I emailed Sangean and they sent the following reply.

Me:
I understand that the first batch of WR-12 radio's had issues. If I purchase a WR-12 from Amazon today will I receive "the new and improved WR-12
" that you reference in your comments post on Amazon reviews?

Hello all. This is Bob from Sangean America Inc.
I'm happy to inform you that we are now shipping the new and improved WR-12.
It now passes Sangean's stringent quality control. The FM tuning and audio problem found in earlier WR-12's has been corrected.
If you would like to swap your original unit with the new WR-12, you may return it to Amazon.com, or contact us. Please accept our apology for any inconvenience this may have caused you, and many thanks to our loyal customers.

Sangean:
Mr. ......,

Thank you for your interest in the WR-12.
Yes, all the units sold by Amazon are now the new and improved units.

Sincerely,

Bob Polhamus
Customer Service Rep

My unit seems to function fine. The sound is clear and the radio locks stations in as it should. I have the WR-2 and WR-11. So far I like the WR-12 out of the bunch.

Bought this in June 2013 for use at a remote off-grid cabin, which obtains power through solar panels and distributes household power from an inverter. Due to remoteness I wanted a radio with a good tuner and narrowed it down to a few options. One brand I originally had in mind I ultimately dismissed after reading about longevity issues and cheap components, bringing me to Sangean. The WR-2 and less expensive WR-11 are purported to be very good radios, however I read numerous reviews about the WR-2 loosing presets and time when it is unplugged and being off-grid I'd rather not have a radio using "vampire power" anyway. My main concern with the WR-11 was it appeared the scale of the tuner readout would make it difficult to find a specific station, which lead me to prefer the WR-12 with it's nearly full width display. Although I was very concerned about the reported issues (both here and elsewhere), I went ahead and ordered one based on reports that the issue fixed and Amazon's stock had been purged.

I am happy to report that I have none of the tuning or sound issues reported. The bass is a bit boomy and hooty (I expected as much from the small so-called sub-woofer), so I turned the bass control down about 1/4 turn to compensate. That's all it needed and the sound is surprisingly good! The radio section did not disappoint at all. It pulls in FM stations ~70 miles away with the built in antenna. The bundled external antenna improves reception marginally, but since it's only a wire maybe 4' long and not a proper areal I wasn't surprised. None the less it does make the difference between a marginal station and a useable one when the station is week. It would be really interesting to see far this could be pushed with a proper outdoor antenna.

I love the styling of this radio and the heavy wooden case gives its a very authentic and deep tone. But the knobs are very plasticy and let down the overall ascetic of the radio. But what's much worse is the turning dial is a whole digit off. KissFM on 102.7 is somewhere around 101.2 on the dial. For a product at this price point that's just unacceptable. If it was $50 I would keep it and live with the defect, but at ~$150 that kind of defect is just unacceptable so I will be returning it and trying perhaps a Crosley Ranchero.

Update: Replaced the Sangean with a Tivoli which allowed me to do a side by side comparison. The Sangean has a better tuner despite the fact the dial is way off, but at low to moderate volumes the smaller Tivoli makes a nicer sound. The Sangean has tone control but still leave the mids very flat. The Tivoli lacks any tone adjustment but luckily has a very balanced sound. The dial is spot on and the geared tuner dial makes the quality feel a little better on the Tivoli.

The WR-12 was the radio I wanted to buy, but based on poor reviews here and elsewhere, I went with the well-reviewed WR-11. Unfortunately that particular unit seemed to have the same bass-heavy, muffled, as if under a pillow sound that others have been complaining the WR-12 has.

Based on the recent positive review here and a Sangean rep's comments about improving the WR-12's sound and quality control, I decided to give the 12 a shot. I never listened to a "bad" 12, so I cannot swear mine is improved over the models others disliked; but the unit I received sounds good to my non-expert ear, and vastly better than the WR-11. I'm returning the 11 and keeping the 12.

Given other reviews I'm guessing most WR-11s are just fine, and according to Sangean's rep all WR-12s available through Amazon also check out fine. Just be aware that there have been problems.

I read the product reviews on several Sangean radios and felt comfortable in ordering the WR-12 although the ratings were in the dumps shortly after it's initial introduction. I called Sangean and the tech I spoke to assured me that the problem had been fixed that had been referred to in earlier reviews. I ordered it, gave it as a Christmas gift to the love of my life. She opened it Christmas Eve and loved the look right away. We plugged it in, played with the buttons a little bit, then WE TURNED HER UP WAY LOUD!!! THE SOUND WAS SIMPLY AWESOME!!! This was great money spent and my Honey, who loves her music loud, is a-rocking and a-rolling. I scored big with this little sound-machine in value and where it counts most - with my girl!... whoo-hoo!!!
