Reviews around product (4.67 of 5)

  • I bought this radio to replace a tivolo radio (which is a fantastic product in its own right) and have not been disappointed at all.
  • I would recommend this product if you are looking for a good quality portable radio, clock, alarm and more.
  • This is the third Sangean radio that I have purchased and it is an excellent product line.
  • I have considered retuning it several times because its alarm and a/c are losers; keeping it because the digital radio tunes in one local station (WDNA 88.9 FM jazz) that usually is lost because of crowded, dirty bandwidth.
  • The Sangean is not cheap, but it seems a well made product

Reviews around price (4.17 of 5)

  • Combined with its modest price this was definitely a good buy.
  • All things considered, this feels like a $15 radio, so Amazon’s actual price of $43 seems pretty steep for what you get.
  • I have considered retuning it several times because its alarm and a/c are losers; keeping it because the digital radio tunes in one local station (WDNA 88.9 FM jazz) that usually is lost because of crowded, dirty bandwidth.
  • Station pre-sets and digital display make this well worth the price
  • Summarizing - A good small radio well worth its modest price ($42 on sale for me)

Reviews around control (3.99 of 5)

  • Very nice product, wish all electronics took a trip to the past, easy controls.
  • We like the Sangean RCR-22 atomic clock radio we bought from Amazon a while ago, despite its somewhat funky controls
  • The controls are easy to use and instructions easy to understand.
  • There is a lockout switch on the back that disables the front controls.
  • Good reception, clear, strong signal and easy controls.

Reviews around station (3.25 of 5)

  • Good sound, has the ability to preset your favorite stations and picks up stations easily.
  • Too bad most radio stations have too many commercials, and real dumb talk show host.
  • That said, the sound is great on some stations, and just cross your finger that your favorite station is one which comes in clearly.
  • It locks onto every station I’ve tried on both AM and FM even weak stations in the crowded bands of the SF Bay Area
  • I wanted a radio that would pick up weaker talk radio stations in my area.

Reviews around background noise (1.80 of 5)

  • If I'm outdoors and want to listen to music I have to deal with a lot of background noise.
  • Not a C Crane model at double the price, but adequate
  • I can use the radio during the day when the volume can be louder than the background noise.
  • I have considered retuning it several times because its alarm and a/c are losers; keeping it because the digital radio tunes in one local station (WDNA 88.9 FM jazz) that usually is lost because of crowded, dirty bandwidth.
  • I did not like the low constant background noise like static
