    The quality of this unit is exceptional. The dials and buttons all work smoothly. I purchased this radio specifically for the shortwave functions. This model can pick up continous shortwave coverage through all bands including single side band (ham radio) and CB. This is the only small portable with synchronous detection which reduces fading on shortwave and AM bands. If you like talk radio, ham radio, and shortwave broadcasts then this is the radio for you. FM on this radio is ok but the single speaker was not made for high fidelity sound although there is stereo through the use of headphones. This is one of the few Sony products that is still made in Japan and you can tell immediately the heft and quality of the unit when holding it. Nice job Sony!

    Can you make it more painful to use this thing?

    I bought this radio because I wanted world band reception. So far (1 week) I haven't been successful in receiving any stations, including any local AM stations. FM seems to work fine. One cautionary note about this radio is it's absurdly complex, archaic, and illogical controls. I predict it will inhibit usage because I won't remember all the complexities. There is no straight forward way to dial stations as you might with a traditional turn knob. You have to press several buttons just to get to tune in a channel or even to scan. Some buttons have dual functions, so you have to remember what mode you are in. If you're not quick enough to press the next button, the function is cancelled. This radio reminds of the half-baked, user unfriendly automotive controls via a touch screen which make it painful to get some basic tasks accomplished.

    Phenominal Radio!!!

    By dba22

    from Saginaw, MI

    Comments about Sony Worldman Radio:

    As a long time amateur radio operator, I've used receivers and transceivers costing literally 30 times as much as the ICF-SW7600GR. To put it mildly, I am VERY impressed with this little gem!!! It easily picks up SSB and CW signals on all of the low bands with just the whip antenna and is stable as a rock too. Contrary to other comments, the fidelity is also excellent even with just the internal speaker and with head phones, it's full spectrum. No ham or even casual SWL'er should be without one of these amazing little, go any where receivers!!! An AC adapter for what is intended to be a portable receiver makes zero sense which is likely the reason why one isn't provided.

    Amazing Product for Size

    By Bazil

    from Toronto

    Pros

    • Small Size, Range - Qty of output

    Cons

    • Capabilities require that you hold onto manual - if that is a con?

    Best Uses

      Comments about Sony Worldman Radio:

      I travel allot and over the many years that I have owned this unchanged model, it has performed well and uses batteries modestly. TRansformer would have been nice I guess but most of the time that would be a hindrance for people on the go. You can also plug this into a range of small amps if needed.

          Great product and I love the radio. Really solid build and looks and feels really well built. Having good performance. It would be better to have a ac adapter for the radio.

          Comments about Sony Worldman Radio:

          It was dissapointing to find that this product ships without an AC Adapter as part of the package when purchased in the U.S.!!! Consequently, I had to buy one from a different company ($25.00) that is designed for this unit. Sony can do better

            Comments about Sony Worldman Radio:

            This radio is everything it was advertised to be. Reception is excellent. I purchased this unit primarily as a daily use radio, to pick up my preferred FM stations that are 70-100 miles away from my "dungeon" of an office. My office is in a finished "steel" building with metal roof and sides, drywall stud walls on the inside and only one little tiny window. No other radio that I tried could pick up stations that far away, let alone with such clarity as this Sony radio. Sound quality is what you would expect for a single speaker unit. I haven't tried an auxillary speaker set as of yet, but I'm sure it would improve music quality. The biggest downfall of this radio is that there is no power cord included with the unit, and apparently none available from Sony (it was discontinued for "noise" through the radio). I was able to purchase an aftermarket cord (built with a power regulator and noise filter) for about $25 and it seems to work just fine. Many cheap power cords on the web are apparently having issues with "noise" coming through the radio. Overall, the radio is great but I felt like it was overpriced... although you can't get much these days for [$]. Go ahead and buy it...you'll like it!
