KCAL news just ran a tease about there being a medical connection between hearing and cravings...seems like that's our problem, whatever it is.

People with good hearing have intense cravings? Or rather people who hear a high volume of content get big cravings?

Yeah, the 350DL is hard to resist. Its big with lots of knobs and that cool blue
backlight. And its only a hundred bucks. Its a wonder we all dont have one already.
I myself am currently fighting a reacurring craving for a G5.
I already have too many radios so this is not based on anything rational.
RadioIntel sure as hell doesn't help with its constant reviews ( many Im sure written by the similarly afflicted). It can only be considered an ENABLER.

I still find myself wanting the Eton S350DL,though I enjoy my Kaito 2100 as much as ever.

Fortunately, I can't think of where I would listen to it. The Kaito 2100 is my companion when I'm working on the computer at home, and I just bring it into the kitchen when I'm cooking, or down to the basement when I'm doing laundry.

I suppose I could keep the Eton 350 in the kitchen, but so far I've resisted the urge to buy it just for that purpose.

I just bought a Sony ICF36 for the bathroom.
Somebody stop me.

The owner of a Kaito 2100, Ed came over and listened to my C.Crane CSW, a supposed clone. He and I agree that the 2100 has a much better speaker sound. You won't notice this difference with talk but with music the CSW sounds muffled and harsh whereas the 2100 sounds fine.

To make matters worse, I once had the 2100 but it went on the fritz and I had to return it and replace it with the inferior CSW.

yeah, i just "won" a grundig 960 on ebay... i guess its a reproduction of an old radio. with bad reviews and has been discontinued. tell me why i bid on that again? i guess cause i thought i was getting a "deal"...

jeffrey McMahon

If the 960 performs well, let me know.

Checkout the new analog Sangean radio: http://www.sangean.com/product.php?model=WR-11&prod_id=57

I like those Grundig classic reproductions! Not the real thing of course, but for the price it's good sounding and attractive. In fact, I resold two of them at a nice profit on Amazon to buyers who are nostalgic former owners of the real thing I beleive.

Ed S.

Wow Tom, that Sangean looks like a direct challenge to the Tivoli. I like it, I like it!

Ed S.

Also see that Sangean has a 2nd-generation HD tuner--

God we are like alcholics at a meeting reading a bar menu.

God , we are like drunks at an AA meeting reading a bar menu.

Tom, that Sangean WR-11 looks very attractive even though it lacks a telescopic antenna.

I imagine its FM is as strong as the WR-2, but wonder about the AM. That would be something if it was the same ferrite antenna as the PR-D5.
