I would like to receive some feedback from anyone with experience with those equipments specifically in low bands.

Under your opinion wich one is more suitable for that application.

Consider the Elecraft K2 - it's in the same league with the rigs you mention and gets my vote!

Really depends on your needs.
Basically:

Do you like a real time scope? If so, 756proII

Do you like 2 meters combined? 746pro

The 870S is older architecture. Older DSP. No dual watch or second receiver as in proII. Good radio, from what I hear, so I am not knocking the 870S.

I have the 756proII and 746pro. Love them both!
First choice would be the proII.

Put them asside and look at the Elecraft K2 or better yet the TenTec Orion.

I would recommend the Ten Tec Orion. Latest technology, software upgradeable, Best reciever available today, very good TX audio, and service / support that is unmatched in my experience. Next would be the Yaesu FT-1000mp, but beware of some QC problems at Yaesu these days. The Icom 756 Pro II has a lot of features, lights, knobs etc. and is a good radio, but the reciever falls a little short under crowded / noisy band conditions, especially if you like weak signal Dx work. Depends on what you want the most. 73

Hola Javier
Mira, yo tengo un FT 920, de la Yaesu, y estoy muy satisfecho de su rendimiento, he tenido muchos equipos pero realmente este es uno de los que quedará en mi estación por mucho tiempo.
La única consideración es que conviene instalarle el filtro de CW original y si eres un "concursero" te conviene cambiarle el filtro de SSB por uno un poquito más angosto.
Haciendo todo esto lo mismo te costará mucho menos que cualquiera de los equipos que tu mencionas.
El K 2 es muy lindo equipo, pero creo que este equipo está un poco "inflado". Desde ya, tienes que ver bien para lo que lo quieres.
Un saludo muy cordial. Max. LU5AIM/EA7 desde Sevilla. España.
