Grundig Satellit 900. Grundig USA did continue the development of this set in collaboration with RL Drake Company and XM Satellite Radio.
The set was announced as the world's first radio that combines AM, FM, shortwave and XM Satellite radio reception in one ultra high-performance unit.

eton: E1 - XM; Satellite Radio klebrige Oberfläche
Roland Müller

Liebe Sammlerkollegen, zum Eton E1 möchte ich folgende Information bereitstellen:

mein E1-XM, gekauft 2008 in USA, wurde zunehmend "klebriger", d.h. die Oberfläche der Kunststoff-Gehäuseteile wurde zunehmend klebriger und erreichte in 2015 ein Maß, dass eine normaler Betrieb nicht mehr sinnvoll war. Die Kunststoffoberflächen des Gerätes waren bereits im Neuzustand beschichtet, vermutlich mit einer Lackierung ähnlich wie bei älteren Revox Geräten (Mattlack). Eine Suche in RMorg und im deutschsprachigen Raum verlief negativ, Hinweise im englischsprachigen Raum gibt es: und, Stichwort: Sticky case problem.

Mein Reinigungsversuch war erfolgreich. Aufwand ca. 3-4 Stunden, ca. 0,2 Liter Etylalkohol 96%, Zellstofftücher, Baumwoll Trikotagenstoff Größe min. DIN A5, Wattestäbchen (ca. 50 Stück), ggf. alte Zahnbürste.

Ablauf der Reinigung: Display abkleben mit Tesafilm (kein Billigprodukt verwenden), Wattestäbchen oder bei größeren Flächen Bürste mit wenig Alkohol anfeuchten und Oberfläche abreiben, Achtung: es darf keine Flüssigkeit in das Gehäuse laufen. Abgeriebenen Belag sofort mit einem Zellstofftuch aufnehmen. Nachreiben mit einem alkoholgetränkten Trigotagenstoff  bis eine glänzende Kunststoffoberfläche übrig bleibt.

Einzelne Gehäuseteile wie z.B. die XM-Antennenabdeckung oder die Klappe für die Batterien an der Front lassen sich leicht entfernen und sind so besser zu handhaben.

Achtung: keinen Spiritus verwenden (häufig vergällt mit Methyläthylketon) das führt unweigerlich zu Spannungsrissen an den Kunststoffteilen. Isopropanol sollte auch gehen, wurde hier aber nicht ausprobiert.

Positiv: Beschriftungen bleiben erhalten

Mit freundlichem Sammlergruß

Roland Müller

Fred Overbeek
  1 seen on Ebay, item nr 231680148428, grundig satellit 900. The question is: is it real or is it fake ? What do you all think, please let me know Thank you Greetings fred


Michael Watterson

There was a USA Grundig badged version of the Etón, the Sirus XM option only worked in USA of course.

It seems merely very much overpriced.

How would it be a fake?

Estoy ilusionado en regalarme este modelo de radio ( dicen que es el mejor enestos momentos) quiza la ultima creacion de la factoria grundig...

El problema ¿como no ? es el precio en España y Alemania esta en 600 € y sin embargo en USA esta incluido envio por la mitad.

Mi duda: La corriente electrica en USA creo recordar es de 60Hz  y en Europa 50 HZ . ¿me puede esto generar un problema o creeis que estos aparatos compensan estas diferencias?

  2 Hallo Luis,
sorry, my spanish as absolutely insufficient...
The set has been introduced around early 2006,
the design was based on a Grundig successor of the famous Satellit 700, but the Satellit 900 never saw it's light of birth.
After Grundig Germany ceased their activities, the US branch Grundig USA always reported to bring the Satellit 900 on the market, it took them a few years.
The set was redesigned, there is a rumour, Drake has been involved in the construction (some similarities to the SW-8), ans the set has been produced in India.
Because of name copyright reasons, in Europe, they couldn't use the Grundig name and changed to Eton.

The set appeared too late (after 2000), to be included in's database, it's a nice set though. Beware of early samples suffered from technical difficulties.

The set can be run - according to - from four D-cells, i.e. 6V and has no internal mains adaptor, so You would only have to buy an AC adaptor for your voltage here in Europe and You don't have to care about the 60 Hz. You can even order the whole set in Europe and will get a matching adaptor.
For further reading, You can get a receiver survey from NASWA under
Kind regards Martin

Hola Martin : Ya tengo la eton. es una buena radio,pero no tiene la solidez de la grundig.

han tenido problemas serios con las baterias que se calentaban con riesgo de explosion,de hecho el gobierno USA a ordenado la revision de unos seriales concretos.

Parece ser que la mia no tiene problemas.

Hello Martin: I already have the eton. it is a good radio, but it does not have the soundness of the grundig. they have had serious problems with the batteries that warmed up at the risk of explosion, in fact the government USA to arranged the review of a few concrete serials. It seems that mine has no problems. Greetings Luis.

  7 With all respect - every radio model is based on the history of a company.
Even if the company has no other history than "re-inventing the radio" (a joke?) at least the correct company name and address is required (not too much) to be put into the database.

Country: United States (to be selected of the list)
Company name and location*: etón (eton) Corporation; Palo Alto (CA)
Summary: etón Corporation, 1015 Corporation Way, Palo Alto, CA 94303

History: [extracted from, independent if it makes sense]

1986: Etón (then known as Lextronix) incorporates as the exclusive licensee of Grundig in North America. We are proud to offer televisions, radios, VCRs and more from this high-quality European brand.<br>
1989: The Satellit 650 and the Satellit 500, both portable shortwave radios, are launched to rave reviews by consumers.<br>
1990: The Traveller II, an AM/FM/shortwave radio with access to five shortwave bands, is launched. Its smaller size and alarm clock feature makes it perfect for world travelers.<br>
Early 1990s: Etón makes a strategic decision and decides to focus solely on Grundig shortwave radios. This proves to be a smart move, as Grundig by Etón now controls 65 percent of the American shortwave market.<br>
1993: The Satellit 700, another member of the popular portable Satellit line, is launched. It is still sought after by consumers today. Etón also launches the Grundig Yacht Boy 400, a small AM/FM/shortwave radio at an entry-level price point.<br>
1996: The first product of our partnership with FA Porsche, the Grundig G2000A, is launched with much acclaim.<br>
1999: We rebrand ourselves as Etón, and begin to offer a product line to complement our Grundig shortwave imports. One of our first Etón products is a curvaceous clock radio.<br>
2002: Etón’s innovative emergency radio launches. This self-powered radio operates with a few cranks of the handle, so consumers no longer need to rely on batteries or electricity for power.<br>
2005: Etón begins to form strategic partnerships with other well-respected brands. This year, we create alliances with XM satellite radio, SIRIUS satellite radio, and the American Red Cross.<br>
2006: Apple and Etón partner to create accessories for the best-selling Apple iPod. Etón combines its technological know-how and distinctive style to design accessories that complement the iPod and advance its functionality.<br>
2007: New Porsche Design by Etón products are scheduled to launch. These luxurious, meticulously-crafted radios are sure to satisfy even our most discerning customers.<br>

*) Many foreign companies are located "country-in-country" (which makes really no sense), or nowhere.

Any company is the basic headline for their models. If a company is set-up as a cripple fragment it will keep being fragmented to the eternity if nobody other take somtimes care of  - or not, as usual.

"Devil-may-care" is (in my humble opinion) the wrong attitude for participation on a work of reference.

That had to be said.

Kind Regards
Luis Bauza-Amoros
