    Listening to the AAA game on the PL-880. Great spoken word sound.

    Small Portable Radio's?

    Using my PL-990 almost exclusively with a 32GB SDHC micro SD memory card and numerous CDs sneaker netted. Great sound - right up there with the PL-880 imho. To make it perfect, they should implement an text scroll (like the Sangean DT-800 FM RDS, without connecting online or on air) to ID the...

    Another side by side speaker only + reception comparison: Sony ICF-P26 vs Tecsun R-233 on the local oldies AM station. No contest - the Tecsun shines with better sound and it brings in the station more clearly. I did take the P26 to a ball game and it did very well with ear buds listening to the...

    Small Portable Radio's?

    Have been listening to a local AM oldies station using the speakers of a Sangean DT-400W and a Tecsun R-233, and the Tecsun wins out every time. A beautiful sound playing music. Like todderbert 2017 review says in the first video post comments below: true analog tuning is the only way to go...

    No interest in that. It may be a thing, but it's not my thing. Dusted off my Grado headphones (RS1, RS225, & RS80) and every one of the pads were deteriorating / falling apart and had to be thrown out. I still had a pair of yellow Sennheiser HD414 pads and they got put on the RS80s, and now are...

    Have been listening to my Sangean DT-400W and Retekess PR15 more lately and it's amazing how better the sound is on the PR15. Took the PR15 to listen to during my lunch break and the music sounded great. Substituted the DT-400W the next day and regretted the switch. You can't beat push button...

    AM is just fine the way it is. The one station that I regularly listen to (oldies) used to have an online presence to stream, or look up songs on their playlist, but recently has been oos. They still play the long version of American Pie.

    But since the PL-880 has a slightly better built-in speaker, it really can take advantage of FM radio audio fidelity when listening to music, for example. This is not to say that the PL-990 has crappy audio–far from the truth. Indeed, I was impressed with the audio when I first put the PL-990 on...

    I glanced through the initial assessment link ^ and did not see the mention of degraded audio performance. PL-880 equivalent audio playback of mp3s using Micro SDHC flash memory cards would be the only reason for me to purchase the PL-990. .

    It's a good portable (DT-400W). Hit any button in the dark to see the time. No need for the manual really as functions are intuitive - setting the clock, saving stations.

    I've got three of my portables at a certain room (I'm doing good when I make it there at least once a day!) where there are no sliding glass doors or windows - DT-400W, DT-800, and the CC Pocket. I always check the San Francisco AM 740 reception (around 429 miles away to the west) and listen...

    I love my RADIWOW R-108. Since I have a couple Tecsun ICR-110s, there is no shortage of BL-5C batteries and I still have and use the NOKIA charger I got off amazon. It's what I reach for when I'm cooking something and need to use the alarm so I won't burn whatever is in the oven. I like that you...

    Good choice. I always check mine to see if San Francisco is coming in at all in the morning.
