The product is good, no doubt about it. However I feel that some reviewers are overpraising this product. I am using it for a month now with a home made long wire short wave antenna, and I am being able to tune into BBC from Chennai (in the daytime). However, this radio is not a choice if you want to DX. If you are looking for a radio to scan short wave specifically, please do not buy this.
Again for 800 Rs price tag, this is OK.
This set reminds me of my childhood, when I play my childhood favorite AIR Cuttack on it. Unlike those times, the FM stations are like honey added on it. But the SW band disappoints with its transmission quality. A good bedside device with soothing sound quality. In signal reception, this set wont disappoint you. Battery is comparatively more suitable than power conversion. The only difference I have noticed is that, in youtube videos you will find one red indicator showing signal strength and green one for volume with a backlight for the tuning meter, which is missing in the set being supplied by flipkart. I am more than a bit surprised, why these useful features have been withdrawn from my set. May I request FLIPKART, to look in to it and replace my set with these features, if possible.
A Nice small radio, with beautiful retro looks. And it does have Excellent Sound in spite of having a mono speaker !! That's the plus point of this piece.
The reception is pretty good. I get very good FM (in Mumbai) after adjusting antenna properly. AM reception is not that great. I can get some SW stations - some clear, some noisy - if I place the radio near the window. But I have rarely got any better SW reception with any radio, so that's not a major drawback. This is not a high end short wave receiver at this price !! ...The good part is that, being portable you can move it around and find out where you get the best reception. Usually near the windows is the best place. ...MW reception was not so satisfactory because I used to get better with my old Big radio. But still it's quite acceptable, especially considering that there is little broadcast over MW these days !! So overall very fine performance. The best part about a radio of this kind - I am myself using one like thsi after many many years - is that you can listen to ti passively - unlike the mobile radios which you have to plug into your ears. So you can keep it on at a distance in the background, do your other work, and at the same time indulge in what you may call 'passive listening' - like I am doing now while writing this review !!
Coming to the flip side - there are a couple of things !! The first and more important is that the volume knob is hard to turn and it's difficult to do fine adjustmnts to the volume - it may get too high or too low for your requirement - especially it matters in the night !! But with a bit of persistance, you can finally adjust it reasonably close !! The second problem - it's just an incovenience - is that there is no power indicator light, so if the volume is low, there is no way to notice if you leave the radio on accidently!! I don't know whay they couldn's add such a basic feature !!
Also note that there is a headphione connection, but being mono you get sound only in one ear !! So that definitely can be a major issue if you plan to use it with a headphone. But in all probability if you are buying this kind of radio, it's not so much to use ot with headphones.
Overall for this price range, this radio deserves well above 4 stars !!If you are happy with these features, Go for it !!
I always had a keen interest in radio since my adolescence. I recall our family was having a big tabletop radio of old type. That was having an antenna of long belt of mesh which we installed on terrace. The antenna was meant for listening SW band. The Binaka Geet Mala was very popular programme on SW band during those days. But I was away from radio for last 15 to 20 years, except occasional listening FM on mobile while traveling to cities. There is no FM reception on mobile handsets at my place of residence.
Recently while surfing through the net, I came across some portable world receivers viz. Grundig, Tecsun, Sangean etc. available at online stores. It caught my attention and my urge for having a radio, which was dormant for so many years, suddenly surfaced. These receivers were digital and expensive. Then my curiosity tempted me to search further for some inexpensive options. I also found Sony ICF-SW11- 12 band analog world receiver. But size was small suitable to fit into jacket pocket, targeted for hikers and commuters. This was priced at INR 2,799. I would like to keep it on my wishlist.
I was looking for table top model as my wife also has an interest in radio listening and has expressed her wish to buy one. I found some Philips and Sony models in table top category and finally settled on Sony ICF-F12S.
I purchased it on a reputed online store through online payment. The expected date of delivery was 15th of this month. The parcel received on 18th. Not so much delay. I was eager to receive it and skeptical about its performance. I opened it soon after received. It did not contain batteries. I immediately rushed to nearby store and bought two R20 size D batteries and loaded it.
As soon as I turned it on and tuned to my favorite station on FM band, the room suddenly filled with crisp and loud sound of Akashwani Ahmednagar. The reception was so crystal clear as if you are listening in the city itself where broadcasting station is located. The sound is really loud and more than sufficient to fill medium sized room. I had in the past one two-in-one of BPL make and then had tried Philips radios but none of it had such a good reception and they are not even nearby to such quality. Thanks to Sony which stood to its name.
The looks are stunning and stand out from Philips. The dial is vertical and has spaced amply with frequencies adequately spread over facilitating the ease of tuning. The tuning knob is positioned on front panel and its position allows you to adjust it with your thumb and index finger which exercises precise control. The volume control knob is also positioned on the front panel below the tuning knob which also allows volume adjustments comfortably. The ON / OFF switch is provided on the right panel. I feel that this function could have been assigned to the volume control knob. Once I mistakenly kept the radio on overnight while the volume was zero. This can be avoided with the above arrangement. There is a 3.5mm jack on the right panel for headphones. But it is mono and hence you can listen through only one ear. It would be great if it is provided with stereo output. However I would caution that it is not for hardcore shortwave listeners and at the same time not for young zappers used to 3D surround.
I am enjoying it for last ten days and the performance is excellent. The sensitivity and selectivity both are very good. So far, I have tuned to following stations which I found prominent.
FM Band : Akashwani Ahmednagar (85 km away), Akashwani Aurangabad (125 km), Akashwani Nashik (90 km), Radio City Ahmednagar, Radio Dhamaal Ahmednagar.
MW Band : Akashwani Bhopal, Jalgaon, Raipur, BBC World Service.
SW Band : China Radio International (CRI) English Service, Voice of Russia English Service, BBC World Service, Vividh Bharati, AIR, Radio Pakistan.
The FM and SW band reception is excellent. MW reception is not so good, which I never found on any radio except on my grandfathers jumbo tabletop of BUSH brand.
What to expect at a throwaway price of INR 890. I would give it a full five star. Go for it blindly upon my words. You will not be disappointed. Thanks!!
This radio I had decided after I experienced similar radio (SONY also) during my childhood, this is a real kick a** radio, it had easily over taken my all radios in FM quality, especially in places of the house, where other radio's can't perform, this radio gave a crystal clear output.
Batteries, 2 X R20 (Size D), yes, its big, and its best part is, the battery compartment is at the bottom, means, if by any case the battery leaks (may happen), you are not going to lose your radio for sure.
Only drawback is this radio don't have a handle, only a strap to hang it, (come on please you are not going to hand it in your shoulder along with a bird shooting gun!), I did not fasten its strap as it will be kept in table always.
Sound Quality - within a day I gave up my branded (I don't want to say which brand here, but not SONY), digital radio.
