Excerpt: I just wanted a good sounding radio to listen to the blues played every sunday on our local station (that doesnt have a great signal). This radio has great reception and great sound. I dont like the sound too bassy nor too tinny... the balance is perfect, soft or loud.I am really happy with this purchase.
Pros: Accurate Controls, Clear Signal, Compact, Easy To Set Up, Good Sound
Summary: I purchased this because I work in a metal building in a remote area and could not receive many FM radio stations (no wifi, either) during working hours. This radio (with a dipole antenna) manages to bring in some new stations with a crisp clear sound. The sound quality is very rich - a little bassy but crisp and clear. Simple, elegant, and easy to use. I'm very impressed and will be purchasing more Sangean products in the future.
An easy-to-use quality radio, perfect for seniors to use

Summary: I bought this retro-styled radio for my old-school father (99 years old) who can't handle the complexities of digital controls and displays. Three simple knobs, that's all! Although I bought external antennae (FM and AM), the radio has very good reception without using them. And this is within a concrete frame high rise building.
Sounds really nice for a small plain-looking radio

Summary: Bought this to replace an old boombox at my workplace. We subscribe to satellite radio, and this radio re-broadcasts the signal very well, even though it is basically surrounded by various electronics. Sounds really nice for a small plain-looking radio! All the co-workers like it!
