I've never seen this radio before but it looks like a very interesting unit. I did a little research on it myself and I see it has an Aux. input as well as a sub-woofer and headphone output. The speakers are rated at 10 watts each. Has a 75-ohm co-ax FM antenna input as well as standard AM antenna input. If the AM and FM reception are as good as everyone says they are, this may well be my next radio purchase. Thanks for bringing attention to what looks like a great radio!

I have had mine for a little over a week and I love it. I just need to find a place for it. The sounds is great as is the reception. A few things that are a little odd. The tuning dial is a little off so 103.7 is more like 104.1. Not a big deal. I did a little sound check vs. my Model 88. The Model 88 has a fuller sound but the sub woofer just is too much. The AR I would say has great base without any of that thump thump thump of a subwoofer. Love it. I may have to sell the 88

Back in the 1960s, Acoustic Research was a company that produced speakers and was owned by Teledyne. I really don't have a place for this radio but I'm happy to see they're still around.

It was but went under a few years ago and Audiovox bought the name. Still it seems to be a quality radio. I wonder who makes it?

As somebody comment here this radios is being selling in Europe as Bernstein ITR10 at €400 more or less...and is exactly the same radio, except for the finishing (more flavours available on Europe)..

Just openned mine last night - I love it. Everything above and more. Only comment is that the radio was sent in a box with no styrofoam, so the radio took some hard hits. One screw was rolling around inside, and one of the tubes was partially detached. I fixed both. Rather do that than wait for another with worse damage. Although I like it so much, I am thinking of buying a second one and storing it until the 1st one dies or gets broken. Remote works great with ipod, but 5th generation ipod does not charge... onwers manual tells which ipods work - charge and play and which on play.
