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.
