but you still need a computer to decode the 12khz signal ...

Is there a version available that's a legitimate receiver, without all
the DRM silliness?

Yes, agree completely.  Skip the mickey mouse stuff and concentrate on
HF/FM/AM signals.

Somebody said that it has an IF output, not an integrated DRM decoder. I
don't know if it is a 12 kHz IF center freq that can be fed into a computer
sound card or a higher IF that would require a downconverter. In any case,
this is hardly mickey mouse (altho' some say SSB speech sounds m-m) because
it makes it very convenient to use IF and demodulator DSP. While you can use
such for DRM decoding, you also can use software DSP for
AM/SSB/CW/NBFM/digital modes with superlative filtering, noise reduction,
spectral display, etc. Very advanced stuff. If the KK-DRM01 has very low
phase noise, it could be a really low-cost, effective tuner/front end for a
software defined radio using free software such as SDR and Dream; look out
Ten-Tec RX-320D! The Kchibo would have the advantage that it can be
unplugged from the computer and used on its own.

Found some reports from DRM'ers in Europe who somehow acquired the KK-DRM01
last fall:  http://www.drmrx.org/forum/archive/index.php/t-1147.html . It is
not a DRM receiver in its own right but has a 12 kHz IF output for software
decoding. It works with Dream but appears to have pretty high phase noise.
Might work OK with other DSP demodulator modes, e.g., synch AM, ECSS, AM,
SSB, ....

The early users were not enthusiastic - the SW range is discontinuous:
"2.300 - 7.300 MHz in 5 kHz steps and
9.500 - 26.100 MHz in 5 kHz steps."

TH,

Sounds like another good old fashion
"Ready for TV" type Radio from the 1950s.

i will pass and wait for a real drm radio ~ RHF

 Then, what are you going to do with your E1 ?

GSW - Doh ! - I Be E1'ing It ~ RHF

Get your Brain around this concept of "Plug-and-Play"
The Eton E1 AM / FM Shortwave Receiver with
'opinional' XM Satellite Radio is "Plug-and-Play"
As easy as adding an External Speaker and simply
Listening to the Radio. { No Computer Required }

"IF" a DRM Radio had a 'opinional' DRM Module
that was "Plug-and-Play" - That I might consider.
