I have bought this radio for my husband, so I let him do the review on my behalf.
George Nagy''s review:
General observations: 1. The size of the radio is 8.25 x 5.25x2.50 inches.
2. The radio has analog tuning on AM, FM and SW.
3. Three D batteries or the power cord supply the energy.
4. The long antenna is helpful in tuning FM and SW.
5. The digital readout works for the MP3 player only.
Positive qualities: 1. The large speaker provides excellent sound (3W)
2. The stations can be tuned in by turning the tuning knob. Many stations come in except for
SW. Reception on SW depends on the time of day and the location of the radio.
3. The operation is so easy that one hardly needs the instruction booklet.
4. The sound of the MP3 is excellent. I like the fact that the radio has input for TF, SD as well
as for USB. This brings it from the old analog radio world to the digital world.
5. The compact size makes the radio ideal for travel or outdoor use although the three D
batteries add some weight to it.
6. The radio is a godsend for older folks who are used to analogue tuning and simple design.
Features not found: 1. The radio does not have a clock or sleep timer.
2. The MP3 screen shows the number of the song and time elapsed but not the name of the
song or album.
3. The radio stations come in clear but show interference if the radio is next to a computer
or other electronic device.
Overall impression: I have a collection of more than 50 radios going back to the 1960''s. I have chosen the TR618
for everyday use because of its convenient features and powerful sound. This radio takes the
place of my 1980''s giant boombox which used cassettes. One 32 GB SD card play as many
songs as hundreds of my old cassettes or CD''s.
A big thank you to my wife for buying me this radio.

I don''t really write that many reviews. But to make people aware and be very clear I have posted photo of my install utilizing a google plug. Yes this is a very small radio and whoever guided me to tell me that a Google plug would not work. They are wrong since this has the old style power volume control- it will it will allow the radio to turn on and off from a distance, which is a great security device. If you''re looking for quality of sound I wouldn''t look to this radio it does not provide good quality sound. The 1 radio speaker very small and only operate in mono sound. The signal seems to be fairly good overall, however the short wave feature I find to be useless. I was actually hoping for a weather radio feature but can not figure out how exactly to tune that in - if anyone knows??? I don''t agree with all the high ratings on this radio, because I have owned some very awesome Sears brand boom boxes that had TV channels- weather radio and great stereo sound. With digital sound now out there needs to be an upgrade on this model. I am giving this radio a fair 3 out of 5. Please check my photos out, I took time to help and guide others so please if you know the answer to my question above, take a moment to reply! ~thanks

This radio blew me away. Really! I''m getting channels in the day time as far away as 200 miles. Stations I can''t get at night on my other radios. As far as short wave ? Tonight will tell the tale but I''m pretty sure I won''t be dissapointed. Forget my bad spelling but don''t underestimate this little radio. I watched and listened to reviews both negative and positive for months before buying this set. At 48.00 it''s a bit pricy but I think it will prove to be worth it. It runs odd a.c. cord included plus D batteries not included. That''s one thing that drew me in. Most SW radios seem to be rechargeable and THATS nice but if you have no power and it goes down your stuck. With this you can put in New batteries if needed. Or as I do just plug it in and enjoy. I highly reccomend this radio to anyone. It has features like sb card and mp3 which I''ll never use but they are nice to have. This is my second retekess brand radio and it''s like the first. Top shelf quality at a middle shelf price. If your on the fence I''d say give it a try. Reception is subjective as to where your located and I''m in a poor area for radio. Right now it''s 1:50 pm. I''m listening to Oklahoma City on am and I''m in eastern Kentucky! As for shortwave. I''ve tried for a few night and it''s not verry good. It could be conditions or maybe my location but I''d have to say if your looking for primary shortwave set this is not the one. Other than that it''s fine

