              Comments about Sony Portable AM/FM Pocket Radio:

              The Sony ICF-S10MK2 AM/FM Pocket Radio is the consumer electronics industry's best performing pocket radio. It has a flawless design, implementation, and reception of analog radio broadcasts. I enjoy listening to this pocket radio just as much as any larger portable item in my personal radio assortment. A morning sunrise over the Atlantic Ocean, a hot cup of coffee, a warmed croissant, the fresh scent of the morning newspaper, and a Brahms symphony playing gently in the background. This is a marvelous pocket audio product, offering a superior portable design, reception range, and expert craftsmanship as well. This product is designed to persevere throughout the years. The Sony pocket radio can withstand less than ideal weather conditions. It is designed to accommodate subpar operating environments on a consistent basis. The Sony ICF-S10MK2 pocket radio offers two distinct listening options. A formidable built-in 2.25 inch monaural speaker provides big booming sound on FM music stations. Classical music, classic rock, hard rock, the blues, jazz, country, the oldies, and disco music are very enjoyable and superbly reproduced across the FM band. The Sony pocket radio provides clear, well-defined, and distinct voice quality on AM talk radio programs. I find that the weekday morning's public affairs, health, business, world news, technology, popular culture, science, the arts, comedy, movie review, sports talk, newsmaker author interviews, and auto repair programs feature accurate reception on the AM band. The audio quality emitted from this unit's speaker is on par or of better quality than many larger portable radios that I have heard in my experience. The built-in monaural speaker provides depth and clarity of sound, without distortion. A convenient earphone jack is included for any occasion when a private listening session is desired. AM/FM tuning is a breeze with this unit's thumbwheel-style tuning control. The tuning dial is accurately calibrated for all local market radio stations on both broadcast bands. The front panel LED tuning indicator lights up when a station is accurately tuned and locked in. Station-drift is not an issue with this pocket radio. I never feel the need to readjust the tuning dial once the bright red LED indicator is lit. This Sony pocket radio is always there for me when I want to listen to the ballgame, weather forecast, traffic report, stock market update, or a newscast when I can't be near a TV. This unit's AM ferrite bar antenna and FM telescopic whip antenna enable this portable radio to achieve exceptional sensitivity and selectivity broadcast reception performance on the AM/FM bands. I don't need to reorient the position of the portable radio frequently or extend the telescopic antenna to achieve satisfactory AM/FM reception quality. I am also able to receive out-of-market AM stations on most nights when clear atmospheric conditions are present. The Sony ICF-S10MK2 pocket radio offers high-performance battery life. The Sony pocket radio is powered by two AA batteries that are difficult to deplete. It is a rare event when the Sony pocket radio's batteries need to be replaced. I recommend the use of high-performance Duracell Ultra or Energizer Max alkaline batteries for maximum audio performance and battery life for this unit. The super high-performance features offered by this Sony ICF-S10MK2 pocket radio are as follows: analog tuner, thumbwheel-style rotary tuning control, AM/FM dial scale, red tuning marker, LED power on/tuning lock indicator, AM/FM reception, AM frequency range: 530-1600 kHz, FM frequency range: 87.5-108 MHz, AM/FM band selector switch, rotary volume/power control, 2.25 inch monaural speaker, speaker grill, speaker cabinet, 100mW total system output power at 10% THD, 3.5mm monaural earphone jack, built-in AM ferrite bar antenna, FM telescopic whip antenna, black carry strap, DC battery terminals, detachable battery compartment cover, battery compartment, and attractive silver casing. The product dimensions are as follows: Width: 2-7/8", Height: 4-¾", Depth: 1-3/16", and Weight: 7 ounces. The Sony portable radio includes a 90-day parts and labor limited manufacturer warranty. This unit's monaural earphone jack will only permit the user to hear audio out of the left side of a pair of stereo headphones. However, this issue can easily be corrected by connecting a 3.5mm monaural-to-stereo headphone plug adapter to the pocket radio's earphone jack. Sony has produced a perfect pocket radio. Good Luck. Enjoy.
