Pricey at $140.00----but I love the fact that it seems like a throwback to a "better" era. A radio like this will last a lifetime.

Did AM band extend to 1700 Khz,25 years ago?

Val:Thanks.I refered to audiocubes2.com too,as mentioned by Kim and got updated with this information:
''AM wide coverage of (to 1,705kHz reception) which can receive lighthouse broadcasting station - Possible AM wave (electric wave of 1,604kHz - 1,705kHz) reception [ship weather report (lighthouse broadcasting station 1670.5kHz)]; [traffic on the seas Information Board 1,665kHz]''

Vimal: You are absolutely right. It works in North America. I am testing this receiver side by side with Ex5mk2 and super radio II. After a while I will send update, but so far I’m pleased and very impressed from ICR-S71.

I have been playing around with one of these for a few months. The selectivity is amazing. A few weeks ago, during the hour after sundown in southwestern Michigan, I was able to clearly pick out a station on almost every frequency on the lower half of the dial (didn't have time for the upper half). Stations from Canada, the Midwest, NY/NJ, and the South were quite readable, even through strong local interference.

Doug: side by side Ex5mk2 with ICR-S71received a same stations in my apartment. Different is ICR-S71has absolute null perfectly combine with speaker sound. Sometimes I confused: quality of reception distance stations- like local!

Hello all. Just had a friend of mine pick up one of these in Osaka, Japan. Fantastic little AM only radio. Very sensitive and selective. Uses 2 D batteries (Came in package w/ radio). Should last a long time. Nice sounding speaker.

I will be getting one of these!! Val - does this radio have a slot for headphone and/or AC Adapter on either side? I'm looking forward to your comparisons with the ICF-EX5 MKII.

Doug H.

It has an adapter plug, but unfortunately, no headphone jack.

Bryne Hagstrom

Too bad. I'm wondering if one might be able to take off the back, remove the DC jack & replace it with a headphone jack wired to the speaker? No holes to drill....Hmmm....seems more useful for a radio like this to be headphone compatible vs. AC compatible. I want one!

Bryne Hagstrom

Val, we're anxiously awaiting the comparison video between the icrs71 and the ex5mk2! Enjoy.
