Thanks for the review, Val.


Thanks for the review Val- Looking to purchase one this week here in Spain to add to my collection of Sonys and Sangeans.


I purchased one in Portugal . Every thing about it is wrong. Turning, reception and sound quality are rubbish. Returned to U.K. For two months. On my next visit I attempted to listen once more before I trashed it.... just in case I was mistaken the first time around. Plugged it in switched it on......nothing. Attempted to reset time.....nothing. Unplugged and tried again following the simple set up instruction....nothing. Basically this radio is an expensive piece of rubbish.


Thanks for the heads up, Ian. A lot of Sony radios are dogs.

Not a patch on my previous SWs like ICF-SW100S or even my old (1970) Barlow Wadley XCR-30 (still going strong even in this area of poor reception in E Cape,RSA.


Just purchased this radio. It is a fair radio, yes it isn't as good as equivalent Sony radios past. A tone control would have been nice, so far tonally slightly thin but it is new so might need 100hrs to loosen up a little, bass too light as yet. Evenings will pick out plenty of mw and lw though this depends on your location. Listening from East Yorkshire, Rte radio lw fine and continental stations found. It is not a specialist radio, more for a bedside cabinet or the shed at the bottom of your garden.
