  AOR AR-DV1 "Digital Voice Receiver"  

The very unique AOR AR-DV1 "Digital Voice Receiver" (Made in Japan)  Decent supplement "Stand Alone" receiver for the ICOM IC-R8600 to cover the digital voice modes it lacks (like DMR). There is no other "Stand Alone" receiver on the market that can decode as many digital voice modes as does the AR-DV1. Has many bugs in the pudding with it's mediocre RF performance and MW / HF audio quality in our testing. This is NOT a scanner !!  (N9EWO Photo)

CON :
-  Local MW and FM Broadcast Station Breakthrough into SW Coverage (common). May need the addition of a "Band Pass Filter" in the antenna line (location dependent).
Limited HF Dynamic Range, after any MW/FM Breakthrough issues are taken care of. Adding 20 db of EXTERNAL attenuation at the antenna connector cleared this issue up 100%.
-  Shrill-Sharp Tiring audio quality when listening to MW and SW broadcast stations (external speakers NOT helping to improve it, it also has no tone control) / FM Broadcast etc. audio pars better (no tone controls are provided)
Bandwidth choices are limited and dependent on mode
-  No traditional antenna attenuator provided (internal automatic one works differently)
-  SLOW scanning and searching modes (even worse when dealing with Digital Signals)
-  Unacceptable Sync Detection Performance (which also includes 2 Totally useless Too Narrow Bandwidth selections)
-  LOUD disconcerting "POP" at power up and again at power down
-  Typical AOR Sour Ergonomics. Lots of button pushing to archive basic settings
-  Test sample included a noisy switching type power supply, 12 volt DC at 1500ma current rating (earlier production included a unregulated linear supply)
-  Test sample included a 8 GB MICRO SD card with a micro to standard SD Card adapter (earlier production came with 4 GB "standard size" card, more preferable)
-  Receiver drop outs on NSQ setting (cured by selecting LSQ squelch setting even if set at zero)
-  When in digital voice modes, lacks audio punch / No Audio AGC for Digital Signals (audio level is all over the place).
-  Volume when receiving digital signals requires MUCH higher setting over analog Broadcast stations
-  Digital decode quality is generally mediocre and not 100 % reliable when scanning some digital signals (even when strong)
-  FM Broadcast in Mono only
-  Slightly wobbly volume / squelch / tuning knob encoders. Tuning knob also has a low cost feeling when rotated
-  Warm to Hot operation (heat greatly depends on ambient room temperature and mode used)
-  Large and ugly FCC Part 15 sticker on bottom (US Domestic Version, this almost falls off in use when the cabinet gets warm enough)  The sticker is printed on low cost paper / adhesive
-  LCD Multi-Plex noise (minor)
-  Test sample's frequency display off approx 300 hz (low) at 15 MHz (no customer way to correct this unlike the Icom IC-R8600 which does)
-  Keypad lighting only useful in TOTAL darkness, otherwise It hinders visibility
-  Lacks Digital Decode of NXDN 9600 (12.5 kHz) and Yaesu Fusion VW (Voice Wide) mode (P25 Phase 2 Conventional Mode is Planned)
Has a tendency to slide around in use, more so when using the front flip up feet (especially with when turning off as more force Is required)
-  Very finicky on what SD Cards it will work with


Cabinet / Knobs / LCD Display Multi-Plex Noise / Manual

First item that hits you with the AR-DV1 on its box and front panel is it says “Digital Voice Receiver”. This is NOT a scanner type receiver and how it works is different. It is indeed  “Made in Japan” which is becoming more and more rare these days. 

Cabinet is in a very attractive solid metal shell and is WHITE in color with light blue accents on the plastic front bezel. One can see the tiny panel markings well too (no black cabinet with GRAY lettering on this receiver to have to struggle with).

One can backlight the keys in a number of different colors (LCD Backlight is a only one color). But we found if not in TOTAL darkness, this is a hindrance and actually makes it hard to see (here it’s better with it off). All buttons have a good tactile response (just slightly mushy in our view).

Two flip down front feet are provided and work well. If these were not there would have made the receiver very hard to use. Downside is that the cabinet tends to slide around when turning the receiver on / off with the flip down feet in use (you need to push on the volume control to do that and takes some force). There are 4 excellent rubber like feet on the bottom (2 rear ones are only in use with the flip down feet).   

