The Sangean RCR-8WF lets you set an alarm to wake up to Internet radio and also has an FM/RDS tuner built in allowing you to be able to access any local FM stations with or without RDS provision. In addition it incorporates all of the advanced features found in other Sangean clock radios. Set your favorite 10 stations using the preset buttons or the "favorites" category on your radio. Any needed firmware upgrades are available through the Internet. Play your CD player or iPod through the Aux-In socket and connect your recorder or additional equipment to the Line Out sockets and if you need some extra sleep time, the sleep control and snooze timers provide that extra control. It plays all the popular digital music codecs such as MP3, AAC, WMA, Real Audio and others.
