Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Good radio. It can pick up stations within 120 miles.

Pros: Able to pick up distant radio stations.

Cons: Unless you have had this radio you will have a learning curve trying to operate it but once you learn it you will not want to give it up.

Great radio at an even better price!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Terrific multi-band radio at a great price. Audio quality is excellent for the price. This is my second Grundig, replacing a similar model that I had for 20+ years. It was going strong until I dropped it (heavily) on a tile floor. Crutchfield shipped quickly and communicated as needed. Also, I appreciate the use of biodegradable shipping peanuts. Thanks for a great experience!

Pros: Audio quality, functionality, design

Cons: Setting the presets can be frustrating

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This radio is very difficult to use. Not user friendly at all.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great radio, has a great sound. The design is beautiful and it will be easy to put in my luggage as it weights less than 1 lb. It is not easy to learn how to operate all the features. I think It will take many hours of trial and error to finally be comfortable using it. Also, why don't you sell the AC 6V adapter with it? It took a lot of time searching where to buy it. M



Excellent radio! Wish it had preset buttons

Kathy from Pittsburgh, PA on 5/26/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Absolutely outstanding radio. Great sound, lovely leather travel cover, substantial feel. A bit clumsy to navigate at first (what happened to BUTTONS?), but the quality of the piece overrides the confusing operation.

Pros: Portability, sound, leather cover

Cons: Non-intuitive operation for pre-sets

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Excellent radio that does it all.

Pros: Received AM/FM and Shortwave

Cons: None


Hands-on research

Product Research


Executive Traveler III: The Grundig Executive Traveler III is an AM/FM/Longwave/Shortwave Radio with ATS (Auto Tuning Storage) and RDS (Radio Data System). It comes with a stitched leather travel wallet.

AM/FM/LW/SW: The Executive Traveler III receives every radio wavelength - including AM(MW), FM, Longwave (LW) and Shortwave (SW) - at home or abroad. It is easy to set the station spacing and frequency so your stations will come in loud and clear wherever you are. You now can keep up with the latest news and information from anywhere in the world.

RDS (Radio Data System): The Executive Traveler III radio features RDS for FM. RDS stands for Radio Data System and it enables FM broadcasters to deliver more than just an analog audio signal, but also to transmit digital data, like the station's call letters, style of music, song title, artist and more.

Internal & External Antennas: When listening to AM stations, simply rotate the radio for the best reception, thanks to the internal antenna. For enhanced FM and SW reception, simply pull up the telescoping antenna. 

Manual or Auto Tuning: The Grundig Executive Traveler III offers manual and auto tuning. You can store up to 500 memory presets.

LCD Screen: You'll see your selected station in high-contrast, bright orange on the front-panel LCD screen.

Mono Speaker & Headphone Jack: The Grundig Executive Traveler III is outfitted with a mono-speaker. When you want to listen to the radio privately, just plug in a set of headphones (sold separately) to the unit's 3.5mm headphone jack. The radio's speaker is muted when headphones are plugged in.

Clock, Alarm & Timer: With local and world time settings, radio and buzzer alarm clock settings, sleep timer (1-120 min) and snooze light, the Executive Traveler III keeps you in time from any time zone. And if you want to prevent the radio or alarm from turning on all together, just hit "Lock".

Temperature Display: The Grundig Executive Traveler III even displays the temperature to help you prepare for the day.

AC or Battery Powered: The Grundig Executive Traveler III can be powered by 4 "AA" batteries or a 6V DC adapter (both sold separately).
