Forgot to mention the crappy switching power supply included with the PL-600. It renders the radio unusable.
And the lousy included 1000mAh nicads. Internal charging problems with batteries in the radio is a well documented problem. A set of Duracells run it for about a week of casual use; that's what I do.
Oh, yeah, the manual was in Chinese. But a suitable manual in engrish is on the web as a PDF.
Still, no regrets. Fine radio, and in spite of all that, I'm happy with it.
The radio isn't meant to be run off AC anyway. The AC is there to charge the nicads. If you take the batteries out at the end of each day they'll last longer, Chinese portables are notorious energy vampires and drain batteries fast. I'm using a Degen 1102 with the supplied nicads, and it seems to charge fine. The Tecsuns are half the radio of the old Degens for twice the price.
