A very sophisticated dual conversion world band receiver that replaced the original ICF-2001. Although roughly the same size, the ICF-2001D added air band coverage (116 MHz to 136 MHz FM), synchronous detection (SW), variable speed tuning by a rotary encoder as well as direct frequency entry, variable IF bandwidth, a ten segment signal strength/battery meter, a digital quartz clock with four programmable timers and a greatly increased number of station memories (32).

For a set that could be easily bought and operated by non-professionals the ICF-2001D offered unparalleled levels of performance and flexibility, so much so that like some of the other top performing Sony world band models, its breadth of coverage had to be internally restricted before it could be sold in certain countries.
