Some smudging around the knobs and wonky plastic in the battery compartment is far from heart-breaking; even without the tweeter this will sell for a load..

The moral of the story? Don't let the clowns at Radio Shack learn how to "fix" radios using your prized possession.

I seem to recall reading years ago that the performance of the Digital was not up to the SR 1 and 2. I think it was DX News when I was subscrbing to that and the Digital had just come out.

Ken: I think I saw that same point of view online once. My instincts tell me it's likely the older analogs are "better" than the digital-----less problematic and perhaps a shade better at DXing too. I guess the rarity of this model makes it valuable. I've always been curious about why the final Zenith Transoceanic (not even made in the USA) consistently brings more money than the final Made In USA 7000----which I think is a better radio. Again, I guess rarity helps drive the supply and demand equation.

Here's a Panasonic RF-2600 JUST LISTED, seller only wants $99 plus shipping. Wish he had posted a little more info, but these routinely bring about $220 shipped in that condition.

Brandon: It looks really nice. If it was the 2200, I might pull the trigger on a Buy It Now at 99 bucks.

The rarest of the Superadios is one of these...

It's a model #3-5268, and yes it is a Superadio. All in all there were four Superadios of this type:
The Super Stereo (3-6000b)

Supradio With Tape (3-5280)

And another really rare one that I'm looking for at the moment. Sorry to hold back on everybody but I lost mine in the fire, and I want another one bad. Not to be selfish but when one comes up on eBay (and they rarely do) I'm snagging it. I hope you understand.

Not may people know about these four models for some reason, but rest assured they are the real deal. They have the same tuner circuit right down to the t.r.f. design, ceramic filter, IF stages, six gang open air caps, and antennas. Performance? Exactly the same as the Superadio 1 and 2.
