RX ok, TX is terrible  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
I wanted an honest no frills HF tranceiver for digital modes so I bought this Alinco dx-sr8t. The receive of this radio is as good as my Kenwood TS-940, however the transmit is dismal as the SSB modulator rolls off rapidly below 1.5 kHz ! The majority of this radio's transmit frequency response is between 1.5 kHz to 3 kHz, which is perfect if you have a cartoon voice, but terrible for the normal human voice and EVEN WORSE for some digital modes. Alinco customer support says if I want a quality radio then I should spend more money! I thought I WAS buying a quality radio...
Because Alinco has poor customer support and low engineering standards I will NEVER buy another Alinco product and your money would be better spent buying ANYTHING other than Alinco junk too.
