I have both of these radios and don't use the TS-830S at all.  But as a stand alone receiver that can be used to scan the ham bands while (both SSB and CW) I'm operating with my currently used rig, which one of these 2 would make a better receiver for monitoring the bands?  The R-2000 or the TS-830S?  Both are in good working condition.

I would say for monitoring the ham bands, the TS-830.
Because of features like IF Shift, Notch Filter, Noise Blanker, RIT,etc.
The R-2000 is a fine receiver, though. I had one as an
SWL. It too had a notch filter too, IIRC.

Hey, if you have them both, you decide with
A/B tests and a coax switch.

Tnx, Ken.  Yes, I have been comparing them.  When I bought my TS830 new in the 80's, the main reason I bought it was because at the time it was receiving great reviews for its receiver section.  I have found it to be quite good.   I bought my R2000 about a year ago in great condition, and find myself listening to it when I am not actively operating.  But just was interested in other's take on this.
