Great radio, but...

Eric F., Vanns
8 August 2012
  • Excerpt: I ordered my Sangean WR-5 radio from Vann’s through Amazon.com and have been using it for about 3 weeks now. Overall, I'm very happy. First, I like the looks of the unit, which Sangean markets as Classic, Mid-century design. I'm not sure what this means, exactly, as I don't think radios actually looked like this in the mid 20th century 1940s, 1950s, & 1960s, but I will say that the WR-5 looks modern, yet vaguely vintage at the same time.

Good Choice if you want FM/AM and Aux

Nathan H., Newegg
18 July 2011
  • Summary: In this $100 range you have so many choices for ipod docks and radios, but the WR-5 is one of the few that gives you AM/FM radio, and Aux input and Hi-Fi table top sound. If it weren't for my wife's iPod I probably would wave opted for the WR-2. I have a Cowon mp3 player (from New Egg too) and I use the Aux input and it sounds great. I would recommend this if you need a nice radio as much as you need and iPod dock.
  • Pros: Great sound for the money, nice warm bass and crisp tones from radio, iPod, and Aux. The sound controls, including the the 3D make a difference and let you adjus to your taste or the particular music. The sound really fills the room and it sounds great whether you are facing the radio or not.
  • Cons: The dials to control the volume and tuning/iPod scroll are touchy and will jump around if you try to turn them too quickly or with two fingers at the same time. The controls on top and the iPod dock are made of a dull plastic that cheapens the look a bit.

DOA

Anonymous, Newegg
10 May 2011
  • Pros: No idea... yet.
  • Cons: The WR-5 arrived today, and I was looking forward to putting it to use. However, the audio, and iPod controls were non-existent. Imagine that... a new audio device and no sound what-so-ever from any source (am, fm, iPod). Ridiculous. I called Sangean, and they confirmed it was a bad radio that slipped past thier QA/QC. Newegg is mailing out a replacement as I type this. Hopefully the second unit will work. If not, this will be the first and last Sangean product I purc...

Much Better Than I Had Expected

R. S., Newegg
15 April 2011
  • Summary: I really like the Radio Data System (FM only tho) Station ID, Song info and what ever else the station wants to program the RDS to show on your display. I dropped my iPhone in the dock, it sort of works with my iPhone. It fully works with my gen 6 "iPod Classic" Its funny I've not been this happy with a electronic device in a long time. The clock even show the month, date, and day (Apr 15 Fir) and the year in another setting.
  • Pros: This is the first Sangean product I've ever owned. I had been wanting a iPod dock radio for a wile. But to be honest most of the don't look all that nice. And the few I've listen to at WalMart, Target, Best Buy, and other places sound like a cheap tinny radio. And the price they charge for them is high-way robbery.
  • Cons: Not enough radio presets. (Not a biggie tho)

Sangean WR 5 als Küchenradio

Marcus, Amazon
29 December 2013
  • Summary: Wie der Titelname schon vermuten lässt, ist der Aufstellungsort für das Radio die häusliche Küche. Ziel des Kaufes war es, eine schnelle Lösung zu finden, um morges und abends ein wenig Radio zu hören, und dies mit einer IPhone-Doc zu verbinden. Für höherwertigen, aber eben nicht so schnell aktivierbaren (Radio-)Klang verfügt die Küche noch über Mivoc-Boxen, die Teil eines 7.1-Systems sind und aus dem Wohnzimmer angesteuert werden.

endlich, es ist vollbracht!

Christine Schmien "Klarsteller", Amazon
17 February 2013
  • Summary: Nach ewigem suchen und testen habe ich nun den (fast) perfekten Radiowecker fuer 250€ gefunden. Ja fast perfekt, bis auf den Drehwaehler, der springt dank dummen programmieren. Der iPod Nano 6Generation passt perfekt und muss unbedingt dazu erworben werden, da alle notwendigen funktionen von dem kommen (z.bsp shuffle und überblenden) deshalb auch 250€ notwendig.

Gutes Gesamtpaket

Edelweiss, Amazon
28 December 2012
  • Summary: Sehr wertige Verarbeitung, guter Stereoklang, Line-out Ausgang für Anschluss eines Verstärkers vorhanden. Leider Display-Beleuchtung trotz Stufen-Regelung bei Dunkelheit zu stark (ist aber ganz abschaltbar!) Anschlussmöglichkeit iPhone würde zwar heutzutage auch über Bluetooth gehen, aber dafür ist Ladung möglich. Weckfunktionen völlig ausreichend. Insgesamt gutes Gesamtpaket mit schönem Design!

Super! Geniales Gerät!

Neuge, Amazon
22 June 2012
  • Summary: Lange habe ich nach einem Radiowecker gesucht, der so gut zu meinen Anforderungen passt: - Toller Klang v.a. bei moderaten Lautstärken (beim Einschlafen höre ich selten laute Musik) ohne, dass nerviges Hintergrundrauschen zu vernehmen ist - Displayhelligkeit in 7 Stufen einstellbar bis ganz aus - iPod Dock mit guter Bedienung - einfach einzustellende Weckzeiten mit Auswahl der Weckquelle (Radio, iPod) mit Vorauswahl des Senders und der Wecklautstärke - tolle Optik -...
