Top Customer Reviews
- here are my nitpicks:
1. LCD backlight only stays on for 7 seconds
2. 1KHz tuning increment setting is inconvenient (you have to push in and turn the rotary knob first, and it only lasts for one tuning session)
3. too few SW memory settings
4. the back stand is useless unless you use the radio while sitting at a desk - a much better approach is to take an 8x10 sheet of plexiglass, heat and bend to make a stand so the radio sits more upright for use...
5. the build feels 'flimsy' as the radio doesn't have a solid feel
6. there is a discernable (1-second) delay when entering digits in the direct-access keypad - you'll need to get used to the delay, and the keys require more pressure than you'd expect for a keypad..
7. battery life is not great
Post Script: Several weeks later I have found the radio I wanted Sangean 505 to be: The Kaito 1102, which gets great AM radio, has stronger FM than the Sangean, is smaller, and costs significantly less. To save even more money, the Kaito clone, the Degen 1102, costs another 15% less but arrives with only a Chinese operating manual.
Update: The Kaito 1103, in spite of its ergonomical difficulties, is the uncontested king of FM reception with above average AM reception. Ironically, the cheap GE Superradio III is the king of AM reception, largely because it has an 8-inch internal ferrite AM antenna, twice the size of any other radio.

The radio works perfect. Good sound, easy to use. The transformator for wired electricity does not fit in this country (Netherlands) so is useless. So batteries is the only option.Published 10 months ago by harry p.

WWCR is more difficult to receive and this radio falls... Read more
The radio itself works well. The reason for only three stars is the charger does not put out 6V only 4.9V. The battery low icon shows as soon as the charger is plugged in.Published 11 months ago by Mark Harman
