    Can it receive analogue and DRM LONGWAVE for region 1 ?
    I dont see any indication of balance LW ferrite!
    also does it have bandwidth selection for analogue reception? If so, up to what maximum setting would it have for AM?. The DR111 only has up to 6khz BW not allowing to listen to full AM BW for better audio quality on many analogue audio!
    Will it decode Cquam stereo?
