Excellent buy in new lineup  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
WOW !!! This rig is a great buy without emptying your bank account. I am no newcomer to hf rigs. I have tested many many over the years including almost all of the current line from Kenwood, Elecraft, Yaesu and some Icom. I do not even remember how many others in the past 50 years. In todays market as in cars they are all very very good. The receiver in the FTDX-1200 is very hot yet very very quiet. It plays just as well on CW as on phone. The transmit audio uses the same software as the FTDX-5000 so the TX EQ is as good as it gets. The awesome new Heil HM-12 makes it just sing. It is pretty much the same as the FTDX-3000 minus a couple of little features. You can add these, but if they are really that important then buy a 3000. The rig has a big radio feel with a weighted VFO knob and is well layed out. Simple to use, and it will compete with any rig on the market. I found it amazing. The fully enhanced spectrum display scope is a feature you will just love. It can go full screen too and is automated. Taking nothing away from the TS-590s, for the same price point this rig will guarantee to knock your socks off. I found no short comings unless you expect every known option.. Having said that this rig has every option 99% of all hams ever need.
