I guess I'll post this in both forums...

I travel just about every day and I'm fed up with always having to try and find music I like...Switching FM stations because of limited reception.

I don't travel by car so I need a portable (With Speaker or speakers) so I don't have to use headphones.

Which one of the two competitors offer the best portable reception, I would be able to use an external antenna with a magnate for true portability.

I would prefer something lightweight, small (one speaker would be enough) not really after a big boom-box, something I can throw in my grip.

How do you travel?

Both companies have boom boxes, but if you travel by mass transit, I seriously doubt they'd work, or anyone on them would put up with it.

Freight not mass transit,,, Good guess!

I'm in the Locomotive with one other person.

I could put a magnate and attach the antenna to the out side of the cab.

I've seen most of what's available, what I need is info on which one works the best (Reception & sound of the boom-box)
