Immediate access to over 16,000 Internet stations, Search by country, genre and my favorite radios, Stereo Headphone socket, Play Music stored on your computer, Wooden cabinet and stereo speaker (WFR 1 WFR1)

With its full-range stereo speakers, high-gloss wooden case and low-key elegant design, the Sangean WFR-1 Wi-Fi/FM radio is the most impressive Internet radio I have seen. Its performance on the Internet "band" or as a LAN-connected music player is stellar. And yes, the radio sounds good when tuned to the Web.

But the WFR-1's FM tuning is possibly the worst I have encountered on a modern digital radio. Its nicely-weighted tuning dial tunes in 0.05 MHz steps, making roaming from one station to the next tedious and time-consuming. The fact that you can hear the audio "chuffing" in staticky bursts as you tune doesn't help. As for the remote control" Even though it has a 09 numeric pad, you cannot punch in FM frequencies directly. The only good news is that the remote will tune in 0.10 MHz steps, at a rate of 78 steps a second.


The WFR-1 is well-built, well thought-out piece of radio hardware. It has two 5 watt, 8 ohm speakers for stereo sound; jacks for Ethernet, USB input (from an iPod or other device), Line Out, Aux In and headphones; and the ability to connect to a wireless network (aided by a back-mounted, movable Wi-Fi antenna). Its remote control is full-sized and runs on two AAA batteries, making replacement easy. The controls essentially duplicate everything offered on the front panel. - See more at:

The monochrome LCD display (yellow lit letters on a dark background) is easy to read in all lighting. The front layout is logical, with buttons ("Band", Volume Up and Down, EQ) clearly labeled and accessible.

Unlike many Internet radios I have reviewed, the Sangean WFR-1 does not use the Reciva radio tuning system and Web site. Instead, its technology and the radio Web sites it accesses comes from the Frontier Silicon Radio Portal at

Like, the Frontier Silicon Radio portal provides constantly updated links to thousands of Web radio stations and podcasts for free, with the ability to accept new listings submitted by users. Unlike Reciva, you can only access the audio online if you buy a Frontier-enabled radio and enter in the access code stored in your WFR-1's memory. This is displayed to you on the receiver's LCD screen.

Despite the use of a non-Reciva system, the WFR-1's tuning approach is similar to Reciva-driven receivers like C. Crane's CC WiFi Radio or the Tangent Quattro. Using the tuning dial, which presses inward to make selections, plus a few keys on the front, you drill down through the WFR-1's menu. All of this functionality is duplicated on the remote control, which is easy to use.

For instance, you can choose Internet stations based on their Location or Genre. The WFR-1 also will let you connect to "Popular Stations" (based presumably on the tuning of other Frontier members), or add your own from the profile you've created at the Frontier Web site. The same approach is used to access podcasts or music files on other PCs on the LAN, using the WFR-1's Music Player mode.

On the FM side, the WFR-1 lets you tune using its tuning dial or remote control TUNE- or TUNE keys. Once you have found the station you want, you can add it to one of 10 presets. (The Internet radio can also accept 10 presets, accessible using the remote control.) The set comes with a back-mounted extendable FM whip antenna. RDS is provided.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.
