This player is too nostalgic for middle ages! The innovated CD-radio-cassette player, ‘RX-D47’ is released, which can be compatible with ’Wide FM’.

It looks similar to the previous player that was fashioned in 1980’s. Although most of us thought this design was unfashionable at that time, it’s portable and handy because of the buttons on the surface of it. Changing the cassettes or CD is also easy. This product, ‘RX-D47’ by Panasonic, remind us of the golden ages of the radio-cassette player.

Of course, not only CD and radio, but also cassette tape can be listened with it. Its color is silver so that this newest product is certainly suitable for people in the middle ages.

Do you know what ‘Wide FM’ is? It means that AM broadcasting is aired with FM’s frequency. As a matter of fact, AM broadcast is prone to get radio interference in which there are noises, such as buildings and flats. However, FM broadcast is clearer than its counterpart even in urban area and during a catastrophe.

Anyway, this service has already started in Kitanihon Broadcasting and Nnkai Broadcasting since 1st December, 2015, then the 22 broadcasting stations is compatible until now. Basically the frequency of FM is assigned 76MHz~ 90MHz, but ‘Wide FM’ has another allocation, 90.1MHz~ 94.9MHz. Consequently you can use this service with ‘RX-D47’.
