Editor's Notes

January 16, 2019:

Included the Sangean RCR-20 for its simple profile, compact size, and powerful audio output. Its convenient battery backup feature also allows it to continue working in case the power goes out. I thought the IHome IBT29 was a particularly colorful option, while the built-in mic and speaker makes it easy to take calls without having to hold onto one's mobile phone. Both the Brandstand CubieBlue and Yostyle Station have small footprints and are also equipped with USB ports and power outlets for superior connectivity. Also added the ILuv Morning Call due to its Qi wireless technology and extra-large LED readout. Also included the Smartro Digital and Electrohome USB for their innovative projection capabilities. Finally, the Magnasonic CR63 was worthy of inclusion, thanks to the adaptive design of its internal brightness sensor to adjust to surrounding light conditions.
