I have an old Realistic Clock radio from the same era. The "digital" time numbers long ago stopped flipping, but I keep the radio in the back room in my basement for when I'm puttering around down there. It's an amazing DXer for what was originally a $25 clock radio some 40 years ago.

I usually keep it tuned to 1010 WINS or 660 WFAN in NY, but at night I can easily pick up 650 WSM and 1000 Sports out of Chicago with little or no spillover. Not too many of my radios are that selective.

And it looks cool to boot. I found an old Marantz receiver on the Bay (was looking for the same reason you were). And I got a pair of "Baby Advent" speakers at a church rummage sale----still in their original box and those work well. System sounds great.

I bought the STA-120 receiver back in the early 70's, and I remember it was built by Hitachi. I also remember it getting rewarded stereo receiver of the year in one of the hi-fi magazines. It was my first receiver and it served me until the mid 80's when I sold it after buying the YAMAHA M-80, C-80, and T-80 stereo system...which I still own today.
