I remember the first time I saw 2001D in 2003, nearly 70 keys covered the entire panel of the machine, angular lines, and both reveal the professional, the professional is the 2001D to my first impression. At that time the understanding of the 2001D is not much, just know that this is a product released in 1985, in Japan’s version of JE Model 2001D, the region outside of Japan for the 2010 model, both in appearance is There is no difference, but only whether there are differences within the company to know the SONY. 2001D is then rage, SW77 past life, SW77 greatly based on the circuit in which most of the human functional design, but built on the SW77 much less than 2001D keys to despair, although more can and know that a key This key combination settings reflect greater ability to optimize the design. At that time did not understand the aging faster than cell phone radio, television and other electronic products more slowly, feeling 20 years ago, a machine designed circuits, components and functions to set the degree of modernization is certainly not worth attention, combined sales were still in SW77, it has not been seriously to learn more about it.

    After that, slowly the 2001D from a few forum posts and a few bigwigs essence of the usual few words learned, it is the first built-SYNC (synchronous detection) of the civil radio, is the first full The high-end digital tuning radio, is a top-level performance to the radio, especially in the AM sensitivity reached a high level, which is a big brother to get a number of respected high-end radio. Slowly, I began to pay attention to it, but this time 2001D has long been discontinued in 2000, is already in the market can not buy a new machine. Because of financial limitations, and their products from the heart of second-hand do not like, while at the forum also extremely difficult to encounter by serial number, the fineness of nearly new, perfect condition complete set of machines, it has not been able to and 2001D affinity meet, let alone a long time accompanied by a. But the heart of its message of hope in the general kind of beating, I remember one time had also set my PC desktop, the 2001D.

    Recently had a chance to get occasional “99 into a new, perfect condition, 300,000 number” (on home made) and 2001D, and finally had the opportunity to experience this “SONY sequence of the most popular, influential, is the most likely to continue S700 after a collection of fans eager to collect price than selling price of the machine. ”

68 keys covered the entire panel, angular lines, dark metal panels and dark gray aluminum shell, and both reveal a professional

2001D angular lines, temperament, good health, style and contemporary design EX5 similar, but thinner thickness of 10mm. The machine is not set handle, use the strap to carry, easy to press when, after the usual holding support plate, support plate after the other makes up. ABS plastic shell, the front panel baking poor, easily in use makes the corners of paint wear. Key parts of the black paint using a metal panel material, supplemented by 67 rectangular or square button, cold tough, professional temperament ready to come out. Embedded in the upper part of the machine two rectangular LCD screen displays the time left for a short block, block of the right to receive display, LCD screen with green backlight, brightness is more bleak. Built-in 10 LED display signal strength and remaining battery BATTERY CHECK [], this intensity ratio LCD display integrated display is undoubtedly easier to see more prominent, especially in the dark of night, like beating the red wizard. On the back of the materials and processes is clearly more than the front panel, feel worse, but I do not know or post the original precision abrasive deformation, appear slightly uneven surface. The back of the set can pull a piece of plastic blocks can be stored in units or other information written on a sticker stuck in the plastic plate.
Do not mind the back of the design

2001D uses two AA batteries to power the machine clock and memory, which makes the machine a long time away from the main power supply (battery or AC and DC) can save the relevant settings, this design should praised! While using three No. 1 receiver battery to power the host, this is a strange design! When using batteries or power adapter of course, every problem, even low-voltage design can save power, but the use of rechargeable battery 1 when in trouble, while only the first Charger to 2 or 4 batteries, and charging time is longer This time you need to purchase two rechargeable battery charger 6, and will undoubtedly increase the post-investment. However, the use of turn 1, Battery 5 a barrel, the four 5 rechargeable battery placed in the three battery barrel, which addresses the problem of singular cells, but also provides 4.8V power supply voltage (rated input voltage is 4.5 machine V), which is a good choice. It is worth mentioning that, 2001D considerable power, 3 has been shown in E1XM low voltage warning on alkaline batteries, 2001D in 13 hours, [BATTERY CHECK] shows the remaining 60% capacity, and just totally implantable machine the same. Top left panel [POWER] toggle switch, the machine control circuit power supply and the receiver clock. But in the bottom left side of the machine has a toggle switch [MAIN POWER], the second control circuit to receive power, that is required to boot listen to poke [POWER] and [MAIN POWER] switch, so the design of unique and troublesome to me received a bit of the machine caused by obstruction, double-check before boot, do not know whether the design can save power consumption? Perhaps it is because the machine clock, memory and power supply separation design to receive relevant now!
Machines do not provide FM signal attenuation adjustment to rely on the whip antenna or external antenna to receive signals to adjust the regulation. FM auto scan [SCAN] sensitivity set too high, all out of the whip antenna, strong local search platform, such as traffic music station 100.3MHz, 2001D can not directly scan to 100.3, but within a certain range on both sides continue to pause, said search signal, the broadcast content is exactly the same; to recover the rod antenna, the situation has improved. Long whip antenna 6 118cm, the top antenna is more thick, the diameter of the third quarter the equivalent of other machines antennas, tic smooth, contemporary EX5 with the rod antenna is similar.

