Sony ICF2001 Versus The Hammarlund SP600

We Say

Great to see these classic receivers in a rather unfair competition.

They Say

Here's a comparison between a Sony ICF2001 and my Hammarlund SP600. The Sony keeps pace with the SP600 on sensitivity and has a little better tone due to better base response. The Hammarlund is known for weak base response by design. All in all, the 30 year old Sony is still a good receiver although not much fun for tuning around.
