They are indeed.  In fact, I would go as far to say that they are a great little rig period.  I know a lot of guys who have been hams as long as I have and they now use them for their primary radio.  They are a lot of fun to operate and they do an amazing job considering the price.

I wonder if they are a great radio. I have seen a lot of them listed on the swap shops the past month or so. Some guys clearly stated they were not happy with the Icom 7300.  Roll Eyes

A couple of ops up my way have them and they do not have good audio. Now that may be operator error but their audio is not great.

Every 7300 I've heard sound fantastic with just the stock microphone, so I suspect operator error comes into that. My friend in Los Angeles sounds excellent on his 7300.

Maybe if the receiver is non Icom it makes the difference?  Wink

I'm afraid I will have to disagree with you on that one.  I have been a ham for 52 years and in all that time the IC-7300 is the best entry level rig I have ever seen.  I have more radios in my basement than most hams have owned, I have rigs spanning from the 1930's to an IC-7600.  I have a Drake B Line, the R4B is legendary for it's audio.  I have been fortunate to have used an IC-7300 and the receive audio is as good as any radio I have ever used.  I have also worked quite a number of them on the air and they really sound great.  I seriously doubt that the IC-7600 will not sound at least as good.  

Not sure where you got your information from but you need to sit down at the table and operate one before you say the audio isn't good.  Also, every other new rig made in the last five years or so are all over the swap boards and given the number of 7300's that were sold I would say that the number for sale is a very small percentage.  Lastly, anyone who was selling a radio would never say it has crummy audio, unless they don't want it to sell.

Every IC-7300 station I have worked sounded very good. Not overly crisp, annoying 'communication' audio, but a nicely rounded and full sounding signal. Is this effective audio for DX? No idea.. Sounds OK here.

According to the video I have seen on the Icom 7300 the audio can be adjusted in alot of diffrent ways. But it comes out of the box adjusted really well. I also think there is a playback selection Awesome.

Mtcradio had a one day sale for 1100. ICOM rebate and it's an even grand. Best deal (new+factory warranty) I could find.
