Summary: All that I anticipated . Clarity of tone and easy to use. The AM pickes up the stations I want and the FM with the swivel antenna am able to enjoy distant stations. Use it only plugged into the wall. Living in Earthquake territory got 2 sets of batteries. Am able to use controls at night with my glasses off. Highly recommended.
I bought it because we live in what I call a pretty dead zone

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.

Summary: The Sangean PR-D15 is a good radio. Some reviewers have indicated that this radio is less sensitive than the Sangean PR-D5. This is not the case...what produces these conclusions is the unfortunate soft muting of weak signals on the part of the DSP software. Although this is fine for the listener that has no interest in weaker a.m. daytime radio signals, it is a negative for folks that do want to listen to such a signal.
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: AM reception at night or day is almost nonexistent and I live in central Florida, near Orlando. This was my main reason for this purchase, I wanted to listen to AM! A dial light comes on every time you adjust the volume, why? Also, there is no treble or bass control and the sound tends to be bass heavy. The volume control know has graduated clicks and the very first click renders the volume a bit too loud for my tastes.
Summary: Was so happy to get this "superior" radio. Am hearing the words to songs for a change and listening to the radio is a pleasure for a change. I was glad to find this with a handle and battery option and I use both. I like the way it looks and I've found the functions easy to use. I have not set the clock or used the alarm though. I thought I would have to adjust the base/treble but I like the factory settings.
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.
