Degen 1103 and SONY SW40Degen 1103 and SONY SW40 2 Degen 1103 and SONY SW40 3 Degen 1103 and SONY SW40 4 

Degen’s DEDE1103 hand nearly two months, always want to have more than 5 years with the use of the SONY ICF-ICF-SW40 over it. SONY ICF-SW40 is the company’s products a decade ago, with the market near DE1103 than just a little “Guangong zhan qin qong ”feeling, but both are analog pointer plus the shuttle, which is no more similar than two , so let me put it between the two comparison.

1, the reception: this point is almost not comparable between the two, although both are used in the second amplitude modulation wave frequency technology, but both medium wave, short wave, long wave or FM, whether it is sound, tone or intelligibility , said the ICF-SW40 DE1103 play Mandizhaoya is not an exaggeration, the two can be said is not an order of magnitude.
In the reception on, DE1103 much win.

2 tuning methods: DE1103 There are four tuning methods – Shuttle tuning, memory tuning, direct frequency input tuning and automatic search tuning. ICF-SW40 are only two tuning methods – Shuttle tuning and memory tuning. As the ICF-SW40 is no direct input frequency tuning, when the want to tune to a known frequency ICF-SW40 is much slower than the DE1103. In addition, DE1103 can remember 255 radio stations, and ICF-SW40 only memory 20 radio stations.
In tuning the way, DE1103 far won ICF-SW40.

3, the backlight function: DE1103 uses automatic backlight, that is, when turn on the backlight, as long as the shuttle move or a key is pressed, the backlight automatically turns on 15 seconds, while the ICF-SW40 using the manual backlight is not very convenient to use .
In the backlighting on, DE1103 much better than the ICF-SW40.

4, SSB function: DE1103 with a whip antenna that comes with a strong can clearly receive SSB station, ICF-SW40 is no such function.

5, the volume adjustment method: DE1103 uses 64 electronic volume, adjust the volume available Shuttle can also be directly input level. Its main advantage is that the volume can be accurately adjusted, and adjust the volume will not produce noise, durable, convenient to adjust the volume disadvantage, need both hands. ICF-SW40 is used in traditional potentiometer to adjust the volume, the advantage of easy adjustment, in line with the majority of people are used, the disadvantage is used to adjust the volume in a period of time will produce intolerable noise.
Volume adjustment, two different, equally matched.

5 sub functions: ⑴ DE1103 uses a rechargeable battery and intelligent charging, charging time is adjustable, and can be listened to charge the battery. ICF-SW40 does not have the charging function; ⑵ DE1103 with the AM band signal strength indication, ICF-SW40 is no such function. ⑶ in time to open, shutdown, sleep, shutdown, process sensitivity, easy to set distance between the two comparable. ⑷ DE1103 with an external antenna jack, use an external antenna to improve reception of AM signals; with a line input jack, can be easily connected with the amplifier. ICF-SW40 is no antenna jack, do not have a line output.

6, shuttle: DE1103 uses a high-speed automatic transmission Shuttle, the main advantage is a significant tuning speed. Drawback is obvious, because the shuttle fast, easy to make adjustments too, to be repeated many times, careful adjustment of the job, the impression is often haste makes waste. DE1103 the shuttle except for tuning, but also have to adjust the memory units, set the time, adjust the volume, set the battery charging time, set the sleep time and other functions, just as the shuttle for the minor, slow to adjust the The function can be, somewhat biased chickens slaughtered chopper with the feeling, but could easily lead to adjustment of excessive speed, it is difficult the first place.
ICF-SW40 is used in the Shuttle-speed, high tuning speed is lower than in the DE1103. But the advantage is due to a slower pace, generally will not adjust too much. In addition, ICF-SW40 slow to make up for the lack of the shuttle, with NORAML / FINE FINE toggle switch — When in the state, in short steps of 1K / step, FM for the 50K / step; When in NORMAL state, the Polish step for the 9K / step, short of 5K / each step, frequency of 100K / step. In most cases, so you can use NORMAL, one can increase the tuning speed of the shuttle, not on the one hand, the stop position are all radio frequencies, not cause I do not know when I do not know the correct frequencies to stop the problem at that frequency. In addition, ICF-SW40’s Shuttle in memory tuning, time to adjust, sleep time setting so it is convenient.
As the ICF-SW40 DE1103 than the shuttle and the shuttle slightly larger damping, using the pit design, it has to adjust feel good, easy to adjust, adjust and easy to do once in place, a slight vibration will not run Taiwan, etc., because there are two step tune speed options, make it more user-friendly. So ease of use on the Shuttle, DE1103 far as ICF-SW40.
In addition, ICF-SW40 is much higher than the reliability of the shuttle the shuttle DE1103. The ICF-SW40 I use more than 5 years also all normal, DE1103 Shuttle’s time to failure is much shorter than the ICF-SW40, which is a major shortage of domestic machine.

7, the liquid crystal analog hands: DE1103 AM, FM and 10 shortwave bands are a more accurate simulation using a pointer, for the cause of its large LCD screen, you can put the location of small buttons, buttons too small, too small, resulting in composite key too much, ease of use is poor, especially the volume adjustment buttons and no separate sets of implicit memory has been strongly criticized the design area.
ICF-SW40 AM and FM only two waves estimated using a more accurate simulation of the pointer, only 10 short-wave band indication, so the LCD screen is much smaller than the DE1103.
Seen in simulations using the pointer to the actual time is not much, ICF-SW40 can basically meet the requirements of the instructions, DE1103 LCD pointer a little too extravagant.
