For some radios, portability and versatility is key. The Avantree SP850 checks both of those boxes as a contender as the best tabletop radio when it comes to one that fits in your pocket and can be used in different ways.\r\n\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Avantree SP850 Review\r\nThe Avantree SP850 is a high quality, portable FM radio with some great added functionality. It may look like a transistor radio, but it doubles as a bluetooth speaker, so you can listen to your favorite music \u2014 or FM radio \u2014 anywhere.\r\n\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nThe Avantree SP850 performs in all the ways you want it to: it\u2019s ultra portable, gets FM reception, and has good sound for a small radio. It outperforms by also working as a portable bluetooth speaker. You can easily switch between radio mode and using it as a wireless speaker for pretty much any device that can connect via bluetooth. For radio, it has an auto scan function to easily find your favorite stations and save them as well.\r\nDesign\r\nThe SP850 Portable FM Radio succeeds in its design to be much more than a radio. Even its pocket size emits quality sound. In fact, the radio has six equalizer modes to tailor the sound to the type of music you\u2019re listening to.\r\n\r\nIt\u2019s conveniently powered by a rechargeable battery, which makes it easy to take on the go. It also has inputs for a USB cable, micro USB, Micro SD card, and an SD card player (just put the radio into SD card mode).\r\nValue\r\nBluetooth speakers don\u2019t usually have radio and SD card functionality, so if you want those features, this is a great option. The sound quality won\u2019t blow you away, but at the same time, the ones that do won\u2019t fit in your pocket (looking at you, Soundance SDY019). This is more comparable to the Panasonic RF-2400D, which doesn\u2019t have bluetooth and won\u2019t fit in your pocket. For the price, you should definitely tune in.\r\nAvantree SP850 Review Wrap Up\r\nThis Avantree has something for everyone. It\u2019s a great family radio to take to the park, camping, or even the backyard. The fact that it fits in your pocket is more useful than you expect, and the radio overall has a quality build and good sound. While it isn\u2019t the best for a full Mozart symphony (let\u2019s leave that to the Sangean WR-11 Wood Cabinet radio), it\u2019s a great portable radio and speaker all in one small device.