The hard plastic Volume / Squelch and Main Tuning Knob (click encoders) work adequately. However they all have slight wobble / rotational play and the un-weighted tuning knob feels low cost when rotated (we assume this is a mechanical type encoder being used here?). They all have detents, with the tuning knob one being of the soft type, so no annoying CLACK – CLACK – CLACK as it’s rotated.

Speaking of the Squelch control, we found that ONLY using the LSQ (Level Squelch) mode works properly. NSQ (Noise Squelch, default) makes the receiver cut in and out even if the squelch control is set at ZERO. This is set by pushing and holding the Squelch control in for a second. There is also a separate Voice Squelch mode (not tested). 

Connection to a PC is provided on the front panel via MICRO USB port. Default baud rate is 115200. There is a AUX 1/8 inch mono phone jack on the rear panel for alternative low level that can also be used for connection to external decoders (say to a computer). 

The LCD is small and has a limited viewing angle. But it has a good "even" backlight and includes a one step dimmer selection. This dimmer is greatly appreciated too as with full brightness will make for some major eye pain (is way too bright).

In testing we detected minor LCD display “Multi-Plexing”. That is one will see a scanning dark haze in operation (more detectable with darker contrast settings). This is normal and not a fault.

Frequencies are displayed in kHz up to 3000 KHz (3 Mhz) in LARGE digits. Mhz after this, with all digits becoming smaller and the last 5 becoming thin and more difficult too see for tried old eyes. Not sure the point is with this weird scheme ?

Included 68-page English manual while being helpful for proper operation sorely lacks in others leaving the owner in the dark on many topics (if covered at all).

Included AC Adapter / Astron RS-7A To The Rescue / LARGE FCC Part 15 Sticker on Bottom

With the test sample “US Consumer” version (800 MHz blocked segments), a 12 volt 1500 ma SWITCHING type power supply was included. Originally an unregulated 800ma linear transformer supply was included. Those tended to run extremely hot and the reason why is the actual closer “tested” current draw is more like ONE ampere (1000 ma) at 12 volts (digital reception while scanning with loud volume). Is this included switching supply RF noisy at all on the HF bands ?? If you are using the included whip antenna, you bet it is ! With an outdoor external antenna it pars better, but why even deal with a noisy switching supply at all when receiving HF signals, indoor or outdoor antenna.

Operating the receiver with an Astron RS-7A linear regulated power supply worked perfectly (no added noise ZERO), and its rear sink was very touchable even after a number of hours in digital modes while scanning.

The power input socket is of a standard DC “round” type and is 2.1 ID x 5.5 OD mm size (+ positive tip).

While operating the receiver with any digital decode modes and scanning creates the maximum amount of current consumption and the maximum amount of cabinet heat. Depending on ambient room temperature, it can operate very warm if not near hot. So the usual stuff here, don’t stack anything on top or near the cabinet. It has NO internal cooling fans thank goodness.

On the bottom of the cabinet with the test sample USA Domestic Version, there is a large and ugly FCC Part 15 sticker. It covers a good part of the bottom side. Printed on very low cost paper / adhesive and with a warm cabinet it nearly falls off on it’s own.         

“POP Goes the Speaker”

As indicated in the owner’s manual (is normal and not a defect), while the receiver is being powered up and also when being powered down a very LOUD and disconcerting POP is heard in the speaker. One does not want to have a pair of headphones in use while powering the set up or down.

Other than with this bug, the audio is loud and hiss free. Small fine “electronic” volume adjustments allow for good nighttime listening (say at a bed side).

Awesome Sensitivity / Excellent MW - SW AGC and RF-G Mode / MAJOR Difference Between Analog and Digital Volume Levels

Talk about sensitivity. It certainly has lots of it across its tested “Wide Band” tuning range. In fact maybe just a bit too much (see the Dynamic Range paragraph later in this report). Its antenna jack is one lone BNC female connector on the rear for all bands.

In side by side testing with the Icom IC-R8600 that in some situations, the AR-DV1 actually received extremely "weak" HF/SW signals better (including the audio recovery). We are splitting hairs mind you, but this was a real surprise ! The better performing AGC with the AOR also helped here. But in general it was a pretty close horse race. Downside is with the shrill-sharp audio quality on MW / SW bands (more on this later).

AGC with the AOR AR-DV1 is a stellar performer with MW / SW signals that are all over the place. Not just because it has 3 selections (Fast-Medium-Slow), but generally excellent all around performance. If one places the AGC selection in RF-G mode then the squelch control becomes a RF Gain control. Again we found the AGC performance actually performs a bit better over the Icom IC-R8600 in our testing.

