I liked the extreme sensitivety on all bands along with the SSB sync. USB/LSB and broad/narrow band filters...None of the above come close in sensitivety..My first night of scanning it picked up 38 SW stations inside a 2 story house from the bottom floor using only the built in antennna on DX at about 10 ft. from the nearest window...It also scanned 17 AM stations and 43 FM stations...Considering the nearest station is 35 miles away I was impressed at the results...
The Sync. for both USB and LSB seperately is very sensitive and very impressive at removing unwanted noise and hiss...Even better than just using the standard USB/LSB filter...
Only the Grundig 350 has a better speaker but not by much...The dual 390 speakers obviously sound more stereo like but they are tinny, IMHO...The 660 speaker has a deep pleasant sound which exudes quality...Keeping in mind of course the size of the speaker and the entire price of the radio...
On a whim I decided to by these amplified speakers and they are superb:
Now I have a super sensitive radio with a truly awesome sound for $135...Can't beat it!!!
I liked the raised buttons as they are easier to find in the dark once their positions gets memorized...
I like the external charging of the internal NmH batteries...
I like the smooth rotary tuning, volume, and BFO knobs...
One can sync. lock on a station and rarely does another signal leak through...
I could keep going on and on about all the little things I like about this quality radio..Even the smooth pigskin like soft case is high class...
Also, the Amazon description indicates it has a 5v USB jack, but it doesn't...Not important to me but thought I would mention the error for others...
This entire radio just exudes quality...Buy it and don't look back..
In terms of Shortwave, SYNC detection circuitry works well on stronger signals in minimizing adjacent station interference. Single Side Band reception remarkably stable for a radio of this size and price. Being able to select between Upper and Lower side bands is a definite plus. Sensitivity is good with built-in whip antenna and much better when using supplied external antenna wire. Selectivity is average. Two supplied bandwidths are well-chosen and make an audible difference in reception quality.
AM and FM sections of this radio are well above average in terms of sensitivity though both suffer, to some extent, from ghost images meaning selectivity is about average. Audio quality is OK.
Long Wave not an issue at my location since most stations that can be heard are navigational beacons.
AIR band reception is fair, at best, and really requires a SQUELCH control for best reception.
Lots of features for the money including SYNC detector, selectable Upper/Lower sidebands, and bandwidths
Built-in NiMh charger with included batteries means you will not need to purchase batteries for a long time
Multiple tuning features and huge memory storage capacity
Above average sensitivity on SW/AM/FM bands
Informative LCD display
Some concerns about build quality
Selectivity average but considering price of radio a minor issue
AIR band reception below average
Wish the radio had a LINE OUT jack
Minor quibble: Wish the knobs on the side of the radio were recessed inside the cabinet a little bit. I had the tendency to bump into them and change the frequency.
All-in-all, a very good radio with many useful features. In many respects, this may be one of the finest SW portable radios on the American market today.

Absolutely awful. Got no SW stations tried in many rooms in house. Can't understand why anyone would "like" this product.
I am returning.
