If you own a Drake R8, R8A or R8B, this is a wonderful accessory to help improve the quality of sound from your receiver.  Over the years, I have used a variety of speakers with my equipment as the onboard speakers are rarely of such a quality that allows for pleasant listening over a long period of time.  Some of the manufacturers did offer accessory speakers to improve the rather thin sound coming from their communications equipment.  Drake offered the MS8 to compliment it's line of high end consumer receivers and it does make a noticeable difference.

This MS8 is in excellent cosmetic condition looking virtually new in appearance.  I have sold several of these MS-8 speakers over the years, but this one is probably the nicest one to pass through my hands and should appeal to the collector or to a person expecting the best example of this item.  The prior owner has installed an RCA style connector on the end and then added the RCA to 1/4" adaptor plug to enable this speaker to operate off of a wide variety of receivers.  The speaker comes with the original Drake spec sheet.

Most people are not aware that the line of Drake R8 series receivers have a wonderful audio circuit.  In fact, as good as this MS8 sounds, a larger speaker can sound even better.  However, this speaker matches the R8 series in appearance, is reasonably small, and is a good compromise between the need for good copy on weak signals and improved sound for listening.  It comes with a 1/4" plug that conveniently snaps into a socket on the rear of the receiver.  You then move the speaker selector switch on the rear panel to "external" and are up and running in less than 30 seconds....no muss, no fuss.

I am happy to answer any questions you may have regarding the MS8.  Most questions will be with regards to shipping.  Cost to ship may be determined by using the shipping calculator and includes insurance.

Those buyers living outside the continental USA are welcome to use the calculator for the cost to ship to you.  Sometimes this estimated cost is too high, and if you overpay, I refund back the difference.  I regularly ship to buyers living outside the US border and it is my joy to do so, but please remember that this cost does not include any import, duty, or VAT fees. Please contact your local customs or post office to determine if you may be responsible any additional costs.

The buyer to pay via Paypal with payment expected within 3 days after purchase of the MS8.  Ebay does not permit us to list other accepted forms of payment so I will refrain from doing so as I do not want them to remove my listing as is their policy.  Please email if you have any questions.

Penna residents are reminded that they are responsible for the 6% state sales tax.

Thank you for taking the time out of your busy day to look at my Ebay items!
