Apparently you DIDN'T read Grant's post. That is WHERE the KWS-1 was
As to SSB, the KWS-1 IS fine. As to AM - It transmits a carrier and
ONLY one SIDEBAND. Thereby being POOR for DSB with carrier since it
ONLY O-N-E sideband with CARRIER.
Therefore my comment that IT has ISSUES!
I have owned an S-Line station with 312B-4. Precisely a 32S-3A, 75S-3A,
and a 516F-2 power supply in the external speaker As to which amplifier
used is UNIMPORTANT. Albeit I do prefer the 30S-1.
SSB is fine for narrow bandwidth comms. It's one reason that Uncle Sam
went to it.
For pure audio quality, I much prefer my BC-610 or T-213 with either my
SP-600 and/or the R-390A.
