Summary: I bought this because I wanted a radio that fit in the palm of my hand, had great AM reception, and had a speaker. Here are the positives of the Sangean DT-200X: 1) Great size. About the same size as a deck of cards. 2) Excellent AM reception. I live about 2 hours away from a major city. I can receive the AM stations there with only slight distortion. Better than my previous radio. 3) The external speaker is adequate.
Summary: Bought this to modify as a Ghost Box, but found out after ordering it, that the company had changed models, even though they look the same, and it was no longer the model that you can find mods for on youtube & the net, as it's missing one of the metal prongs inside, but the spot for it is still there, so I just bent another one and it still worked as a Ghost Box, it's not as good as the Spirit Box which you don't have to modify, but this one still gave us some excellent...
Summary: Length:: 2:18 Mins This Sangean arrived about a week ago. It has no FM reception unless ear buds or antenna cord are plugged into ear bud jack. I'm here in Los Angeles not on a ranch or farm in middle of nowhere. FM reception on this Sangean DT-200X without using aforementioned ear bud cord or antenna cord into speaker jack is not going to happen. I looked online for some kind of audio/speaker jack antenna ending up going to local electronics store.
Summary: I had the predecessor to this and the new model has features that make it easier, like pushing the buttons up or down for the presets, rather than only one direction and having to go through all 20 presets that it had. Also nice is the way this model works for setting the presets. The light bothered me at first when I'm in bed listening to evening or overnight radio, but now I don't have to shine a light on the new model. The light goes out after a number of seconds.
Summary: This is great for those ghost box sessions,got some amazing results from this already and i only had it 3 weeks.the only reason i gave it a 4 star is the reception is bad if you want to use it to listen to music but for talking to ghost it works great.Has to be hacked in order for it to scan though which is easy.
Summary: As the title says, I'm trying to like the DT-200X. I had the DT-400 for a couple years, and it worked great, until I dropped it into a mud puddle. Electronics do not like mud puddles! After deciding I did not need the weather radio function I decided to try the DT-200. First try, out of the package, put batteries in the radio and a static noise came from the speaker whether the radio was on or off. Returned it.
Summary: I am very happy with this little unit. It's the perfect radio to carry around in your pocket. It's easy on batteries and easy to use. I listen mostly with earbuds, but the built-in speaker comes in handy sometimes, especially for sharing with another listener. Nice sound, and pulls in the stations very well. I particulary like the "lock" feature, which prevents you from changing the station accidentally while moving around.
