I see your points about the less than friendly user interface and ergonomics on the Kaito KA1103 / Degen DE1103 but with the latter now being offered on eBay out of China for $49 + $24 shipping/insurance, it's becoming easier to consider getting used to the quirkier UI since otherwise it's the same RF performance at less than half the price. I guess it all depends on your breaking point of where you're willing to compromise convenience for value.

The FM on the 1103 is great, but I never liked the AM sound.

I've moved away from small portables as AM doesn't sound good enough and there's a general compromise on sound. For $75, I'd rather have a Sangean PR-D5 or slightly used Eton S350 DL.

But the 1103's FM is stunning, just remember it's sensitive around computer interference.
