For everyone's information, just found this new review. It's only 2
days old! It looks like Sangean is coming out with a new radio. It
looks pretty good too. Something unique is that there is a user
feedback form so you can send a message to the CEO of Sangean. This is
a must read for everyone intersted in radio. The radio won't even be
released for another 2 months.

Just thought I would let everyone know!

Ciao!

Very nice radio. AM/FM for the U.S., and AM/FM/LW for the U.K.

Too bad no SW.  Very nice though. Finally some class, liberation from simple
black and silver plastic.

Regards.

I saw a repro tombstone radio at the Salvation Army store the other day.
The design wasn't half bad.  I would have bought it if it the veneer wasn't
damaged in a couple of places, exposing the chipboard underneath.  Or if it
had a SW band.  I'm guessing it was around 10 years old.

I hope they reproduce metal cabinet radios.  Not like VCR box metal.  Like
SX-28 metal.  That would be cool.

No doubt. Me thinks that the radio manufacturers are missing a market in
nostalgic items, especially if they can offer at least a moderate degree of
performance. As those of us that are in their 40s, 50s, and 60s age, we would
make ideal purchasers especially if they can market the items like "mom's
apple pie", from a seemingly more innocent age when radio ruled supreme.

Regards.

It's a  niche market now, but it could develop beyond that.  Most of today's
common radios are commidity items(not the most of the radios of interest to
this group) , there's little to distinguish one from another besides price.
Maybe they will try to compete more on cosmetics.  That's how things were in
the AA5 era, when nearly all the table radios had the same performance, and
they competed on price and appearance.  And the retro look market is growing
for alot of products now.

Hello Diverd,

God, that article is so funny! I have read it about 2 or 3 times now
and still laughing my a%* off! Chris Justice has got a pretty good
sense of humor! What starts with a "B" and rhymes with "hose"?

Holy crap! I showed that to my wife and she even knew what it was!!
That's some pretty classic writing, even for an engineer. (Chris, if
you are reading this, don't take offense!)

Good looking radio! If it is anything like Chris said it is, should be
a good one to buy. Think I will sign up on the list and get my
pre-order in.

Ok, back to some pirate broadcasting on 6955!! Propogation sucks
though!

Ciao!

Lee

The color suggests one of the Hallicrafters table radios of the 50s.

All they need is an aux 110 volt outlet on the front for my coffeepot, and
I'm sold.

Actually, I was hoping for the actual comparison to the other three
models he mentioned he made. Especially considering this thing looks
like a replica of the Tivoli.

And the e-mails to the CEO of Sangean actually go back to the website.
So writing "stop making your radios in China, dummy" won't accomplish
anything.

The Henry Kloss radios "Model One" and  "Tivoli" are selling like hotcakes
(I guess) in Europe right now... I think Sangean is trying to cash in on
this same "wave" by offering a similar radio with an emphasis on easy
operation , small size , and very good sound for the price.

Tragically no shortwave.  It would be nice to have about 3 shortwave
bands added to this rig.  Say 5 mHz to 18 mHz.  With Sangeans
shortwave experience it could be a very nice radio.  A major step up
from the Grundig Classic 960.

I think they'd clean house on the entry level tabletop market if put the guts of a 909 in a cabinet like this with a nice tuning knob and a so-239 or BNC antenna connector.
