A JewelMy two previous reviews were for the Grundig M400
The Grundig Mini is the replacement for the M400 and a vast improvement over it. First and least important, the speaker sounds adequate for its size, I am still using headphones for a truly superb sound. The Mini has a digital tuner which is rock stable on a frequency. The tuning dial turns with smooth clicks at 5 Khz steps. The scanner function is outstanding, 5 Khz steps again, it stops at all audible stations, weak and strong. On short wave at night weak stations that are barely audible and badly drifting in and out on the M400 come in loud, clear and stable on the Mini. The band selector button is much smoother and with distinct clicks than that on the M400
A minor nuisance is that the button marked with a red dash is on the side of the radio and the band markings are on the front, in order to see both you need to hold the radio at 45 degrees.
This radio performs like a true digital receiver costing hundreds of dollars more. Two things it does not have are direct digital entry and station memory. This is understandable as adding 10 more push buttons on a radio this small would be a real clutter.

Fair deal for the priceHandsomely designed and well made. It's good for major shortwave stations. The speaker is totally inadequate, with headphones the sound is superb. Tuning is not digital as advertised, it's analog, only the frequency display is digital. Being analog the radio drifts off frequency from time to time and needs to be re-tuned but only slightly. A good reliable gadget if you need to keep up with the news when out of internet range.
