 2013. It was easy to set up and it worked great with two exceptions. First, It would occasionally lock-up and require unplugging the power cord and plugging it back in to restore operation. This occurred randomly every two or three weeks.
Summary: I was pleasantly surprised by how nice the unit looked. The pictures do not do it justice. It was very easy to set up and it found my home network without any difficulty. The sound is very good and seems more like a sound system than a simple table radio.
Summary: I liked my first unit so much, I bought a second one. Then the first unit would not stream Pandora, though it had done it perfectly well for a few weeks. When you try to connect to Pandora, it says, unhelpfully, "problem occurred. Please try again later." It has done that for almost a month.
Pandora fails to work, CD player unreliable and terrible support

Summary: I purchased the unit a year ago. Sangean has since replaced it twice for failed CD units (after herculean efforts by me to hold them accountable) and now, also for the second time, the unit has stopped receiving Pandora.
Summary: Good piece of equipment: Good sound from the wifi radio, broadcast radio, and cd player. I haven't used the iPod dock. However, the display is so small, the display text is so small, and the user-friendliness is so lacking that you'll want to mount it at eye level if possible.
Summary: First off; I read all of these reviews and compared every other comparable option I could find before choosing this unit. Wi fi set up was painless, the setup wizard is somewhat helpful. Most importantly, I have a Bose Wave Music system. This unit is no comparison to that whatsoever.
