With respect to the Sangean PR-D7 speaker: I called CCrane last week and asked them to measure the speaker and indeed the speaker is 2 and half inches wide.

Cyril

Thanks -- I had completely missed that, especially since the manual says "Circuit Feature Loudspeaker: 3 inches , 8 ohm". Other sources also mention 2.5in so I guess there is 3 inch and 3 inch.

Tom Welch

Cyril, the manual is wrong, probably b/c it was basically a rewrite of the PR-D4/Sonido radio manual. BTW, I ordered the PR-D7 today from Amazon and will have the radio by tomorrow afternoon, hopefully.

Tom, I hope you write a review that I can post. Also what motivated you to get it over the PR-D5?

I have cancer, so I prefer a smaller radio in case I go into the hospital. I like the AA battery charging capability. Also, if my health holds up, I'm planning a trip to the South Bay area and would take the PR-D7 as a travel radio.

I'll email you when that happens!

Tom, more than anything keep me apprised of your health as that's all that counts. I don't know what stage cancer you're fighting. My officemate just had a malignant mole taken from his ankle and he had stage 2 cancer requiring the removal of his lymph node. He seems okay for now. My cousin is currently fighting 3 types of cancer at the same time and she's gone vegan in the hopes of fighting it though I don't know if being a vegan makes a difference.

Bests, Jeff

Tom, if you mean you'll visit the South Bay in Southern Cal, let me know and we should get together.

jeffrey McMahon

Tom, for some reason I thought San Francisco, but it you're in Redondo or Torrance, let me know. Maybe all 3 of us can meet. Jeff

I have prostate cancer, next to last stage, appears to be under control. I will email you Jeff when I leave Mesa, AZ for your area.

jeffrey McMahon

Okay, Tom, I'll be back from Vegas on August 11. Jeff

Cyril

Tom, sorry to learn about your illness, and best wishes.
Btw I have no doubt you are correct. The PR-D7 speaker just looks too much like one of the PR-D5's speakers. The reason for them insisting on 3" in the manual could also have to do with some "creative measuring". If you add a 1/4 inch rim around a 2.5" speaker, does it make it a 3"? ;-)
