    a little survey,
    which do you prefer on your radios.
    i prefer the Knobs but i also like the tube type radios so i am biased.

    I'm trying to figure out which would be better on Vanna.

    Buttons are okay but nothing beats a nice set of knobs. The bigger, the better.

    Knobs..... definately..... and of course,the bigger ,the better!!

    pushbuttons never make it on any radio...... it's the knobs!! :)

    Call me old fashioned, but nothing beats a big old tuning knob. You can have all the direct access buttons and up/down tuning, if you want good tuning, nothing beats a knob, especially a vernier.

    I think a slider like the IPODS might be better than a knob. I would like a touch screen if done correctly.

    Knobs....but I have been known to push some buttons.

    Push buttons are for pussies. Nothing beats the thrill of giving well balanced knobs a good twist.

    Heavily weighted knobs with a hefty flywheel.

    I miss the feel of spinning a tuning knob on a flywheel like those old high end tube recievers had.
    No keypads
    no freq entry buttons
    no multi layered menus
    no touch screens
    no slider pots
    on my radio !
    Please !
