RE: Too much converter noise

Yes, that may happen. But don't mess with (converter/amplifier) gain and
noise.
Somewhere somebody mentioned even conversion gain and noise gain! Huh?
Here's some newbies around that may get confused and mislead...
Noise will allways degrade system perfromance and should keep as low as
possible
in general. Actually it is noise to signal rate that counts and on what
level you can
find the optimum S/N ratio of the whole receiving system.
Or am I misleading?
