Hello Gian:

The R2Pro and SDR-1000 do not have "all that gain" at
audio.  The SDR-1000 is a a dual conversion receiver
with the last IF at 11025 Hz and the last mixing done

The problem with direct conversion receivers is that
all the gain is at audio frequencies.  
Why not to try a single conversion receiver where the
gain is equally distributed between IF and audio?
