From the Manufacturer
Enjoy programming from around the globe with this FM stereo multi-band world band receiver radio. Listen to the airwaves in virtually any country with the ICF-SW7600GR multi-band world band receiver radio. Features include an AM (LW/MW/SW)/FM Stereo, which provides accurate reception with stereo FM capability over a wide range of frequencies and 10 Key Direct Access tuning, which lets you capture distant stations directly. A sharp LCD display provides digital frequency read-out of the selected station. And you can store to 100 of your favorite stations.
AM (LW/MW/SW)/FM Stereo
The ICF-SW7600GR provides accurate reception with stereo FM capability over a wide range of frequencies from LW and MW(AM) to SW and FM.
The built-in hold button prevents accidental changes to preset station settings.
SSB (Single Side Band) Reception with 1kHz Step Tuning
SSB reception allows for fine tuning and optimum multi-mode reception with reduced interference on the narrow AM band, for better overall sound. Use the fine 1kHz step tuning for fast, precise station reception by tuning at 1kHz intervals.
A 3.5mm headphone jack is built in for private listening enjoyment and improved sound clarity in noisy environments.
The ICF-SW7600GR includes a built-in ferrite bar antenna for AM and LW, and telescoping antenna for FM and SW.
See digital frequency read-out information of the selected station on the built-in LCD display.
Synchronous Detection Circuitry
Reduce fading and annoying "beat" frequency interference from adjacent stations with the radio's synchronous detection circuitry, as well as distortion due to fading AM reception.
Auto Scan Tuning/Memory Scan
Auto scan tuning provides professional-type microprocessor-controlled tuning functions to scan--one at a time--all 100 memory presets and let you listen for a few seconds before deciding whether to remain on a particular station or let scanning continue.
World Time Clock/Dual Clock
Dual world time clocks allow you to display the current time at various locations around the globe as well the time where you live.
10-Key Direct Access Tuning
Sony's Direct Access Tuning lets you capture distant stations directly, with the ease of using a pocket calculator.
PLL Quartz Frequency Synthesized Tuning
PLL tuning is an extremely accurate method of tuning, with optimum stability that reduces drift to a minimum.
100 Station Memory Presets
The built-in station memory presets let you quickly and easily tune into up to 100 stations that you select to be saved in memory.
Dual Standby Function
Use the dual standby function to set the alarm for two different wake-up times or wake you to two different radio stations.

I went in for the sony 7600GR and have been very happy. The synchronous detection helps a lot. You can select between LSB and USB when doing synchronous detection. This helps you with those pesky neighbouring stations.If it is on the Lower freq. choose USB and vice versa.
The audio quality is a little inferior to the YB400. It also does not have a handy snooze button. But I am yet to meet a person who buys SW radios for audio quality or as an alarm clock.
The YB400 comes with a AC mains power adapter but the sony does not. The Reel antenna is included in both.
If you are looking for a radio that can tune into weak signals ,provide SSB functionality , synchronous detection , variable attenuation to drown out noisy interference then this is the adio for you. A keeper.
1. Synchronous detector! It enables the radio to lock
onto signals with tenacity. It reduces fading and noise and
enables you to eliminate interference by selecting a sideband
on the other side of the interfering signal. On the SW7600GR
it works very well. No other radio at this price has sync
2. Build quality. Made in Japan. The radio even feels
robust. It is.
4. Great portability.
Of course there are also some liabilities.
Sound through the little speaker is not as good as some
competing products. But given that this little Sony blows
the competitors away in almost all other respects,
this is a minor quibble. The sound isn't bad; it just
isn't room filling. As a personal radio this isn't such
a liability. Plus, you can always use earphones or connect
to auxiliary speakers (Cambridge Soundworks?).
The memory system is simple, without alphabetic labels.
There is no tuning dial, just jog buttons for scanning
the bands. Simplicity makes for easy operation, though.
FM reception is respectable (much better than the very
expensive big brother the Sony ICF-SW77). Standard AM
reception is good, possibly very good. But if you are
interested in DXing the AM bands, you already have a
GE Super Radio.
It doesn't have an AC adaptor (and you should AVOID buying
the horrible--and horribly expensive--official Sony adaptor).
If you want to power from AC, get an inexpensive one.Read more ›
At first glance, you know right away that the made-in-Japan Sony ICF-SW7600GR is definitely not available at your corner shoppe, much less your local electronics store - the interface consists of 27 buttons, 5 switches, and 3 knobs. There are two clocks and two alarms. There's two output jacks (headphone, line out) right next to the antenna jack. The whip antenna is nearly a full yard in length. Serious, indeed. But as intimidating as it all seems at first, the flowchart-logical layout is very efficient, and anyone who's ever wished their radio had something more than just a Stereo-Mono switch to get a weak signal is accommodated in more ways than one.
The seriousness continues when you pick up the 7600GR. Though it's considered a "coat pocket" portable, it feels as though it's filled with concrete or perhaps lead shot. If weight is a sign of quality, the 7600GR makes itself unabashedly clear, weighing in at just over 15 iPod Nanos (1 and 1/3 pounds). The positive-click buttons would be at home in a luxury car, the knobs turn smoothly, and switches move confidently into position. Nothing is loose or rattles, everything is buttoned-down and solid. You could say it feels German, but they stopped making portable radios long ago...Read more ›
Furthermore, I bought the AN-LP1 loop antenna made by Sony. This must be the perfect set up for someone that does not want to pay loads of money but still wants a "very" satisfying SWL experience. I love mine and would recommend it to anyone. Especially if you travel alot like me for you business. Portable and Powerful!
Finally, you will be suprised how easy it is to learn and operate. Most of the buttons I figured out without the user manual. However, there are a few nifty items I found in the user manual so don't forget to read it.
