This very small SDR Receiver is truly Amazing!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
The Ensemble II, built and tested by Tony Parks, arrived at 10:00 AM. I installed the unit and had it on the air by 10:30 AM. I must admit that I hv run a Flex since 2006 and hv experience with the SDR's which made the installation a no brainner. I compared the receive quality to my Flex 5000, switching between the two instantly. If I close my eyes, I cannot discern any difference between the two. I am running the PowerSDR v2.4.4 software on Windows 7 with the Softrock and I installed it on an XP machine also and it wrked equally well. The panadapter view is identical to my Flex 5000. I am a happy camper. It wud wrk well married to any conventional transceiver with a T/R relay. The only observaton that I want to call to ur attention is that an image of the synthesizer is down abt 8kc from the received frequency. I do not find this objectionable. Tonite I paired it up with my Icom 706M2G with an interface that I put together and it wrked flawlessly with the features of the Flex. The best of all worlds. Nice Job, Tony!
