Astonishing transceiver

ICOM IC-765, Desktop Shortwave Transceiver

This transceiver was made in the 90's, but it outperforms a lot of today transceivers.
If you don't like the sound of transceiver with DSP, just buy one ! (hard to find today, everybody keep them)
It has one of the best receivers ever made, it has 4 IF stages.

For SSB & DATA only

JRC NRD-345, Desktop Shortwave receiver

Excellent receiver for SSB, CW & Datamodes only.
Not for AM broadcast at all !!
In AM, the audio is very poor, filter is too narrow for good audio for broadcast listening.

Very good ergonomics.