    Frequency adjustment knob design Kent SATELLIT portable machine with sequence similarity, embedded in the top right side, flush with the side. Knob diameter of 4cm, outer black plastic, the inside diameter smaller silver metallic material, color and shape of the knob makes the machine with parts look very very professional impact, the designer reveals the high taste. Knobs feel smooth, damping is extremely small, accurate positioning, rotation is moving, then just stop, and built-in [FAST / SLOW / CLOSE] toggle switch. When the knob is not turned off, holding the machine from side to touch the knob can easily listen to the frequency change.

Most visual impact of the frequency adjustment knob

Built-in 68 keys and 5 toggle switches (POWER, MAIN POWER, TUNE, TONE, AM ATT), for almost every function and operation are set up a special key. 4 built-in auto-off time set button, 4 button auto-boot configuration, storage memory 32 (band / meter band) button, AIR, FM, AM, WIDE, NARROW, SYNC, USB, LSB / CW independent election set button. At the same time setting a second function key [SHIFT], can be combined to bring up the second part of the key functions. Key key-way long, and SW77 similar, but the key paragraph raised higher, the operation feel better.

Lack of manual, and explore some of the methods of operation, some friends want to help.

2001D built-in 4-inch speaker, sound quality is still the typical characteristics of SONY chilly, but the performance of some nausea, smaller diameter, smaller than the SW77 full performance of pure clear, relatively speaking, in addition to a large volume of some foreign nothing memorable. Set (NEWS / LOW / HIGH) third gear equalizer, NEWS / LOW tight bass treble file closed, too boring, affecting intelligibility; HIGH file appears to be chilly and sweet, but the volume is large, break the sound larger . And SW77, as have pushed the volume-adjustment method, compared to conventional volume control knob, the small volume of fine-tuning when the step is very difficult.

2001D is the first built-in sync detector (SYNC) civilian radio, and two embedded in the panel SYNC LED to display the UPPER / LOWER file selection, and EX5 similar, in fact, strictly speaking, 2001D and EX5 is the first generation of built-in sync detector (SYNC) civilian radio. This is a first-world machines, to achieve a true USB / LSB, but the machine did not design independent of SSB selection buttons, but to provide a USB / LSB button. FM performance is not at hand a prominent machine can not assess the performance of the 2001D, the only certainty is its sensitivity, selectivity and image rejection to be a lot stronger than the GR. SONY FM sensitivity and selectivity of more than man has been accused of, unfortunately, has not used a FM powerful machine. And HAM2000 and GR in contrast, the use of the native rod antenna and the battery fully charged, 2001D ability to fully reveal the AM DX is no doubt that it received half of the remote weak signal, no signal in HAM2000 basically signs, of course, these signals are mostly weak signal indication, and can not distinguish between language and content. However, there are a few frequencies in the 2001D can hear barely hear clearly on the content, although the language did not understand. Reception in weak signal on, 2001D bottom noise suppression performance is better, of course, can not rule out HAM2000 volume benchmark higher factors. However, the strong station reception on, HAM2000 signal is more stable performance, lower noise floor also. In contrast, GR’s performance is more weaker. Three-machine performance only applies to native rod antenna, this is not to compare the performance of external antennas, but according to people evaluation, HAM2000’s performance is undoubtedly better, which also designed to fully comply with, after all, a receiver HAM2000 foundation. These results can not rule out the interference of the mirror, but, so simple, 2001D is still worthy of the king with the AM DX Wang Mian!

Shiny, heart Cang cool 2001D

In 2001D/2010 series production during the 16 years, produced a total of about 41 million units (some say 350,000), but the impression I feel like I’ve seen the serial number No. 410000. No. 300,000 of this be in the latter part of the machine serial number, but the information provided in accordance with friends, this is a production of products with 90-91 years, according to this for 18 years, and now the machine appear more than second-hand market number is 10-30 million range, the latter part of the product is extremely difficult to encounter. Although, 2001D/2010 use of capacitors and other components are long life and stable quality products, keep the machine in the state over an extended period, but after all, are the most 2001D/2010 20-year-old has a machine, aging and quality issues are also a concern. In the high-end market, the younger generation is already a lean old, can only rely on previous generations of these machines has long been discontinued in the secondary market, in top of helmet han PK battlefield strikes, it is not only my generation (especially the younger generation) lovers sorrow, JJ, if they have lives, they looked Luo Ji’s origin will feel sad, just like this 2001D, although the glossy surface, the inner reality desolation.

Uncle Hong Kong to provide the serial number and production of 2001D/2010’s table, but the curve is between 89-91 every year a bit steep?
