I compared various models from C.Crane and Sangean, and decided on the Sangean PR-D5. I don't need shortwave or weather bands, and I wanted a digital tuner, but I don't need anything else. This radio sits by my home office desk, and I listen to it while working. Worked great for 4 weeks, then stopped cold in the middle of the day. Granted, I hadn't paid much attention to the screen, so I probably missed the low-battery indicator. Was just a "PWR" on the screen and no buttons worked. The only way to reset this thing is to take the old batteries out, wait 3-5 full minutes until the PWR is gone from the screen, then put new batteries in. In contrast, the Superadio III would begin to fade when batteries were about to die, but it would respond instantly when new batteries were installed. During the 5 minutes without battery or AC, the Sangean does maintain your radio station settings, but apparently not the clock - not important to me, since I have clocks around me, but could be an issue for someone else.
The radio performs well, no station drift, and picks up AM and FM stations as well as the GE. But the battery swap procedure taking 3-5 minutes for no good reason cost this radio one star in my rating.
The preset buttons are very easy to program and I love the volume knob on the side, which is easy to turn.
If this radio had a rechargeable built-in battery like my bluetooth speakers, that would make it completely perfect. Otherwise, it's *almost* completely perfect.
Note: The picture looks black and white, but it's not. Our bathroom is white and grey!
I've bought hundreds of things from Amazon and this was the first item I've ever had to return. Amazon makes that process hassle-free so I have to compliment them on that.
Most important, it's a well built, user friendly, compact, two speaker portable with long battery life and very handy for moving around.
Very happy with features and the sound with a reasonable size and weight.

AUX shows the speakers to be lacking in audio dynamic range (my guess based on the sound). Sound is not sharp compared to one of those Bluetooth speakers that cost a $100 or more CAD.
Reception is strong as many reviewers have mentioned and is expected due to the large ferrite bar for AM reception. It can pull in CJAD 800 in Montreal from Ottawa but with static. Radio is in a concrete building and about 15 feet from a large window. I bring the radio next to the window and CJAD comes in loud and clear. It's all about placement, living in a concrete building.
The positives about this radio are the station pre-set buttons allowing me to go from channel to channel at the touch of a button. I have about 3 AM stations on pre-set buttons and 3 FM stations but I mostly listen only to CBC Radio One on FM. The convenience of having the pre-set push buttons are also heavily influencing my overall evaluation and decision. If the AM band sounded better, this radio would get a 5 star rating from me. As is, I would give it 4.5 stars. BTW, the Panasonic 2400 radio is surprisingly very good too and for the stations I want to listen to, pulls them in like the Sangean. This is by no means a real test as I would have to go to a location with bad reception and go through the whole dial and compare station by station. But I don't have time for that.
I turned the radio off last night when I was going to bed. Tried to turn it on this morning, to hear the morning news: nothing. It does NOT turn on.
Checked that the radio was plugged in: yes. Checked that the outlet was working with another appliance: yes. Even checked that the batteries were good: yes, top of the range for 'good'. Read the manual: no instructions for radio won't turn on.
Not only am I disappointed, but I'm out $100 plus tax! Expensive lesson.
But one word of caution. They eat batteries and the batteries are c cells, which are very expensive compared to D and AA cells. I'm no sure if there is a rechargeable version of the stereo radio but there is one of the mono radio and I would recommend it as likely to be both an excellent radio and a money saver.