This radio has a very nice sound and plays extremely loud if you turn up the volume. FM stations are very, very clear, the AM stations, not so much, and short wave is non-exsistant where we live (rural area). I tested the usb with mp3''s on it, and it plays beautifully. Too bad the controls are so cheaply made. Compare it to our radio controls in the U.S...no comparison...U.S. wins hands down. The selection knobs should be bigger, and the text for selections could be more outstanding/larger. Also, the selection knobs as they are now, makes it difficult to know what you selected as there is no "click" when you''re at a selection, if that makes any sense. There are 2 of these knobs, one goes left or right for radio or usb selection, which is easy enough. The other knob goes left, middle, or right for FM, AM, or SW. If the seller improved the controls, this radio would be worth the $50, right now, no. Despite this, I decided to keep it since I bought it for my mother. She is happy with it, and just wanted a small radio. The size and weight are perfect for her, and she keeps the radio on her nightstand. Takes 3 D batteries or plug in to electical outlet. Either way, the radio plays well. Tuning the radio is easy for mom since it''s just turning the knob and listening for stations. The size of the radio station numbers are large enough to read, but it''s not necessary to read it because the volume can be really loud, and just listening for stations works well for her because she is hard of hearing. I''d buy one for myself, but not until they make improvements with the controls, or lower the price. My mother is not as picky as I am.

You''ll hear on the video that after <3 months of having this radio (in case of emergency), which worked when I got it but does not work now for no apparent reason. It''s too late for me to get my money back. Less than 3 months is a pretty short window of return for a mechanical item, especially one intended for use in an emergency *given that it has short wave, etc.* Buyer beware from this disreputable seller. The body of the radio is exceedingly cheap and a 6-month-old could probably lift it.

A Really Nice Radio!.
A Fine Product, And A Top Quality Purchase!
Its getting really hard to find a ''really nice'' quality shortwave radio as a reasonable price!.
LIKES:
The right size Not too big , Or too Small!.....
Very,Very Nice Price!.
Good Reception on all bands!.
Picks up pretty good on SW Bands too!.
DISLIKES:
Its ''So Good'' its hard to find fault, but a couple of Teeny Things!.
Thing i miss most on Modern Radios this one too is no ''Soft Leather'' case for use/traveling!.
I miss the folding base the old travel radios had, But the flip side is this radio is large enough
to also use as a desktop, Or bookshelf radio in a den, Or office sic!...

OTHERWISE:
Reception is really pretty good, And I like the new feature where you can insert a USB or Stick Drive with preloaded Music/Audio. To listen both to favorites or if you are far away from home.....
Tips an Tricks:
Like many people who live on the outer-edge of a big city, SW Reception can be spotty at times so just a few tips?.
You almost always get better reception in the evening or P.M. Hours when stations can run at full strength.
My Experiences:
You need to really be careful and use a Fine touch in tuning for Foreign Broadcasts!.
Upstairs reception is usually better as in Basements/Cellars you usually cant pick up good.
On this one I had to move it around a bit, And It picks up a lot better by placing it by a window!.
Also florescent lights, Wifi routers, and cordless phones can affect these too so keep them apart.
I also remembered the old trick of placing a small ball of Aluminum/Tin foil on the tip of the Antenna.
It really helps to bring in some stations better .

Ok to close let me finish by saying its a Good Radio, A quality item and I got it at at great price.
Shipping was reasonable and delivery was fast!...
Kudos to the Seller for Low Price!.
Kudos to Amazon for a Good Item!.
A Happy Customer:

This is an excellent tabletop radio that''s portable enough to carry anywhere to listen. D batteries and AC cord options make it versatile. The Micro/SD and USB slots (all 3) are very nice. Sitting near an exterior wall of my house, and near a window, it tunes in SO MUCH MORE than I can tune in any of my cars or other tuners in the house (AM and FM). Shortwave is usable with the telescopic antenna, but a long-wire out the window really makes it come alive. Of course, time of day, weather, other factors influence SW more than AM and FM. It also picks up stations that overlap, and it''s possible to tune them sometimes better when coming from either side of that frequency (sweeping from R to L or L to R on the dial back and forth VERY slowly, I find I can tune some stations in better when they''re close to others). For Shortwave, there is a TON of frequency space jammed into one little dial (some radios have 8-12 separate bands on a switch, but here, there''re all on the same single dial) - PREPARE TO TUNE VERY S L O W L Y, or you''ll miss stations. This isn''t difficult though.