The nasty is with Digital signals, there appears to be is NO "Audio" AGC here so the volume is all over the place. Also the volume between MW / SW and other analog signals is greatly LOWER over Digital Decoded ones. So one needs to be careful not to stress the audio amplifier and or the speaker when switching back and forth (say from VFO / Memory Channels etc).    

Modes / Digital Decode Bliss / Decode Quality So-So and Sometimes not 100% / Lacks NXDN 9600 (12.5 kHz)

“Non-Digital” modes include
-   FM
-   AM
-   SAH (Synchronous Detection Upper)
-   SAL (Synchronous Detection Lower)
-   USB
-   LSB
-   CW

When it comes to voice digital modes the AOR AR-DV1 versatility is unbeatable in a "standalone" receiver (at the time this report was compiled). Not that it covers all of the popular modes, but pretty close.

-    Digital Auto Mode
-    Tetra (No Auto Mode)
-    DMR / MOTOTRBO (Tier I and II, it will decode Tier III but no data-as tested)
-    Alinco Digital (newer EJ-47J)
-    Yaesu Fusion (DN mode)
-    D-CR / NXDN (4800 6.25 kHz)
-    P25 Phase 1
-    P25 Phase 2 Conventional (planned)
-    D-Star
-    DPMR

Major Digital Modes lacking is NXDN 12.5 kHz 9600 and Yaesu Fusion in VW (voice wide). Again being this is NOT a scanning type receiver, it does not support trunking of any kind.

Decode quality while quite acceptable is not at any stellar standing. When scanning it sometimes does not stop with digital signals (even if super strong). Doesn’t happen too often, but is one that needs to be pointed out. I would say it was good about 90% of the time in testing.

Memories / VFO’s / Scanning / Searching

2000 total memory channels are provided. These are divided up as 50 channels in 40 banks. What is stored with each memory channel is hazy and incorrect in the manual. It does store more than Frequency, Mode, Tuning Step and 12-character alpha tag. Add the AGC setting, Bandwidth among others.

As with it is with most AOR receivers, there are 2 very useful VFO’s. Additionally there is one called VFO-Z. This is again is vaguely covered in the manual on what it really does. For one is used for tuning the memory channels, So yes the memory channels are indeed tunable. One just hits ENT key while on a memory channel to accomplish this.

Operational Tip: If you hit the F (function) key while in a VFO mode the tuning step increases by a factor of 10. (Example: 5 kHz becomes 50 KHz). The F button has no time out, so remains active until you hit it again. That is a bit different and is plus or negative depending on how one prefers it.

Scanning speed of the memory channels is poky at best. If you scan digital channels that contain Digital modes it becomes even pokier. Even another step worse if the “Auto” mode is used. However the “Auto” mode select is a super neat feature with the AR-DV1. There is a PASS feature that allows the receiver to not scan these marked channels (same as Lockout on scanners).     

Searching has 2 modes. A very convenient fast VFO Search, where it searches between VFO A and VFO B and Program Search, where it searches between pre-programmed limits (up to 20 groups are provided).

Selectivity Choices A Bit Limited But OK and Excellent

There are a number of Selectivity choices for all modes. The ones available varies dependent on mode. FM Broadcast normally uses the 200 kHz bandwidth, but a 100 kHz is available and is good for dx’ing. By the way the FM Broadcast band is in MONO only.

With AM Synchronous Detector Mode, 2 poor narrow choices of 2.6 and 3.8 were chosen, It’s not a huge loss as the Sync Detector is a utter disappointment anyway (it breaks into distortion more than not and again the filter selections are just too narrow).

Available Filter Bandwidths:

FM:  100, 200, 30, 15 and 6 kHz.
FM Digital P25: Fixed at 15 kHz
FM Digital other ?: Fixed at 6 kHz
AM: 15, 8, 5.5 and 3.8 kHz
AM Sync: 3.8 and 2.6 kHz
SSB: 2.6 and 1.8 kHz
CW :  500 or 200 Hz

Available Tuning Steps / Test Sample Frequency Display Approx 300 Hz Low

Tuning steps are proper and what’s available is dependent on mode selection. The finest tuning step and display resolution is 10 Hz . Stability is excellent all around.

Those steps are: 10, 50, 100, 500 Hz, 1, 2, 5, 6.25, 7.5, 8.33, 9, 10, 12, 15, 20, 25, 3, 50, 100 and 500 kHz.

