You can know it all you want, but I (for one) have yet to hear it!!

Citing all the numbers is interesting, but - AM sounds better, 
full stop.
There is no reason why amateur equipment can't be as good 
on SSB as the fancy postcard sized thingy with the digiswitchews.

Through a 2 or 3 inch diameter loudspeaker, almost anything 
sounds as bad as anything else though!

Once I hear a DSB (digi-slop-bucket) box that sounds as good as 
a top quality AM signal, I wil concede, but it hasn't happened yet!
