Alarm clock digital radio
Posted 24 February 2012 - 12:57 PM
- AM/FM (AM as she's a fan of talkback radio on AM stations)
- alarm clock
- reasonable sound quality
- dimensions not too excessive as it has to sit on the bedside table
- possibly nice looking design
- price in the $70 to $200 bracket
Anyone feedback would be appreciated

Edit. We've got one of these Grundigs as an alarm clock. Sound is superb but it's a bit above your price bracket at $219 retail- i'm sure we never paid that much though. The early ones like ours that we bought 18 months ago had some shocking software that kept on doing odd things but that has all been sorted now so if you look for reviews on the net and they are all moaning (quite rightly) about the errors then those are not a concern now.

So there's one you can cross off your list.

Best thing in the market sub $200.
Has a Monday to Friday alarm, with an option to set a 7-day alarm if necessary.
Excellent reception and sound quality that is amazing considering it's compact dimensions.
Last, but not least.............simple to set up and use.
Highly Recommended !
PS: I only listen to AM, but transmitted digitally so can't comment on standard AM playback.
