The SDRPlay RSPdx: Usable for MW DX-ing?

I have had the opportunity to play with the new RSPdx from SDRPlay for a few weeks now. It seems to have been well received among SDRPlay customers. They have introduced "HDR" mode, a specially designed mode for operations below 2 MHz. So, how does it perform? I have tested it with weak signals in the Arctic, and with high signal levels further south. My impressions can be read here.

The coverage of the (0-MW) MW Broadcast Band is 500 kHz - 1750 kHz and not 550 kHz - 1700 kHz as stated in the article.

I have an SDRPlay RSPdx and also a Microtelecom Perseus used with a Wellbrook ALA 1530 antenna in an urban setting in the UK.

I have heard more MW dx with the RSPdx than the Perseus and now use the RSPdx exclusively.

Thanks for the article and 73s.
