I'm going to be trying out an idea I have. Considering that Ni-Mh batteries are nominally 1.2V and this radio uses 4 D batteries, the radio...

The problem with the converters is that they just won't have the capacity of the D cells. AA and D cells are identical in terms of voltage,...

A steaming pile of shit compared to the Sangean. Tinny audio, terrible reception.

~~If it's any consolation, Tandy apparently still has it for $49...~~ Nope, sold out too

Still available from the Dick Smith site directly.

The AC-DC power supply is integrated into the unit with one of those figure 8 connectors, so you'll probably need to run 6 volts into the...

I just bought a second one in case of emergency because this is such a good deal

That crystal clear digital radio sound will be a nice little luxury while hunkering in your bunker for two weeks after a nuclear holocaust.

This can only receive domestic broadcasts - AM, FM or DAB+. There's no shortwave or internet radio options.

One of the perks of having to transport your disabled brother around is the free parking :)

[Here's a photo of my original DAB+ car setup when I had just gotten my learner's permit in 2010. I bought this shitty DAB+ radio at Big W...

The ship has long sailed for that kind of RDS in Australia. Its only real purpose these days is to provide a label on the presets in car...
24/04/2017 - 20:03 This is a video of the unit receiving German DAB radio. To my ears, it sounds like the speakers...

Based on reviews I've read, it looks likely that if you're in a poor reception area you'll get better reception with this radio than others...

Make sure you pop it in a toolbox or wrap it in aluminium foil to deflect the electromagnetic pulse.

You'd need 27 AA batteries to cover the equivalent of 4 D cell batteries.

I've updated the post with your suggestion. Now I can spend that 48 cents on a soft serve.
24/04/2017 - 18:04
I don't believe it does, but this thing can pick up incredibly weak signals very well. Trawling the AM band will probably get you some...

The DPR-44 does RDS as well, but they haven't put the logo on the radio (perhaps because of licensing?). RDS is the broadcasting standard...

Sangean pumps out some good quality radios, but I agree - I wouldn't spend 200 bucks on it. Perhaps that's why Kogan is trying to clear...
