About the Boston Acoustics Recepter Radio
Your nightstand has been waiting for a clock radio that looks and sounds this good. The Recepter Radio from the audio experts at Boston Acoustics combines a sleek design with clear AM and FM sound. The secret to its performance lies in the Boston-designed wide-range driver that's optimized specifically for radio. Teamed with an amplifier that uses Boston BassTrac® circuitry, the Recepter Radio digs deep into the low frequencies for smooth, natural response and spacious sound that belies the unit's small size. Plus, the AM/FM tuner is highly sensitive for clear, distortion-free reception. Just spin the front-panel tuning knob to roll through the stations, or use the 20 presets to go directly to your favorites.
You'll appreciate the classy, no-frills look of the Recepter Radio. The minimalist front panel makes it easy to operate the radio and clock functions. You get dual independent wake-up alarms (handy for working couples) set either alarm to music, buzzer, or both. The adjustable snooze lets you catch extra shut-eye when you need it. Plus, there's a sleep timer that allows the radio to play up to 60 minutes before turning off automatically.

More details on the Boston Acoustics Recepter Radio
Tuner: The Boston Acoustics Recepter radio has a highly sensitive AM/FM digital tuner. It can pull in weak FM stations while its high selectivity allows it to separate closely-spaced stations clearly. The tuning knob makes it easy to manually tune to your favorite stations.
Presets: The Recepter radio features 20 station presets for your favorite AM and FM stations. Once you set the preset stations, you can quickly tune only the preset stations with a turn of the tuning knob.
Antenna Inputs: This unit is equipped with a built-in AM antenna and an attached 4' FM wire antenna. You can unplug either antenna if you wish to connect an optional external antenna to the AM spring-clip antenna input or the threaded FM coax antenna input.
Speaker/Amplifier: The Recepter features a wide-range driver, specifically designed for this radio, with a rear-firing port to enhance the bass output. This high-performance speaker is coupled with an actively-equalized amplifier that uses Boston BassTrac circuitry for full, satisfying sound, even at low volume. The result is a unit that delivers smooth, natural response and room-filling sound despite its small size.
Display: The unit's large easy-to-read display clearly shows the station, clock, and alarm/sleep status. If desired, the display can be dimmed. Display dimensions: 2-1/2" wide, 1" high.
Auxiliary Input: The Recepter features a rear panel, 3.5mm minijack input for connecting an external audio source to the unit such as your portable MP3 player via an optional 3.5mm stereo minijack cable.
Dual Alarms: The radio features two independent wake-up alarms which can be set to music, buzzer, or both. When the alarm sounds, the snooze function will silence the alarm for 10 minutes. If you push the snooze button again within 3 seconds, you can add another 5 minutes to the snooze time, up to a maximum of 60 minutes.
Sleep Timer: You can set the unit's sleep timer to play the radio for a preset amount of time, then shut itself off. The sleep timer can be set for 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 or 60 minutes.
Memory Backup: The Recepter is equipped with a Super Capacitor to preserve radio presets, clock and alarm settings in the event of a power interruption (no batteries required).
