My primary radio these days is a JRC NRD-525. I got it used from universal back in 1997 and I still love it. I've got a lot of other radios, but this one is still my rig of choice.

I have used probably 15-20 receivers over the years, and currently use a Drake SW8 and Icom R75, but for BCB DXing, by far the best receiver I have ever used is a Hammarlund HQ-180A--still sorry I sold it back in the 1980's.

FlexRadio Flex 1500, Icom IC-7200, Yaesu FT-817ND, and a few older tube receivers. For SWL, I find that the Flex 1500 is simply incredible because you can see as well as hear the signals, and the filter adjustments are virtually unlimited. And you can see and adjust the filter effects in real time. I have had SSB stations as close together as 2khz with a desired signal between them and I can adjust the Flex to dig it out. For AM listening, I have found nothing better. With the filter widened to about 10khz on an uncrowded band, the Flex sounds as good or better than the old Hallicrafters SX-28A which I had for many years. 

A close second is the IC-7200 which also has a superb receiver with awesome digital filtering.

And the little FT-817nd is a decent performer for SWL use too, especially if you couple it to a good outboard AF DSP filter such as the Timewave DSP-9.

My primary HF receiver right now is an ICOM 737 - the transmit doesn't work because it was disabled by the previous owner at my request...the reason being is my grandson likes to listen when he comes over. And I don't want any accidental transmissions...

Previously, I had posted:
Icom R7100 (VHF/UHF)
Uniden BCD998T (Digital Trunking)
Drake R8A (LW)
Icom 756Pro (Everything else)
Also have a Kiwa R75, but mine is not as good as the R8A for LW or the 756Pro's DSP filtering for BCB/HF


After two months of listening, I now use a FlexRadio 5000A in place of the Icom 756Pro for 0.540-50 MHz. Great S-AM mode, the best filtering that I have used, wonderful audio quality, and the panadapter visual tuning is a treat. No problems getting this to work on my 3 y.o. PC (Intel Core 2-2.6 GHz, 4 GB DDR2), took all of 20 minutes.  I bought Flex's recommended firewire card after reading that many connection issues come from incompatible firewire cards. 

Best Wishes,

Rick

In order of use:

Yaesu FRG-7
Sony 7600G
Yaesu FT450

The frog gives me the best sound and is just fun to play with, the 7600 is a great portable, and the 450 receive with outboard speakers is pretty darn good too.

Three cheers for the FRG-7.  I have lots of higher spec receivers, but the Frog-7 is still my SWL daily driver.
