4 out of 5 eggsGood Choice if you want FM/AM and Aux

Pros: Great sound for the money, nice warm bass and crisp tones from radio, iPod, and Aux. The sound controls, including the the 3D make a difference and let you adjus to your taste or the particular music. The sound really fills the room and it sounds great whether you are facing the radio or not.
The display is easy to read but not too bright. The radio text feature is cool (but you can turn it off too).
5th gen iPod Nano fits well on dock. Can be controlled on iPod, on the radio or with remote.
Source selection lets you leave Aux input plugged in (older Sangean radios didn't do this).
Wood cabinet looks nice.
Full instruction booklet and oversize poster of menu tree.

Cons: The dials to control the volume and tuning/iPod scroll are touchy and will jump around if you try to turn them too quickly or with two fingers at the same time. The controls on top and the iPod dock are made of a dull plastic that cheapens the look a bit.
The bass is not as warm as some of the single speaker models for Sangean (WR-2) and Tivoli.

Other Thoughts: In this $100 range you have so many choices for ipod docks and radios, but the WR-5 is one of the few that gives you AM/FM radio, and Aux input and Hi-Fi table top sound. If it weren't for my wife's iPod I probably would wave opted for the WR-2. I have a Cowon mp3 player (from New Egg too) and I use the Aux input and it sounds great. I would recommend this if you need a nice radio as much as you need and iPod dock. The touchy dials are all that prevent this from getting 5 stars.
For the price it is hard to beat!

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: No idea... yet.

Cons: The WR-5 arrived today, and I was looking forward to putting it to use. However, the audio, and iPod controls were non-existent. Imagine that... a new audio device and no sound what-so-ever from any source (am, fm, iPod). Ridiculous. I called Sangean, and they confirmed it was a bad radio that slipped past thier QA/QC. Newegg is mailing out a replacement as I type this. Hopefully the second unit will work. If not, this will be the first and last Sangean product I purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsMuch Better Than I Had Expected

Pros: This is the first Sangean product I've ever owned. I had been wanting a iPod dock radio for a wile. But to be honest most of the don't look all that nice. And the few I've listen to at WalMart, Target, Best Buy, and other places sound like a cheap tinny radio. And the price they charge for them is high-way robbery.

This is THE BEST iPod DOCK I've ever hear! I just want to know how they get deep bass out of two 2-1/2" speakers. I've head the Bose wave radio and the Cambridge Soundworks radios, I would put this one up there with them, But $150.00 + less for it.
They even throw in a nice little remote.

I was using the radio, for the FM band its as good as I expected. But the pleasant surprise came when I switched over to the AM band. The radio can pick up 8 stations (day or night). Heck my car radio can only pickup 4 and my AV-Receiver and only get 2 stations and I even have an antenna wired up to the AM leads. Now that I can listen to AM, I am!

Cons: Not enough radio presets. (Not a biggie tho)
The alarm is not loud enough. With as loud as the speakers can be gotten too, that was a disappointment. Glad I didn't buy it for that reason alone.

Other Thoughts: I really like the Radio Data System (FM only tho) Station ID, Song info and what ever else the station wants to program the RDS to show on your display. I dropped my iPhone in the dock, it sort of works with my iPhone. It fully works with my gen 6 "iPod Classic" Its funny I've not been this happy with a electronic device in a long time. The clock even show the month, date, and day (Apr 15 Fir) and the year in another setting. Heck it also lets you set Daylight Savings time. That is cool!
