We would like to begin with the actual Sanegan WR-11 radio review. In this section of the article, we will be talking about the radio’s performance, design, features, and other specifications.
We have picked this radio for testing because we thought that it looked really cool and vintage and that it will give us that retro sound that we have been seeking, and we were totally right.
This radio has definitely a different kind of design from all of the other radios that we have reviewed so far. Namely, the outside of this radio is made of wood it is actually a walnut wooden cabinet. The left half of the radio is being occupied by a bass speaker, and the right half is occupied by buttons and an LCD display with a backlight.
This radio has a total number of three buttons. One is for analog tuning, and the other two are for adjusting the sound that the radio produces.
We could say that this radio is a middle-sized radio that is around 10 inches wide, and it weighs around 0.5oz. In other words, this radio is pretty heavy, and therefore, it is not meant to be carried around all the time.
This radio contains a 3 inches full-range speaker with an Enlarged magnet, and we can say that it looks pretty classy.
Performance and specifications
This Sangean wooden cabinet receiver radio is actually an FM and AM analog radio. It does not tune automatically and you have to do all of the work by hand. We think that this is pretty great since the radio gives us retro vibes. The tuning is soft and precise and not that hard.
This radio is able to catch both FM and AM radio signals. The frequency for FM signals that this radio can catch is between 87.5 and 108MHz. While, on the other hand, the frequency for AM channels is between 570 and 1710kHZ.
What is interesting is that this radio actually has both EUR and USA AC power supply, which enables super easy charging and you do not have to worry about different power inputs.
As we have already mentioned, this Sanegan WR-11 radio has one speaker with deep bass compensation. The sound it produces is really clear and light.
As we have said before, this radio will work only when It is directly connected to the power source. It does not have any kind of spare batteries built in it, and will only work when it is connected via an AC cable cord to a power source.
Other, additional features
This radio does not have that kind of important additional features. We would like to point out that it does have a 3.5mm standard headphone jack if you would like to have a private listening session. Besides that, this radio has DC-in, Aux-in, and AC-in jacks as well. And, it contains an FM F type terminal antenna too.

If you decide to buy this radio, you will be receiving all of the necessary components with it in the box; including an AC cable cord and the user manual. The user manual is able to help you set up your radio and tune it. You will see that the user manual contains all of the necessary information that you need to know about this radio, as well as the safety instructions, and how to handle your radio properly.
We believe that one of the most important things, whenever you are buying some electronic device, is the warranty; and Snagean company thinks so too because it offers a three-year warranty to all of the buyers that order their radio off from Amazon.
