Not sure if I have the right forum or not.
My wife is battling cancer and during chemo simply has to rest a lot. In bed she likes to listen to am/talk radio and occasional easy listening and she would like to listen to audio books. She does not care about stereo and she hates technology. Every night when I settle her in her bedside clock radio will basically pick up 1 am station and it sounds like crap. I set out on a quest to find the perfect unit.
1. I purchased the Grace Digital Mondo and had it programmed but it's wifi was horrible, good in our den but cuts out in the bedroom. In addition there is a inherent flaw in the alarm software. I returned it.
2. I bought the Sangean WR2, this was the best radio I have ever seen or used, period. For her too complicated, hated the display light and was too heavy to move around. I sent it back.
3. I purchased the C.Crane Radio EP and thought it was going to work but could get almost nothing on it, very disappointing after reading reviews. It goes back today.
Anyone have any suggestions? She does not need an alarm, likes her old clock for that. My last thought was I have an original T-amp and an old ACI emearld speaker. Would it hurt the T-Amp to stay on all the time and use one side for mono? I could then hook an old smartphone to it for I-Hart and books.
