The RCR-8WF is the first WiFi radio that has all the ease of use and functionality of a good clock radio. It has a straight-forward button layout and a simple menu system. The LCD display is large enough to show the time and other icons while having station and song information displayed below. The "no-tip, no-slip" design is perfect for bedside use. A top-firing speaker produces good audio quality that is accurate when listening to talk radio but lacks good bass. You can boost the audio quality by hooking up your audio system to the line-output jack.

Two fully programmable alarms can wake you to either a "kind" buzzer or your favorite Internet or FM radio station. You can also set a Nap Timer from 10 to 90 minutes. If you enjoy falling asleep to radio, you can set the sleep timer to turn off the radio up to 3.25 hours. The pleasant, reverse LCD has seven levels of brightness.

The Sangean RCR-8WF can also play MP3 files that are stored on your PC or file server. Other notable features include: accurate internet time, external WiFi antenna for best reception, FM RDS, five presets, stereo headphone jack, and line-input jack. Uses Reciva technology. Weight: 1.7 lbs. Size: 7.6" W x 2.9" H x 6" D.

Poor quality sound - limited presets - no remote.Pete D

Had perfect results from this product for two years. Then it totally died. Sangean wants $50 to fix it. Wrestling with fixing it (and still having a 2 year-old radio) or spending more for a new one. Don't plan on having it last more than two years, though.

Received radio just before my lunch hour. Set it up in about 10 minutes, without reading the manual (I am a typical male I guess!). Very easy to connect to secure WiFi router, and pre-set favorite stations. Much easier setup than I was expecting. Using at home to overcome intermittent AM radio interference from neighboring condo units, and being wireless I can put it in any room throughout the day. I use another model Ethernet wired WiFi radio at work, also due to signal interference around computer equipment in my office. Chose to use an Internet radio on Bill Wattenburg recommendations years ago on his old radio show, which I miss. Not happy with new KGO format and program lineups. Listen to KNBR more often now. Thank you C Crane for all the great products I have purchased from you. Always quality stuff, and good customer service and web site.

  • This WiFi Antenna is hands down the best. It allows me to connect to a business almost a half mile away. Two months time and this baby paid for itself. I am a very happy with my purchase.
    — John A., Mill Valley, CA
  • This radio deserves five stars because it sounds great, the ease of use and preset stations. This radio will become your favorite radio, also backed by great customer service if ever needed, thank you very much.
    — Pete P., Santa Rosa, CA
  • This is an excellent internet radio. I have had the unit playing constantly from the time I received it. Excellent sound for such a small unit and the remote works wonderfully.
    — James H., Richmond, BC
  • Good sound, lightweight and comfortable; not too tight on the head. I like one feature; it doesn't tell you where to place the speakers, left side or right side.
    — Harry W., Manassas, VA
  • I purchase this product specifically for AM recordings and it has worked superbly. I wanted to wait awhile before I gave my opinion on the product. It has worded exactly as advertised and more.
    — Jack L., San Pedro, CA
  • Very nice, economical home lighting. If you're used to the white light of fluorescent bulb replacements, these will offer the same type with no toxic ingredients or damaging UV radiation.
    — Gary B., San Francisco, CA
  • This antenna does work well; however placement and the shape you have it bent into is very important. I live about 70 miles away from Toronto and receive a lot of Toronto FM stations static free with the FM reflect.
    — Thomas S., Buffalo, NY
  • I'm not sure how I gone this far in life without it. I just love it. The best sound ever from an AM radio.
    — James G., Springfield, MA
  • This device is awesome. As a contractor, I can not access my customer's network for security reasons. Now, with my office on the second floor, I can connect to a WiFi hotspot 1.5 miles away and my signal strength is strong!
    — Robert S., Tabernacle, NJ
  • I just received my EP radio yesterday. I'm totally impressed with the old school simplicity and the modern day sound quality. Thank you, C.Crane!
    — David C., Raleigh, NC
  • I have had only one, thank the lord, occasion to use this in and emergency situation and it worked flawlessly. Only one in the area with radio for two days of power loss... Thank you CCrane!!
    — Vernon P., Dufur, OR
  • This radio is totally fantastic!!! It will provide service in any condition and works as engineered and advertised. I am going to order more units for all family members.
    — Glen B., Bethlehem, PA
  • This radio is wonderful. Small but powerful. Several years of service and no problems.
    — William B., Litchfield, IL
  • Just received this little jewel... did not open the manual and I was listening to NPR within minutes... no kidding. I'm a radio guy and the audio is great and look forward to a lot of great listening.
