    Radios are largely replaced by multi tasking devices in todays market, sadly, now there are fewer radio manufacturers and less new development. PLL (phase lock loop) circuitry now comes in a chip, is cheap, and used by virtually all newer radios. Ferrite is ceramic imbedded with iron oxide developed in Japan during the 30's. I won't tolerate interference or weak signals and do not listen to other language stations. In the San Francisco bay area this radio gives at least 6 (AM)and 6 (FM)stations meeting my requirements. These come in very clear and powerful. On more distant reception, I find this radio does not live up to claimed performance.

    Poor reception

    Poor reception and lots of static. My $15 radio I replaced was far better.
    Bass is too strong, sounds are distorted because of lack of Treble.

          Comments about Sangean FM Stereo RDS / AM Portable Receiver:

          I bought this radio to use at work. The FM stations are so close together here my old radio would drift off station and start picking up noise from an adjacent station. This radio has none of those problems. For most of the stations in the area I don't even have to put up the antenna.
          For FM stations the tone is not bad, if I listen to AM stations they generally sound flat and don't have much in the way of high pitched sounds, but that is not a problem on the FM stations for either music or talk/sports.
