I ran the NSD-515 transmitter with the NRD-515 receiver for many, many years. Worked a ton of rare DX. But the 100 Hz tuning steps just didn't cut it when using sharp CW filters. Had all the accessories.

I to have a 535D since 1995 and love it,Iuse a 110 foot inverted L on it and get great reception .I can hear SSB DX on 160 and 80 with it. I owned a 525 for a few years but traded it for the 535 I would like to get a 545 one day..To me they all sound somewhat flat.

The Kiwa capacitor mod might cure that - you can pick your choice of caps to suit the audio quality you like the best. ISTR I picked the "reduce bass" option after trying the "with bass" components.

....and of course my AM detector buffer mod makes it sound a lot better.... :)
