This one was a mistake

Jessica Salmonson "paghat.com", Amazon
21 November 2013
  • Summary: If you misplace the remote you're doomed. It has no fine tuning ability and skips past stations too easily. I wanted a radio I could use a lot and move between stations easily, but it's the hardest radio I ever had for changing stations. I read lots of reviews and thought I'd made a good choice but nobody even mentioned it had ONLY a remote control without which the thing doesn't work at all. My screw-up, or what comes from buying stuff sight unseen.

Great HD radio sound

zen1, Amazon

  • Summary: Pros: Great HD radio sound. Power to fill an entire floor of a house. 2 alarms can be set for weekdays only, weekends only, every day, one time only. Cons: Trouble picking up very weak FM stations, even with a large external antenna. No battery backup, I worked around this by plugging it into battery backed UPS power inverter for my computer.

set up clock

  • Summary: Twice the radio turned off with the message to set the clock - a small annoyance. Any suggestions; I used the remote to set the clock.

Not so happy customer

Carol A. Yohe, Amazon
16 October 2012
  • Summary: I returned the first radio because it turned itself off. The second radio worked well for the first couple of weeks and began turning itself off. When I contacted the company I was told, Too bad, you're out of time. So I have a radio that works well outside. I live in southwestern Pennsylvania. Outdoor radio listening is limited to June thru September. The rest of the year the HD radio is a basement decoration...silent until spring.

So sad for a Sangean

The Bracha, Amazon
25 September 2011
  • Summary: I've had and have some great portable Sangean radios. This is truly an anomaly. Hire a computer guru to read the book to set it up. No kidding. I assumed that I would get a great HD signal in West LA. NOPE. This is the most expensive, poor signal radio I can imagine buying. Oh Well. Maybe I will move to Alaska and it will work better there, I still have the book. Remember the flashing 12:00 on the VCRs, same thing here.

two defective units in a row

Barry B, Amazon

  • Summary: I received two defective units of this model in a row. First one simply died within minutes. Second one cuts out on a regular basis after a year of normal, gentle use. Can this be a coincidence?

Great Product at a Reasonable Price!

Mike's Girl, Amazon
21 June 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this radio as a Father's Day gift for my husband and I have to say, we were pleasantly surprised! The order arrived quickly, in great condition and the radio was a breeze to set up. The wood cabinet is exactly that, no veneer or plastic look alike. We listen to it daily, the sound is chrystal clear but we're limited on HD in our area. The best part is that we had the opportunity to cheer the Bruins on to the Stanley Cup Championships!!

Over priced and under performing

jennmapa, Amazon
29 March 2011
  • Summary: I was really disappointed when I found how few stations I could bring in even with their antenna's attached. I was equally disappointed that the control of the radio was primarily from the remote. My previous $30 Sony actually worked better!
