Great rig, Great receiver-It has all been said.
On 6m CW-all I could say is WOWZER!. This rig hears past the noise level!.
I never had any ALC overshoot issue as I set the overall gain in the menu for only a little ALC action.
However I did have dislikes:
*Inferior Noise Blanker.
*Processor that NEVER sounded good.(Unlike TS-870s)
*Receive audio with weird DSP artifacts , without the DSP engaged.(With external L/S)
*Inferior fan control.
*Kenwood Shipping box that was labelled "Made in China."--so this rig was made in China?.
I now have an OLDER rig-PRO3, and although the NB is still not perfect-the Audio is very pleasing on the ears.
Product is in production.
