Summary: I love it! Very attractive & great sound quality. Perfect vintage look with clear audio on both AM & FM dials. Only thing I didn't realize was that the black surround is wood, which I actually really like.
Summary: What a great little radio this is! I purchased it as a Christmas gift for my mother to listen to in her breakfast room. There is actually a small "radio shelf" that is built into her 1940's house and this radio fits in perfectly with the room. It simply sounds amazing! Better than a Bose unit that I have at home. The reception is excellent even in an urban city with a lot of overhead wires. We did not even have to extend the aerial for good reception.
Summary: Nice looking little radio , exceptional audio with good base and highs . . Excellent am/fm reception . . Will play loudly without distortion . . Not expensive either for the quality of performance it delivers. .
Summary: This radio for its price provides a great "mellow" sound. My old Bose Radio stopped working and I decided to replace it with this and truly this radio for the price is amazing. I don't miss the other radio now...This satisfies my desire for a mellow sound. One thing to know: it is NOT the big boxy kind of radio from the 1940's or 50's ..much smaller but it does have those design characteristics. I like its analog tuning "needle" ..thats kewl.
Summary: I'm writing this review because my wife gave me this item as a gift for my 33 birthday. I love this radio. I like the vintage look of it and how loud it can get. The only thing I didn't like is tuning in to certain stations. Sometimes you have tinker or be at a certain distance to have a clear audio so you don' t have static interference, but either than that this is an amazing radio to have no matter what age you are.
Summary: Superb radio. Unlike you have ever heard before. Deep bass, excellent mid-range, good highs. Handles aux in well(I hooked up a cassette deck) and the sound was excellent. Most of Crosley stuff is cheap, but this particular radio is well worth the money. It has a fine tuner section to it----a very durable radio.
Awesome Radio with that great vintage look but with modern sound and technology

Summary: I love this radio. It's perfect for my garage so I can listen to music while I'm wrenching on the car. I like the fact that I can hook up my iphone or ipod and play my music if I want to. The sound is great. Clear and crisp sound. And the look of it is the best part. My grandma thought that I had bought a old transistor radio but when she found out it was a new radio she was surprised. I'm glad that I decided to buy this.
Summary: I gave this to my friend for Christmas because he used to enjoy listening to NPR on this old transistor radio while he worked. Not a cool vintage transistor, but something from probably 10-15 years ago. I'm not saying it didn't have charm, but it wasn't like the gems from the 50s. Anyway, I figured this would be a nice upgrade for him, plus he could play his iphone through it. Also I liked the styling of this radio and figured he'd digg it too.
Okay, but not nearly as good as the cheaper Sangean WR-11

Summary: I frequently use my laptop at my kitchen counter and I like to stream music while I work. I'd been plugging my computer into a JBL 200ID iPhone speaker dock, but I was getting tired of having almost no audible bass in my music. I wanted to get a better sound without spending a fortune, but there were few speakers for $100 or less that were an improvement over the JBL.
