Ed, who worked at Proton many years ago, has been praising the Proton 300 for a long time. Thanks, CDT, for joining the conversation:
I just today received a proton 300 radio from an ebay purchase this past weekend. I am completely blown away, the audio is beyond any radio i have ever had the fortune of turning on. it has audio in/out audio for running other radios through it, but NPR sounds like they are sitting in my living room, and the AM band is equally brilliant, sports/talk sublime. Music is unparalelled.
I was skeptical of the reviews i'd read of "The Radio" as it was known at production, well im convinced. I don't think you can get a bigger sound w/ a smaller footprint. If you enjoy listening to all forms of radio on AM/FM, please pick one of these up, mine was under $130, and i will get the second speaker (301) even though as a stand alone it is , forgive the repetition, brilliant. It makes the bose wave look and feel like a walkman.
