Was will to pay a bit more for a good AM/FM radio with both good sensitivity and good selectivity (ability to separate channels close to each other). Decided on this one based on on-line reviews and wanted it in black so I had to wait over 6-weeks on back order -- but ABT had best price and it was worth the wait. Very intuitive controls - Didn't need to read the manual to set clock, presets, etc. I am very pleased with its performance and ability to lock in and hold the signal. Like listening to rock and PBS. I do have to use the antenna for best signal though so it doesn't go in and out when I walk around the room for some stations. Auxiliary input is nice idea but Bluetooth connectivity would allow pairing a phone or small audio device to take advantage of the radio's very good stereo sound. Love the RDS feature that displays station info for those that carry that added signal (reminds me of my car satellite radio.) I do worry a bit about carrying it around - wish it had a handle (and bluetooth) which is why it didn't get 5 stars. Other than that, it's a great radio.

Bass booms and treble muted; have to push volume to hear. Very disappointed there is no way to adjust tonal balance. Using this as a kitchen radio and find I'm leaving it turned off rather than suffer the flaws.

The stations come in good. It's very easy to set the preset buttons. The sound quality is very good for FM, a little excess bass for AM, but still good.

      Wanted a small radio with good reception, especially for AM stations. This radio has been great for it's AM and FM reception. The sound very good, for it's size. Lack of a handle hinders it's portability. Have had it for about 1 month.

            Using in a warehouse location where acquiring stations is difficult. The Sangean seems better than other radios I've tried, although FM reception is still hit-or-miss
