Superior Internet Radio, Inferior FM, Controls & Remote

Ian Hardcastle, Amazon
29 September 2013
  • Summary: The WFR-1 is a good internet radio. I upgraded to the WFR-1 from a Grace Mondo. Compared with the Mondo, the WFR-1 sounds better and works better as an internet radio. It was way faster to set up on my WiFi network. It connects to the selected station and buffers much more quickly, and stations drop out less often. The WFR-1 needs work, however.

easy to use

Cesar A. Burneo, Amazon

  • Summary: I have three Grace, one logitech, and one vtech internet radios. The Sangean is the best. It was easy to set up, the remote has a memory for 10 stations just by pressing one of the 10 buttons. Very useful, specially in the evening or when waking up in the middle of the night when nobody feels eager to search for stations. The WIFI sensitivity is adequate. The sleep feature, essential in a radio, is easy to set up.

Mostly good

kris beattie, Amazon

  • Summary: I had previously ordered a Grace Mondo, which would not connect to the wi-fi, so returned it and got the Sangean. This connected immediately, and has never had any trouble since. My only reservations: anytime it is unplugged, even for a minute, it loses the date/time info. Resetting isn't difficult, but is annoying. The other problem is that it uses something called Frontier.

Sangean WFR-1

Bobp, Amazon
13 July 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this after visiting my buddy who had one. I couldn't believe the sound quality it had. I needed something for out at the pool. You can't buy a ghetto blaster anymore, and I don't know how to use an I-Pod, let alone having to buy and install all the songs on one. So when I saw this I thought-BINGO. The only real shortcomming on this is it's definitely an indoor use item. Nowhere near the power needed for outdoor use.

good radio but bad instructions

joel, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a great radio has a few flaws but otherwise it does it all good sound and looks. The only thing is the light stays on all the time,the instructions are hard to understand and they need to be rewritten. But besides this it plays great the control screen could be a little bigger it brings in stations from all over the world get ready to find every station you can think off you'll enjoy the radio for years to come joel

Great Product

DPN, Amazon

  • Summary: I don't usually write reviews, but this product deserves one. It is a truly amazing radio. It was very easy to set up. The connection to my wireless router was as simple as most other wireless devices. I am amazed some reviewers found the set up difficult. The sound quality is exceptional. I have a Bose system and this device is truly comparable. I like the ability to create "favorites" from my tablet or desktop. They appear instantly on the radio.

Minor but annoying

Jacques Devy Gottlieb, Amazon
21 November 2009
  • Summary: Using the Sangean WFR1 Internet radio a couple of weeks already. It is easy to use and it was easy to set up. It looks good, too. I would have liked it totally if: 1. Would display the details of the piece being played. Now it displays the name of the station, the country, the quality of transmission, and nothing about the piece being transmitted. 2. Would have the possibility to dim the light of the display, which is too strong and permanent. 3.

Excellent WiFi Radio

tk_seggel "Thomas", Amazon
13 November 2008
  • Summary: I primarily chose this radio over others (including the Logitech Squeezebox) because of its good looks. But it's a very good radio as well. The menu structure is logical, the display is easy to read, there is a cool web interface to easily surf all stations and add them to your favorites. Truly amazing stuff! The sounds is good, though don't expect miracles. It can be a bit boomy at times, but otherwise sounds quite good.

Good internet radio, inadequate alarm options

Michael, Amazon
23 October 2008
  • Summary: I wanted an internet/FM clock radio and this one got some good reviews. Pros: Great retro look, just like the AM radios of my childhood. Beautifully finished real wood case, a single big knob, and a yellow glowing display. The sound is quite good for a tabletop--maybe a bit boomy but that should be fixable by the eq function. The FM reception is helped by a real car-radio-style antenna.
