SDRplay will be announcing and showcasing a completely new product at Hamvention in Dayton, Ohio on May 18th. Building on the strengths of the underlying hardware technology, coupled with the power of SDRuno software, this radical new product will provide radio enthusiasts, engineers and researchers, with unique and truly exciting capabilities. Watch out for the announcement from Dayton, or visit our website at www.SDRplay.com on Friday 18th May, 2pm EDT.

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

Thanks for the heads-up on this.

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.
