Default What's the difference in these receivers?

My Sportster SP-R1 bit the dust and I was looking for one to replace it (I've got several different docks and I don't want to change models). I found several SP-R1R receivers on eBay but I don't know what the difference is between the R1R and the R1. Can anyone enlighten me?

Thanks in advance... Jeff

If I remember correctly they are both basically the same.

SP-R1 older model
SP-R1R newer model with replay feature added.

They should sit in the same dock.

BenDee will become famous soon enough

R1R is the version from RadioShack. It should be 99% similar, but because there were several versions of the original Sportster that had the same model number, I cannot definitively tell you what the changes were, but that they were relatively insignificant.
