I own both the IC-7000 and IC-706MKIIG.  The 706 since 2003 and the 7000 since 2007.  Never had a problem with either.  I prefer the 706 mobile over the 7000 but that is pure personal preference.  I use the 7000 for casual rag chew purposes at home using an SM-6 microphone, no processing and proper alc drive.  No reports regarding "barrel" audio.  The 7000 is a great little radio which beats my IC-756ProII in some aspects.  I'm disappointed that so many have had final issues and consider myself lucky that I have not?

I have used the 200 watt version of the TS-480 mobile.  I found it an excellent radio in the mobile environment. It appeared that 200 watts had an edge over 100 watts using the same antenna mobile. 

The 480 seems to have a better track record than the 7000.  If you are Icom shy I would not hesitate buying a 480 realizing that it is an HF+6 minus 2/440 rig.

Good luck in your endeavors!
