Sangean PR-D18BK AM/FM/Portable Digital Radio

This product was recommended by Andrew Forrester from My Audio Planet

The Sangean PR-D18 is absolutely perfect as a home office radio. Its compact size (only 6.5 inches wide and 4.2 inches tall) means that it won’t take up much space on your desk or shelf space and I’m sure that one of the 4 choices of color combinations(gray/black, white/blue, white/gray or white/red) will go very well with your home office décor.

This is an AM/FM radio and it boasts lots of great features such as digital tuning, a back-lit LCD display and an alarm clock with dual alarm and snooze (just in case you feel like having a quick nap in the office!) What makes this radio so easy to use is the auto-seek function which will automatically scan all active stations across the whole band. This will save you so much time. You don’t want to waste time doing that manually when you’re supposed to be working! Finally you can save your favorite stations in one of the 10 station presets. If you want to listen to this radio privately, you can plughead phones or an earpiece into the headphone jack. This automatically disables the speaker when headphones are plugged in. That’s very handy if you share your office with someone else who doesn’t want to listen to the radio.
