Our promise of quality radios: C-tick compliance

Our Tecsun PL880 Radio was reviewed in December 2014’s Silicon Chip Magazine.

 Here are just a few of the things they had to say about it:

“Top marks to Tecsun!”

“Features and performance which far exceed those of the smaller cousins.”

“It’s a good looking radio, it’s a great sounding radio and it has every feature you could possibly want (and then some). In fact, in the time we had to play with it, we reckon we just scratched the surface of what it can do. And even then, it was impressive, to say the least.”

“If you want a radio that offers exceptional performance and a great range of ‘creature comforts’, you can’t go past the Tecsun PL880 radio.”

We had a bit of a play around with the PL880 radio today too!
