Answer:
I have both radios. Normal to louder volume levels they sound the same. But when listening at very low volume levels there is noticeable noise/hiss from the Tivoli, where there is none of this from the Sangean. IMHO, the WR-11 is the better radio between the two.

Answer:
It is mono. The speaker is very good. It has a lot of bass - maybe sometimes a bit too much depending on what you listen too.

Answer:
Try the external antenna (extended, switch it to external). Try another location in the house for the radio. Try orienting the antenna differently and at least a foot away from large metal objects (which could change the nature of the antenna or block the signal). Try using a dipole antenna located remotely, higher, or… see more Try the external antenna (extended, switch it to external). Try another location in the house for the radio. Try orienting the antenna differently and at least a foot away from large metal objects (which could change the nature of the antenna or block the signal). Try using a dipole antenna located remotely, higher, or in the clear with respect to the desired station. This may mean a getting a balun ($5), some coax (several dollars), and a folded FM dipole antenna ($7). Finally, consider putting an RF preamplifier between the folded dipole antenna and the radio. If none of that helps, you have a difficult location, a faulty radio, or a requirement to receive a station with too weak a signal to your location.
When it's finally working and you realize that it has a serious deficit in fidelity (muddy, bassy, little midrange, no highs), as I did, put a more ordinary radio nearby and turn it up just enough to hear the midrange and highs. The combined sound will be a lot more like you had hoped for to begin with. I am profoundly displeased with the lack of audio fidelity and range in this radio. It is essentially a subwoofer with a tuner and not much more. How people rate it so highly is a complete and utter mystery to me. A profound ignorance of audio fidelity in the population at large, I guess. see less

Answer:
I did get it to work; don't use it much. I think that if you plug in the jack and turn it on (possibly to FM) it picks up AS INPUT and plays through the radio's speakers. I have and use the Sangean 12 (which I love) so I have forgotten how the 11 works--but keep in mind it works as an input TO the radio, not OUT. I… see more I did get it to work; don't use it much.

Answer:
I'm not sure what you mean. This just has a regular plug. It's very simple. Sorry I can't help.

Answer:
Yes you will Mike. I believe you will need a step down transformer as I did in New Zealand where the NZ Voltage is also 230 V 50 HZ. As the radio is made in the USA where they have 120V 60 Hz if you don't use the step down transformer there will be too much power supplied to the radio so it could be severely damaged.… see more Yes you will Mike.
