From the looks of this YouTube video, the speaker on the RF-2200 is probably smaller than you are expecting :

Cognitive dissonance. I thought I was having a bad dream.

Well before I shell out the dough for a 2200, I'll see how my Panasonic 1080 sounds. Gerald swears it's fantastic for AM/FM.

remember these radios (2200's) are 30 years old. i got one that was well cared for.but as you know, not everybody treats their radio the same. a lot of abuse can occur in that time! i would hate for you guys to shell out 250 and get a radio that has a tired speaker. its the chance you take when trying to find radio nirvana.

Jeff McMahon

That is quite a risk. I'll be happy if I get that 1080 for 25-30 dollars.

gerald johnson

30 bucks for the 1080 will be 30 well spent

Gerald, I'm afraid you're exactly right. Buying an RF-2200 of eBay is a gamble, and a potentially expensive one. I'm jonesin' over the some of the RF-2200's I see listed, and would spend $250 for a good one, but I freeze up and don't bid. I just lost a bid on a GE SR One because I'll risk $100, but not $250. I've even been thinking of buying cheap busted-up RF-2200's for parts. It can get crazy.

Having the radio bug means you chase novelty, which is fleeting by definition, and you have to be realistic with yourself about that or you will be perpetually disappointed.

One observation I would make is that you don't want to be completely without analog tuning because it affects your listening habits. You bandscan more with analog and find pleasant surprises.

mike thats why i really prefer analog. it has feel and touch that digital doesnt have. its nice to slide in and around frequencies and find a station youve been targeting.i dont have a ge super radio. i ve been wanting to try one out, but im swimming in radios now
