Whether you're camping, in an emergency situation, traveling, or comfortably at home, Sangean's DT-220A digital pocket radio offers excellent sound with exceptional AM/FM reception. Never worry about forgetting or losing your headphones--the DT-220A has retractable earbuds that cleverly and automatically retract into the radio case when not being used. In addition, the DT-220A offers many features not found on most pocket radios such as clock, separate headphone jack, backlight, alarm with wake-up buzzer, auto shut-off and many other convenient features.
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.
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.
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.
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.
