From Amazon Review. This reviewer has no other reviews. I do hope it's legit:
I emailed Sangean and they sent the following reply.
I understand that the first batch of WR-12 radio's had issues. If I purchase a WR-12 from Amazon today will I receive "the new and improved WR-12
" that you reference in your comments post on Amazon reviews?
Hello all. This is Bob from Sangean America Inc.
I'm happy to inform you that we are now shipping the new and improved WR-12.
It now passes Sangean's stringent quality control. The FM tuning and audio problem found in earlier WR-12's has been corrected.
If you would like to swap your original unit with the new WR-12, you may return it to Amazon.com, or contact us. Please accept our apology for any inconvenience this may have caused you, and many thanks to our loyal customers.
Thank you for your interest in the WR-12.
Yes, all the units sold by Amazon are now the new and improved units.

My unit seems to function fine. The sound is clear and the radio locks stations in as it should. I have the WR-2 and WR-11. So far I like the WR-12 out of the bunch.
