Sangean PR-D7 FM/AM Compact Digital Tuning Portable Radio Receiver
The PR-D7 has everything you want in an ideal portable radio. Digital AM/FM tuning enhanced with a Phase Locked Loop (PLL) receiver to bolster and strengthen the signal of any frequency you tune in, so there's no slip and you'll have less static interference. Ten presets (five AM, five FM) let you store your favorite channels and there's also an alarm feature that lets you wake up to your chosen station or you can set it to the HWS (Humane Waking System) buzzer function.
HWS offers an alternative to those harsh, loud alarms that some of the other units have. Here, the buzzer starts to sound quietly, then gradually increases in volume for a more civilized and peaceful way to start the morning. If there's an alarm, then there must also be a snooze feature. The sleep function also lets you set a time for the radio shut itself off.
All of these sounds are heard through a single, 2.5 inch speaker which may be small but provides a full spectrum of sound with a satisfying balance between the highs and lows. The PR-D7 can be powered via rechargeable cell with a convenient level indicator alerting you when it's running low, or you can use standard disposable batteries.
