Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Steve Lekuecher, who writes:
A technology forum friend recently noticed Universal Radio listed a new Sangean HD portable (HDR-14) on their website which is very similar in form to the Sangean DPR-65 and I was curious if you are considering reviewing it.
Thanks for the tip, Steve! Yes, I’ll certainly review the HDR-14!
I was unaware the HDR-14 was in the works, so I reached out to Sangean who supplied a little more detail.
It sounds, of course, like the HDR-14 will retail at a lower price than the larger HDR-16 (which is currently down to $99.99 shipped on Amazon).
I’ve been evaluating the HDR-16 this fall and have been favorably impressed overall.
I expect to post my review of the HDR-16 within the next two weeks.
Sangean plans to start shipping the HDR-14 mid to late January 2018. I’ll order it as soon as it’s on the market. I’m intrigued by the HDR-14 because of its size–very compact. I’m very curious, though, if it can match its larger brother (the HDR-16) in terms of sensitivity and overall performance. We’ll soon see.
Thanks again, Steve, for the tip!
