About £270 on this site for the non-sexy A+ version, so may well be one of the most expensive AM/FM radios.

I'd love to know who , if anyone , is actually buying these radios ? JFKs . HARRYs , TEDDYs , TAYLORs etc ? I don't think many people are . That's why they're so f'n expensive . If anyone in President had a brain then they would ask Joe public (us) what we want in a radio .

Just add ssb and all toys into them all, and make them cheaper.

Exactly.

What does it do that a £50 CRT One N cannot do?

Overpriced and overrated.

There is no such thing as a Fidelity 1000 which is too good to scrap.

The crt one or the albrecht clone would do just as well.
