I have had two of these radios and both have the same fault. When listening to the speaker the sound should be true mono but in fact it is just the left channel when listening to a stereo broadcast. Listening on headphones gives the correct stereo sound. This suggests a problem between the headphone jack and the speaker. I am a rock music fan and the fault is quite clear when listening to songs that I know have stereo effects like Money by Pink Floyd. If vocals are on the right channel e.g. Elected by Alice Cooper or some harmonies in Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen you can't hear them.

Has anyone else noticed this. I have verified the fault on other stations so it must be the radio. For it's size, the sound quality from the radio is fine and I am disappointed that I will have to return the unit for a refund.
