I did a full test of Kiztech amplifier. The amp was provided by MLord for testing (Thanks Mark).
I did not test the Famously low power WVNY-DT yet because I have to put up my new mast of 10 feet of my chimney because of the nice weather we are been having here.
But, I did a head to head with the Addison GE ( 6db noise ) amp. I put two GE amps in series to give a gain of 20 dB.
Samsung Plasma TV
Archer Small VHF-UHF combo, the UHF is null because of CM 0549 combiner.
Sanyo 19 LCD TV
Regal 2 way Splitter.
Antennas are pointed at the Mont-Royal.
The two amps were placed just at the output of the combiner outside.
Single output to Samsung TV:
Kitz Tech: on the digital channels; SRC, CBC, WCAX, WPTZ, WCFE and TQS, I noticed a gain of one
bar on my signal meter compared to the GE amps. Global 46 was a bit better also. Very small advantage Kitz.
Now with the splitter connector and the Sanyo plus Samsung TV:
The GE amp looses 2
bars on the digital channels and the weak analogues are about 10 % lower. WPTZ at one
bar with the GE and 3
bars with the Kitz. Advantage Kitz.
Kitz Tech: No change at all between single load or double load. It looks like a good low noise distribution amp solution.
With the Kitz tech inside the house with 25 feet of coax after the combiner:
The digital channels were weaker 2-3 bars. WPTZ was gone and also CBC. Global 46 CKMI analogue was not affected, same picture.
The WVNY-DT test will be coming soon, it will be a test of the CM 7777, GE amps and Kitz Tech connected to the TivoHD.
