    Very nice rig! And since it's an Icom, it must be really solid. It's priced a bit stiff for many Hams, however. 'Glad to see the selectivity is back up to snuff and equal to the significantly lower priced IC-7200. The 7300 lost 20dB in IF selectivity over the old(er) 7200. BTW- If the 7610 has such a great, larger display then why use the big monitors on the wall? Was that just for the video or is the op. visually impaired?

    I imagine the use of the monitors is just because you can with this rig. It is one of the differentiators over the 7300 which does not have a video out port.

    I think it would be terrible if the guys that want only knobs on their radios started wanting waterfall displays on their radios too. How are going to keep them down on the farm once they have seen Paris?

    Kind of like making customers pay extra for a mobile mounting bracket for a mobile radio. And extra for a control head mounting bracket. Extra for a mic extension cable. All at ridiculously high prices. I like Icom gear, I don’t like being nickeled and dime’d for items that other brands include with their rigs.

    Nice looking radio and hope its as good as it looks. Can't have everything, every radio brings something to the table different, all depends on what your needs and wants are. For those complaining about the price. Yes its a bit high, it should have come out at around $3600 but remember when the 7600 was released? Price is not much different and who ever said this hobby was cheep?? Can't afford it, then move on and get a CB. Don't judge people that can and will buy it.

    I must agree with n4dcd, although I am pro flex, there is quality in the 7610
    And as the saying goes " if you can't hang with the big dogs you might as well go play with the puppies"
