From the Manufacturer
The Sangean RCR-3 has everything you could want in a beautifully styled, advanced, state-of-the-art atomic clock radio. It updates its time automatically from the U.S. Bureau of standards in Boulder, Colorado, so you are assured of accurate and reliable time. It offers features and performance not to be found in even the most expensive clock radios in the market, such as an automatic tuning system that scans and programs your presets automatically for all your local radio stations depending on signal strength of the stations. The synchronized analog clock allows for quick reading.
In addition, the RCR-3 has the ability to set four different alarm times throughout the week, allowing different time settings on a daily basis for being awaken by the radio or the buzzer--this could mean no more forgetting to turn on the alarm on Sunday and not getting bothered by alarms on a Saturday. Additional features include a sleep timer (15-120 minutes), snooze, dimmer, and a dual-time HWS (Humane Waking System) to gently ease you out of your slumber. It also features a tone control for more powerful overall sound and a headphone jack for private listening.
LCD Display with Adjustable Brightness
An easy-to-read LCD display shows you station and time as well as other information. The segment-style LCD screen measures 3.19" x 0.83", and is backlit to be easy to see even across the room. A built-in dimmer lets you adjust the brightness according to your needs.
Dual Alarm with Humane Wake System
The RCR-3 features two separate alarms with the option of setting individual days for alarms to sound. The radio alarm turns on your favorite station at a predetermined time. There's also a Humane Wake System (HWS) buzzer alarm, which wakes you up gradually with an incrementally increasing alarm instead of a harsh, instant noise. Other alarm functions include a Snooze function and adjustable nap and sleep timers.
Convenient Radio Functions
PLL synthesized tuning provides exact, fade-free reception. 14 Memory Presets for 7 AM or 7 FM station selection are available and easily visible in the large LCD display. Fill your presets with Auto Seek, which finds your active stations automatically.
Connect Your Portable Digital Player
A 3.5mm Aux-in socket allows you to connect your iPod, smartphone, or other portable digital music player using a male-to-male 3.5mm stereo cable.

The radio is sensitive - much better reception than the radio it replaces. The sound is loud and clear, the tone control helps. The AM and FM channels are easy to set - the tuning button allows for up and down and you just push one of the top located buttons until the channel is memorized. There's both a nap button which allows you to nap a bit before the alarm goes off. There's an auxiliary jack on the back to plug an iPod in but there is no charging provision. There is a headphone jack for private listening. It automatically scans the AM and FM bands and sets the channels to the strongest stations in your area. You can override them simply.
The clocks are easy to read. The LCD display up on top and the big and clear analog down below. They're locked together so that setting one sets both. The clock sets itself either manually or automatically picking up the WWV signal from Colorado. One button changes daylight savings time on and off.
The alarm uses the Human Waking System which gently rises in volume on both the buzzer or radio. There are four separate alarms that you can use. I work a 9/80 schedule so one is set for five days a week and another is set for four days a week. The alarm light glows to tell you which is in affect. The snooze button is large and located on top. When the alarm goes off the clock comes to full brightness and the analog face glows a nice orange. Otherwise the display's brightness can be adjusted with a knob on the bottom. When the alarm goes off the brightness is enough to act as a nightlight to maneuver around the room - a nice touch. There's two buzzer alarms and two radio alarms - you can set the alarm to go off with any memorized radio station. If the radio station's signal isn't strong enough the clock will sound the buzzer.
The build is solid. It doesn't feel cheap at all. The buttons are easy to use.
To silence the alarm you can tap the large top mounted snooze button but to shut it off you have to tap the small power button on the face. I suppose this makes sure a sleeper who might drift off back to sleep is fully awake to find that small button. There is no battery back-up for the clock.
Overall this is a fine clock radio with a modern design and features.
I ordered this clock radio knowing that it has a high failure rate and a lot of negative reviews. And my first one lived down to expectations. Not only did the time refuse to sync either with that master clock someplace in Colorado or a local FM RDS station, even setting the time manually proved to be impossible. Amazon was great with the exchange. On to clock #2...
This one works!
• The analog dial is easy to read for nearsighted clock-owners, even at 3 in the morning.
• You can set the glow amount on the dial. I leave it just bright enough to read the clock face at night.
* There's a button you can push that makes the clock glow so bright you can put your glasses away and jump into bed without tripping over anything. Another push of the button restores whatever dimness you keep the clock set on normally.
• You can set the digital readout above the clock dial to show the time, date, or day of the week, like "SEP23 TUE" or "2014 TUE" or "9:46 AM."
• Tone quality is excellent for a clock radio.
• That "humane waking system" gradually increasing radio volume alarm is nice!
• You can go to sleep with one radio station on and wake up to a different one.
• It's a beautiful clock, looks like an art deco mantel clock.
• This clock is fairly difficult to to set up and program. The manual should be rewritten by a native English speaker teaming with someone using the clock for the first time.
• Contrary to the statements in a few old reviews, you cannot set the alarm to be different for each day of the week... too bad, I would have used that. The settings are Weekday, Weekend, Once, and Daily.
The programming in the clock has changed since it first came out. In addition to the alarm setting I just mentioned, all alarms can now be set to either radio or buzzer.
So for as long as this clock works right, it's the best clock radio in the world — or least the best one I've owned.
Addendum....i loved the radio, the problem is the update from the weather service stopped suddenly, i have tried everything to get it working again w/o success...I wanted the big clock on it as it is easy to turn and read it at night....other then that, it is working pretty good...that part of the clock does not work anymore, very not happy after a year!!
