Walkman® AM/FM Stereo Radio
This little radio is my "go to" radio for extended listening sessions to radio stations. In Seattle we have an oldies station (880 KIXI) that plays radio dramas several nights a week. The little Sony SRF-59 has a very big, comfortable sound, even in comparison to my expensive specialized ham radio and a general coverage receiver. The unique Sony on a chip design, low IF and very quiet circuity make for a quality listening experience. The radio has outstanding selectivity and sensitiviity. This design wins contests all over the world, pulling in transcontinental stations on a good dawn morning sometimes.
I run audio through my TUBE headphone amplifier and studio monitor headphones for an amazing listening experience. The sound is warm, liquid and lively without the annoying chuff of digital tuning or other artefacts found in almost all other radios. Battery life is phenomenal.

AM/FM Walkman Radio (SRF-59SILVER)
I ordered the radio on a Sunday afternoon and it was delivered two days later. The radio is extremely lightweight but the sound quality is excellent. This radio replaced my old Walkman, and although this one does not have the buttons to store station settings, etc., it cost a lot less than my old Walkman. Maybe the next generation will have a wireless headset (at a vastly increased cost).

I will buy these as long as they sell them, which I hope is a very long time!! Don't hesitate....GET ONE & try it..you will love it! Takes one battery and as the title said....the stations come in crystal clear..I am amazed and grateful to SONY for this great radio!! Thanks!
