We've been using this radio while working on our turn of the century remodel for the past year. It has taken pleanty of saw dust and paint splatters, yet it still sounds just as good as the day we bought it. We live in a small town many miles from the nearest public radio station, but it picks up very well. It even has an aux input for playing an ipod. The only thing I don't understand is why it has a built in flash light. Sofar, this has beem completely useless.

I like this radio a lot. It's a perfect size and built like a tank. The tuner is excellent and best of all, it's analog. I've had radios with digital tuners in the past and when you unplug them to move them, they reset and you have to find your station all over again. When you're on a job site, that can happen a lot. Like others have said, the sound is a little bass heavy but I don't think most people will have a problem with it. Even classical music sounds great on it. For general use, I find just wrapping the cord around the top easier than using the hide-away thing in the back.

I highly recommend this radio, especially to fellow contractors. It's simple, tough and sounds great.

Well made, very sturdy shop radio has a bass boost that you cannot turn off. Everything but classical music booms out with so much bass that I cannot hear lyrics. Talk radio is hopeless. The results are loud but unsatisfactory - sure to disturb all your neighbors.

Radio would be SO much better if it had a bass-boost off switch. It's a shame. Hey guys, how about adding tone control knobs?

I bought the Sangean U-1 before my summer holiday. We needed a radio for our sea vacation. This radio has been the soundtrack of our vacation.

1. Very simple to use.
2. Rock solid and well built.
3. The handles are very strong and useful.
4. All knobs and switch are very precise to handle.
5. You can use the radio either with batteries or with AC current.
6. I found the AC wire compartment on the back of the radio very comfortable.
7. The sound is precise and detailed. Yes, it is boomy. However, if this may be a problem when you use the radio indoor, when you use the radio outdoor it is not a problem any more: It becomes an advantage because you can hear the sound better.
8. FM tuning is great. (I did not use AM: in Italy they are not diffused).
9. Last, you can easily connect your iPod to the radio (but buy a stereo-to-mono adapter because the radio is mono and your iPod is stereo).

This my two cents "suggestions for improvement". If these were done, this radio would be simply perfect.
1. The antenna can be unscrewed for transportation. However, there is not a compartment to place it. It would be nice if they would build one.
2. I'd like the radio to come with rechargeable batteries that recharge automatically when you use the radio via AC.

While the construction of the radio seems to be OK, its the radio itself that is dissapointing. After turning the radio on and selecting the channel to listen to, aprox 10 minutes later I have to retune the dial. Drift seems to be a big issue with this radio. In the world of electronics there should be a better lock on the station than this. I have to adjust for drift throughout the day using this radio. Its not just once but several times a day.

I have had this radio for several years, therefore; the problem with the volume control that my unit has may have been resolved by now. This is a good radio, I have used it outdoors, indoors, and have taken it camping many times. The only issue I have is with the volume control, after about a year the volume control got to the point where it was no longer linear. As you turn the volume control the volume goes up and down, it does not get gradually louder or softer as with most volume controls. You can still get the radio to the desired volume, however; to do so you need to work with the volume control until you reach the desired volume. Except for this, it has been an excellent radio.

Initially most impressive. Heavy- looks indestructible. Invested in charger, rechareable d cells when I purchased, intending to carry out to farm, woods. But cover of electrical cord niche flopped open as I lifted out of box. Latch makes term "rugged" laughable. Thin, flimsy plastic. Tried- simply cannot be reglued- plastic too thin. What now- load up with batteries, carry with cord hanging behind, plastic lid flopping? Poor execution of details ruins otherwise good design, because it plays from aux input well and radio seems to have good sensitivity. Sound is very full for a battery powered speaker. A shame, really.
