Unfortunately, the marketing material fora ll the vendors is going to
say crap like that. And nobody who has the equipment necessary to
objectively compare things like multipath performance across devices
are going to publish their findings due to competitive interests.
Also, you cannot just look at the demod, the tuner itself is a factor
as well (and in some cases the pairing of the demod/tuner).
