There are no hardware IF filters in the DV10, it should be all done in DSP.

The #2 crackling tone concerns me a bit. It's usually a telltale sign of a bad IF filter. It could be broken or perhaps a bad design with a lot of ripple. If you can select another IF filter it would probably not have a crackling tone when the frequency are a few KHz off, or else it might be a bad design or too low quality of the IF filters.
