Hi Dennis - That is what the data sheets say, but in 2017 I took some> measurements comparing 9 genuine RCA CDP1802AEs, 6 genuine RCA

Thanks. I followed your original discussion with interest, and that
thread was the reason I was careful to say "spec" rather than "actual
performance." I was having trouble re-finding the thread. The main
thing I was after in this query was to make sure that the AE(X) chips
don't have some other significant difference from e.g. the ACE ones.
