    Hi,

    I have been looking around trying to get hold of a Sound Meter for system tweaking but have thus far been unsuccessful. The only ones I have seen are either prohibitively expensive or else only have a very narrow range of frequencies that they are able to measure.
    Any recommendations ?

    Regards.

    Mr Grumpy

    Well they do a digital one and also an analogue, though the specs are a bit vague.
    A good starting point though.

    Many thanks :thumbsup:
