- Small, portable
- Power cable stores inside the radio
- Works great on batteries
- Nice and loud
- Simple to use
- Minor con, but the power switch and volume dial are separate.
This ICF-38 overall reception is good for me on FM and AM. I can even pull in some stations that I normally can not so that's at least good. I like the power supply built in also. I might have to get creative and buy another OEM speaker for this ICF-38 and replace it with something more full sounding...
2.5 star is my rating.
-AC or DC
They are just minor...
-No option for 220 volt switch
-Can run only 110 volts
-Power cord is too tight inside battery compartment (So I left it tied outside when not in use)
-Headphone output is just MONO (it isn't a deal-breaker).
Overall I am satisfied with this radio and I might be buying another one in the future.
Conclusion: If you want a basic AC or DC powered radio, analog, cheap and has good reception without spending time to learn a lot, this is for you. I am satisfied! BUY it, and enjoy it for years with minimal energy consumption (Around $3 a year when used 12 hours per day on AC).
I had always been pleased with Sony products in the past and this little radio did not disappoint. It is small, lightweight and can be played using batteries or plugged into the mains. The tone is pretty good too given the size of the speaker and the radio as a whole.
My Grand-daughter and her whole family are so pleased with it that it is in permanent residence in the kitchen.
The only worry I had was that the cable is packed very tightly into the back of the radio. Once taken out, I was concerned that I did not break the cover of the compartment trying to put it back in again for Christmas wrapping. Eventually I left the cable out rather than risk breaking the cover. Otherwise I was more than satisfied. Great value for the money and visually a pretty neat radio.
This one is bigger because it stores the line cord inside the unit. We use it on batteries so that its easy to carry around.
