Like others, I once owned the SX-190 and liked it.
It's not an SPR-4, but was beautiful enough to go
in the living room and the combination of ceramic
filter and Q multiplier worked well.

Mark Rehorst did a rather complete collection of
ads, reviews and modification articles for the AX/SX-190
including an article I wrote on modifying the bandswitch 
for more ranges below 10 MHz.  Collection available 
in a rar file at his site

One even compares it very favorably to the likes of an SPR-4, and HR-500 and a Collins 75-S3. That's a bit hard for me to swallow SO, I'm coming to you for the "straight skinny"!
