Sony MDR-V4 Digital Dynamic Stereo Headphones Review

We’ve owned the Sony MDR-V4 Headphones for several years, and so, have played them with numerous CD players, iPads, mixing boards, headphone amps, and stereo receivers.

Sangean WFR-20 Digital WiFi Internet Radio Player Review

The Sangean WFR-20 WiFi internet radio player resembles a classic tabletop radio from the 1970s in terms of size.  However, it has fewer knobs than those old timers (only one knob, in fact), and plays with the voice of a full-sized hi-fi stereo music system.

AcuRite® Atomic Digital Alarm Clock 13131 Review

Back in 2010, We’ve purchased three copies of the tabletop AcuRite® Atomic Alarm Clock 13131.  Most impressive about this time piece is that it receives radio signals from the master atomic clocks in Colorado, and synchronizes itself most every night to those signals. So the time it displays is usually accurate to within one second … Continue reading AcuRite® Atomic Digital Alarm Clock 13131 Review
