Prettiest boatch anchor ever.
Time owned: 6 to 12 months
This is not the best on the planet receiver but is the most nice of the boat anchor era. It is a capable receiver up to 20 mhz with stock preamps, oscillator and mixer tubes, more than that you need an extra preamp. EXCELLENT AM BCB RECEIVER , with a lot of sensitivity on that lower band and also a lot of Q using the antenna trimmer cap.
Audio reproduction has very good bass and nice voice articulation. Not very stable on SSB but on AM is more than enough. Sharp crystal selectivity position has 5 khz band width. Lamp noise limiter works EXCELLENT. Ergonomics are very good. Main and band sread tuning knobs have no back lash.
These are mi personal ratings.
Built quality... 5
Performance .... 4
Performance is versus an IC 7800.
Yes it is not an R 390A or SP-600 but any one that could see a restored ONE , says WOWs... even little childs.
