it's a good radio with remote

solocanoe, Amazon
22 January 2014
  • Summary: I got a new office - needed another radio, but it HAD to have a remote so I can place the radio across the room by the window...and I can shut it off when the phone rings or a client comes in. Not sure WHY? it's so hard to find a radio with a remote anymore??? but after much searching I like this one well enough on Amazon and it was Prime too - hard to beat that. I like the digital tuning, but to be honest...I only have my one favorite Christian radio station on..

Good radio but remote doesn't work

Vince, Amazon
21 January 2014
  • Summary: I am very happy with the radio, but the remote never worked and Amazon expected me to return the whole thing to get the remote replaced. No can do! My wife "needs" the radio. It was my Christmas gift to her. I threw the old one out. If I have to send this one back and there is no substitute radio, I'm in trouble. . . big trouble. Please just let me return the remote and give me another one.

Just right

cherie, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a small compact radio that is perfect to keep in the kitchen. The sound quality is excellent. It doesn't have all the extra bells and whistles which I think makes it more reliable for what it does for a decent price.

Sorry - one star is too much

T. Moran, Amazon
18 December 2013
  • Summary: One star is the default for any rating and having said that I wanted to like this radio, but the power cord (not shown in the product photos) was attached to a HUGE, black and ugly converter plug , and the remote did not work - and that is how the unit is powered on! So back it went, and the good news is the AMAZON return process was worthy of FIVE STARS, no complaints there at ALL.

Great sound

Trixie, Amazon
18 December 2013
  • Summary: We purchased this radio because we were looking for one with no static. It is great has a good sound. It is a little complicated to tune in the stations and the remote never worked but we didn't really need it.

AM setting is miserable

C-Diddy, Amazon
8 December 2013
  • Summary: There are several things that disappointed me about this radio. Although the FM stations come through loud and clear, unfortunately the AM stations do not. I listen to talk radio on AM. The base is so strong you cannot understand what the host is saying. There are no adjustment knobs to fix the problem. Another problem for me is the brightness of the clock. It will dim one level but that level is still too bright for me. Would I recommend this radio? No.

Very good value for the money

M. Leopold "Radio maven", Amazon
2 September 2008
  • Summary: The Eton Sound 100 compares favorably with the higher priced small monaural FM radios available today. Its small footprint made it especially useful in my kitchen -- with its included remote I could put on top of a cabinet and save counter space. With its PLL circuitry and telescoping antenna it receives many distant FM stations with good clarity that other radios cannot. Its alternate channel selectivity is outstanding.

looks good works bad

SeeYa, Amazon
14 August 2008
  • Summary: Got the Silver one on a Friday Deal. It looks good. I turn it on and the volume refuses to stay at one level. It goes up or down sporadically. I set it up at work which is on the far end of the city so i can't receive most of the stations.

Plesent radio

K. O'Neill, Amazon
10 August 2008
  • Summary: Bought this radio back in April and placed it in the kitchen. We run it for hours at a time and it sounds just fine we like it. Remote is nice to have also. I cranked up the volume to see if will distort the sound and it did not. Some people would like to see bass and treble controls it would be nice but this unit is not competeing with high end stereo units as I said it sounds good. As for the light in the display at night it is somewhat bright.

I just returned mine.

truthteller, Amazon
8 August 2008
  • Summary: The AM reception was awful. I was replacing an old Sony Dream Machine, but the old Sony handled AM much better. So I must give it one star. Also, the backlight was glaringly bright.
