I've emailed to request that they sell the SRF T615 on
their website. The vendor prices in Japan seem to keep going up so
maybe we can get a break direct from Sony. It might help if some of our
members made a similar request from Sony.

Sony has it listed in their 2009 "Overseas" catalog for 9400 Yen (~$95) before taxes. I believe the whole point of the catalog is to list items that are supposed to be for sale outside Japan, so it would make sense that some official Sony outlet would have them available.

Interestingly, the catalog also lists the ICF-SW7600GR at 40,000 Yen, which would be $406 at today's exchange rate. US list price is $200. Amazon has it for less than $140. Makes me wonder how much the SRF-T615 would cost if it was actively marketed in the US. Probably more like $50.