Test sample frequency display was off up to around 300 hz (low). As it always goes in these situations, the error is worse as one increases in frequency. Sadly there does not appear for a way FOR THE CUSTOMER to correct this error (with the ICOM IC-R8600 this is easily done in the menu’s).

This error also throws off the Synchronous AM mode with normal tuning, but as we have already covered in this report above, when even when properly tuned the Sync detector sorely lacks and the only 2 poor bandwidth filtering choices provided are too narrow anyway.

SSB and Manual ECSS modes are excellent even with the only one "useful" 2.6 kHz  bandwidth provided. But again with the frequency being slightly off makes that not as nice tuning around in 1 kHz tuning steps for SSB. One has to change the tuning step and fiddle with off channel fine tuning (a major chore).

Of course AOR provides NO service information (not even a decent block diagram) of this receiver. AOR USA did respond back to us when we reported it, but gave no resolution or answer.

MW and FM Broadcast Breakthrough Issues / Manual Preselector For Certain Situations

If the AOR AR-DV1 is used anywhere near a MW of FM broadcast station(s) one can expect these signals to breakthrough into the SW bands. It just lacks the proper internal pre filtering. The easy way to cure this is to add a external Band Pass Filter to the input of the antenna line so to cut off the interference.

We experienced this issue at HQ (in our case it was a local 1 KW MW station). To cure this issue, a Chinese 3.5 to 30 Mhz “Band Pass Filter” was added that allows signals only in this range and it terminated the offending local MW station 100%. However just using a VARIABLE attenuator also cleared up this issue up but also reducing all incoming signals as well.

Testing was not done with a manual HF pre-selector. This would add another tedious step in the tuning process and is desirable to avoid that altogether. However if one is near HF amateur radio station a manually tuned PASSIVE (no preamps) preselector may be a requirement (such as the MFJ-1046, not tested).


Chinese 3.5 to 30 MHz “Band Pass Filter”
Depending on where you live, this may be a required purchase for the AOR AR-DV1


HF Dynamic Range : Not Excessively Bad


Once the MW / FM breakthrough Issue is taken care of (if you need to deal with it), the next gremlin that can occur is receiver overloading on the HF bands. Actually behaved itself fairly well with the test 55-foot long wire antenna. But alas during peak “very strong” band conditions (say the 49 Meter SW Broadcast Band at night) we indeed experienced overloading with a decent antenna. If it was less than very strong band conditions, it was not a problem at all.

Cure was to add a 20 db EXTERNAL attenuator in the antenna line (ours was a variable type so just enough to get the job done). This cured the problem 100%. Why an external one you ask? It has no traditional antenna attenuator. There is an automatic inboard one used for ADC overload, but this attenuator circuit does not work in the same way.

This attenuator was also required to tune in the MW band at any time at the test location to reduce the local signals JUST ENOUGH to keep overloading at bay. This situation will of course vary at any given location. 

Shrill Audio Quality with MW and SW Broadcasting Stations

One major “Bug-A-Boo” with the AOR AR-DV1 is with its shrill-sharp “tiring” audio quality with MW or SW signals. It has ZERO bass response and external speakers will not help with this disconcerting issue. With the sharp audio quality and being a SDR on these bands, a plus side of this is for above average voice audio recovery (can hear the spoken work better). With FM Broadcast (and all other signals) it pars better in this department (much more Bass response). There are no tone controls provided on the AR-DV1 (none).

If AOR were to improve on these MAJOR MW / SW “AM Mode” audio issues (firmware ?), we feel they could very well improve sales perhaps greatly, but don’t hold your breath ? We have talked to a number of AR-DV1 owners and this was the MAIN reason they did not like it (of course this is a very subjective topic).

Even with the sub par audio quality with MW and SW broadcast stations the use of an external speaker in testing was a huge plus to help point the audio to the user.

Noise Reduction / Auto Notch Filter

The AOR AR-DV1 includes a 3-Step Noise Reduction feature (accessible in the "options" list, Function + 9). The LOW and MED settings work wonderful and above the average.

Equally decent is the Auto Notch available in the same “option” list.


Excellent On Board SD Card “Off Air” Recorder / Finicky With SD Cards


As found with the Icom IC-R8600 we have a standard SD card slot on the front panel which allows for making internal “off air” audio recordings as well as to store backup the memory files and receiver preferences.

