I've had a couple SRF-84 radios, the earlier models are very quiet and seem to be aligned but the later versions (86?) had alot of background noise. The radio is stellar on battery life, 60+ hrs. and is very small.

I then tried, and immediately resold on Ebay for profit, an SRF-M97. It was terrible.

I finally ordered a Sangean DT-180, supposed to get in today. I'm certain, from reviews here, that it will be much better than either Sony.


Overall, a small radio with no speaker or clock is a different animal than one with those features plus digital tuning and presets. The DT200/400 is still a little bulky for me (walking, falling asleep). That is why I like my old ICF-SX3R, it's super thin.

The only other thin radio, besides newer Sony radios, is the Grundig M400...POS.
