1 out of 5 eggsUpgrade ruins it

Pros: Great little wifi radio that was a little quirky in the control department.

Cons: Ruined by upgrade 003, in which Reciva was trying to implement an EU requirement that wouldn't allow a certain component to stay powered. Consequently when you turn it on, it takes over 60 seconds to connect. There is no easy way to revert to the earlier version (002) without resorting to complicated 3rd party software. In effect, the upgrade has turned this into a pricey brick.

Other Thoughts: Sangean did not respond to my inquiries. The problem is documented on the Reciva forum. If you buy, do not upgrade to version 003 if you have that choice.

5 out of 5 eggsThe Future of Broadcast Radio

Pros: I am impressed with the fit, finish and sound of this unit. Set up to my secure wireless router took about one minute. Sound quality is very nice once you adjust the bass/treble to your liking. No drop outs or pauses so far. Easy to adjust if you take time to read directions.

Cons: Wish it had a basic internal search function so I could enter call letters of a particular station. But then, perhaps the reciva.com function will allow that. I have yet to explore that functionality.

Other Thoughts: I have listened to shortwave stations for decades but find this device to offer incredible choices with solid sound and fidelity. From the Cook Islands, to France, to Spain to domestic AM stations, its all there and the fun is in the exploring. It's the future of broadcasting.

4 out of 5 eggsFirst Impressions

Pros: Sound quality is very nice. You'll get used to the single knob control that some people complain about.

Cons: The first thing I noticed was that the unit could find my WiFi at my desired location. (It found my neighbors) My previous unit a Roku didn't have this problem nor does my existing iPod Touch. I relocatated the unit across the room and the unit connected. The unfortunate thing about it's location is that the remote seems to only work from 10-15 feet which is to short to communicate with it from my seating/sleeping location.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this item as Alarm clock radio and compared to the others I evaluated, build, sound and feature quality seem to be better. Ultimately I think I made the right choice, the Wifi issue can be resolved by adding another access point.

5 out of 5 eggsI love it!

Pros: Great radio, lots of fun and something no ones knows about. We lost our Air America station and now I have several to choose from. My piano tuner thought it was my stereo system it was sitting in front of. I like many features such as the ability to plug my stereo or low power transmitter into it so I can listen to my stations anywhere in my house without moving my radio. Also I have carried to other wifi networks and can set it up in a minute and have it remember my own home settings. Finding new stations has been a blast, my wife and I were dancing to one station for an hour - nice. I would recommend it to anyone especially those who wish to avoid turning on their pc. The playlists created on the Recivia web site or on the radio is quite adequate.

Cons: Setti.ng up my wifi required me to change my router to linksys so that it would be stable/ My old router would cause drop outs if I did not reboot my router. Not really the radios fault.

Other Thoughts: I am thinking of buying more to sell to my friends and neighbors for christmas

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: - Excellent sound quality.
- Locks Wifi signal even at distances (>50m).
- Great looks and a solid build
- Sangeans are quality radios
- Built in Clock with adjustable dimmer
- simple to setup
- Reciva.com works like a champ with this product (please have a look at the site before purchasing)

Cons: I little wacky in terms of "tuning" in radio stations. The display is on the small side and scrolling through the stations despite the categories (there's 6000 stations!) can be tedious.

Other Thoughts: If you like radio, you'll love this product. It's expensive, but worth the price

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent product

Pros: Initial impressions: Very well made. Heavy. Excellent sound quality. Intuitive user interface (throw away the manual). I live in a small radio market where the local stations are weak and frequently off the air. I can now get my favorite shows dependibly with perfect reception and fidelity.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsEXACTLY what I'd hoped for!

Pros: In chronolgical order, rather than by importance:

1) Arrived quickly, safely;
2) Attractive and well-made.
3) Very quick and straightforward setup;
4) Comprehensive manual as well as quick-view sheet for reference;
5) From time it was plugged in and powered up to playing the station of my choice, under one minute.
6) Excellent sound, especially for size.
7) Offers choice of Wifi or cabled connetion.
8) Offers an alarm clock and sleep function.
9) Has audio out jack in addition to a headphone jack. Not all models/brands out there have an audio out jack.

Cons: In all honesty, have not found one yet. If I do, I will come back and update this review.

Other Thoughts: I've always listened to music by way of FM radio, but found that I was becoming more dissatisfied with FM radio programming as time passed. Stations were being sold, bought out, the music format and style changed, until finally I found myself practically hating "regular" radio. The commercials were driving me nuts! Additionally, I am not what anyone could classify as a "channel flipper". With the exception of being in the mood for a different genre now and then, I'd rather pick a station and just leave it there, because I like it.

I considered satellite radio, but after a fair amount of research, concluded that there was a pretty paltry selection of stations to choose from. Sure, there might be lots of stations out there, but how many actually fit my tastes was a different matter altogether. When I am reading or writing, I prefer Smooth Jazz because it doesn't interfere with my thinking...yeah, yeah, go ahead and laugh if you want to =D.
I did try a three day satellite radio

5 out of 5 eggsExceeded My Expectations!

Pros: This radio has defiantly exceeded my expectations. It sounds as good as or better than any radio in its class. It took about 15 minutes to set up and the documentation (89 pages) is divided in easy to find sections. I like the single knob control and think it makes using the radio easy. The remote control has 30 buttons and is about the size of a credit card. The buttons are a nice size, well marked and spaced so it is easy to use. I love the ability to be able to play all of my music from my media network hard drive. People visiting have made only positive comments about the looks, size and sound. I like this so much I bought a second one!

Cons: The LCD is on the small side and you need to be less than 8 feet away to read the display. But I am 58 years old and my eyes aren’t what they use to be.
