  • Etón Mini 400: July 14, 2014 ($39 US)
  • Etón Field: July 21, 2014 ($129 US)

    I’ve been looking forward to the release of the Eton FRX5, which I believe is being released in July. No clue on any official dates though.

    Looks like they have updated the price for the Satellit to $229.

    Just FYI Thomas, I sent Eton an email in late May asking when the Satellit would be available to buy and the response I received back on May 29 was the Satellit would be available to buy in late July from retailers. The email was from the Operations Coordinator so I guess the release date has been pushed. Will you be reviewing the Satellit?

      Hi, Steve,

      Yes–I think the date was moved back a tad.

      I’m sure I’ll get a Satellit to try, but I don’t know if I will review it. I feel like it’s a conflict of interest (at least a perceived one) after Eton started supporting my non-profit. Their CEO is now a good friend–he’s an amazing philanthropist and a great guy. Truly genuine fellow.

      He could care less if I review it–he’s a big believer in speaking your mind–but I might simply post others’ reviews. I may very well do an overview and/or post some recordings. I expect it’ll be a good rig.

      Cheers,
      Thomas

    I hope someone reviews the Satellit soon after release. Looks like a nicely designed radio from the picture and specs. Wondering how it will perform compared to the 750.

    Have you by chance received any updated availability for the Mini? Looks like the Mini may have been pushed. The only place I see the Mini listed is on the LL Bean website and they show it being available on Aug 16.
