ETON E5

Otis A. Hill "hilllo", Amazon
30 October 2014
  • Summary: Great receiver for its size. Great reception and great sound. Actualy like better than my 'super' 909. It actually pulls in signals better. If I was doing it over, I'd settle for this radio and be done. The dial is straight forward and very easy to use.

An Excellent High Quality Product

James Zelenka, Amazon
30 October 2014
  • Summary: This radio is all about feel, function, and form factor. General performance is about what you'd expect from a premium quality travel radio with a 3 inch speaker. Music is much better listened to through a good set of headphones, of course, and with a strong FM signal the results can be quite...

An OK radio. Just OK.

Mr. C. Saunders, Amazon
30 October 2014
  • Summary: This radio has lots of great features (with the notable exception of synchronous detection - reducing signal fade), but it sucks batteries dry very quickly. I would gladly live without a signal strength indicator or 700 memory locations, etc, for longer battery life.

Great Short Wave Radio!

Carl J. Lama Jr., Amazon
30 October 2014
  • Summary: I am very satisfied with the radio. It has good reception and sound quality. This is my first short wave radio with digital tuning and I am pleased with the fact that it stays on frequency without having to keep re-adjusting the tuning. It has a nice display and the controls are well laid out.

Great Radio...Accessories Stink

jr_Tech, Amazon
30 October 2014
  • Summary: This radio is very similar in performance to the cheaper Kaito 1103. Performance is OUTSTANDING, and several annoying attributes of the 1103 (such as the volume control ergonomics) have been designed out.

Eton E5 review

D. Hunsinger "deejaydoug", Amazon
30 October 2014
  • Summary: The Eton E5 is the best small portable for FM reception that I've ever seen. It's Broadcast band (AM) is quite good, as well. Shortwave reception is above average but could be improved. When connecting headphones, the FM stereo produced is quite good and the tone of the AM is very satisfactory.
