An excellent radio with a rare analog display and auto time set

Summary: I had to return the first RCR-9 due to intermittent muting. The radio would suddenly mute which sometimes be resolved by playing with the volume dial or tapping the radio down on the table. This review is based on the second radio I got. It has worked fine in the week I have owned it.
Summary: Great little atomic alarm clock! Simple design with an easy to read light up display. The set up requires going through a sort of tiered menu system, not unlike many other electronic devices. Be patient and follow the instructions.
Summary: Seemed like a good deal, but was unable to use it as the instructions did not correlate in any way with the display on the clock. I returned it for a refund, but have not heard anything as yet.
Great alarm clock, highly recommend. Throw away instruction book.
Very happy guy, Amazon

Summary: Great clock. Really needed to have a dimmer for the evening and this clock has 7 dimmer settings (I use #2, can see at night but not bright). During the day face easy too see regardless of dimmer setting. Also love the analog and atomic update. The instructions are really, really bad.
Summary: The clock face is great and once set up the automatic time function keeps time perfectly and adjusts for Daylight Savings. Unfortunately, there are also a few major flaws. Everything is controlled by a panel of flush mount buttons on the top of the radio.
Summary: This this the 3 rd Sangean radio I own (2nd w/ sync to NIST). Use this one in an office setting. Great reception in a metal building that leaves my cell phone at one bar. Love this radio. Highly recommended.
Summary: I'm very pleased with this clock radio. Thanks to previous commenters, I was prepared for the badly-written manual and did manage to set things up fairly easily. Believe it or not, the thing that took me the longest to figure out was where the On/Off button was!
Summary: I bought the clock in September and loved the clock! I had no problem setting it up, as I mainly referred to the reviews on here. I was able to program the column and set the light to the perfect setting, which was 1. But the face on my clock is now stuck at 6:45.
Summary: The atomic clock works great, the radio is very good and the fact that it has a regular clock dial instead of a digital readout is a major plus. The are two issues with the radio: setting and enabling the alarm clock function is not very intuitive - takes time to wrap you head around the setup...
Summary: After a year this is a great clock radio, except for some design flaws. 1. Progaming alarms and turning them off and on is an over complicated task. 2. Major bar on top of the clock is not for the snooze button but the clock light. You tend to blind yourself coming out of a deep sleep. 3.
