Almost Good

Laura Nagle, Amazon
16 April 2014
  • Summary: I suppose this is the best way to go about recording a radio show for later listening, but only just. I find the worst part is the file generation and handling. A three hour show is not recorded as a three hour file; each hour gets its own file, so that show ends up being three separate files to be...

Passable speaker sound quality.

Mario da Silva, Amazon
4 February 2014
  • Summary: Convenient, sensitive FM reception even with antenna kept short.. Stereo recording, but mono, muffled speaker. Best listen with external Speakers. Records good to SD card, only ONE timer setting. The editing firmware is too simple, and confusing to erase single recordings.

A beautifully designed and built MP3 player and radio

Howard Matthews, Amazon
11 August 2013
  • Summary: I bought this primarily to have a portable device to play educational MP3 files stored on SD cards. For this, it fits the bill perfectly. It also has a fine digitally tuned AM/FM radio, and excellent sound quality and volume for a device this size.

Needs Some Refinement

GeoKs, Amazon
23 June 2013
  • Summary: We bought the Sangean for the radio recording function in order to time shift programs which do not have digital versions. There are precious few products in this space (Tecsun - various models, CCrane Witness Plus, and Sony ICZ-R51).

Good overall

Keith "seldom around", Amazon
7 March 2013
  • Summary: I wanted a radio for in the house that is like a car radio. Push buttons. Digital readout. Pre-set buttons. This has that and that's what I like about it. However the sound isn't as high a quality as what you might expect and I'm disappointed in that.

Good, not great, Recording radio

Robert J Stucker, Amazon
16 January 2013
  • Summary: This is a very good radio. Reception is quite good on most stations with nice alarm and tuning features. For a radio this size, sound is good. It is the recorder that needs much work. Although it supports 32GB SDHC cards, it is limited to 999 files. I does not support MP3 ID tags.

Slipping Off the Threshold . . . Into Junk!

Stanley Brookoff, Amazon
30 July 2012
  • Summary: I had this product for approximately a year and a half and for the entire time it was on the threshold between adequate and junk. It's advantages (ability to use flash memory card to record, push-button station selections, timer for recording) were in balance with its disadvantages (extremely poor...

TOO MUCH NOISE!

GR700 1985, Amazon
15 March 2012
  • Summary: SANGEAN PR-D8 I PURCHASED THIS FOR MY WIFE BECAUSE SHE DROPPED AND BROKE THE VERY NICE BUT DISCONTINUED SANGEAN ATS-818CS . THE MANUAL IS UNDERSTANDABLE BUT YOU HAVE TO WORK AT IT. IN ONE DAY I CAN PROGRAM IT, RECORD USING THE TIMER, LISTENING TO FILES AND DELETING THEM FROM MEMORY.
