Customer Reviews of SANGEAN WR-11 AM/FM Table Top Radio
Move over BOSE5/3/2013
We have been wanting a BOSE radio for our bedside table for a while but could never reconcile the cost with the amount of time we would actually be using it. So we've been settling for the tinny sounds of inferior digital radios and replacing them every few years. I stumbled on an article about Sangean describing it as a viable BOSE alternative at a fraction of the cost. We immediately bought this one from Rakuten a few weeks ago and have been delighted by every feature --,from the smart, simple, clean, sturdy design to the extraordinarily-full BOSE-like sound. I'm now planning to replace the stereo in my office with another of these gems. This is the best buy I've found in years. Want a BOSE radio and don't need the extras? Buy this one with confidence.
Excellent in every way possible9/22/2010
I have worked in the commercial two-way radio communications industry for over 15 years, hold an FCC commercial license, been a ham radio operator for over 22 years.. I have NEVER seen a basic AM/FM radio that performs as well as the Sangean WR-11. The equal runner up is the WR-1 (which the WR-11 replaced). This radio SOUNDS EXCELLENT and PERFORMS WELL on the receive end - hardly ever do you see both. The WR-11 is a basic receiver - analog dial which is backlit and easy to use at night. It has external AM and FM antenna connections. The receiver does NOT overload with strong signals. The selectivity between stations is superb on FM. The AM sensitivity is EXCELLENT. The darn thing just looks good. It out performs every digital radio I've ever seen. For the price, you just can't beat it. I recommend this radio for anyone who just needs to listen to the radio in simplicity without sacrificing quality. I own the WR-1, the WR-2 and the WR-11 which by the way are ALL good radios - I would have to buy the WR-11 again if I had the choice. This radio beats the socks off the Tivoli model One, the Crosley Solo, the Tangent Uno, the Boston Acoustics, whatever in the price range, the WR-11 is the best. Hats off to Sangean for this awesome product.
