The dimmer is a rheostat that is variable from very bright to very dim. The led screen is gorgeous. The brightness of the display is adjustable.
This new clock has changeable batteries. This product while stil trying to cram too many features is at least easy to use.
Digital clock radio with dual alarms is great and one of the best i’ve found. Two alarm settings that can be adjusted for mon-fri, mon-sun, or sat-sunday. Easy to program the time for both the clock and the dual alarms.
Radio starts soft and increases in loudness to wake gently. The alarm starts out quiet and gradually builds up in volume, so no startling. The snooze can be adjusted in 10-minute increments.
No the speaker isn't quite as good, but i don't care. Digital tuning made it so easy to find my favorite station. My only complain is that this is digital radio and as such tuning with the knob as the good old days doesn't work.
The antenna system is terrible. Tried to use batteries instead of wall charger but still is not working.

The instruction manual is pretty straight forward, and i found it easy to set up. Their menus were simple and easily adapted to.
It blows away my old clock radio. This is now my second sangean radio, i also own the hdr-18 table am-fm hd radio. Very pleased with this radio.
The rcr-22 is wrong by one hour for about half the year. Even when i turn off daylight saving time, the clock insists on changing the time every dst. My casio 'g-shock' wristwatch gets a time signal almost every night, but this couldn't get any clock ... Read More
Trying to sleep with this thing on the bedside table is like having someone shining a flashlight in your eyes. There's a dimmer knob on the bottom of the unit that the manual doesn't even mention, but it doesn't do anything but dim the glowing red ala... Read More