Audio recordings are made in the "wav" format (19200 kHz 16 bit Mono). There is only the one quality setting but works well. They can be played back in the receiver itself or in a computer.

It's very "finicky" on what SD cards it accepts and operates properly. The single page July 2017 "manual addendum" included with current samples indicates this (has to do with the IC used in the SD card).  EXAMPLE:  We tried a high quality SanDisk 32GB Class 10 card and it would NOT accept it. However with a SanDisk 8GB Class 6 Card worked perfectly.

The included "standard size" 4 GB SD card was changed to an 8 GB MICRO size card with a micro to standard SD card adapter (both are class 10 cards). This is not the best way with these card adapters for any extended use like this, use of a standard SD card is best (but this works OK).

Only way that we were able to erase files off the a card was in the PC. We could find no way to do this in the receiver. Owners manual barely covered how to record.

“Serial Number” Firmware Update Confusion

Unblocked versions (most samples worldwide) Serial Numbers start with 0952xxxx, USA "Blocked" Consumer Domestic versions Serial Numbers versions start with 0956xxxx. There are 2 different PC Board versions (as indicated in the firmware instructions) where 2 different firmware versions starting with v1710C (the 2 different PC boards). The split is at 09523001 and firmware instructions say nothing about the blocked 0956xxxx versions on which one to use at the time this report was complied.

AOR USA had indicated to us directly that blocked consumer versions use the .DV1 file extension. Well guess what.....with the test sample (received in Feb 2018) does NOT recognize the .DV1 file (but does the .DV2 file).

We successfully completed the update using the .DV2 file with our OUR test sample. Where the serial number split is with the US Consumer "blocked" version is unknown. About all one can do is see what a sample recognizes which file and go from there ? Of course the US consumer “domestic” blocked versions have much LOWER Serial numbers, nowhere near 3001 (blocked samples sold are in the 09560160> area as of early 2018).

I will NOT be held responsible for any info that is listed here.
ALL DONE AT YOUR OWN RISK !

So What’s the Word With the AR-DV1 ??

The AR-DV1 is a very unique usable “Wide Band” receiver even with it RF warts (albeit with it’s steep price tag).

What other “standalone” radio receiver on the market can decode most of the widely used digital modes with the neat side to also listen on the HF / MW or FM broadcasting bands with the SAME radio (with having half way decent RF performance) ?

The AR-DV1 is excellent for hunting new unknown digital signals with its auto mode. Dedicated scanners can decode DMR and NXDN, but lack all others like D-Star and Yaesu Fusion. Yes one can use a low lost “SDR dongle” and the DSD+ program tied to a computer, but that is royal pain in the rump to make happen (plus even more marginal decode quality) and of course is not a standalone alternative. As covered in the review above, would be a huge plus if AOR could add NXDN support for 9600 (12.5 kHz). This would make it an even better deal.

However one definitely needs to understand what the receiver is including what it can do and cannot do before making a purchase. We need to stress AGAIN (one more time) that it is NOT a traditional scanner and does not try to be one.

If one is ONLY into SW/HF/MW monitoring, the AOR AR-DV1 is probably NOT for YOU. We strongly feel that a candidate MUST have a primary interest in the radio-monitoring world above 30 MHz (including having "standalone" digital voice decoding) with everything below as more secondary. We wish the audio issues as covered in the review with MW and SW bands was addressed. As it stands is a pretty sour pill for MW/HF broadcast listening.

3 Computer Programs for the AOR AR-DV1 (tested on a "Windows 7" 64 Bit computer)

DV1 Manager [Free]

This program does not install. One just copies the files into a directory. No errors to speak of but it was total disaster in our testing. Half of the program is in French. We were able to do some basic control of the front panel functions and that was about it. Memory / Search functions did not respond to the receiver (at all). No instructions and we gave up in quick order. It's Free and should be as it was totally unusable. It is a terrible program in our testing, actually is recommended by AOR (amazingly).        

espyonard - AOR AR-DV-1 Computer Control [about $ 55. USD]

I have not been able to do an in depth review of eSPYonARD for a variety of reasons. It certainly appears to be very comprehensive. A lot of thought and work has gone into its production.

There is a free Trial program available, which contains a full instruction Manual, which is required reading, and covers all the many functions the program has to offer.

Currently it is the only program available to control the AR-DV1 which offers a Band Scope facility, and also a suite of functions called 'Q' exclusive to this Receiver.