Sound quality is very nice. It''s won''t reproduce deep bass, and it doesn''t have screaming highs. It won''t shake the table, or itself much for that matter, but sounds full and will play loud enough to fill a room for all in it to hear. It won''t shake the walls, and is certainly no boombox.

Pros:
- D Batteries and AC option
- mp3/wma compatibility, 32GB max card size for SD/MicroSD
- Very selective and sensitive tuner
- Controls are easy to read, use, and have a positive feel.
- Decently long telescoping antenna, feels sturdy and heavier than some smaller radios
- Great sound for all day listening, music, talk radio, background, but can be increased to fill a room so others can hear too.

Cons:
- Handle feels cheap - very thin plastic, but heavy enough to do the job. Doesn''t feel like it''s going to break.
- The display only works in mp3/USB mode.
- The light stays on all the time in mp3/USB mode. This will reduce battery life
- The tuner has an odd gain control function where a station will be faint, but then get a lot louder all of a sudden. This really isn''t a bad thing, but it takes getting used to. It doesn''t tune like a completely manual tuner since it''s DSP.

I''d recommend this radio to anyone looking to get a functional, easy to use, solid radio that''s easy to move around and sounds decent for low to medium listening volume either close up or from across a room.

Excellent portable radio for the price. Sound is OK but not Bose quality, bit tinny. controls are very smooth, AM and FM reception excellent in our area but do not expect much for SW reception. What I like is the portability and use of batteries for when power outage and for outdoor activities, not waterproof. Also USB and SD card inputs which work out very well.

Good sound on AM and FM, seems to lock in on all the local stations well. Haven''t spent much time with the Shortwave band yet, so can''t really comment on it. Would have been nice if the LED readout gave a frequency readout, but I guess that would have increased the price.

I have bought this radio for my husband, so I let him do the review on my behalf.
George Nagy''s review:
General observations: 1. The size of the radio is 8.25 x 5.25x2.50 inches.
2. The radio has analog tuning on AM, FM and SW.
3. Three D batteries or the power cord supply the energy.
4. The long antenna is helpful in tuning FM and SW.
5. The digital readout works for the MP3 player only.
Positive qualities: 1. The large speaker provides excellent sound (3W)
2. The stations can be tuned in by turning the tuning knob. Many stations come in except for
SW. Reception on SW depends on the time of day and the location of the radio.
3. The operation is so easy that one hardly needs the instruction booklet.
4. The sound of the MP3 is excellent. I like the fact that the radio has input for TF, SD as well
as for USB. This brings it from the old analog radio world to the digital world.
5. The compact size makes the radio ideal for travel or outdoor use although the three D
batteries add some weight to it.
6. The radio is a godsend for older folks who are used to analogue tuning and simple design.
Features not found: 1. The radio does not have a clock or sleep timer.
2. The MP3 screen shows the number of the song and time elapsed but not the name of the
song or album.
3. The radio stations come in clear but show interference if the radio is next to a computer
or other electronic device.
Overall impression: I have a collection of more than 50 radios going back to the 1960''s. I have chosen the TR618
for everyday use because of its convenient features and powerful sound. This radio takes the
place of my 1980''s giant boombox which used cassettes. One 32 GB SD card play as many
songs as hundreds of my old cassettes or CD''s.
A big thank you to my wife for buying me this radio.

