You will get 100 different receivers from 100 people...My 2 favorites
are the SX101 Mark II and the 
NC183D...Both great selectivity and great Audio...

  Hi Everyone,
  I am new to boatanchors and need some advice. I am beginning to
collect antique radios. I want suggestions on what my first one should
be. I am living in a duplex so a xmitter is out of the questions, so I
thought I'd get a "nice" receiver to listen on. I would prefer something
that would also receive SSB as this will be my only reciever for a
while, but not at the sacrifice of selectivity on AM. I had a TS-850
that I unfortunately had to sell a few months back for a move for a new
job. It had great receive (and Xmit) on AM, and so I'm wanting something
in that caliber. I've read great things about the HQ-180A but I think
it's only AM and a little out of the price I'm looking for. I'd like to
find soemthing in the $300-350 range. Any suggestions???
