Be careful -- may fail in a year or so

Bart Higgins, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this two years ago to bring in distant AM stations, and in that respect it's excellent. FM sound is also good; and it's handsome, to my eye anyway. But recently it's developed a problem: the "Step/Band" button on the top row that switches it between FM, AM, and Aux has started to fail.

Absolutely the Best!

Epal, Amazon

  • Summary: I cannot say enough good things about this radio. I am addicted to "talk radio" and live approximately 170 miles from my favorite AM station. Every radio we have bought, including the pricy ones, had a lot of static on distant AM stations to the point you couldn't listen to the station.

First exchange, then refund. :(

  • Summary: I bought this radio based on it's reputation for outstanding AM band reception. I was impressed by the many reveiwers who raved over it's ability to receive distant broadcasts. I did take note of the good number of bad reveiws as well but took my chances anyway and placed my order.

No AM stations at all

Gregg, Amazon
5 August 2014
  • Summary: Overall this is a high quality radio, using quality components. The reason for the 3 stars is that there is no AM reception. I have tried both in my office and at my home. Funny though how my $10 Kmart special picks up all the AM stations just fine.

Compact w/ good sound

  • Summary: When deciding whether to buy a product, I'll often read the lower ratings first. I did that with this radio too, and was almost dissuaded from buying it. BUT, it's one great little radio!

com and my area should be able to get good reception for this station

Laura Bergang "Lala B", Amazon
16 July 2014
  • Summary: Okay--I am technologically challenged so perhaps my expectations are unrealistic. I live 35 miles from KQED-FM in San Francisco; I listen primarily to this station. I just looked on radio-locator.com and my area should be able to get good reception for this station.

Perfect for What I Needed

Jeffrey, Amazon
24 May 2014
  • Summary: Good sound quality, simple operation, good reception. Much better than its predecessor at filtering out stray static some of our house lights seem to generate. I think the dimensions provided by Amazon are wrong. It's 10W X 5 1/2H X 2D. Only criticism is that it lacks a carry handle.

really not what I was hoping for

bobwhite, Amazon
8 April 2014
  • Summary: I was hoping for better reception since it would be used in an interior office. What I got was a one station radio even with the antenna fully extended. One of the reasons I decided on this radio was their bragging about such wonderful reception on distant stations - not true.

Woth the effort

nicholas mortelliti, Amazon

  • Summary: My office has metel walls and all my bumb boxes at home could not tune into the stations I like to listen to. I purchased the Sangean PR-D5 because it was advertised as something that can meet my needs.
