Sangean brand WR-22 kickass radio.

Have YOU seen this radio recently on a shelf in Toronto/GTA?
Want to sell YOURS? Please have a care and let me know!


I've fallen in Taiwanese with the radio maker Sangean. They're known for their shortwave radios and digital receivers but make a pretty sweet clock radio and an even better tabletop radio:

This one is the Sangean WR-22 that comes with all the bells and whistles. There are others — I know — but like I said, I've fallen.

I have contacted one distributor who can get this to me but AFTER the holidays. Blast!

Found the brand at Radioworld on Steeles. http://radioworld.ca/black-p-11050.html
It was like the coldest day to be wandering around there without a car but the team at RadioWorld swarmed me with some awesome service. They had received a shipment that that they were hoping would contain the above model. It didn't, but I had been clever enough to choose a portable model which they had already set aside before I got there. I even picked up a third model as an impulse buy before I left.

Pretty happy with this if anyone is reading this from the future. The PR-D5:

Great dynamic range (read bass) without sounding boxy or cotton-stuffed like a Bose. Reception is fantastic and it's profile is slim, aside from the power brick that comes along with it. A real treat.
