Highly Portable

The DT-220A is a small PLL-synthesized AM/FM stereo radio that's small enough to fit in a coat pocket, and powerful enough to pull in those distant AM/FM stations. It measures a mere 4.9 by 3 by 1 inches, and weighs only 6.1 ounces, making it portable enough to take anywhere.

Big Features

You get 25 memory presets (and auto scan) to help you zip right to preferred stations. The radio comes with stereo earbuds with a built-in auto-wind stereo earphone system, plus a removable belt clip. A stereo-mono switch improves reception when needed, and the built-in speaker affords headphones-free listening.

The DT-220A features a backlit LCD display with time and a programmable alarm. The adjustable sleep timer lets you listen or sleep in comfort.

Battery Powered with Auto Shut-Off

The Sangean DT-220A runs on two AA alkaline batteries or a standard AC adapter (not included). A low-battery indicator on the LCD display offers a helpful hint on when it's wise to carry replacements. 90-minute auto shut-off lets you fall asleep to the radio without fear of waking up to dead batteries.

HASH(0xa98868c4) out of 5 stars The holy grail of pocket radios! April 21 2004
By Ingles - Published on
Verified Purchase
Wow! This is what I have been looking for! A pocket radio with the following features: good reception, digital tuning, light, alarm, clock, presets, good speaker sound, fits in my pocket, has built in earbuds (that retract with a push of a button!), stereo FM when you use the earbuds (or your own headphones), lock switch, TV audio, built in telescoping antenna, auto turn off after 90 minutes (which you can easily cancel). This is a great radio, the best pocket radio with a built in speaker that I have seen. Sangean usually has terrible reception and their radios usually have a lot of noise between stations but this one receives and selects as well as my Sony! Definitely get this if you want apocket radio with a speaker!

HASH(0xa9342f6c) out of 5 stars Marco's Review Feb. 21 2004
By Marco - Published on
I have been on a quest for approximately 3 yrs. for a hand held radio with digital tuning. I also wanted one that allowed the versatility of a speaker and also headphones.The quest is over. the speaker on this radio is larger that those on other pocket Sangeans, so a little larger in size, and a lot better in sound. The FM reception is good on all stations with decent signal strength. On my favorite jazz station, a rather weak one, from a college, I must plug earphones into the jack, and it then becomes much better. Sangean has offered to send me a tailing lead antenna, at no extra charge, to remedy this problem.The radio also has a scoping antenna, which improves reception in many case, but is not even needed with stroner FM stations
Design and ease of use are excellent. You can literally hit the Band button to go from Fm to TV to Am. Presets were cake to program. With the exception of setting the alarm and the clock, most buttons have only one function. This avoids those nerve-racking instructionsi.e. hold this while pushing that, hit the button three times and then hit function twice.
All in all a beautiful find.

HASH(0xb5374e24) out of 5 stars I Take It Everywhere Feb. 29 2004

Since receiving my Sangean220V radio, I hate going anywhere without it, even into the next room! I love knowing I can flip it on to keep me company whenever I get bored or things too quiet. I don't want to damage the earbuds, so I leave them retracted and use a separate headset when I'm not using the speaker. Reception is great on this little dude, and I got an AC Adapter at Radio Shack so the radio can keep me company by playing all night. I spent some time with the manual, and as a result am able to pretty much do the controls in the dark! It does have a display light, a clock and an alarm, but I don't really use those. I just love having a little radio I can tune easily using the digital tuning, and listen to without having to plug up my ears. It's small and easy to take along. I love it, and want a spare!

HASH(0xa9873444) out of 5 stars Decent features, so-so quality April 14 2006
By SSL - Published on
I'm used to pocket radios being underwhelming, so I guess this model fits right in. The sound quality is like an inexpensive speakerphone, and is largely product of its size, so let's just cut the BS about great sound, eh? I searched and searched for one with TV band, and this one seemed to be rated best. First one I got had no audio unless I squeezed the case -> sent it back. Next one would turn itself on-and-off rapidly when I even touched the case. Decided to fix that myself rather than wait yet again for a return (I'm an audio/electrical engineer). The TV band always has a constant, annoying hum over the audio. Picks up stations decently for such a little radio though. No where near as well as CCRadios I own, though. Better than basic, Sony, consumer level portables, but that's not saying much. The short cord on the built-in ear buds is just long enough to reach a shirt pocket, but the radio is too big to fit in most shirt pockets, so they aren't much use. Battery life is pretty impressive for just running off two AA batteries. Since it's too big to fit in pocket anyway, I would have preferred extra weight/size of one more battery if it would increase run time or volume.

HASH(0xa956b6a8) out of 5 stars A good radio March 23 2005

I bought this for an elderly relative who listens to the radio in bed very often. He is very happy with the purchase.

The included retractable headphones are working well for him. There is a plug to use your own headphones as well. I'm glad this radio takes two AA's instead of AAA's, because AA's last longer.

One feature is especially useful. By default, the radio shuts off after 90 minutes. The person I bought it for regularly falls asleep with the radio on -- this feature saves battery life. If you don't like this feature, simply hold the power button down for a few seconds and it is disabled.

Holding down the up/down tuner button briefly will scan and stop at the next station. There are also 5 presets, actually 10 if you hold down a "+5 preset button", but really only 5 are user friendly for the elderly. That's 5 for each band -- am, fm, tv.

Reception is superior, that's why I bought it. He has to extend the antena to get a weak FM station, but that's expected. He likes the ability to listen to local broadcast TV stations.

Those who listen to radio quite often can justify the higher cost of this superior product. I recommend it.

Edit: A year after buying this, I bought a Sangean DT-180V.
This is a newer model without speaker not available on amazon yet, but should be soon. I think it is a better radio.