I don''t really write that many reviews. But to make people aware and be very clear I have posted photo of my install utilizing a google plug. Yes this is a very small radio and whoever guided me to tell me that a Google plug would not work. They are wrong since this has the old style power volume control- it will it will allow the radio to turn on and off from a distance, which is a great security device. If you''re looking for quality of sound I wouldn''t look to this radio it does not provide good quality sound. The 1 radio speaker very small and only operate in mono sound. The signal seems to be fairly good overall, however the short wave feature I find to be useless. I was actually hoping for a weather radio feature but can not figure out how exactly to tune that in - if anyone knows??? I don''t agree with all the high ratings on this radio, because I have owned some very awesome Sears brand boom boxes that had TV channels- weather radio and great stereo sound. With digital sound now out there needs to be an upgrade on this model. I am giving this radio a fair 3 out of 5. Please check my photos out, I took time to help and guide others so please if you know the answer to my question above, take a moment to reply! ~thanks

This radio blew me away. Really! I''m getting channels in the day time as far away as 200 miles. Stations I can''t get at night on my other radios. As far as short wave ? Tonight will tell the tale but I''m pretty sure I won''t be dissapointed. Forget my bad spelling but don''t underestimate this little radio. I watched and listened to reviews both negative and positive for months before buying this set. At 48.00 it''s a bit pricy but I think it will prove to be worth it. It runs odd a.c. cord included plus D batteries not included. That''s one thing that drew me in. Most SW radios seem to be rechargeable and THATS nice but if you have no power and it goes down your stuck. With this you can put in New batteries if needed. Or as I do just plug it in and enjoy. I highly reccomend this radio to anyone. It has features like sb card and mp3 which I''ll never use but they are nice to have. This is my second retekess brand radio and it''s like the first. Top shelf quality at a middle shelf price. If your on the fence I''d say give it a try. Reception is subjective as to where your located and I''m in a poor area for radio. Right now it''s 1:50 pm. I''m listening to Oklahoma City on am and I''m in eastern Kentucky! As for shortwave. I''ve tried for a few night and it''s not verry good. It could be conditions or maybe my location but I''d have to say if your looking for primary shortwave set this is not the one. Other than that it''s fine

This radio has a very nice sound and plays extremely loud if you turn up the volume. FM stations are very, very clear, the AM stations, not so much, and short wave is non-exsistant where we live (rural area). I tested the usb with mp3''s on it, and it plays beautifully. Too bad the controls are so cheaply made. Compare it to our radio controls in the U.S...no comparison...U.S. wins hands down. The selection knobs should be bigger, and the text for selections could be more outstanding/larger. Also, the selection knobs as they are now, makes it difficult to know what you selected as there is no "click" when you''re at a selection, if that makes any sense. There are 2 of these knobs, one goes left or right for radio or usb selection, which is easy enough. The other knob goes left, middle, or right for FM, AM, or SW. If the seller improved the controls, this radio would be worth the $50, right now, no. Despite this, I decided to keep it since I bought it for my mother. She is happy with it, and just wanted a small radio. The size and weight are perfect for her, and she keeps the radio on her nightstand. Takes 3 D batteries or plug in to electical outlet. Either way, the radio plays well. Tuning the radio is easy for mom since it''s just turning the knob and listening for stations. The size of the radio station numbers are large enough to read, but it''s not necessary to read it because the volume can be really loud, and just listening for stations works well for her because she is hard of hearing. I''d buy one for myself, but not until they make improvements with the controls, or lower the price. My mother is not as picky as I am.

You''ll hear on the video that after <3 months of having this radio (in case of emergency), which worked when I got it but does not work now for no apparent reason. It''s too late for me to get my money back. Less than 3 months is a pretty short window of return for a mechanical item, especially one intended for use in an emergency *given that it has short wave, etc.* Buyer beware from this disreputable seller. The body of the radio is exceedingly cheap and a 6-month-old could probably lift it.

A Really Nice Radio!.
A Fine Product, And A Top Quality Purchase!
Its getting really hard to find a ''really nice'' quality shortwave radio as a reasonable price!.
LIKES:
The right size Not too big , Or too Small!.....
Very,Very Nice Price!.
Good Reception on all bands!.
Picks up pretty good on SW Bands too!.
DISLIKES:
Its ''So Good'' its hard to find fault, but a couple of Teeny Things!.
Thing i miss most on Modern Radios this one too is no ''Soft Leather'' case for use/traveling!.
I miss the folding base the old travel radios had, But the flip side is this radio is large enough
to also use as a desktop, Or bookshelf radio in a den, Or office sic!...

