The Sangean PR-D9W Weather Alert Radio
A perfect companion while on-the-go and to keep you informed at home through severe weather

The Sangean PR-D9W Weather Alert Radio
Featuring an adjustable LCD display with battery indicator. View larger

The PR-D9W is a versatile device, a well-designed portable AM/FM Stereo radio coupled with being certified as a "Public Alert" emergency radio. It features a built-in dual alarm clock, battery selector for alkaline/rechargeable NiMH, 19 total memory presets, sleep and snooze function, and an easy to read large LCD display with adjustable illumination. All of these capabilities make the PR-D9W Weather Alert a reliable companion for the bedroom, kitchen, or garage.

Despite our advances in technology, weather still plays a sometimes dangerous role in our lives. Internet and television are usually good sources of information, but in some weather emergencies a portable radio can be essential. The PR-D9W AM/FM Weather Alert Radio can sit by your bedside providing a pleasant tune or a little wake up call, all the while ensuring that you can have weather information at any time, including an emergency.

Large LCD Screen

The large LCD screen features easy readability, with settings to adjust the backlight illumination.

AM/FM/NOAA Radio with 19 Memory Presets and Auto Scan

The built-in radio features AM/FM tuning, as well as NOAA weather bands. The PR-D9W has 19 memory presets to select your favorite stations, as well as an Auto Scan feature to help you find them. A siren function gives you NOAA weather alerts during emergencies to help you be prepared.

Dual Alarm

The PR-D9W is a perfect bedside alarm clock. You can set dual alarm times and choose waking to AM/FM radio or HWS (Human Wake-up System) buzzer alarms. There are also sleep and snooze functions (push any button except the power button to engage the snooze funtion while the alarm is active).

Battery Selector

There are several options to power the PR-D9W, so you can be prepared in case of an emergency. In addition to regular AC power, you can choose between regular alkaline batteries and rechargeable NiMH. Select the NiMH setting to recharge your compatible batteries when the PR-D9W is plugged in.

The PR-D9W also features low power consumption, using 4 AA Alkaline batteries can play the radio for over 25 hours

Backup Capacitor Stores Memory Settings

A super capacitor in the PR-D9W stores your clock and memory presets in case of a power outage--so even if you've forgotten to put batteries in the radio, you can be prepared when the power goes out and not need to spend time resetting the clock and other presets. (The back-up capacitor can maintain the preset and clock for 5 minutes only.)

Built-In Headphone Stereo Amplifier

In addition to listening via the embedded speaker, the PR-D9W has a built-in headphone amplifier for reliable audio quality during private listening. A 5 + 5mW stereo amp and 16ohm flat response gives you extra clarity and fidelity when listening to your favorite radio stations.

First, the bad news. Another user reported a problem with the headphone output, which I also experienced. The right channel on the headphones output has an enormous hiss to it, which does disappear if I turn the volume way up. Unfortunately, I'm to old to appreciate loud music through headphones. I just ordered a replacement radio. I've been an Amazon Prime customer for years, and hardly ever return anything. But perfect isn't perfect, and when I spend money I want to get a sample of the product that's as good as it can be. So I look forward to receiving my replacement, with no hiss. Not a biggey.

Other than the headphone hiss, the product's as perfect as it can be, for my needs. I wanted a small form-factor, simple portable radio and this little baby is it. My main use is FM radio, both music and NPR shows. I occasionally listen to AM news or sports.

At any rate, I'm fairly techy, and don't have any problem with most button-pushing user interfaces. I played with it for half an hour, read the book, and find that it's a lot easier to use than I expected. It's not as simple as the Sangean WR-11 (which I covet), but it's a lot easier than many UI's that I've dealt with.

There are three minor annoyances:

1) There are two tuning "modes" to this radio. My Favorite channels mode allows you to scroll up and down, using the cursor arrows, through up to 19 channels that you've saved. The other mode is direct tuning, either in steps or push-and-hold to scan to the next strong channel. When you switch from favorites back to direct tuning, it brings you back to wherever you were on the dial before you entered favorites mode. I wish it would just stay on the current frequency. Others may prefer the way it actually operates.

The new Sangean PR-D9W integrates the key design components of the Sangean PR-D7 portable radio with the functionality of the Sangean DT-400W (a pocket radio) offering listener's one really neat and flexible form factor. About the size of a trade paperback and smaller than the PR-D7 radio, the PR-D9W is a true travel radio loaded with features not found on other Sangean portable radios.

The Sangean PR-D9W is equally at home in a hotel room, hospital room or night stand in your bedroom. What surprised me after I unboxed this radio was the sound from its 2.25-inch speaker, which I now prefer over the PR-D7 radio. Very subjective here!

BTW, while I am not a Dxer, I was able last night to pick up AM stations from California, Utah and New Mexico from my home in Mesa, Arizona. I listen to NPR all day and jazz in the evening, the PR-D9W does its job in either case.

The PR-D9W is priced at 75% less than the Tivoli Songbook and has more usable features.

If you are looking for a travel radio that can also serve other roles in your radio sphere (high utilization factor) the Sangean PR-D9 may just be the radio for you.

For years, I have tried every type of portable radio I could find so that I could listen to my public radio station in the morning, moving it from the bedroom to the bathroom to the kitchen. If it was a rainy morning, I knew the reception would be poor. If it was slightly bumped, the carefully tuned station would be lost. I finally dropped my last "shower" radio and decided to find a more permanent solution.
This Sangean PR-D9W is PERFECT!! The sound quality is unbelievable. I no longer have to worry about losing reception. It is the best purchase I have made. I was hesitant to spend this kind of money for a radio, but if I had only known it could be this good, I would have done it a long time ago. I love everything about it. I purchased the recommended rechargeable batteries at the same time. I want to do everything right by this radio! How wonderful to wake up to crystal clear NPR rather than to undiscernable static! It is small enough for travel, comes with a nice travel sleeve to protect it, and I don't think I will ever be separated from this radio. The weather alert function is appreciated, as our area has been under tornado watches recently and we seem to lose power with the frequent and powerful storms. I feel much more secure having this radio.

Well like many others I'm an owner of Sony ICF-M410LIV AM FM Weather Band radios. They gave me many years of rugged service until recently when the AM part of the radios gave out. Being that I listen to AM about 95 percent of the time at work it was time for a replacement.

Here were the 3 things I needed from a radio: Digital tuner, a Weather band and a channel lock button. The Sangean met those requirements and the size was a little smaller than the Sony, which was good. The only hesitation was this was a new model but I figured I'd order it anyway.

1st impressions after a few days: Build quality is good, as expected with a Sangean. Reception is excellent and battery usage is good also. I have 3 reasons for not giving this 4 or 5 stars:

1. The radio shut off a few times for no reason. I turned the lock button off and powered the radio back on. Still don't know why it happened.
2. The audio quality has more of a bass tone than I prefer. Way more than the Sony and more than the Sangean PR-D7 which I own also. A separate tone button would have been nice.
3. No station presets. The process of setting the presets and then recalling them is kind of ridiculous. Way too involved.

Hopefully a future model from Sangean or another manufacturer will address these issues. But for what I'm looking for, this seems to be the best option out there.

UPDATE: I gave it a chance but I returned the PR-D9W. The AM reception was getting progressively worse and the radio was still turning off for no reason. Also there was a constant high pitched noise that was just loud enough to be annoying. Too bad because I own the PR-D7 and love it. Hopefully others will have better luck than I did.
