You are absolutely right.  Scott, stated in his informational release that
the Orion would utilize both methods.  He also said that the main receiver
(using the crystal filters) would be ham band only, so I assume it will use
a crystal mixed oscillator like the Omni V and VI.  The sub-receiver will be
full coverage and use only DSP technology.

I was under the impression that the Orion's main
receiver would be xtal-filtered and not an all-dsp
affair, a la 340/350/Jupiter.  Not sure where I got
the impression from though.  I'd envision an Omni VII
(upgraded Omni VI+) with an RX350 subreceiver, but I
guess we're shooting in the dark until the new baby is