OTHERWISE:
Reception is really pretty good, And I like the new feature where you can insert a USB or Stick Drive with preloaded Music/Audio. To listen both to favorites or if you are far away from home.....
Tips an Tricks:
Like many people who live on the outer-edge of a big city, SW Reception can be spotty at times so just a few tips?.
You almost always get better reception in the evening or P.M. Hours when stations can run at full strength.
My Experiences:
You need to really be careful and use a Fine touch in tuning for Foreign Broadcasts!.
Upstairs reception is usually better as in Basements/Cellars you usually cant pick up good.
On this one I had to move it around a bit, And It picks up a lot better by placing it by a window!.
Also florescent lights, Wifi routers, and cordless phones can affect these too so keep them apart.
I also remembered the old trick of placing a small ball of Aluminum/Tin foil on the tip of the Antenna.
It really helps to bring in some stations better .

Ok to close let me finish by saying its a Good Radio, A quality item and I got it at at great price.
Shipping was reasonable and delivery was fast!...
Kudos to the Seller for Low Price!.
Kudos to Amazon for a Good Item!.
A Happy Customer:

This is an excellent tabletop radio that''s portable enough to carry anywhere to listen. D batteries and AC cord options make it versatile. The Micro/SD and USB slots (all 3) are very nice. Sitting near an exterior wall of my house, and near a window, it tunes in SO MUCH MORE than I can tune in any of my cars or other tuners in the house (AM and FM). Shortwave is usable with the telescopic antenna, but a long-wire out the window really makes it come alive. Of course, time of day, weather, other factors influence SW more than AM and FM. It also picks up stations that overlap, and it''s possible to tune them sometimes better when coming from either side of that frequency (sweeping from R to L or L to R on the dial back and forth VERY slowly, I find I can tune some stations in better when they''re close to others). For Shortwave, there is a TON of frequency space jammed into one little dial (some radios have 8-12 separate bands on a switch, but here, there''re all on the same single dial) - PREPARE TO TUNE VERY S L O W L Y, or you''ll miss stations. This isn''t difficult though.

Sound quality is very nice. It''s won''t reproduce deep bass, and it doesn''t have screaming highs. It won''t shake the table, or itself much for that matter, but sounds full and will play loud enough to fill a room for all in it to hear. It won''t shake the walls, and is certainly no boombox.

Pros:
- D Batteries and AC option
- mp3/wma compatibility, 32GB max card size for SD/MicroSD
- Very selective and sensitive tuner
- Controls are easy to read, use, and have a positive feel.
- Decently long telescoping antenna, feels sturdy and heavier than some smaller radios
- Great sound for all day listening, music, talk radio, background, but can be increased to fill a room so others can hear too.

Cons:
- Handle feels cheap - very thin plastic, but heavy enough to do the job. Doesn''t feel like it''s going to break.
- The display only works in mp3/USB mode.
- The light stays on all the time in mp3/USB mode. This will reduce battery life
- The tuner has an odd gain control function where a station will be faint, but then get a lot louder all of a sudden. This really isn''t a bad thing, but it takes getting used to. It doesn''t tune like a completely manual tuner since it''s DSP.

I''d recommend this radio to anyone looking to get a functional, easy to use, solid radio that''s easy to move around and sounds decent for low to medium listening volume either close up or from across a room.

This radio is far more user friendly than I expected.

There is nothing that I disliked about it. I was pleasantly surprised at it efficency. I put all my music on flash drive and this radio plays it with very good sound and still functions as an awesome radio.

Good for the price

Good sound on AM and FM, seems to lock in on all the local stations well. Haven''t spent much time with the Shortwave band yet, so can''t really comment on it. Would have been nice if the LED readout gave a frequency readout, but I guess that would have increased the price.

Nice portable radio

We do not use the batteries. The sound is good enough for us on the deck, clear sound on am and fm. It''s very loud for such a compact radio.
