Delightful

 

Great little radio with good audio for the size of the speaker. If you want to make the house vibrate you will have to use the audio out though. It is really very nice to have my music right there without having to find my mp3 player and connect it.

Product Specifications

The compact portable PR-D8 FM/Stereo/AM Receiver with MP3 and MP3 Recorder/WMA Player is ideal for small spaces such as the office, workshop, kitchen, or bedside table. Its advantages over similar devices include its versatility, quality, styling & performance definitely exceeds the competition. Its functions are so simple and user friendly and its controls are so intuitive. You can have your favorite AM or FM program that you had to miss because you were not available or it came on at a time you could not be home. Well, the PR-D8 solves your problems. Set the timer for the time your program goes on the air and it will record your program on the SD card. In addition, this versatile AM/FM Receiver/Recorder will charge your rechargeable batteries while in the radio. The Sangean PR-D8 is an AM/FM Stereo Portable Receiver with built-in SD based MP3 recorder and MP3/WMA Playback. It also offers 5 AM and 5 FM Presets, and auto seek and auto scan. A full featured alarm clock will wake you to radio, alarm, buzz or SD Card based content. You'll appreciate the large adjustable amber Dot-Matrix LCD screen. It also features two separate Dot-Matrix LCD screen for MP3 functions including disk name, folder name, track name, and 3 segment battery level indicator. The MP3 Recorder with auto gain control has up to 32GB HCSD capability. Time recording from FM/AM/Aux In or internal microphone. The MP3 features separate folder creation capability, random play and browsing, and 3 separate bit rate recording levels. Playback from MP3 or WMA formats. Although the sound from its 3W rectangular speaker, full-range, magnetically-shielded speaker is never going to compete with your home stereo system, or with more expensive and larger stereo radios, it delivers crisp clarity sound and range. Plenty of small speaker systems rattle and buzz as soon as you turn the volume more than halfway up. Sangean cranked this little portable receiver to room-filling volumes without the slightest hint of a buzz and maintain a constant balance of high and low dynamic range.
