Summary: So far very impressed with the features and performance of this radio. It is replacing a 22 year old Sony ICF-2010, which was considered to be one of the better portable radios ever made. Only slight negative thing to say is that the manual could be better.

Summary: I am a amateur radio operator and short wave listener. Performance is expected for a mobile multiband receiver. It will probably perform beyond expectations on a long wire antenna or a tower antenna.
Summary: I read most all the reviews of this radio before buying it a little over a month ago, and didn't really know what to expect. I was fairly certain SW reception would be non existent on the whip antenna, and gave it about a 50/50 chance of being a keeper.
Summary: This is the first new radio I've purchased in... say 20 years. I was hesitant, at first to buy it since I'd seen so many positive reviews for the Tecsun 660. So I rolled the dice and got this set. My previous boxes were a Dx 120, DX-160 and a R/S DX-390 which I love.

Summary: Not very loud on SSB reception... Using an external antenna, it receives USB\LSB SSB nicely. But after making comparisons with this radio and my Sangean 803a and Degen 1103, I have to say they this radio does not receive them as well On AM/FM/SW it is nice and gives good signal strength and loud...
Summary: This is a good radio, but not quite as good as initial acclaim would have it. I have seen some reviews which tout the sound as being full and pleasant to listen to. I have not found that to be so. In fact I note that signal peaks on SW tend to lead to distortion.
