With the audio DSP in my FT-857D, I don't find the DSP CW narrow filter
enhances a weak signals signal to noise. It remove QRM but doesn't bring
the signal out of the noise. The mechanical filter at the 455 KHz IF
does enhance the signal to noise ratio of a really weak signal (ten or
15 dB below the noise).

Attaining that narrow selectivity is one thing. Having it with out
ringing is another, and having it with out too much time delay to
interfere with manual tuning is yet another.
