It just works and well  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
Well built, installation and setup accomplished in just a few minutes. Had a look inside, very professional construction. Support is just an email away and prompt. My only criticism is a personal preference, I would like all cabling to come from one panel but it is no big deal.

Awesome Panadapter!!!  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
This panadapter is advertised to be compatible with the FTdx3000, 5000 or the Orion II with a 9 MHz tap installed. I tried one of these panadapters, serial number 1, on my FTDX3000 and was blown away. First off, I like the 3K's quiet RX but their fish finder display leaves much to be desired. Using both HRD for radio control and HDSDR for a great panoramic display, the signals just pop out at you. Having the two programs linked by the DDE interface allows "point and click" frequency control of the radio, really nice. Setup is a snap, just plug in 3 RCA plug terminated cables and a USB cable to the PC and you are done. The software will have to be calibrated but that only takes a few minutes. This has now changed my thoughts on looking for an expensive SDR transceiver to replace my 3000. All in all, for the ease of setup/operation as well as the reasonable price, it is hard to beat. The other advantage to this panadapter is that it is not sound card based. So you are not limited to 192 Khz maximum display width assuming you have a high quality sound card. If you have an FTdx3000, 5000 or an Orion II with the 9 MHz IF tap installed you will want to try this adapter to give a new dimension to your operating pleasure.
