The elusive Kchibo D96L on sale for $47 US

Actually, the price is showing as $46.78 from DinoDirect.

The Kchibo D96L is considered a bargian small radio and always reviews well.  Based on the Silicon Labs Si4734 DSP chip, this receiver has excellent selectivity and sensitivity for a radio in its price range–especially on the AM broadcast or Mediumwave band.

I’ve found that the D96L is hard to find these days. In fact, this is the first time I’ve found one for sale outside of eBay.

I’ve never purchased from DinoDirect, but they claim a 30 day money-back guarantee and free shipping.

Before purchasing, read reviews and check out our entry for the D96L in the Shortwave Radio Index.

Please note: I cannot endorse DinoDirect as I could a regional shortwave radio retailer. I would love feedback if any readers have used them before.

Note: It appears if you enter the promo code “sharkcoupon” you receive an additional 10% discount.

    Hello everyone, I believe I have found this radio for sale new on the China Gold website, it is priced at 75 U.S. Dollars. Does anyone know if this is a reputable dealer, and if so, is it worth buying?

      I don’t know that seller, but frankly I’d be reluctant to buy the Kchibo D96L at this point because it’s a little “long in the tooth.” It’s been out for many years now and I’m pretty sure any new stock would be from the last batch produced. I tend to avoid last batches, as as a general rule, because I feel like they contain a higher percentage of faulty units.
