A Perfect Clock Radio


Oh what a radio! The Boston Acoustics Receptor Radio is in a class without peer because: the front left knob can be tuned to preset stations. Yes, preset stations are a common feature on both stereo and car radios but I challenge one to find it on a clock radio! And on a clock radio is where you need preset stations the most since you're probably listening in the dark, at night and, depending on how early you get up, in the morning. This radio presets both AM and FM stations, so no need to switch bands.

The second most remarkable thing is the sound quality and perfect reception. The sound is rich and deep in bass. Even after owning one for over a month, Im still surprised when I turn it on. Friends look around for the stereo in my room and when I saucily point to the clean white box beside my bed, they say, NO way!

I am not a morning person. Most days I am grumpy and angry, or depressed. But now I look forward to waking up, my radio faithfully kick starting me into a day. The sound is that pleasurable.
Comes in charcoal, platinum and white.

Get it at Amazon.

It does look like a very nice alarm radio, but does it have a snooze feature?


Thank you! Preset stations, in a non-ugly, non-super-shiny-macho-electronics clock radio. I've been looking for this for years.
