Whether you're looking for a stylish portable alarm clock radio or an MP3-capable CD player to accompany you on the road, Grundig's Etón Ego 4000 Plus may be calling your name. The compact unit uses Grundig's proprietary detachable speaker docking system, which lets you remove the speakers from the exterior of the folding lid and position them apart, like your home speakers. Or, you can leave the speakers attached and play the unit like a small boombox. In any case, Grundig also provides a pair of lightweight street-style stereo headphones to bypass the speakers altogether for private listening.
The Etón Ego 4000 Plus plays not just audio CDs, but recordable CDs filled with MP3 files, too, with ID3 tag capability (for artist and title display) and the benefit of 40-second shock protection (or an amazing 120 seconds for MP3). Bass boost and a selection of five preset equalization curves help you tailor the sound to your personal preference, and you can listen in various random or repeat modes or program up to 20 CD/MP3 CD tracks to play in sequence.
The player's fold-up top section puts a backlit LCD in clear view, especially handy when using the built-in alarm and/or calendar features. The clock offers a date indicator, 12-hour time mode, dual alarms (with snooze), and local/world time. You or your partner can wake to the radio, a CD, or a buzzer. For power, use four AA batteries or the unit's AC power adapter (both included).
Choose from 15-, 30-, and 60-minute sleep settings, or rely on auto power off to shut the player down at the end of a disc. The FM/AM radio comes with 30 station presets (20 FM, 10 AM), auto scanning, and antennas.
Grundig's design-driven Etón line of portable-audio offers a graceful combination of form and function. Unique product design is the basis for all models, as well as functionality above and beyond other products in the same category. With features that satisfy high-tech, style-conscious listeners, Etón products have an added flare that will attract people seeking distinctive portable audio.

If you're looking for a solid pocket radio, and you think you might enjoy tuning into broadcasts from around the globe, consider the remanufactured Grundig G2000A world receiver. As the big brother to the G1000A, this radio packs a ton of value and functionality into a handheld radio that lets you listen to stations near and far.
A stylish, pocket-sized way to bring clear AM/FM and limited shortwave radio reception with you wherever you go. View larger.

Measuring 5.5 by 3.6 by 1.4 inches (W x H x D) and weighing under 12 ounces, the G2000A certainly fits in the pocket-sized radio category. Notably, this radio was designed by F.A. Porsche and features a stylish, snap-on leather case. The case protects your radio from dents and dings, but also doubles as a handy fold-back stand that makes it easy to position the radio in an upright position on your desk or coffee table. You can even snap the cover closed, and the thoughtful design does not hinder access to the antenna, speaker, or power button.
Most of the action can be found on the front of the unit, where you'll find a direct frequency entry keypad, as well as buttons for auto-scanning (hold down the "H" or "M" tuning buttons for a moment, and the auto-scan takes over), power, meter (shortwave band selection), sleep, memo/time set, and alarm. In addition, the front of the unit features a slide-switch that locks the keypad, and another that allows you to select between radio and buzzer for the alarm. All of these controls, as well as the LCD display, are arranged to the right of the G2000A's built-in speaker.
On the left side of the G2000A you'll find a 3.5 mm connector for headphones and a DC jack power port. Grundig has included a set of earbud-style earphones for private listening right out of the box, or you can share broadcasts with other listeners via the small, built-in speaker on the front of the device. In addition to the power port and headphone jack, this side of the radio also sports a mono/stereo slide-switch. The top of the unit features the slide volume control and a switch for FM, MW (commonly known as AM), SW1, and SW2. The SW1 position holds six shortwave band selections, and the SW2 holds seven. Once you select SW1 or SW1, you can then scroll through various bands with the meter button on the front of the unit. The G2000A also features a telescoping antenna on top of the unit that extends to over 20 inches for FM and shortwave reception, and there is a built-in ferrite bar antenna for AM reception. In addition to AC power (not included), the G2000A can also run off of three AA batteries.
The G2000A's display is crisp and clear, with a clean layout that makes it easy to control the radio's tuning, clock, and timer functions. When the radio is off, the display shows the time of day. When the radio is on, the display shows the frequency, but if you want to check the time or alarm settings, simply press the mode button to scroll through the other settings. This doesn't disturb your broadcast, and it allows you to check the time without turning the unit off--a nice touch for a pocket-sized radio. Selecting shortwave meter bands is a breeze with this display, as you simply push the meter button until the meter you want is displayed on the screen. The radio's memories are easy to browse and recall on the display, as well.
The display provides other icons for even greater information. For example, two arrows in the upper left-hand corner light up when a station is correctly tuned; a small infinity sign indicates stereo reception for FM; the word "alarm" appears on the screen when the alarm is set, and a small bell or musical note indicate a buzz or radio wake-up. The G2000A even has an empty battery icon that lets you know when your radio is almost out of juice. You can also press the light button on the front of the device for viewing the display in the dark. However, the light feature shuts off if you lift your finger from the button, making it difficult to change settings or tune the unit in the dark. We would have liked to see a light that turned on and off with the press of a button, as opposed the G2000A's wristwatch-style illumination.
Tuning the G2000A is straightforward. The radio tunes MW, FM, and shortwave signals, and you can choose from manual, auto-scan, or direct frequency entry modes. If you're new to shortwave, auto-scan will quickly become your friend. With it, we quickly made discoveries, and heard stations from all over the world--although our limited language skills made it difficult to always know exactly to whom or what we were listening. We found the manual, up/down button press-tuning the most laborious, but with it, very meticulous tuning is possible.
The G2000A allows you to program 20 stations into the memory, five on each band. Considering the impressive memory system of some other pocket-sized radios (many will store over 500 frequencies), we were a little disappointed with the G2000A's station storage. However, once stored, recalling the memories is pretty easy thanks to a straightforward onscreen interface.
