In case you feel like neither WR-1 or the WR-2 from Sangean's line of high-end tabletop radios could fulfill your needs as far as the music integration in your home is concerned, maybe the WR-3 will: we're talking about the top-notch model in the WR series, loaded with a heap of serious technology, digital enhancements and leaving aside any retro design. Built for the discerning music listener who is looking for a neat, integrated solution, the Sangean WR-3 can easily match with any decor, whether you will put it in your bedroom or kitchen at work, in your stylish and elegant office.
The Sangean WR-3 drops the retro look and at the same time drops the exquisite wooden casing, making room for a new design, with stereo speakers and cloth grilles, slot-loading CD player and a large central all-purpose dial knob to let you navigate menus and set up the device. The dynamic bass compensation helps for a serious, powerful LF representation, ensuring a rich and undistorted bass at both high and low volumes.
On the dark frontplate, the Sangean WR-3 sports a large LCD screen with great readability and the rotary dial for accessing the multiple functions and menus; unlike the analog WR-1 version, this radio comes with 20 presets and other refined functions like automatic time set, alarm with snooze, and system sleep timer. External antennae can be hooked up for both wavebands and you also get a switch to set internal/aerial antenna.
The Sangean WR-3 comes with dual powerful 3-inch 8W high-fidelity drivers and 3D effect for a hefty sound field and sports REC out and headphones out sockets; even more, it has an Aux-In socket to accommodate your MP3 player and an SD card slot for enhancing the versatility with yet another data recording medium. The Sangean WR-3 retails for $265 in web outlets.
