Can you make it more painful to use this thing?
By halleluiaVerified Reviewer from Florida on 4/13/2013
Bottom Line:
No

I bought this radio because I wanted world band reception. So far (1 week) I haven't been successful in receiving any stations, including any local AM stations. FM seems to work fine. One cautionary note about this radio is it's absurdly complex, archaic, and illogical controls. I predict it will inhibit usage because I won't remember all the complexities. There is no straight forward way to dial stations as you might with a traditional turn knob. You have to press several buttons just to get to tune in a channel or even to scan. Some buttons have dual functions, so you have to remember what mode you are in. If you're not quick enough to press the next button, the function is cancelled. This radio reminds of the half-baked, user unfriendly automotive controls via a touch screen which make it painful to get some basic tasks accomplished.

 
Phenominal Radio!!!
By dba22Verified Reviewer from Saginaw, MI on 1/5/2013
Bottom Line:
Yes

As a long time amateur radio operator, I've used receivers and transceivers costing literally 30 times as much as the ICF-SW7600GR. To put it mildly, I am VERY impressed with this little gem!!! It easily picks up SSB and CW signals on all of the low bands with just the whip antenna and is stable as a rock too. Contrary to other comments, the fidelity is also excellent even with just the internal speaker and with head phones, it's full spectrum. No ham or even casual SWL'er should be without one of these amazing little, go any where receivers!!! An AC adapter for what is intended to be a portable receiver makes zero sense which is likely the reason why one isn't provided.

 
Amazing Product for Size
By BazilVerified Reviewer from Toronto on 8/10/2012
Pros:
Small Size, Range - Qty of output
Cons:
Capabilities require that you hold onto manual - if that is a con?
Bottom Line:
Yes

I travel allot and over the many years that I have owned this unchanged model, it has performed well and uses batteries modestly. TRansformer would have been nice I guess but most of the time that would be a hindrance for people on the go. You can also plug this into a range of small amps if needed.

 
Great Solid product
By PianomanVerified Reviewer from Richmond, VA on 12/24/2011

Great product and I love the radio. Really solid build and looks and feels really well built. Having good performance. It would be better to have a ac adapter for the radio.

 
ICF=SW7600GR
By TreborVerified Reviewer from Winter Haven, Fl. on 11/4/2011

It was dissapointing to find that this product ships without an AC Adapter as part of the package when purchased in the U.S.!!! Consequently, I had to buy one from a different company ($25.00) that is designed for this unit. Sony can do better
