Nope, just another dreamer. I have two with the same status.

Why base your concern over some dreamer's asking price? It's what something actually sells for that determines it's value.

That one in the auction is the original model, and not a Superadio II as hoffies2 misstated in the title. The II model had two speakers.

Usually. Many consider the model II with it's tweeter the best sounding. Reception pretty much the same as the model I. Model III radios are lacking in almost all aspects, most notably quality.

Also, there is no official model "Superadio I". It was just a Superadio until model II came along.

I have two SR2's, and had previously owned an SR1 and an SR3, in order to compare performance. I found the SR1 and 2 to be reasonably equal in sensitivity, but as noted above, the SR2's audio sounded a bit better, thx to the extra speaker. The SR3 was a price point Chinese assembly, the build quality and performance of which was noticeably lacking vs the earlier models, which were also made in China.

So overall, the SR2's are certainly the best of the run, and by that virtue would be of higher value than the other two models. The also seem to be available in greater abundance than the SR1, indicating that they probably sold better when they were available new.
