Sangean RCR-5 Digital Clock Radio with Added Features
Sangean has established a reputation for manufacturing the highest quality standards and performance radios for 40 years. The latest RCR-5 AM/FM clock radio is as attractive as it is unique. It offers features and performance generally found in the most expensive clock radios, all in a small, affordable package.
- Easy-to-read LCD with adjustable backlight
- 10 Memory Preset Stations (5 FM, 5 AM)
- Weekday / Weekend / Daily / Once Timer Selection
- Digital Tuning
- Dual Alarm Timer
- HWS (Humane Wake System) Radio/buzzer
- Snooze Timer
- Adjustable Nap Timer
- Adjustable Sleep Timer
Small Size, Big Sound
The RCR-5 is a small-size radio with a big sound and excellent AM/FM reception. Sangean's digital tuner technology reduces drift on AM stations and is able to lock in weak FM stations, giving you the maximum station choice for your area, no matter where you are. The RCR-5 is a very well designed clock radio with great sound for music and talk radio.
The RCR-5 has 10 presets for all your favorite stations, and has an easy-to-read adjustable backlit LCD display. The display is of a soft, warm color, most conducive to a good sleeping environment—it's easy to read but won't keep you awake with glare when sitting on your bedside table.
Dual Alarms and HWS System
The RCR-5 features dual alarm timers for both "waking up to radio" and/or "waking up to the HWS buzzer" (Humane Wake Up System) at different times for weekdays, weekends, daily, or just once. The Humane Wake System wakes you by gradually increasing the volume of the alarm to a comfortable level, so you don't get startled awake by a loud alarm. The RCR-5 has Sleep, Nap, and Snooze timers to let you get the perfect amount of rest.
A 3.5 mm Aux input allows listening to your favorite CD, smartphone, or most standard audio devices through the radio. The RCR-5 is the perfect bedside alarm clock radio.
Top Customer Reviews
Here is where the RCR-5 truly shines, as it incorporates a backlit LCD with adjustable intensity: one may adjust the backlight to suit your needs, so you have a perfectly legible, yet not too bright display (at night) which can never be "washed out", even in direct sunlight. The display even has a clever feature whereby it will illuminate to full intensity when any of the buttons are pressed, after which it returns to the user's preset intensity after ten seconds. As you can see from the product photos, the display is of a soft, warm color, most conducive to a good sleeping environment; other clock radios using bright blue or green illumination, IMHO, should be avoided if you want to get any sleep.
Very useful for listening to my podcasts at night; when an external source is attached, the Band button will cycle through AM/FM/AU; when none is attached, only AM/FM are available, thereby eliminating "clutter" for those who do not wish to enable this feature. (Note: I'm old-school, and prefer using this method over a "Dockable" iPod solution, as I prefer to completely run my iPod's battery source to zero before recharging...)
Flexibility in Programming
Only found on more expensive clock radios, this model will allow you to use the "Sleep" feature to listen to a particular station (or podcast with the Auxiliary feature) at night, and then to wake to radio on a different station. In addition, all alarms allow Daily, Mon-Fri, or Single, with the Audible Alarm using a gentle "ramp-up" feature.Read more ›
That said, here's what I dislike: when you press and hold the power-on button to use the sleep timer, the display becomes painfully bright, "only" about 15 seconds, but I find it extremely annoying. I'm working on developing a feel for how long to hold the button down without having to look at the display so I can just keep my eyes closed.
The other thing I dislike: the nap timer button is right next to the power-on/sleep timer button, making it very easy to accidentally hit the nap timer button without realizing it while feeling around for the power button, thus treating yourself and any sleep partner to the alarm a little while later. Ugh. Did that twice, then built a little "A-frame" of card stock & taped it over the nap timer button so I don't hit it by accident again. Note the power/sleep timer button *is* dimly (nicely) illuminated, so the nap timer button can be avoided if you don't mind opening your eyes, lifting your head up to see the power button, and focusing your attention on hitting nothing but the power button.
It's too bad the battery backup isn't good for more than a few minutes; hopefully this won't prove to be a significant problem. I didn't find setting the clock, alarms, or digital presets difficult, though I did need to use the manual to figure it out.
