Thanks for the review - your description makes these new Sonys an intriguing option. I prefer mono for difficult listening conditions like on public transit. I don't need to carry a speaker - I always use headphones. So this wouldn't replace my SRF S84, which is ultra light and has high quality sound for the size.

The designers of this Sony ICF-306 should have thought about making the volume knob on the side a tuning knob and the tuning dial on top a volume control instead. I don't understand why they would flop with that decision and because of that, I would not buy one. I can't stand using radios that don't have a true tuning knob. It's a nice looking radio though.

I have all three of these new SONY models and also am impressed how clean and clear the audio is from mid range up. Of course there is no way to produce deep bass in these size radios. I don't think of them as DXers either, but very good battery life and very pleasant sound for radios in these small sizes. I also prefer not to try for FM stereo and like that both sides of the head phones operate. Coupled to a loop they DX pretty well too.

I bought both Sony ICF-306 and ICF-P26 when I was traveled in Hong Kong. It has excellent reception. Since the place bought was in two floors down in the basement, the store owner was able do a sound test on the ICF-306 for me. The sound was lovely both on FM and AM even with the low volume setting. I love the simplistic boxy appearance. Now I have in my home, it will bring me joy for years to come.
