https://radiojayallen.com/sangean-wr-55-am-fm-table-radio/     Neat!!! Ya know, I do miss those 1970's, and early 80's, analog, high-powered, table radios from Sony, Panasonic, Realistic, and I had one from RCA, that mysteriously just disappeared on me. (Huh???) Not the best DX'ers, but I did like the warm, rockin', audio from those.
Recently, a co-worker quizzed me on, "What would happen if you were to apply reverse polarity to the Energizer Bunny?". Having no idea, I asked, "What would happen?". The answer is he'd keep coming and coming and coming...

Looks like a great kitchen radio, or one you'd leave on in the house when gone for a few hours.... Would fill the place with the sound of voices. The radio's 25 watt audio amp transistor looks like it's quite capable of driving the speaker at a decent volume.

Cool they made this... a bit pricey, but looks well made from the photos RadioJayAllen took.
An AM radio Boombox DXer.
+ GE SRIII, PR-D5 & TRF on MW.
The usual Realistic culprits on SW (and a Panasonic).
