Although the sound from its 3W rectangular speaker, full-range, magnetically-shielded speaker is never going to compete with your home stereo system, or with more expensive and larger stereo radios, it delivers crisp clarity sound and range. Plenty of small speaker systems rattle and buzz as soon as you turn the volume more than halfway up. We cranked this little portable receiver to room-filling volumes without the slightest hint of a buzz and maintain a constant balance of high and low dynamic range.
