About the same on both but again the audio quality of the PL-880 is better.
If you want ultimate FM sensitivity and selectivity in a Tecsun radio
then forget about both these models and go for the new S-8800.

hi you may have already answered this.
But how is the 660 on f.m and the 880 on the same?

Well you're going to have to make a few decisions as to which radio
you buy, all Tecsun radio sets have pros and cons.
The Synchronus detection is better on the PL-660 however sideband is
far better on the PL880.
On the PL-880 Sideband can be tuned in steps of 10KHZ which makes for
very accurate recognition of signals whereas with the PL-660 you have
to use a BFO control which drifts and requires fine adjustment, in
other words its the sort of thing one wouldn't expect on a modern
radio of today, something you found on radios 40 years ago.
Even though the PL-660 has the better sync I'd still go and buy the
Tecsun PL-880 or even consider the new Tecsun S-8800.
Both the PL-880 and S-880 have far better sound than the Tecsun PL-660.
The S-8800 has - overall - better sensitivity on all bands than any
other Tecsun radio I've tried.
Sideband on the S-8800 has the same sort of tuning as found on the
Tuning on the S-8800 is silky smooth with that perfect "analogue
tuning" feel, the S-8800 comes with a handy remote control which
controls most functions.
The manual for the S-8800 is very well written.

I am thinking about purchasing either the PL 660 or the PL 880.
do you have any comments about the sideband reception in the
synchronous to text you on the 660 versus the 880?

If I recall correctly there is a list member who is looking for
information on buttons and controls for his Tecsun PL-660 radio.
A document has been released by Tecsun Radio Australia to aid Blind
users of this radio and I link to it thus.
