Looking forward to hearing more about this radio, and perhaps updating the setup I use :)

Thanks for the heads-up on this.

I was just thinking the exact same thing :)

The issue I have with SDRPlay is that I heard from other software developers that their device library either doesn't link or doesn't connect to the device on one or more recent versions of macOS or the latest Raspberry Pi OS release. Have they fixed this so that SDR software developers can write apps to use their radio(s) on non-Windows OS's?

A dual tuner is a radical new product? Really?!?

While it does offer a few things over other USB SDRs, I would've added a USB3 port to differentiate it a bit more.

I had a quick look...

I don't know how the device performs, but I can't seem to find any info on SDRuno being able to do serious frequency-scanning. It appears to be manual frequency selection only.

That may work well for HAM listening, but for my use I wouldn't like to be without a scanner-option.

The full frequency-range, without needing an up-converter, is very appealing though.

Their other, less expensive products (RSP1A, RSP2) also have a full frequency range.
