The tuner is really sensitive, much more sensitive than the TD i owned, it's in line with the Topfield TF5000MP i had.
Another reason was that the manufacturer have a very open communication with the community compared to Dreambox when it comes to improvements and working out eventual bugs.
But the most important reason i bought it was the high quality of the components all over including a real chassi compared to Dreambox cheap plastic chassi and faulty power supplies and weak tuner, the VFD display in the front can display 13 characters, no receiver i know of today can do that.
The receiver has alot going for it and i am bit surprised the community on the net has grown so fast in such a short time.
Most of the popular EMUs are available for it and part of some images.
Great thing with RonalDD image is that you can upgrade from the internet directly.
Feels very solid and the best part is the price for this kind of beast.
