From Thomas over at the SWLing Post comes news that Tecsun may be releasing a new receiver next year, the S-8800. This appears to be based, case-wise, on their BCL-3000. Perhaps it’s a BCL-3000 with PL-880 innards, who knows. No-one seems sure at the moment but it will be worth watching.
For what it’s worth, I think Tecsun would find a good market for a desktop receiver, rather than yet another portable. For a price point of say £250-300 with all the bells and whistles would certainly get me interested. A challenger to something like the Comm RAdio CR1-A. I guess at the moment they feel the portables market is more lucrative.
