If this radio would come in around the $100-150 mark, i would say it would probably be worth the cost, but for a nearly $300 radio, it is a FAILURE in both design and sound quality.

* FM antenna connector * Good build quality (poor sound quality) * Can play both USB and SD, but see cons below!

For a nearly $300 radio, the Sangean WR-3 is really disappointing... * Has only a miniscule 2GB SD card capacity!!! For a device dedicated to music, this is completely unacceptable. If you want to listen to high quality music and have allot of it,...

Sangean WR-3


I own three other Sangean radios, one is 25 years old and works as well as the day it was bought. Another is a pocket type radio that has been dropped and even kicked inadvertently across the floor and into the wall that aside from being chipped and...

Very high quality fit and finish does not stop there. This is so much more than a great radio. The tuner is top shelf, both AM & FM stations are received with clarity and definition. The speakers and amplifier have more than enough power to fill a good...

Limited functionality without use of remote. Display is always on and non adjustable as to brightness.

J & R does what it says it will do.


When I initially ordered this product it was on back order. J & R staff promised that it would be available within two weeks. Indeed, it was. I am particularly pleased with the quality of the tuner in this unit. I live in a remote, rural area. It...

Use this radio in office and love look and blue backlight. Glossy black finish and styling is impressive. Sound is very good on FM and great with CD. No complaints except needs complete battery backup for time, equalizer, etc. Most everything is...

Preset stations accessible from a remote makes this unit very nice but with all its capability why not have a plug for an external antenna.
