Top Customer Reviews
In a world that flocks to knock-offs and eschews original thinking, I will begin with something I rarely say about any product I purchase these days: this Executive Satellit radio by Etón/Grundig is the genuine article - truly exceptional, with no close competitor in its class with regard to its stylish compact design, sensitivity, features, functionality, build quality and yes, its remarkable audio performance.
As other purchasers have noted on Amazon, and as with any advanced device, the user is strongly advised to become familiar with the contents of the Owner's Manual to ensure s/he is getting the full benefit of the available features. The English version of the manual is surprisingly thoughtful and well-written (considering the radio's high level of sophistication), contrary to what some reviewers on Amazon have commented, with just one mistake spotted (you will need to quick press the U/LSB/RDS MODE button only once to activate SSB, and not the SYNC/SSB/RDS button twice as indicated on page 18 of the manual). Many buttons have more than one function, depending on the operating mode. The well-thought out buttons are ergonomically sized and spaced and are well thought out (no gratuitous use of buttons here). Good news is, it all becomes quite intuitive after just a little practice; there is no steep learning curve. I found it easier to just print off the online manual (the one in the box is a small booklet, great for travel purposes) so I could lay out the instructions on the table beside the radio, a la IKEA. In the manual you will find out about absolutely amazing features, like the five (that's right - 5) different ways to tune in to your favorite stations, including auto-tuning and automatic station storage in the 700-station memory via ATS or manual entry. I really like the 5-second delay scanning/scan-and-pause feature so you can listen to the stations the radio finds for you and then decide if you want to keep listening, save it to memory or just let it keep searching for more frequencies automatically. The good old reliable tuning dial lets you choose how fast or slow, in set frequency intervals, you wish to manually tune stations.
The compact unit has a sleek, modern appearance that's easy on the eyes. It has a solid feel with good overall build quality and fits nicely in the palm of your hands. The tuning dial clicks firmly and confidently, not plasticky and lightweight like other brands of radios that have yet to get this important but subtle interface just right. Most surprising is the sheer number of stations I could pull in clearly and cleanly without extending the whip antenna - powerful built-in DX does the trick, and so my antenna is almost always neatly retracted and invisible even while using the radio in FM mode. Blows away my C Crane CC Skywave in this regard, and then some. Also checked out the audio quality with standard headphone earbuds as well as the line-in/out feature. Results: clean, strong mellow stereo or mono sound quality that's a treat to the ears and ideal for extended listening.
The display tells you all you need to know without the typical clutter and general information overload confusion found in many other superficially similar radios. There are three level of illumination and an 'off' setting. Keep in mind that, if your display has been inactive for some time, the first press of most buttons merely wakes up the display, so you will need to press that button again within a few seconds to actually activate its function (great for clumsy people like me, this feature helps prevents unintended changes to the radio's settings; for additional peace of mind, there's even a separate 'lockout/disable' button - the one with the 'key' icon - just in case your toddler finds your shiny new radio as fascinating as you do!). The handy Page/Time button lets you toggle the basic radio information in the display and the stored memory locations.
Power is supplied by four AA batteries (alkaline or rechargeable) which gives the radio a substantial feel and sufficient capacity to seemingly play forever. Very energy efficient at the moderate volumes at which I have tested it; batteries are still at near full charge after more than a week of frequent use.
It has been a pleasure getting to know this little radio. I can't really think of anything the designers had forgotten. If there is, it must not have been terribly important. This radio arguably marks an important milestone for Eton/Grundig in the portable category. The Executive Satellit strikes a perfect balance between functionality and convenient portability. Unlike vinyl records, portable radio never really left but instead seemed content to bide its time waiting in the wings. Now, thanks in part to user-friendly and practical radios such as this, it's staging a come-back like never before.
Throw in the included stylish leather case for protection and this Executive Satellit radio is destined to become our stalwart travel and vacation companion for years to come.
- Good overall radio sensitivity
- Convenient size and Portability
- Excellent Battery Life
- Pleasing Audio Quality
- Rugged build quality
- Thoughtful and aesthetic design
- Better overall radio than my C Crane CC Skywave
- One error in English version of the user's manual (see above)
- Costs more than my CC Skywave, but definitely worth the extra investment
P.S. For those who wish to skip to the concluding thoughts: I really, really like this radio.
A true portable radio.
List of things for Etons next shortwave radio:
A larger radio (a special edition) for a bigger speaker and increased reception ability (increased ferrite rod for better Am reception and dxing ability by Drake like the satellite 800 and E1 satelite radios) and memory card for recording broadcasts.
A different color like champagne for that ultra-modern look.
A OLED display with perhaps a HDMI output to a computer or tablet.
The use of semi-pro/pro antennas.
