    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.

    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 Stereo White Portable Receiver:

    I only use it for night listening, with headphones, as I drop off to sleep. Has low level light on its face that is just right and shuts off quickly after you change stations. Easy to use 'seek' function allows you to scan all stations, but you can also use your 5 presets on each of 3 bands. For me, the best feature is the very high quality, static-free, hum-free sound and dead-on tuning.

                Comments about Sangean Stereo White Portable Receiver:

                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.

                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.
