What customers say about "Key Specs"
Tecsun S-2000 SHORTWAVE Radio Dual Conversion PLL FM MW SW LW SSB Air Band
  • I love this radio. It performs fantastic on all bands. Sound is great.
  • This is my FAVORITE Shortwave Radio! This radio has the BEST reception with just it's built in collapsible antenna.
  • This is an outstanding FM radio whether using the included speaker or stereo headphones.
  • This is a dynamite AM radio. The S-2000 has an excellent built-in antenna.
  • Excellent radio BUT you must be extremely careful with the whip antenna! If you turn it the "wrong" way it may snap off as my radio.
Grundig Satellit 750 Ultimate
  • FM performance is outstanding. Will pick up weak FM stations.
  • The AM(MW) and FM bands sound good. I was able to do some MW DXing with the radio's rotating built-in AM antenna.
  • The FM band works awesome. I tuned in tons of stations with just the whip antenna. I'm not sure I even need an FM antenna after logging in over 30 stations but probably will anyway.
  • The FM and AM bands are excellent, and scrubbing through the longwave band can sometimes yield surprising late night contacts.
  • This radio is crazy good on picking up AM and FM stations, much better than any other radio I own.

Grundig Satellit 750 Ultimate
  • This is a very good looking radio. The size and looks of the radio is great.
  • I like the size and bulk of the 750. It is a genuine table radio and not a portable.
  • The 750 has a great size and feel for a portable RX only rig.
  • I like the size and appearance. The profile, ergonomics, fit and finish are all good.

What customers say about "Power"
Tecsun S-2000 SHORTWAVE Radio Dual Conversion PLL FM MW SW LW SSB Air Band
  • I only use it with batteries I'm in the us and dont have a 220v outlet to plug into. The batteries last me several days and this radio is on about 8 hours a day.
  • Well built. I like the option of rechargeable or standard batteries.
  • Very nice radio. Works very well. I love that you can use rechargeable batteries in the unit and with the radio plugged in to the electrical outlet it will charge the batteries.
  • The only feature I liked was that it charged the batteries when plugged in.
  • It only stays on for about 15 seconds when running on battery.
Grundig Satellit 750 Ultimate
  • The batteries hold up pretty well and I was afraid this large of radio would drain them but I am pleased with how long they last.
  • Batteries last forever. FM and AM are very good.
  • Nice radio. Some of the front knobs are a bit flimsy. Good battery life.
  • The battery life is great I have bin using the radio quite a lot and the battery gauge is still reading full battery.
  • Sound sounded pathetic and the batteries went flat at a alarming rate.
