I love my 888. It's one of those radios that I won't consider selling----and that says a lot.
The only radio I've had that I regret selling is a Sony Japan Market 5800, which was one of the best AM and shortwave performers I've ever had. I thought it would fetch a lot more money than it did----and I miss it. My Panny 888 is destined to stay in my collection.

The RF-888 is among my favorite radios, too. Superb AM and FM performance, and it's built like a tank.

This one appears to be in very good condition. Some surface grime on the control panel, but that's easy to remedy with cotton swabs and detail spray.

I might have to bid on this. I realize sound is subjective, but how does the speaker sound for music? I listen to a lot of classical and jazz.

Carlos, without me getting too rhapsodic, the RF-888 captures the glory of the vintage sound rather well. I love its sound, but as you say it's subjective.

This might be a stupid question, but what is the switch on the lower right side of the front of the radio? The label says "Set Time".

The knob on the lower right timer of my 888 is a timer. It can be used to either turn the radio on or off when the timer winds down. For me it is kind of like a manual sleep timer.

By the way, with all the hoopla over how the CC Radio is "made for talk radio" and how they invested so many years of research into perfecting audio for the human voice----my Panasonic 888, made in the early-mid 1970's, blows the Sangean away for crystal clear talk audio.

This auction is up to $79 with 2 days to go. It's got to go over $100 since it looks to be in very good condition.
