Selectivity is less than super radio I or II.I can't say about III. Sound most like middle to hi, some bass but not like SR II.FM made for Asian market. Think before you buy. If you intend to spend $99 you still have many choices. But me personally , I like Sony very much. Every Sony radio has some unique charm. Sony ICF-801 is not ultimate receiver but it pleasure to have this radio and sometimes enjoy broadcast with clear sound .

It's probably fair to assume that there will never be another 'Superadio'. EP was close, but no cigar. That era is gone.


I'm not a fan of the looks of this radio----not that looks really matter much to most of us----but seriously, I didn't think we could get less imaginative than the SRIII but Sony managed that feat. I still think the CC-EP is a spiritual successor to the Super Radio series though I agree with Dave---close but no cigar.


A web-connected device linked to a hi-fi Bluetooth speaker is the new SuperRadio.

I've been listening to KKNE out of Honolulu, HI using an iPad playing through a Sony BTX500; the reception is better than is physically possible with a radio receiver, and the sound is better than the SuperRadio 5268, all with no antenna and no wires..


Wahoo! My sister just picked one up for me in Kyoto! I will keep you posted when I get it!
