eBay find: NOS Kenwood R-1000 Receiver

Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Dan Robinson, who discovered this like new Kenwood R-1000 on eBay. Dan notes:

This just went up on Ebay — a seemingly new and unused R-1000. Price is actually not high for one in this condition [$450 US]. I would jump on this if I didn’t already have one in this shape….

The seller also has a “Make Offer” option. Perhaps they would even be more flexible? I’ve never owned an R-1000, but I do love the simple design and have used it enough to know it’s a great receiver with excellent audio. The fact that Dan Robinson and Dave Zantow give it such a good report speaks volumes.

    Sold for $450, hope they enjoy lots of DX’ing with that great looking receiver. Thanks for posting.

    I’m still kickin’ myself for getting rid of mine. So simple to operate. And today, the wheat lights to LED upgrades and having this receiver powered EXT +12VDC, instead of the heat pumping built-in power supply, will make one of these receivers last for years to come.
