From the Manufacturer

Sangean RCR-2
Featuring a large, easy-to-read LCD display

Sangean RCR-2
Wake up gradually with the HWS buzzer alarm

The popular Sangean RCR-2 clock radio combines the best alarm clock functions with convenient footprint design and Sangean radio technology. The RCR-2 is a radio-controlled clock available for DCF/WWVB/MSF/JJY functions. Its PLL-synthesized FM tuning makes it an ideal choice for pleasant radio listening or alarm notifications by the bedside.

RCR-2 FM / AM PLL Synthesized Tuning Clock Radio
  • 14 Memory Preset Stations (7 FM, 7 AM)
  • Radio Controlled Clock Available for DCF / WWVB / MSF / JJY
  • Weekday Selection and Time Zone Selector Switch
  • Easy to Read LCD Display
  • HWS (Humane Wake System) Buzzer
  • Adjustable Alarm Buzzer Level
  • Snooze Function and Adjustable Nap Timer

The large illuminated LCD screen gives you all the vital information such as time, date, day of the week, sleep, wake times, and naptime and radio information. Separate adjustable nap and sleep timers with a Humane Wake System (HWS) make sure you get the wake-up message. The alarm system's weekday selector allows you to select individual days for alarm activation. The clock radio is silver with a modern and sleek footprint, and will offer years of dependable operation.

LCD Display

An easy-to-read LCD display shows you station and time as well as other information. The segment-style LCD screen measures 3.11" x 1.46", and is backlit to be easy to see even across the room.

Alarm with Humane Wake System

The RCR-2 features an alarm with the option of setting individual days for alarms to sound. The radio alarm turns 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. Other alarm functions include a Snooze function and adjustable nap and sleep timers.

Convenient Radio Functions

PLL synthesized tuning provides exact, fade-free reception. 14 memory presets for 7 AM or 7 FM station selection are available and easily visible in the large LCD display.

Unfortunately I sent it back and will try another.
Erie PA
By first glance, the buttons are not labeled well and operations such as setting the alarm are not very intuitive.
L. Parker
Overall this clock radio is very functional and easy to use.

I spent a lot of time trying to find the perfect alarm clock for my bedroom and, as you can tell, I am still looking. The Sangean RCR-2 certainly has some attractive features like the atomic clock, which took a few hours to set itself, and the nice styling but it fails in so many areas as an alarm clock. First, and most importantly, the display is unreadable. It is very busy with lots of symbols and numbers but using very thin LCD numerals for the time and the off axis viewing angle is very small; you must basically face it head on. Worst of all, however, is the blindingly bright orange backlight with makes is impossible for night adjusted eyes to read the display if you want to check the time in the middle of the night. It is so bright as to cast shadows throughout the room. I keep it across the room but I can't imagine trying to sleep with this minor sun positioned on the nightstand. Sure, you can turn off the backlight but then the clock is invisible at night. Maybe LEDs are not cool but they make a lot more sense for an alarm clock. Also, it takes at least four button presses to turn on the alarm as opposed to one on my old alarm.

I own several radios and clock radios, including CCrane's CCRadio (made by Sangean) and the GE SuperRadio. Some of the negatives given in reviews above have an element of truth, but are overblown, in my view.

Compared to the CCRadio (the several year old one, I don't have the more recent CCRadio Plus):

* The RCR-2 is noticeably smaller. It is somewhat narrower, and half the height. It is twice as deep. It feels solid, heavy, and polished.

* The extra buttons make it quite a bit easier to use. Sangean is still no Apple or Timex when it comes to making intuitive interfaces, so the interface will still confuse some. And while Sangean has improved on their translation of the instruction booklet, it still leaves much unsaid. But the function of each button is clearer and simpler, with less strange overloading of uses.

* The CCRadio used any button for Snooze, so I could not switch stations, or just turn the radio OFF in the morning, without pushing the ON/OFF button 3 times, to get it out of snooze mode, and just plain OFF. The RCR-2 only uses the one up/down big tuning button for snooze, so other buttons continue to function for their primary purpose in the morning. This is good.

* The front third of the RCR-2 is polished metal, with a closely fit clear face plate over the front. The buttons are a very solid feeling, smooth polished round metal nubs with strong spring loading. This is good for most of the buttons, though the snooze (big up/down bar) button requires more focused pressure than I like first thing in the morning.

* The CCRadio buttons are flimsier feeling plastic, and have some annoying delays -- you have to hold them a major fraction of a second to take affect (debounce circuitry, I guess).

I used to have an Emerson CKS2237 Dual Alarm Clock Radio (Silver) (it was a "smartset" that was supposed to be smart enough to "set itself"). After the new DST rules came into effect, the Emerson lost its smart and no longer set itself properly (it was not atomic as many had thought it was). I then found and purchased the Sangean RCR-2. The clock itself was excellent with the one exception that it was nearly impossible to read the clock at night (and also during the day at certain angles). I opted to return the clock and wait for the Sangean RCR-22 to come out.

Sangean RCR-22 AM/FM Atomic Clock Radio

I waited for about 3 months for the RCR-22 to come out. It was really worth the wait. The RCR-22 is an excellent upgrade over the RCR-2. In addition to the features of the RCR-2, below are some of the upgrades that the RCR-22 offers over the RCR-2:

The display screen for the RCR-22 has a dark blue background with white text. It makes for a very easy read from a wide variety of angles (unlike the RCR-2).

The display screen for the RCR-22 has an adjustable display knob to make the background screen lighter or darker (the RCR-2 was lacking this).

The RCR-22 has a wider display screen than the RCR-2 (this keeps the clutter down when trying to read from a distance and at night).

The RCR-22 has aux input so that you can connect your mp3 or CD player.

My first impression was one of delight, because the RCR-2's controls, programming flexibility, packaging, and sound quality are very well done. But I was ultimately disappointed and had to return the unit because Sangean did not follow through in two important areas: the display and power back-up.
The LCD display is only viewable from a limited angle. We placed the unit on a low headboard about 6" above the pillows, and the digits became invisible. The left-to-right viewing angle is also very limited. The RCR-2 is easily viewable only if you place it on a nightstand lower than your pillow and view it straight ahead within arm's reach.
The LCD backlighting is weak and uneven. Instead of a uniform electro-luminescent light source (e.g. Indiglo), there is a single bulb on one side. Bright on one side and dim on the other, it looks a lot like a cheap digital watch from many years ago. Not a good first impression in a guest bedroom.
The second problem is the limited and/or undocumented power failure backup. The RCR-2 does not use a battery, but does have some internal power storage since I could unplug it for several minutes without losing the time. But the instructions don't say how long an outage the RCR-2 can handle. The radio update can take several hours, so don't depend on the unit re-syncing before wake-up time. Also, there is no mention in the instructions as to whether the alarm times are preserved, even if the clock does re-sync by morning.
Without assurance that the clock would wake me after a power outage of 30 minutes or more (which do occur where I live) I elected to return the RCR-2. If power outages are less of an issue in your area, you can solve many of the display problems by moving up to the Sangean RCR-1, which adds an analog clock face.
