Sony ICR-S71 The pot of gold

Post by Deleted User 14803 » Fri Dec 07, 2018 2:47 pm

I was in my local St.Vincent De Paul store during lunchtime today and could not believe what was on the shelf ,it was a Sony ICR-S71 it’s an AM only portable receiver that is only available in Japan that came out earlier this decade and valued at around $140. US ,now of course I purchased this little gem and the store price tag was a whooping $10. with me being a senior they had a senior discount of 25% off today,this cost me $7.50 plus tax not bad for a little DX machine that normally cost $140. and is not available in the USA goes to show you never know what you can find in the re-sale shop these days.

You have to use the good brand of duct tape. The cheap stuff, they can work it loose with their tongue.

I wish. It's just one I've never even heard of, so I googled for a picture. Is it a good radio?

I had used it last evening and it’s great, reception fantastic selectivity on a scale 1-10 it’s a 9 ,the only thing that is under performing is no bass very high treble but for under $8. I can’t complain and it’s in cherry condition last night it did receive CBK 540 right here in Utica,Mich.so I think it will do.

It appears that it might have a sizeable speaker. It made me curious enough to go into a thrift store today.

Nothing but the dirty smell of old clothing.
