– Early products, the 1970s boutique Radio Sony ICF-5800
  I first met the ICF-5800 radio enthusiasts Association in March this year, altar Friends of the Pudong Zhang bring his beloved artifact, at first glance, the black and white, because all kinds of BCL models often seen in various forums, the hands of a TECSUN the BCL3000, however, really took it in the hands of play when I discovered it different –

  First, the rigorous workmanship, the materials used in full. The ICF-5800 volume is slightly smaller than BCL3000 component than it heavy. As the early 1970s, a production machine, the machine work is very strict, housing all engineering plastics, save so far no obvious bump or scratches around the front face with four stainless steel narrow strip for reinforcement. On both sides of the fuselage has two stainless steel straps bayonet, and is equipped with an adjustable leather strap. The antenna is the ejection of one meter long, enough to completely pull out.

Second, exquisite appearance, design of human nature. The front face of the ICF-5800 is very simple, the operating area above the bottom of a 4-inch speaker. Operation to distinguish between the left, third from right, left Area boot dial twisting the dial lamp dial twisting and volume, bass and treble control knob;

Area in the dial and tuning Shuttle (with the speed, feel smooth) Curtain dial, rotating the Jog pointer does not move, the screen scroll up and down, very beautiful; right above a pointer to the header, you can display the signal strength and battery capacity, the bottom of the BFO and AFC dial twisting and band switch. Machine design is very user-friendly, actually designed the mechanical timing boot and regular shutdown, for example, the machine is off, turn the timer to 30, the machine open, and automatic shutdown after 30 minutes, the machine is open, rotate regularly to 30, machine off, boot automatically after 30 minutes.

In order to facilitate the headphones incorporate the right side of the machine also has a headset incorporating warehouse, but the era of the machine is mono only designed to incorporate single-ear headphones, ears headset does not fit, but it can also be as a the imprint and the logo of Sony humane.

Third, loud and clear voice, the level of induced The ICF-5800 built-in speaker of a caliber 100mm, might sound very simple and honest feeling, is not the kind of treble I’ve ever heard sonorous, similar to metal typical Sony sound, but more recent DS Department of sounds, some micro-Peng. Knob to adjust the effect of high and low, and very eager to please my ears – I like listening to music to increase the bass when listening to vocal treble increase.

Fourth, high sensitivity, short-wave. This is the point I am the machines in the deepest feelings of Pudong Zhang as a senior altar Friends of the sensitivity of this machine evaluation is only one sentence: his family played all of my machines, the sensitivity of the ICF-5800 in addition can not compete with the HAM2000 In addition, almost the highest. Association of the day, I only own antenna, with its upstairs in Heming 10:00 (radio is not up to the time) received, spin a Shuttle, low noise and the end of the audible and strong – A dry I Yangtianchangtan: before shortwave regarded as white to play!

Afternoon, were finally able to free half-day, the ICF-5800, a national treasure B, 802-1 cameo, pulled out a 6 m rod, the external antenna connected to enjoy out of the window extension, sweeps away all the strength of signal to the ICF-5800 (pointer machine, no controlled frequency meter-control, but only the subjective receive and listen to the feelings, not tested BFO).

15:00 pm. Radio less, the ICF-5800 received strong units, the majority of the Voice of China, the signal up to 8 or more (up to 10), and Taiwan acoustic signals between 4,5 and some other foreign language radio stations, the strength of different, but whether strong Taiwan weak, the ICF-5800, the biggest feature is the noise floor light, strong audible signal in the actual operation weak stable receiver, you can put sound on listening clearly. National treasures performance is not weak signal reception is almost is almost the same with the ICF-5800 Jog feel the ICF-5800 comfort noise floor than the ICF-5800 is slightly larger (due to time constraints, the next national treasure for a separate test, higher with the ICF-5800 a).

Take a break, to 17:00 pm. When the station begins to significantly increase, gongs and drums are also beginning to liven Shuttle must be appropriated for slow block can not miss some of the radio, strong Taiwan audible almost be compared with the Polish strong; national treasure still does not show weakness, but because Shuttle trip shorter tuning efforts to accidentally slip a few, had to step back and then fine-tuning.
