The Best of the Smallest!
Feb 20, 2003
Review by johnclif
Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros:Compact, plenty of preset memories, digital tuning, good ergonomics, good sound
Cons:earbuds not super-comfortable, audio subject to distortion at high volume
The Bottom Line: If you listen to music or talk radio at moderate volumes, and wear clothing with pockets, then this radio is just about ideal for your needs.
After examining nearly all of the small AM/FM receivers, I decided to pick up the Radio Shack version (#12-804) of this radio.
Recommend this product?
Very small, good to excellent sound (the radio is challenged on high dynamic music such as hard rock due to insufficient amplification power), good receiver sensitivity and selectivity and decent battery life with Ni-Cads.
The factory-supplied ear buds have good sound reproduction but aren't the most comfortable.
The RS variant doesn't come with a carrying case and there is no way to secure the radio to a belt... but it does fit into a pocket. A real audiophile might want to try one of the small pocket amps with this radio to get the best sound.
The RS variant retails at $39.95, and is often on sale for $29.95... a true bargain.
My only wishes for improvements would be for Sangean to add a little more amplification (to clean up the sound on rock at higher volumes) and to add some sort of belt clip to the radio itself.
Summary: If you listen to music or talk radio at moderate volumes, and wear clothing with pockets, then this radio is just about ideal for your needs.
