The ICF-7600D was the second model in the series, the original being the conventionally tuned ICF-7600. The ICF-7600D added digital tuning and therefore effectively became a miniature version of the ICF-2001. Although small it was still an excellent dual conversion world band receiver whose performance in some areas (notably sensitivity and battery life) was better than its larger predecessor. There were some limitations however, notably that the tuning step size on the short wave bands was 5 KHz, a manual “fine tuning” wheel being provided to fill in the gaps. A tape recorder output was fitted but this had a very low level intended as it was to match the microphone inputs of certain Sony cassette recorders. Text copyright © Walkman Central.

This model also featured a built-in digital quartz clock with a radio alarm function as well as the sleep timer that the ICF-2001 included. The ICF-7600D was a long running success which was later replaced by the lightly restyled but essentially similar ICF-7600DS. Text copyright © Walkman Central. Unauthorised reproduction prohibited.
