The Sangean have been getting accolades for many years. That's the radio to make your comparisons to, in the small-portable-inexpensive realm.

You can also websearch HAM and "DX" etc. forums, etc. for such discussions and 'comparisons', etc. A start for such info as I already listed is: History

Better yet stop in at your local HAM Radio Outlet store and take a test drive the models that they have on hand and ask questions...

..like trying on a pair of shoes..see what feels comfortable. Who knows maybe 'someone' might learn something...
