Summary: I've had this radio for about three weeks now, and I'm fairly satisfied. If I could wave a wand to change some features I would, as follows: 1) The buttons to select radio stations are a little awkward; sometimes I have to press them more than once. 2) The sound, just as described by another reviewer, is a little bassy, and there is no tone control. (But, I listen to rock n' roll, so it works out OK.
Summary: Mom was indeed very happy with this K-200. Instantly made her junked her old clock radio. Powerful audio yet small in size. Alkaline batteries only, rechargeable batteries cannot run the unit.
Summary: I read other reviews before purchasing and was aware that voice tones for NPR would be "muted," with heavy bass, not ringingly clear. Almost sent back, but decided I would keep it, as I didn't want to spend an additional $150-200 or more for absolutely best sound in kitchen. Am I sorry? Yes, because I so love listening to my various talk programs--music not so affected.
Summary: Finally! A clock radio that pulls in many FM/AM stations in a steel-sided house! The tone is not adjustable-a little too bass for an audiophile, but just fine for playing music for the pets while we're away. The volume puts out an impressive dance-quality oomph, which is fun, and allows for listening with the shower running behind a closed door! Tech support is offered by Amazon and the number is listed on the product page, which is great if you're tech-challenged.
Summary: This is a darn good little radio. And just got the hot pink because am so tired of black or white. Guys even get tired of black and white! Reception better than the construction radio we were using.
Summary: We purchased this to replace an old Sony under cabinet radio which started getting only one FM station. This radio has excellent FM reception. It the only FM radio I have ever purchased that can receive clearly all the stations I can get in my car radio. It is also attractively designed. It is easy to program presets and use the timer. My product did keep the presets when unplugged and moved.
Summary: Our six year old loves music so we got her this radio to keep in her room and listen to music. She loves it. She spends more time in her room now that she can play her own music. The sound quality is excellent.
Digital radio that really zones it on the clearest channels with easy-setting alarms

Summary: Sangean makes a great product - after buying the first digital radio for my bathroom (larger version), I bought 2 more to have in the kitchen and family room. The tower-like clock makes it so easy to read even at night.
Summary: Has been a great radio although I did have it repaired under warranty as it blew a speaker. Repair was fast and free and problem has not returned. Considering I listen to mostly NPR in my bathroom, it hasn't been played loud. Reception is first class, love that it has RDS like the stereos in my car, but mostly I love the small footprint. I have it in white but would have liked another color. Sound quality is excellent as is bass response for such a small unit.
