Sangean WR-11 Wooden Radio
Posted on January 9, 2009
Just received my Christmas present to myself– a Sangean WR-11. It’s similar in concept to the Tivoli Model One. This unit has great sound; not quite as boomy as the the Tivoli, which might be good if you like to listen to NPR. Also, the sensitivity on AM is immeasurably better! From the low end to the top of the x band, it picked up weaker stations with ease. I am surprised at how good it is.
I haven’t fully explored the FM capabilities yet. I suspect it will be relatively ho-hum in terms of sensitivity and selectivity– probably not as good as the Tivoli. Still, it probably will be adequate for most listeners.
I’ll add some more details later.
