The sangean has two separate alarm settings with either a gentle awaking setting or a standard buzzer setting. I use one for weekdays, and the other for weekends (it has additional modes). The weekday only alarm setting is a nice option. I love the hu... Read More
It has no battery back-up, but it has a capacitor to store power if/when the electricity goes out. There are two brightness one is 100% full, and one is adjustable from 0% to 100% with a dial on the bottom. The brightness is adjustable for sleeping.
This radio uses the atomic clock to keep it set to the correct time. It has two wire antennas, one for reception and one for the atomic clock time setting feature. Rbds ct is not on every rds station so you have to listen to a radio station for a few ... Read More
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
Control * are super easy to use, never had to crack open the manuel. Easy to configure (including setting time & brightness) 2 alarms are pluses. Adjustable brightness and features.
The radio has great sound for a little radio. And the reception is good. It has 6 different alarms to choose from - i am using piano music right now but will try tweeting birds next. Sound quality is good for such a tiny speaker.
Every couple weeks i have to reset the time on this clock because it keeps gaining minutes. It reset totally when i clicked timeset/sleep split second. The digital display is already burned out. Takes 6 hours to charge fully.
Even with antennae, very very poor reception. Not even possible to manually tune to a particular station. Reception for many stations is just static no sound or music.
Flimsy and will break if you sneeze on it. Turning the brightness down at night is difficult -- a tiny dial on the back needs to be turned down. Unless you like to leave the clock dimmer on bright, this device is impossible to see at night without sit... Read More
