The radio just sits there and smiles

  • Excerpt: It has every feature I wanted in a radio except record but no big deal it has an easy to use output to hook up a recording device. This camera replaces an X and is so much better that I finally discarded the X and kept this voice with a smile.
  • Pros: Durable, Good Sound Quality, Great Reception, Lightweight, Long Battery Life

Great little portable radio

  • Excerpt: I use the radio to take news and baseball with me around the house, garage, and patio. The Sony ICF-SW7600GR meets my needs completely. FM and AM reception is good anywhere, which isn't the case with other portables I've used.

"Solid Radio"

  • Excerpt: I bought this to listen to during the work day (work at home). The box seemed a little heavy and when I pulled the radio out, it was extremely compact and built well (solid). The antenna is somewhat big for it's size - the radio is 5 inches tall and the antenna is another 35 inches long. I don't extend it all the way. You have to place it where you won't brush against it. I hooked up a pair of headphones and was extremely pleased with what I heard.

Happy I bought it!

  • Excerpt: Good sound and reception. The user guide with all the SW stations is very useful too. Fairly tall antenna for good reception, it also comes with a super flexible am antenna that you can roll back into it's case. Compact enough for travel. No batteries no dc transformer/adapter supplied (needs 4 AA batteries or a standard 6V plugin adapter) . A very good price quality ratio overall.

A must have for emergency preparedness

  • Excerpt: I got the ICF-SW7600GR Sony World Band Receiver to keep informed in the event of a SHTF scenario. Frequencies have been assigned for that purpose and can be found on the internet. This radio allows me to listen to SSB ham bands an important feature not found on many radios. I've had a Sony ICF-SW7600 bought in '93 that finally gave up the ghost. Shortwave is not just a turn it on to a station and listen.

Excellent radio

  • Excerpt: Purchased the IC-SW7600GR: a great radio with good sensitivity, synchronous detection on SW bands. The unit has good selectivity on FM as well as decent audio considering its size. The radio is a good performer on FM and SW bands overall. My purchase from B&H is to replace the old model, ICF-SW7600G (old model, which has a few dents after 14 years of use. This radio is highly recommended, as is B&H with prompt delivery and excellent customer service.

Excellent Radio

  • Excerpt: For many years I had Sony ICF-2001 radio and it had served me very well. Unfortunately leaking batteries destroyed the radio. I wanted to replace it with a radio that is just as good or better and I have chosen this Sony ICF-SW7600GR. Although this radio is smaller and thinner, which affects the sound quality, the SW performance is just as impressive. I also have a Yaesu FT-900 communication receiver/transmitter so I can compare the performance against the best!
  • Pros: Durable, Great Reception, Long Battery Life
  • Cons: Poor Sound Quality

Smart Purchase

  • Excerpt: I listen to this radio at night before I go to bed. It receives local and distant stations on FM and a lot of SW and AM stations as well. It is loaded with all kinds of features for listening to SW/MW/LW radio signals. I really like the sleep timer feature and all the preset pages for storing radio stations. It is a well designed radio and easy to listen to. I haven't found anything I didn't like about this radio.

World news with no filter

6 October 2014
  • Excerpt: Bought this radio to replace my old SONY ICF-2001D, which I had to send to retirement. SW is a habit acquired many years ago: listen to world News in their original version (unfiltered). Must mention the improvement in the attenuator control, basic in a world of permanently increasig statics.
  • Pros: Good Sound Quality, Great Reception, Lightweight
