Maybe it is just the particular unit I got, but I didn’t like the ICF-S10MK2. It had a lot of “grunge” noise in the background, almost as though something was oscillating. Tuning was very fast also.
Sony made a number of different radios in this series; all with fairly similar appearance but vastly different performance and quality. Some were made in China and some were made in other parts of Asia.
The one I have that I really like is the ICF-S14 (in black). It was made in China. This particular model had very good sensitivity and selectivity. I have logged thousands of stations with it, listening in bed mostly. (Of course, that was before the IBOC debacle)! I think this particular set was discontinued, but if you find one it could be a good catch.
