I suppose the price premium is for the ability to record the whole FM band, which most likely is going to take a lot of drive space unless a compression method has been found for the latest release.

Doesn't the overall performance roll off due to the wider bandwidth?

We need to wait for one of our wealthy members to buy one and evaluate its FMDX performance. I'm sure one or two are tempted.

The logical thing would be to think the overall performance will be penalized because of the extremely broad bandwidth, do you think so?.

I don't actually think it is available yet.

They started publicising this last year. It's taking rather a long time to surface. Problems?

I also read that the performance would be compromised because of the extra bandwidth.
