Sangean WR 11SE Table Radio, 40th Anniversary Edition
All the vintage lovers out there will appreciate this stylish Sangean tabletop radio, released as the brand’s 40th anniversary edition. We love that it’s got less of a gadget vibe than everything else on this list, and instead harkens back to older generations where we had the radio instead of Spotify. However, although the look is old-school, the sound quality definitely is not, and it features an aux-in cord for your phone.
