ETA (2021-09-01):
It is old mistake when these both models, X and Xplus are mixed here in same thread. If later Siglent produce different different models where HW etc is very different, even if model number is nearly same etc. It is best to keep both tightly in totally separate threads for avoid confusion and mess what can also see here in this thread many pelaces.

Naturally one reason for this mess is Siglent not so good product model numbering what quite easy produce confusion and mess... but here Siglent is not alone - unfortunately.

My proposal is that who ever write and comment in this thread, please inform every time in every message which one  you talk.

SSA3000X and SSA3000Xplus  are very different products!!! Even when they have lot of same functions but they have different HW and they are different in FW and different in many details, including that SDS3000XPlus HW is SVA1000X brother but SSA3000X is not.

So, please,  when you talk, make it clear if you talk about X or XPlus model.

old continue

Preliminary, coming in the near future. Siglent new Spectrum analyzer serie is SSA3000X 

There is 9kHz - 2.1GHz and 9kHz - 3.2GHz models with and without tracking generator.

Min RBW 10Hz
DANL -161 dBm/Hz
Full freq range tracking gen. (2.1 or 3.2GHz) in SSA3000X-TG models
10.1"  1024x600 TFT

Some optional features and accessories.

My rough estimate about prices is ~6k$  -  <12k$   depending model without optionals.  So it is not targeted  for low end hobby markets "spectrum analyzer".  Are there also coming some cheap model for bottom entry level.... I have not seen any signs.  Price estimate was derived from some chinese sides before product was really launched.

---------------------------------------------------------
EDIT/ADD: As we all know today, prices are totally in different class what was preliminary quessing.



Dave J.  have done nice tear down video + some compare.

The UI looks certainly nice, as does the external design. The specs aren't really exciting, though:

ftp://www.siglent.com/www/Uploadfile/File/20150930/SSA3000X_datasheet.pdf

RBW: 10Hz to 1MHz

Frequency resolution: 1 Hz

Internal Reference:
Reference frequency accuracy: <0.2 ppm
Temperature stability: <1 ppm, 0 ? 5
Frequency aging rate: <0.5 ppm / first year, 3.0 ppm / 20 years

Phase Noise:
<-95 DBc / Hz @ 10 kHz offset, <-98 dBc / Hz (typ)
<-96 DBc / Hz @ 100 kHz offset, <- 97 dBc / Hz (typ)
<-115 DBc / Hz @ 1 MHz offset, <-117 dBc / Hz (typ)

Distortion and spurious response:
Second Harmonic Distortion (fc ? 50 MHz, the mixer level -30 dBm, input attenuation 0 dB, the preamplifier off, 20 ? to 30 ?): -65 DBc
Third order intercept point (fc ? 50 MHz, two-tone input level -20 dBm, frequency spacing 100 kHz, the input attenuation 0 dB, the preamplifier off, 20 ? to 30 ?): +10 DBm
1 dB gain compression (fc ? 50 MHz, the input attenuation 0 dB, the preamplifier off, 20 ? to 30 ?): > -5 DBm, nominal value

Scan Points: 751

If that's true then this is pretty expensive, considering that the 3GHz Rohde & Schwarz FSC (which has comparable specs) starts at below $6k, and that is from a big reputable brand.

nice video!

Nice to see a decent image, I had heard whispers of a new SA.

Dubbie:
The price does seem a bit off. Considering there are a bunch of "name brand" SA's you can get for that with equal or better specs. IMHO though, it's a really nice looking unit! (Except that ugly logo)
