I used to have the gold version as shown but it broke down after a lot of use, so I replaced it with the blue version which still works currently, I think this allso looks better than that gold, but I guess thats down to personal choice. The radio is overall of a good quailty and has reasonable sound with a DBB deep bass boost system, selecting to mono reduces the hiss on weaker fm broadcasts, reception is pretty good for this type of radio, it is generally less prone to overload than others which I have tryed, sensitivity is noting exciting but this is to be expected with this type of radio. The R 972 runs off 2 AAA batteries, which do last for a good period of time, its easy enought to carry spares around with you thought.
