Not one I've heard of, but bear in mind that it is a quattro and will require a multiswitch for connecting to your digibox or Sky+.

I read an article a while ago which explained why it was impossible to achieve an overall noise figure of less than 0.3db, due to the constraints of the available components, so I guess it depends on whether they describe it as typical or lowest.

Or maybe it was tested on a certain frequency at a certain temperature at a certain time of day in a vacum up on the space station with the lights switched off............ :D

I bought 2 twins. not tested it personally, but a friend had tried the other unit said it gave a lower signal quality than his previous Golden Interstar 0.3 . My asumption is that its comparable to a Invacon 0.3 or so

I was discussing this LNB with some guys who work for futuresat in limassol, as I was looking at buying one off ebay to see how it performed.


They have already tried one. I think it was a single LNB.

They didn't have many nice things to say about it despite trying on several dishs

I don't think I'll bother unless I hear something VERY positive about them.

I wrote to the technical director of a rival company about this and other things to do with LNBs and his reply was ( of the Smart Titanium 0.2):
'this LNB is not a 0.2dB LNB – In fact it is not possible – It is beyond the realms of physics.'
Be warned- he knows what he is talking about.

I sell the Smart Titanium LNBs.

They are available as Single, Twin or Quattro.

According to a recent test by a German magazine this is the best LNB on the market right now.

The comparsion to Invacom will be interesting,I'm going to try the same thing in a couple of weeks with an Interstar GI-201 on a Fibo 90cm.


Will be interesting to compare with the Invacom c120 single and the MTI c120 single that I have used on that dish before!

I can tell that Invacom Twin C120 is much better than the Invacom Single.

The MTI AP8-TW is only better than the Invacom on low freq vertical channels.

In other frequencies the MTI suffers really bad.

I have also tried them against the SMW X-Line with custom optional LO +/- 1MHz and the SMW is much better than both, i think i posted the results a few months back.
