    I want to know if the Sony demodulators are of a decent quality. I know that the Kenwoods are but I dont have that kind of money at this time. And the Sony's are pretty affordable. Thanks

    To my knowledge there's only a single source for the IC to make these work so the Sony and the Kenwood should offer essentially the same performance.

    Ive used Sony, Kenwood, Yamaha, Lexicon, Pioneer, and Nakamichi demods. I have not been able to tell the difference.
    FWIW, I am selling a couple of Sony pre amps with built in demods in the For Sale area now.
