I had wondered if was it close to to a BAR?
Got to say the guts don't look too impressive but I guess the sum is greater than its parts.

Japanese parts inside (Toshiba microchips), Chinese labor.

That was a good idea to include the picture of the inside of set. It does make the $99 price seem high; what could the cost of production on that radio have been?

The Chinese crank out inexpensive toys with more electronics in them nowadays.

I could be wrong, but this radio appears to be only available in Canada. It's not on Amazon.

'Electrohome' is an old Canadian name that got bought on the cheap in its latter days, as happened with 'Bell & Howell' here in the states.

I suspect the Sangean utility radio is comparable.

Been looking for a table radio for years. I opened the box at CTC just out of curiosity with little hope of finding something more than the gammut of cheap crap radios the shelves are full of. Looked good! Sounded good at home, with better AM reception than most my radios and as good as my $500 Sony. Much better than the BOSCH $229 workshop radio which I tried and was ready to buy from Amazon. Outstanding styling, color and cabinet texture! Heavy duty wire and 3prong plug. Handle on top for moving around, very solid construction! Can even be used with batteries. Big con is no earphone jack or input, I guess you can't have everything. I love this thing, had it for 3 months and just bought a second one. This little "Lunch Box" is a best kept secret. Peter K.
