Awesome Radio with that great vintage look but with modern sound and technology

Ian, Amazon
22 February 2014
  • 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.

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.

Looks great, but not very functional

  • Summary: I don't think this product was ever tested by real people. The unit needs to be both plugged in and have a battery installed (necessary for the clock), the snooze button is so small that you cannot find it when you need it, the clock cannot be seen in the dark, and the sound is nothing beyond what any cheap alarm clock radio will offer. To make matters worse, the alarm would randomly not work for the first year, after that it would never, ever turn off.

Sure, it looks good.

  • Summary: Biggest mistake...I didn't return it. To tune this so you have a clear channel is impossible without hearing stations on either side of what you want. There is the antenna, but no help there, it's at an extreme downward angle and still the station's are "noisy", and I'm talking about the.FM stations here, AM channels do not come in at all. I do not recommend this radio at all unless you like the look and don't want to listen to anything.

Big Sound, Little Box

Robot 2007, Amazon
14 January 2013
  • Summary: Great little system. Easily connected to an ipod or any other auxiliary device. Sound is BIG and crystal clear. The look/aesthetic is spot on; quirky but clean. Controls are way easy to use. Only gripe I had is one of the knobs came off after 2 days and wouldn't stay in place when put back on. Super glue took care of that.

Bought as a gift so far they love it

D. Combs "darasl", Amazon

  • Summary: My inlaws wanted a VERY basic radio. They like that that brand was originally from Cincinatti (maybe China now). They didn't want any bells and whistles... not even an alarm. They are very pleased with the sound quality of this item. They like the look of it and that it is small and fits in the kitchen.

compact radio with a big sound

Mary De Wolf, Amazon
4 January 2013
  • Summary: A small radio but with a big sound. Looks and sounds good. I was pleased with the quality of the sound but the antenna isn't good enough to bring in some hard to reach stations, especially NPR.

Classy good looks with excellent reception and sound

John Robie, Amazon

  • Summary: I needed a radio at work with strong reception, so I could listen to the local NPR station. The Crosley Solo radio fits my needs for a classy antique look, clean clear sound, and excellent reception. I strongly recommend this to anyone who is looking for an excellent antique looking radio.
