    Still no remote head capability? That's a deal killer for me.

    CS800d has the remote head.

    You're both correct. The MD9600 doesn't have a remote head, while the CS800D does. Though I am told that the CS800D is deaf on VHF. I have a test model that I will be reviewing soon

    Just purchased the TYT MD-2016 (Model 3) and I am very disappointed with the general lack of quality control.

    Besides having an entire column of dead pixels on the display, my radio is selectively deaf. After running several comparison tests, my MD-380 and 390 consistently decode any transmission, while the 9600 fails to do so and will show zero signal strength. When it does decode (after just turning it ON or sporadically at-will), it will show full signal strength as expected. All three radio receive the same transmissions from my OpenSpot, which is across the room.

    I will be sending the radio back.
