Avion gets mixed reviews from DRMNAers

The Avion DR-1401 has been out awhile, and the overall word on the street is not great. As with the Newstar DR-111, the Avion can have firmware upgrades. Let's hope that improves the situation.

So far we have heard about units arriving fully-bricked and units with serious sensitivity issues. Analogue appears lackluster too.

Often it appears that the ergonomics of DRM receivers to date have been user-hostile at best. Perhaps only engineers make radios, not radio enthusiasts! It has been suggested that dongle based receivers to be used with mobiles and tablets may be the answer? I guess we need to wait and see.
