That does look like a pretty slick radio, it appeals to me because it looks both simple but high quality at the same time. Not sure I could justify paying $170 for it though, maybe if I ever see it on sale around $120 I might grab one if the reviews are solid.

I'm curious how the WR-12 compares with Sangean's own WR-3 in all the important qualities, audio quality which is admittedly subjective, AM/FM sensitivity & selectivity, ergonomics which is another subjective assessment*, build quality, and the most important quality for radio furniture, LOOKS.

* Regarding ergonomics here are some of the factors that work towards good ergonomics IMO, Are all controls accessible without having to use the remote? (Does the WR-12 have a remote?) Are all functions accessible without having to navigate a menu or other graphical user interface? GUI can be a bitch for the blind or visually impaired. (I am damn near blind.**) Do the knobs and buttons have a solid tactile feel? Are all labels in a legible font?
** I take it that "damn" is a perfectly OK word to use in public since Gov. Martinez used it at the 2012 Republican National Convention with a Mormon as the presidential candidate.


I think "damn" is okay. I haven't heard of a remote for the nonbluetooth version. For me, it's a style appeal. I doubt it performs better than the WR-3.


Where do you plug the guitar in, and does it go to 11?


This is nonsense! Does it cook an egg??
