Greatly appreciated, Gerald, because as I've posted elsewhere here (perhaps ad nauseum, sorry if so), I own a PR-D5 and am torn between picking up a CSW, a vintage RF-2200, or a SR I/II in lieu of the ever-receding Satellit 750.

I'm no radio engineer but I've tried or at least read up on quite a few sets over the years, and I consider the PR-D5 to be an under-appreciated sleeper. It's a match for the CCRadio, and I was expecting the CSW to under-perform it, certainly not to exceed it. I'm glad to hear they're comparable.

I just caught Arnie Coro from Havana for the first time in ages, then a little Radio Sweden, and it has me thinking I'd like a set with SW and a decent tuning knob. I think I'll get a CSW.

I love the solid old analog sets, but the bottom line with the RF-2200 is you're accepting a lot of trade-offs for that last performance increment. I hope I'll get one eventually, but it's really one for the purists.

if you enoy shortwave tuning and monitoring, id get the ccsw. you already have (pr-d5) a radio that will do what the ge super does, and probably does it better.
