TECSUN PL-990x is equipped with an analog High-IF circuit and DSP triple conversion decoding technology. This radio receiver has great performance in sensitivity, selectivity and combating interference of mirror stations (image rejection). Like its predecessor the PL-880, PL-990x comes with a variety of “hidden features”.

TECSUN has further developed the performance of the Class AB Amplifier circuit and the ultra-dynamic full range speaker, making listening to radio stations and the newly added audio playback feature (from a microSD card) even more enjoyable.
