Summary: I got two of these babies. Everything works well, including the bluetooth. The only hicup was that you have to hit the power button to wake it up before you can [re]connect the bluetooth after a long absence. But on the plus side, the dimmer configuration is awesome, particularly being able to turn the display off entirely for the bedroom.
I REALLY LIKE this radio, despite HORRIBLE annoyances.

Summary: I REALLY LIKE this radio. The sound is richly detailed, transparent, natural in frequency response, and compact. The superior sound is especially apparent listening to acoustic piano and upright bass; and spoken voice is easy on the ears. Small, compact sound is what I want in a table radio--I'll turn on my stereo when I want big, room-filling sound--and this radio doesn't try to sound large by exaggerating low and high frequencies.
Quality radio, good sound, reception, and no issues so far!

Summary: Radio arrived in good condition, and was easy to open the box. I have had zero problems with it in the 24 hours I've owned it. Display has three brightness settings, and Setting 1 is great for the bedroom at night. Display will brighten to "max" for a few seconds if a button is pushed however, then return to current setting. Haven't used alarm yet, but apparently it "fades in" (music or buzzer) rather than blasting at full volume right off the bat. A good feature.
Summary: Not very loud for a data center option. It has neat features but not for the price. It should cost half as much. I would expect for $140 it would weigh as much as a BIC America bookshelf speaker.

Summary: I was looking for a sophisticated clock radio with stereo capable feature for a very long time, how ever could not find one. I just received the WR-22/ it exceeds expectations/ it is very sophisticated/ has an excellent quality of sound and relatively easy to operate The wood cabinet even adds to the look of the system, making it like a nice added piece of furniture in the room.
Summary: Very nice small radio with all the "state of art" bells and whistles. However one of the main reasons I bought this radio was the ability to listen to radio with headset at night. The location of the headphone jack is in the back and not convenient to plug and unplug to activate main speaker. Would be nice if could have a switch to leave headphone plugged in and alternate between headphone/speaker.
Radio works great. Picks up all the local stations no problem ...

Summary: Radio works great. Picks up all the local stations no problem both AM & FM. The only thing I couldn't handle was the brightness of the display at night. The dimmer is either too bright or I can't see it at night. I solved this problem by cutting up a piece of plastic window cover used in homes to keep out the bright light and covered the display. They have different colors (I used dark gray) All other features of the radio work well. It looks good and sounds good.
Summary: Got this over the weekend. Very impressed with the heft and build quality. Sound is clean and deep with nice bass punch. Display is clear and easy to read across the room. Bluetooth works phenomenally and sounds fantastic. intuitive and easy to setup. Perfect for listening to music while making meals in the kitchen. Exactly what I hoped it would be. Would highly recommend if you are looking for a quality table radio. Don't overpay for Bose nonsense.
Summary: This is a nice radio. The sound is good. The feature set is very good. But it is extremely difficult to program, and after a year with it I still need to refer to the manual to do much of anything. And no, I am not a technological idiot. Today's problem: the radio insists that November 2, 2014 is a Wednesday. I can change the year and the date. I cannot change the day. I returned the first unit I received because of these problems, and this one is no better.
