Pros Surprisingly good sound for the size, excellent tuner portion, easy to use. Nicer looking and sounding than the plastic Sony it replaced.
Cons Overpriced definitely. Should have had a 60 Hz. clock with battery backup. Single AA battery, with no low battery warning, runs the clock, lasts a year they say. Has no distinction between AM and PM, so alarm sounds twice a day if you leave the alarm on.
Pros Great sound, easy to use
Cons Clock is like a beacon and can't be adjusted
Summary Sound is wonderful.
Clock's light is way to bright in a dark room. It can keep you up at night, it's so bright.
Pros This radio sounds very very good for it's size, it's small but it puts out a nice big sound with an even response.
Cons The radio has an external power supply and I don't like that as much as an internal one..
Pros Small enough to add a DX MW Loop & has proper external antenna inputs. Annalog beats digital tune for long distance reception.
Cons Metal cabinet would act as a better RF(noise shield.
Pros Sound and reception of peerless Model One; capability of adding inexpensive satellite speaker.
Cons Alarm system, price.
Summary The radio gets a 10 hands down, and this model, unlike the Model One, allows you to add the satellite speaker (in effect, giving you the Model Two plus a $30 alarm clock).
The two deficiencies of the alarm system:
1. It rings twice a day (12-hour cycle)
2. You cannot wake up to the radio, then have a final wake-up buzzer (the alarms are not independent).
