Thought you had to pay a premium price for a good performing radio
right? Wrong! the Sangean PRD4W is the biggest performance bang in AM/FM
Weather Disaster radios I've encountered for under $100, this set sells
for $70 in the U.S.
So what can one expect from the PRD4W? Spectacular AM and FM
performance, with weather band.
The AM performance comes extremely close to the legendary CC 2E radio,
there's very little difference between them when it comes to selectivity
and sensitivity on the AM and FM bands.
Its at this point that the Sangean PRDw truly begins to shine with its
range of 6 settings of band filter for the AM band, set the filter to
the widest and enjoy near FM quality sound on your local AM stations or
lower the filter settings to home in on those weaker stations you love.
The PRD4W has a "Signal tracking" feature, tune the radio to a station
and listen as the radio adjusts itself for the best signal reception
possible of that station.
The radio has two FM and two AM bands, you could for example set the
presets - 5 - on one AM band for distant stations whilst setting the
presets on the other AM band - again 5 - for local stations.
The radio doesn't have a tone control however you can effectively use
the band width filter on AM to accomplish the same thing.
Build is rugged out of hard ABS plastic.
