    Airspy HF+ (Coming soon) can run on a 1GHz Pentium computer or Raspberry PI 3.
    The specs on this Airspy HF+ says this is a DX beast Tuner. http://airspy.com/airspy-hf-plus/

    New Airspy HF+ Pics and Sensitivity Test. Quoting the Airspy HF+ tester. "So why choose the HF+ over the Airspy R2, Mini or SDRplay which all have larger frequency ranges and bandwidths? It seems the focus of the HF+ is to be an extremely high dynamic range receiver. This means that strong signals should almost never overload the receiver making it very good for DXing weak signals (listening to weak signals from very far away). On other receivers once you turn the gain up strong signals can block reception of the weaker ones". If the Airspy HF+ can do this then this is the SDR to get for DXing. It also can use SpyServer software to allow multiple users to stream high quality IQ data from the same receiver at the same time. No compromises in the quality were made like it is usually done in Web SDR interfaces. The server software is highly scalable and can run on computers as small as the $7 Orange Pi Zero to top end 64bit servers with multiple cores/cpus, passing by the popular Raspberry Pi series. in other words a DXer from anywhere around the world can use a Airspy HF+ that is on the internet to DX where there is E-Skip or Tropo going on. Many users can be DXing on one Airspy HF+ SDR. This is way better than Global Tuners Remote controlled radio receivers where you only can have one or two Dxers using one Tuner.

    VHF coverage starts at 60 up through 260 MHz. If your a analog, digital TVDXer after channel 2 (54-60 MHz) your out of luck.

    680khz bandwidth??? Sorry but I'll take my Airspy Mini (6mhz) and my RSP1&2 (10mhz on the 2, 8mhz on the 1). With the FM band in such disastrous shape as it is in the USA, selectivity is the big thing, not sensitivity. From reading the material it seems the main thrust of this SDR is for remote use, like Global Tuners. But realistically, how many people are into that? I wonder. Somehow I don't see many, if any, FM DXers throwing their SDRs away and buying this one. Unless I'm missing something.
