Fabulous product and experience!!!

July 2, 2014

I needed to replace the small radio that my husband used outside while he worked in the garden or on the pool. He likes something he can put down and hear throughout the yard. I ordered 2 of the Sony ICE-8 radios for him. To my delight, they arrived the NEXT day!!!!! He loves his radio, he is never without it. I have been recommending this company to anyone I meet, because I order on-line at least once a week and with other companies I always have problems. Dealing with this company was a total pleasure. Easy ordering, extremely fast delivery and the product is simply perfect!

good small radio with built-in speaker

March 10, 2014

This radio is small and has a decent speaker, small but effective. Tuning is crisp and locks in stations AM or FM. A red diode lights up to show stations tuned in. I like to use my earphones which have superior sound for a small radio. I bought a Mono to Stereo adapter for $2 including shipping so that both left and right channels come in togetther.

I bought this radio (two of em) for my husband as a Christmas present. He is a mail carrier and needed a small, GOOD, radio in his delivery truck. He is extremely happy with both the compactness and sound of this little radio. I am very happy I got them!

Super Transistor Radio

November 26, 2013

I have been trying to find a transistor radio for my almost deaf mother that brings in a signal clear. She lives in an apartment that has a lot of interference due to power lines close by. This radio is WONDERFUL! - No static and very clear. Features are easy and uncomplicated.

Brings me back....

September 20, 2013

I purchased this transistor radio so that my children would know what we coveted back in the early 70's. Didn't disappoint. Still has the same tinny sound. Just wish it looked a little more 'retro.' Will be great when we have power outages here in the northeast with Nor'easters.

Love it

September 18, 2013

I bought this radio for my husband so he could listen to the baseball game while working in the yard. It's small enough to fit in his pocket and use with headphones, but also large enough to set it down and listen by speaker without it falling. Reception and sound are great. No regrets about buying this.
