I am very glad to have purchased this radio assembled in China, using the technologies of the old Japanese radio school, I am sure that it will last a long time. I listen at work in the background, it reproduces music well, the broadband speaker is completely fabric, the suspension is reflexed. The high and mid frequencies play out cleanly and clearly, the bottoms are a bit lacking for surround sound. The competitor in the face of the Panasonic RF-2400D for $30 loses in all the main parameters, at first I bought it for my father as a gift for the DR, listened to it, and gave it to him. Then I decided to buy myself something similar, but with better quality, I came across SONY icf-506, only the problem is that there is no place to buy it. Tecsun and Sangean studied and did not consider buying. Since I managed to test the Panasonic RF-2400D, I can note its shortcomings in comparison with the Sony ones that are missing. So; Volume control with an inconvenient gear wheel, jumping volume when the wheel rotates, a smaller speaker that wheezes at full volume, the sound is worse, the headphone output is single-channel, the antenna does not rotate, only the tilt, the case and the carrying handle are made awkwardly with noticeable slots and rough stamping. The mechanism for moving the slider is made on a wheel-and-thread system, is it outdated and reliable? when Sony has gears and cogwheels. When opening in Panasonic, you can see the use of a microcircuit from Sony, such is the Malaysian engineering))) There are pluses 4xAA, price, the ability to buy in 2022, that's all. I don’t particularly hope that the review will be useful to someone, but it’s interesting to read to compare two competing radios.
