Alanswebb, after my cursory, initial evaluation of the DV-1 vs. the 5700D, I am in full agreement with with your statement that there is NO comparison between the DV-1 and the 5700D. The DV-1 is a capable digital decode receiver encompassing most digital modes, however after spending a day or two with my 5700D, my DV-1 audio during digital decode now sounds muffled and choppy compared to the 5700D . I have yet to scratch the surface of the 5700D regarding things like dual receive, cyber search, HF monitoring and many of the sub menus. I have only programmed a few banks of my local public safety, a mix of UHF analog FM and P25. We have a bus company here that uses TETRA and the DV-1 does a decent job decoding with occasional cutting out or choppiness. So far the 5700D has been spot on with TETRA decode, NO cutting out or choppiness. I did post a short video of the 5700D scanning memory banks on the AOR5700D Communications Receiver Facebook page if anyone is interested. More to follow.......Well, you know how it starts off…. Something along the lines of. “My uncle bought a Ford car and had nothing but trouble with it, I’m not touching one!” And so the story goes on and on until eventually you start believing that every single Ford car is nothing but trouble!
And then there are those, and this is speaking from experience, the ones who have never had the experience of owning one, are the ones who know best AND create the biggest stink about something that ‘they know best.’
For the record: There really is no comparison between the AOR DV-1 and the 5700D. I mean, absolutely no comparison apart from being made by the same Company.
This has now been confirmed as a faulty SD card and NOT a FAULTY radio.Well to be honest unless you have the updated firmware installed in the radio its disaster anyway as from my experience the original was bad and now I am hear that 07 is also crashing on start up causing a boot error .
You cannot win this. AOR will not admit any faults, that is well proven. Even if they have 'worked on' the Radio to get it working again, it seems to me you need to decide whether you want/need to be a 5700D Owner under any circumstances, or QUICKLY take the opportunity that AOR has presented to you.So it would seem that the fault is still on the radio and its only a matter of time before it goes again and when it does then what ??
Same here…. can’t help but want to spend lots of time getting to know ‘her’ so much in fact, the wife is beginning to get jealous. And it’s only been two weeks!My 5700D has been excellent for the short time I have owned it. Zero issues. A commercial grade receiver for sure. ZERO comparison to any other AOR receiver I have owned including the 8200, 8600, DV-10 and DV-1.
-110dBm are 0,7uV and -112dBm are 0,55uV and AOR's brochure says less than 0,4uV for the range 25Mhz-2750MHz using NFM mode.Freq- Input – RX signal strength.
Can someone please explain in 'detail' what exactly 'ZERO comparison' means in relation to the 5700D and all other AOR receivers?My 5700D has been excellent for the short time I have owned it. Zero issues. A commercial grade receiver for sure. ZERO comparison to any other AOR receiver I have owned including the 8200, 8600, DV-10 and DV-1.
