An excellent new DSP enhanced receiver, to a timeless Sangean Classic. The ATS-405, is a modern update of the long selling ATS-404 receiver, now discontinued.

The ATS-405, new revised shortwave radio from Sangean, is a full coverage, world band receiver, made specifically for low cost, yet full feature, full spectrum band. Perhaps the biggest feature of the ATS-405, is a full Digital Signal Processor (DSP) which enhances the audio spectrum of the band, and combines 2015 modern technology and modern filtering into a tiny package. Generally, receivers with DSP are over $100 more than the ATS-405, but Sangean packs this modern feature into this small portable receiver.
