On Sun Dec 11th I was unable to sync the Packer game broadcast on WTMJ 620 AM with the CBS broadcast! No matter how hard I tried I still got a reverberation on the SR-202 from 2 to 16 seconds. Will send unit back for full refund as soon as I can get it to the Post Office.

Does what it claims to do--which is awesome!
November 25, 2010
I searched for a long time to find a radio that can sync local radio play-by-play announcers with the action on TV. The SportSync radio was designed for just this purpose. It provides enough delay to cover any game scenario.
Here's why I didn't give it 5 stars: the unit looks like an old-fashioned transistor radio, which is kind of cool. But it also sounds like one, which is not. There is a headphone jack that will allow you to run it through a better set of speakers--the cable is provided.
There is also a significant fidelity cost when using the delay feature, but it doesn't matter much when I'm listening to play-by-play. As long as I can understand what's being said, that's all that matters.
Those sound quality issues are bad, but that delay function is exactly what I need and I did not find one single other radio that has it, so I'm thrilled. I think four stars is fair.
