Interesting timing. Lots of improvements over the original RSP1.

Mine is on the way. Also, it is actually less expensive by several bucks overall to buy direct.

Got it up and running last night. Nice little radio. Noise is noticeably less than the RSPY1. Sensitivity is great.

Good to hear. Mine is still in transit. Left Heathrow last Saturday, no record of arriving in Toronto. I went the cheap route, mail, rather than courier.

Have you had an opportunity to see how it performs on LW and AM Broadcast band ?

The new Icom IC7610 cant even get a calibrated S-meter right on a direct sampling radio and this sub 200 radio can do it.

SDRPLAY could sell 1000;s more if they produced it with a quasi peak detector and with EMC bandwidths.

Yes. The MW filter works quite well to tame all the crud leaking into LW and 160m. MW reception is good, as would be expected, and the same MW notch filter helps out some on picking DX out from overbearing adjacent locals.

Thanks for the reply,  sounds like they may have improved the filtering down there.
