I'll expand on my previous statement
I am a new licensee and just had to have an 830S. They are a joy to operate, simple with all controls to hand.
The RX audio is sublime and the now primitive controls to deal with QRN / QRM (i.e a real notch filter and IF Shift) work exceptionally well. The TX reports you will get will generally elicit unprompted praise of the audio quality.
They also teach you what modern computer controlled rigs are attempting to do with signal processing etc and how a transceiver actually works.
They look good, aren't expensive and when (not if) you have a problem with one you will soon learn a bit of basic electronics to get it fixed.
They were truly built to a specification and you simply do not get workmanship like them anymore.
And note - I am a Yorkshireman not an Englishman...
