Other Thoughts: (I did not buy mine from NewEgg)
The Sangean is a big portable. It makes a good table radio; and though it has a ridge in the back that acts as a grip to pick it up, it would benefit from some sort of handle on the top. You know it isn’t small if it takes four D size batteries. I intended to use AA size rechargeables with D size adapters to power this radio, but that didn’t work out; the battery compartment is too tight, and I could not stuff my batteries with adaptors into this space. I can now see why people who purchase this radio also order the rather costly D size rechargeable batteries. The AC adapter for this is an odd 7.5 Volt 1.6 Amp device that will be hard to find a replacement for if the original is lost or broken. The paper manual included is really pretty easy to read (unlike some other Chinese manuals), but is not as useful as it should be. This radio is shiny black, solidly built, all points of contact feel snug and secure, all the buttons snap sharply and smoothly, there are four nice grippy feet on the bottom, nothing cheap here.
The unit takes some time (about 30 seconds) to start up (I have mine set to disconnect from my WiFi when in Standby until I sort out my battery situation. Leaving it connected to your WiFi should shorten the startup time.). Connecting to my WiFi went well, run the Wizard, select your network, choose the characters for your WiFi password, and boom, you’re in. The steps in the manual do not exactly match the steps required on the radio, if you’ve done one like this before you will be fine, if not you may find it confusing. The tuning/selecting encoder suffers from the same problem most of these do; it doesn’t always keep up with the user, depending on what the unit’s processor is doing, it may be several seconds before the encoder recognizes that you are attempting to make a selection, and then it may jump ahead several steps. The operation is a bit of a learning curve, but if you have operated a WiFi radio before, this is pretty straightforward and intuitive.
The display is bright, colorful, beautiful, and informative. The display stays lit when the radio is on the ac power supply, and fades down after a few seconds of any input when on battery. The sound is really good for a radio this size. This radio has sound contour presets to help you find a sound you like and includes a custom setting so you can set your own sound profile. This has a separate line output (in addition to a headphone output) that easily powers externally amplified speakers, and it sounds good doing it. When listening to internet radio the “INFO” button will step the display through several sets of data.
This radio is immensely easy, and pleasant to use. The batteries charge while the power supply is connected to the radio. In the weeks I’ve had this radio, it has only lost a stream, twice. This is one of the nicest built, and most useful radios that I own.

5 out of 5 eggsSamgean Internet Radio

Pros: I can play any radio station in the US that streams online, plus foreign ones (my husband is from Asia, and he can listen to the station he listened to as a boy). The sound quality is really, really good. It is everything I thought it would be.

Cons: I bought D batteries to make the radio more portable. Big mistake. Blew through those in 3 days. I am thinking about getting rechargeables. Another con is that it only has 5 preset slots for AM. 10 would have been ideal. You have to go through many, many steps to reach a station if it isn't preset.

Other Thoughts: I would buy this radio again in a heartbeat because it is portable, has great sound and is cordless (once I buy rechargeable batteries).
