I'd love to see the results of a 390 vs 380 head to head MW sensitivity/soft mute comparison...!

The lone speaker in the PL-360 is less than 1.5 inches, and speech is quite clear, so maybe the two speakers in the PL-390 will do OK. It sounds like the '390 has a longer ferrite rod than the '310, so maybe it will have better sensitivity AND less muting problems as well as the Easy Tuning. Too bad it does not qualify as a ULR. - FARMERIK
