Summary: This radio was billed as being able to pick up difficult stations. I bought it because we live in what I call a pretty dead zone. We still only get two country radio channels. They are usually clearer than they used to be, but still sometimes won't come in. I kept it because it's better than any other radio I've tried, but honestly it isn't all that great.
Probably the best little AM - FM radio I've ever owned

Summary: Probably the best little AM - FM radio I've ever owned. It is little hard on batteries but if you start out with a fresh set in radio, take a fresh set with you and rotate out batteries every day you could get 12 hrs listening time daily for 2 weeks on thos two sets of batteries.
Summary: After reviewing many smaller radios I bought this one. The reasons are great sound from these speakers, great digital signal strength from the antenna. The rechargeable batteries I use can recharge inside the radio while plugged in. And you can plug in an aux jack. Plus this has been a reliable brand.
Summary: After looking all over for a decent radio, irrespective of price, I settled on the Sangean PR-D15. First, I wanted stereo, and since the days of boom boxes has passed, there’s not much left out there. I’m generally satisfied, but rated this as average for the following reasons: AM is only fair. I live 18 miles from a large city center and most of the stations are very weak. At night, when powerful far-away stations can usually be received, I get almost nothing.
Summary: This is a great radio. Looks much better in person than the picture. Sound is excellent. I am able to receive an FM station that is about 70 miles away and has a very weak signal. No other radio that I have tried was able to receive it at all, including $200 to $300 radios. The owner's manual could be much better written and more accurate. I read it in all the languages to see if the translation was better in any of the languages, it was not.
Summary: The AM sensitivity was not as good as I had expected. One AM station that I listen to came in worse on this radio, than on the radio it replaced. This is one of the strongest stations in the area, and should have boomed in. My PR-D7 does a much better job with AM. One the other hand, this radio is great on FM, and has numerous features such as tone adjustment, and loudness control that makes listening to FM stereo a good experience. There is plenty of volume as well.
Summary: A quality piece of electronics. Solid construction! The plastic body is unusually thick. Like I said, solid. No buzzing from vibrating thin parts or loose fitting pieces here. Handle and antenna snap into place and stay there! Buttons have solid/positive feel. Reception is outstanding here in Chicago with many weak/overlapping stations. Stereo is surprisingly good for a smaller unit.
Summary: Another great Sangean radio, I have three. Being able to select preset stations in a portable radio is simply great since I have a number of favorite stations. The radio is very light, the sensitivity is quite good, far better than most radios. Controls are simple and intuitive.
