Re: Grundig G6

I do agree Steve. Not only has Eton slipped on QC, they also stopped publishing "real-radio" specs. Personally, I think thats a profit-motivated strategy at the consumer's expense. Eton/Grundig have accordingly lost my trust in their brands. If I want a crap-shoot, I'll go to a casino, not an electronics store.

Hi Guys,

These recent opinions on the G6 correlate well to the mixed reviews I
have found for the G6 (and the G3 for that matter). It seems to me
that quality control is an issue for the recent Eton/Grundig models. I
guess it comes down to a bit of pot luck; if you get a great
individual model you will be happy, if you get a lemon, you will not
be. This is an area where Tecsun seems to be better, overall
consistence in performance of a line.

If these are all produced at the same factory (I have read that
Tecsun, Degen and Eton are all produced by the same factories) it is
an interesting situation to me, suggested that perhaps of the 3
brands, Eton may be cutting the most costs by lower QC. If that were
the case it is especially ironic since they have the highest retail
asking prices of the 3.

Best Wishes,

I hate to tell you this guys, but my G6 Buzz edition beats my G8 in
the AM and shortwave band barefoot. Even after alignment of the
stock G8 loopstick for the BCB. I listen to WGN and WBBM regularly
on my G6. I took it camping in the UP of MI and had a blast with it.

Thanks to Tony and Keith for the info regarding the G6. My Sony
2010 is
not much on the air band unless you are at an airport. Including the
air band in radios must've been included to give an airline traveler
something to pass time while waiting on a flight to arrive.

I've been very pleased with my G8 and PL-380 and the G6 sounds
like it
would be a disappointment compared to the other 2.
