I picked up the 14bit RSP1A several months back. It is actually quite astonishing in it's abilities and sounds exceptional when connected to a good DAC. I recently hooked it up to my external FM omni and compared it to the CT-7000. In general, not as musically satisfying but not by a large gap. On very difficult channels I was able to get a satisfactory audio experience on the SDR that the Yamaha could not touch. Also, the SDR is a lot of run and you can play with most any frequency 1kHz through LF, MW, HF, VHF, UHF and L- band to 2GHz (assuming the right antenna etc). Probably the most audio/tuner fun for little coin I have found in recent years!
