The receivers are basically the same.....probably the best of all CBs. If you like a boatload of extra channels the D858 chip is what you want.

Well I own the Old President Washington with the 858 and the newer Uniden Washington both and the receive is much quieter and better sounding on the old style. just sayin.

i found the old 858 one a better am rig with louder modulation on both am and ssb but i got weird images on the receiver when 2 close stations ffrom other channels mixed together. the am receiver tone on the 8719 is muffled but the ssb tone seems richer and no images so i like the 8719 better for ssb and the 858 better for am. but why have a ssb rig if your going to talk am? i allways thought it would look cool to have both side by side and use the 5858 for am the 8719 for ssb

thanks for the replies. im gonna buy then. im not a power kinda guy but receive is what i want in a radio. i have the newer madison now and i would hate to downgrade....as long as its not like the muffled noise that comes out of the washington im happy. i have tried everything to make my washington better but at the end of the day it sits on the shelf wishing it could be like the madison...im not to concerned with extra channels but its good to know thats an option. i have multiple mic options at my disposal but im partial to the turner plus 3 and my expander 500. dont tell the neighbors but i just dont like astatic mics even though i have a few. like i said receive is most important. good clean quiet receive. as long as it will be like my current madison and my 2000 i will be happy as can be. again my thanks

i should clarify, i had the washingtons not the madisons. the madison 8719 is the same guts as the cobra 2000 so the am will sound excellent on receive. that one i did have and loved it. one rig i wish i had kept
