I wonder if it is an actual DSP or if it just uses a Silicon Labs chip.

Just ordered one of these -- FYI, you are likely to get a security warning if using VISA -- so you have to confirm the sale is OK, using the VISA email, then re-process the order for the SDR...

Hehe. I know you're joking, but I do suspect it's not a real DSP. Probably the Si4735. Which is what all those cheap clone Chinese receivers use.
