Even though the WR-2 is advertised as an AM/FM radio, it offers much more than a standard digital tuner, including a Radio Data System (RDS) that displays short text messages on applicable FM stations, along with support for the Enhanced Other Network (EON) and its traffic information (available in certain regions). And unlike most tabletop radios, the WR-2 lets listeners adjust the treble and bass levels via the variable volume control. In its default mode, the rotary volume knob displays the volume level from 1 to 60. Tap it once, however, and it turns into a full-range treble control, and two taps creates a full-range bass control. Additional features include a clock with an alarm (radio or buzzer), an auxiliary input jack for connecting such devices as an iPod or MP3 player (both of which sound great through the speaker), a recording output jack, 10 memory presets that help you quickly find your favorite stations, and a full-featured infrared remote control.
A final bonus stems from the power backup function, which plays the radio for six minutes during a power failure (great for emergencies) and retains the memory preset and clock values for about an hour. The WR-2 measures roughly 9.5 by 4.5 by 6 inches (W x H x D) and weighs 5.5 pounds.

I listen to a lot of AM talk radio. I also live in a low land area with poor cell phone and poor radio reception, especially AM. I took a chance. WOW, am I pleased. Read morePublished 2 days ago by Badger
As a room radio this is good unit. But not a bedroom alarm radio. The display panel is back-lit so to see with the lights on you need it set high, but in the middle of the night... Read morePublished 4 days ago by Jim Padden

Great sound and reception, but the number screen is too bright when numbers are legible and too dim to read them when asleep.Published 11 days ago by Grace E. Callanan
