Five-band receiver (FM/MW/SW1/SW2/SW3). Released at the peak of popularity in shortwave listening as the top "Skysensor" model. When simply listening to broadcasts was not enough, a bold design was chosen to encourage users to enjoy customizing the settings. The layout was now more functional, with controls arranged around a central dial. At the same time, the signature matte black finish of the series was updated to gunmetal gray.
