... privately bought a WR-1 prison radio and am very pleased with the quality
18 November 2014
Summary: I privately bought a WR-1 prison radio and am very pleased with the quality. Perhaps those that complain about the excessive bass have a point, although it is fine enough in a larger room. The selectivity and ability to pull in stations is truly superior to anything else that I own.
Summary: I bought this for my son-in-law a couple of years ago. Although it has an analog tuner it works fine. Sure, I would rather have a digital tuner with presets, but as I said, this tuner works fine.
Summary: This radio has it all: Power, a lot of bass, an easy-to-read and well-lit tuning display, simple controls (Volume, Off/AM/FM, Tuning), good reception, classic good looks, reasonable price, plus plenty of plug-ins (headphone jack [mono output], aux-in, etc.) The power is a great surprise!
Summary: Great sound! Bought for family member who needed a simple dial for tuning. Easy to tune, adjust volume, and turn off. You will not be disappointed if you only need AM-FM. Small footprint. It replaced an old Sony Boom box that had big speakers and poor tiny sound. Good price for a quality product.
Summary: I'm very happy with the Sangean WR-1 AM/FM radio I recently purchased. Its metallic silver face and wood grain cabinet give it a high-quality stereo component appearance. which looks great on the table near my armchair.

Summary: At last I have found a radio that does not require an operating manual to set all kinds of gizmos that wake me up, put me to sleep, tell me the time, or make my coffee. The sound is perfect, and it is easy to tune.
Summary: This is a very good looking radio. It's nice to have a product that doesn't come with a whole booklet full of directions. It's so simple to use. The sound is great and I don't notice all the bass that others have mentioned in reviews. I am very happy with this radio and would recmmend it to friends.
Summary: I got this radio to replace one of those cheap tabletop radios found at the local drug store. The Sangean WR-1 definitely has better FM reception than anything costing less than $50, including comparative radios made by Sony.
Summary: I also own a Tivoli Model One. This Sangean far surpasses the Tivoli. The sound is mellow and clear. I really like the old fashioned vernier tuning dial. It's also illuminated. In a side by side test, the Sangean and Tivoli do great with FM reception, but on the AM side, the Sangean picks up WAY...
