Product Description

The PR-D7 is a true ultra-compact portable AM/FM Digital radio being ultra- compact in size (a mere 8" long and stands 4 ½" tall and weighs 1.3 lbs). All controls are conveniently located and you can see the frequency and time on the display. Tone is well balanced and excellent for both talk and music. The PR-D7 has excellent sensitivity and selectivity and will surprise you at its ability to pull in those distant stations. Five presets are available on each band and the auto seek will automatically seek the active stations across the entire band rather than to the next frequency. The radio can be set to automatically turn off after 120, 90, 60, 45, 30, or 15 minutes, so you can fall asleep to the sound of music, talk, or news. Sleep alarm allows you to wake up to music or beeper with Humane Wake-up System. You can power it with the included AC Adapter, or six "AA" size batteries (not included). In addition the PRD-7 can be powered with six rechargeable AA batteries which you can charge right in the radio. Headphone jack turns off speaker when headphones are used

The radio can be set to automatically turn off after 120, 90, 60, 45, 30, or 15 minutes, so you can fall asleep to the sound of music, talk, or news. Sleep alarm allows you to wake up to music or beeper with Humane Wake Up System--which gradually ramps up the alarm volume to wake you, instead of delivering an abrasive jolt.

Five presets are available on each band and the auto seek will automatically find the active stations across the entire band rather than to the next frequency. It can be powered by the included AC adapter, or by six AA batteries (not included). Additionally, if you use rechargeable AA batteries, they'll be charged right in the radio when it's powered by the AC adapter. It also features a headphone jack, which automatically turns off the speaker when headphones are used.

I recently read analysis of the Sangean PR-D5 vs. the Sangean PR-D7 radios. The reviews missed the point: These two Sangean radios target different market niches and needs. The PR-D5 is essentially a table radio while the PR-D7 targets folks that need a radio for domestic travel. I'm sure the engineers at Sangean see it this way. Why not buy both radios?

The Sangean PR-D7 has a clean crisp sound with very low noise floor on AM and FM bands, a great improvement over Sangean radios of similar size such as the ATS-505 or the ATS-909. BTW, I've tuned in all the major stations in the greater Phoenix area without a problem including the hard to catch 89.5, a classical station.

I have been very surprised at the overall performance of the PR-D7 radio and listen to this radio on a daily basis. The Sangean PR-D7 ($59# does 90 percent of what the Trivoli Songbook does at 25 percent of the Songbook's $200 price tag.

Still, the PR-D7 could use a multi-voltage AC adapter and a lock switch to be a complete global travel radio #like the Sangean ATS-606). Also, when traveling, cloth pouch would be a really nice touch. And while I'm making my wish list, the PR-D7 in a red or yellow case would be neat and easy to spot in a hotel room so you don't leave it behind.

One of the things I like about this radio are the controls, easy to learn and use, plus you can see the frequency and time on the display.

Update September 2008: I just recently purchased Sanyo's Eneloop AA rechargeable batteries for my PR-D7 giving me greater flexibility when enjoying this wonderful portable radio. I highly recommend Sanyo's Eneloop batteries.

Last week, from my greater Phoenix location, I picked KNX 1070 Los Angeles about 10PM in the evening.

I was trying to replace my Sony ICF-M410 which is about the same size. I was extremely disappointed I could not find it as they discontinued this model and I was so happy with that radio. In searching for reviews of AM/FM small portable radios, I came upon this one. Not too many reviews (7) but I bought it anyway because I wanted a radio that ran on batteries. I could not be happier with this radio!! Superior in sound and reception to the Sony I had and a BIG PLUS is that you can use rechargable batteries (I have been using the eneloop) and charge them in the radio! Doesn't get any better than that and I LOVE having the option of using the electrical adapter (which comes with it) or use it with the batteries only. There is no weather band or tv band on this like the Sony, but I really mostly use the radio for AM reception and talk radio which is excellent (FM is also). I highly recommend this radio for anyone looking for a truly portable radio with great sound, reception and a compact size. I also love the volume knob and the display which has a lighted clock along with the channel. Oh, I forgot about the sleep timer too that I love. Hope this helps.

I use a portable radio a lot, and I hate throwing away exhausted AA alkaline batteries. But most radios perform poorly on NiMH rechargeables because of the lower voltage and because old-style NiMH batteries self-discharge in a few days or a couple of weeks to the point that they need recharging again. This radio can use NiMH batteries with no loss of performance due to lower voltage. I recommend Sanyo Eneloops because they self-discharge much more slowly than ordinary NiMH batteries.

One word of caution though. You can recharge the batteries using the provided plug-in adapter, but because the recharge will be in series the batteries will not be recharged individually. This works OK for one or two recharges, but then the batteries tend to get unbalanced -- some will be higher voltage than others -- and performance will suffer. You will also observe a loss of energy capacity (the need for recharge will become increasingly more frequent). If you recharge the NiMH batteries in a good charger like a Maha or a La Cross, however, the cells will be charged individually and there will be no observed loss of capacity.

~BOTTOM LINE~
Pros:
1- All the top FM stations in my area come in lound and clear... Crystal clear. No static at all after having locked on an FM station.
2- The single speaker is good enough. Nice and rich tone.
3- Digital tuner lights up when you push any button so you can see the station and the time clearly.
4- If you load it with rechargable batteries, this radio will recharge them. (the Sanyo eneloop rechargables are excellent) Be careful to unplug the adapter when the red light indicates a full charge or else the circuts overheat and the batteries feel hot to the touch. I had that happen to me once. Thought I fried it but after taking the batteries out and allowing it to cool off for 30 minutes it was working fine again.
5- Functions as a alarm clock.
6- AM is also very good. Nice and clear.
7- AC adapter is included.
8- Last but not least, it looks damn good on your table.

Cons:
1) Only 5 presets for each band. I wish it had 10.

~Hope I was helpful.
