Convenient Radio Functions

PLL synthesized tuning provides exact, fade-free FM reception, while a 200mm Ferrite AM antenna bar allows exceptionally strong AM reception. Ten Memory Presets for 5 AM or 5 FM station selection are available and easily visible in the large LCD display. Fill your presets with Auto Seek, which finds your active stations automatically.

Connect Your Portable Digital Player

A 3.5mm Aux-in socket allows you to connect your iPod, smartphone, or other portable digital music player using a male-to-male 3.5mm stereo cable.

Humane Wake System

The PR-D5 WH features a sleep timer with a radio alarm to turn on your favorite station at a predetermined time. There's also a Humane Wake System (HWS) buzzer alarm, which wakes you up gradually with an incrementally increasing alarm instead of a harsh, instant noise.

    The sound is great and the reception is very good.
    I get FM reception for most of the stations that I listen to without extending the antenna and the sound is great.
    I bought it to listen to those radio stations that are hard to get like NPR and it works great.

    Color Name: White Verified Purchase
    Half the price of my Tivoli Songbook, the PR-D5 has superior AM/FM reception, dual stereo speakers, and easy-to-use ergonomics, making it even better than the Sangean single-speaker Sonido. As a bedside radio, it has even better FM reception than my Sangean WR-2 but it lacks the WR-2's depth and heaviness, qualities I like in a bedside radio. For a lighter, portable radio with no remote, go for the PR-D5. If you want more luxury in your radio (remote, numerical volume indicator, heavier feel) and don't mind a slight compromise in FM reception, you might want to check out the Sangean WR-2, which is compatible with an upgraded FM antenna attachment.

    One question many will have is why the PR-D5 goes for about 15 dollars less than the Sonido. The answer most likely is that the 2.5-inch stereo speakers on the PR-D5 don't have the richness nor the depth of the Sonido's 3-inch monoaural speaker.

    Update: Ironically, I don't like listening to talk radio on dual speakers. This is not a technological issue, but psychological. The voices don't seem as focused as they do on the Sangean WR-2's monoaural speaker. So if you're a heavy AM talk radio listener, you might want to opt for the WR-2.

    Second Update: To really test the FM on the PR-D5, I tried to pull in the weak college station 88.9. The PR-D5 pulled in the station with clarity, even better than my Eton S350. The verdict: My PR-D5 is my best performing AM/FM radio, even better than the Eton/Grundig S350. That says quite a lot. Even more astounding, the PR-D5 is 15 dollars cheaper.

    Third Update: I brought my PR-D5 to my work office and like all the digital radios I've tried it suffered compromised reception. I succeeded more with my Tivoli Model Three (same as the Model One with the additional clock).

    Color Name: White
    The PR-D5 upgrades Sangean's well-reviewed Sonido radio with a second speaker, the 200mm internal AM antenna from their CCRadio, a well designed side-mounted tuning knob, and a few other touches.

    The iPod-generation look of the new radio doesn't appeal to me, but that's a matter of taste, so you can judge that one for yourself. The pushbuttons unfortunately seem to be the same pressure-sensitive foil type used on the Sonido and CCradio, which tend to stand up poorly to prolonged use, but at least the addition of the new tuning knob means you'll use the pushbuttons less, so perhaps that's not a major issue.

    I find the dual speakers odd, but the audio is loud and clear, especially in FM stereo mode. Mono FM mode really cleans up the weaker signals. I have not found the dual speakers to be a problem on AM voice, as Jeff McMahon writes. The AUX input is a nice feature given how many MP3 players and other such gadgets people use now. The backlight goes on for a few seconds if you touch any non-analog control - very practical. There's no real handle, just a slender ridge along the top back of the radio for your fingertips to precariously claw at, so don't try picking this thing up with wet hands.

    What really distinguishes this unit, however, is it's performance as a receiver. This degree of FM sensitivity and selectivity would be outstanding on any portable, but at this price I suspect it may be a first. Really strong AM receivers are rarer still, despite all the hype that gets thrown around, but the PR-D5 is up there with the best of them. When I ordered it I hoped that it might at best match my aging CCRadio on AM reception, and have indeed found them too close to call - with the newer radio at half the price of the older.

    Color Name: Black Verified Purchase
    I bought this radio because
    1. This is from Sangean
    2. Digital Tuning with frequency display
    3. Stereo Speakers
    4. RDS Info Display
    5. Can be used as a mobile phone/laptop speakers
    6. Looks sophisticated and modern
    7. Alarm
    8. Black version available against the white one

    The overall built quality is excellent and has a metal body. You can feel
    the richness. It has an ergonomic tuning and volume knob both has a soft
    rubber feel. Nice to hold. The tuning jogs up/down .1MHz steps and can feel
    the click. Interesting feature is the frequency scan. You can push the
    tuning knob and it lands to the next audible station! This makes the frequency
    exactly to the .1MHz frequency. Then you can easily long press the memory button
    and store the station into the memory! Cool.

    One of the greatest features of this radio I liked is its Aux connection. ie. you can
    connect your mobile phone/mp3 player and Laptop using a 3.5mm male to male connector
    (need to buy separately). I bought an 8ft cord.
    I ordered it when I ordered the radio.

    It plays the MP3 songs from my mobile phone nicely. Another interesting thing I do is
    I put Internet radio on my Android phone and play it through the Aux speakers.
    This opens a huge world of Internet radio!

    The biggest drawback I would like to notify the Sangean company is that the Bass tone
    is hardwired into the circuitry. There is no Bass/Tone knob. At least the Sangean
    company can hard wire a bass+treble audio so that it's neither bassy nor trebly :)

    My Suggestions for Improvement to Sangean. (Hope they read these feedbacks)
    1. Add a Bass/Tone knob.
    2. Toggle switch to keep the display lights always on.
