Just yesterday, I picked up the new Alinco DX-R8T from Durham Radio. Initial reaction is that this receiver is built like a tank with a metal case (cuts down on RFI) and is at least a bit more sensitive than my E-1. It is a definite keeper.

My review of the Alinco DX-R8T for the ODXA is available at the following link:

I've had a couple of DXers go out and buy it on my recommendation and were not disappointed.
