Hi Alexander,

the monster DAC was our first idea since it is already on stock. The
cost for sourcing and stocking a new part should never be
underestimated...

Also the 160MSPS allow us to interpolate e.g by 1:100 and then only
apply very simple post-DAC filtering, as the first mirror is very far
away.

Also 375MHz and up is a bit mood from my POV since our E4000 starts at
about 65MHz. The ham radio 144MHz band should be covered as should the
"NATO band".

Best regards,
Christian
