The final bandwidth of 600 kHz might be a problem for many FMDXers, especially as the alternatives have several MHz bandwidth.

This is indeed a downside ... But I rarely use more than 1.5 MHz BW.
Regarding this new SDR, I don't understand if the maximum BW is 600 kHz in any case, or if it's the final bandwidth after decimation ...

Yes, the 600 kHz is after decimation. There doesn't seem to be an option to use the HF+ with less decimation or no decimation, like there is for Airspy.
