Man I’m pleased I bought that Sangean receiver. I’ve had it for two weeks and it lifts my spirits just looking at it. It is beautiful. The reception, clarity and volume are perfect. Mind you for a $190, 22cm by 14cm AM/FM receiver (only) with a 7cm speaker I expected some degree of satisfaction.
The quality of the case, the generosity of the features such as the two alarm choices, five preset station options, the perfectly delineated clock section within the rectangular digital display, have bought and brought me affection. I’ve had the company of a bedside radio since I was six, 68 years ago. I’ve had a Sangean Digitor, made for Dick Smith I believe, for at least 14 years as a bedside radio that turns on every morning at 6.59. (display light still works).
The PR-D4 replaces a $50 Panasonic with a 10cm speaker that did an excellent job for the bathroom, gardening, or holidaying but being analogue needed considered tuning. I would like those hand wringers who say we have become dupes of consumerism to have a PR-D4 beside their beds for two weeks then have the other for two weeks.
