What experts liked
Even without the addition of its included external FM antenna, we were able to easily tune all but three of the 40 FM radio stations within listening range of Montgomery, AL, and though AM reception wasn’t quite as good via the internal antenna, we still locked into the most popular local AM stations with ease.
- The New York Times
Top-rated, retro radio for quality sound. Has great speaker volume for a tabletop radio. Good tuner performance and reception. Sleek wooden cabinet for a softer, less electronic look for the home. Aux port in back for device input. Easy to use, especially the tuning.
- BestReviews
Acoustic Cabinet technology provides high-quality sound
- Purdy Lounge
It’s not only incredibly simple to operate, with controls a child could understand, but it offers clear and dynamic sound quality.
- The Master Switch
These connections include a headphone jack, 3.5 mm auxiliary input and a Record-Out jack for connecting the radio to recording equipment.
- Gadget Review
LED indicator to indicate proper tuning
- Top Ten Products
The WR-11 also offers a 3.5mm headphone jack for private listening of your favorite radio programming.
- Buy Valuable Stuff
Option to play digital music through the speaker is a great feature for some
- Safer Senior Care
The reception is great with options for both an internal and external wire antenna, with reviewers commenting how this radio picks up AM stations not receivable by any other indoor-use radio.

What experts didn't like
When placed too close to a wall—within two or three inches—that bass became too boomy, especially when listening to talk radio.
- The New York Times
Bass is too heavy for some users. Broke for a few consumers after only a year of use.
- BestReviews
There’s no HD, no Wi-Fi, no Bluetooth.
- The Master Switch
Can’t be battery powered
- Gadget Review
The bass in the output is a bit high.
