    A price increase of £3 in 3 days...!

    Is this the latest PAL version with the 3 colour filters, etc?

    Looks like they put the price down to 9.99 and then back up again, maybe after realising that people like me were using vouchers on this item.

    I initially placed an order for 10.99 (12.99 - 2.00) but then was surprised to find the price drop to 9.99 so soon after. As can be expected I quickly cancelled the higher value order and placed a new one at the lower price.

    The DVD was despatched yesterday.
    It is the PAL R2 version.

    Mine was ordered on the 31st. Despatched this Monday on the 5th and should be with me real soon.

    It's good when we can all grab a good deal. I'm looking to buy a SPL meter to aid system tuning and looking towards the digital one going for £35 at Maplin but not sure whether I should buy digital or analogue.

    I already have one of these SPL's. You probably read the other post about these. It's frequency range is 300Hz - 8 Khz. I had not noticed this and have had the meter for sometime. I would probably buy a analogue meter with a lower frequency response next time although I have been happy with my set up (including sub) after using it.

    Called them this morning and they told me they're waiting for stock from their supplier and I'm looking at delivery middle of next week.
    Not good service and definitely the last time I'll be using them.

    Thanks for the advice Zor. I was tempted by the digital one but will be going for the analogue due to the Hz limitation. The real appeal of the digital was that you can take more definite readings off the display, whereas with the analogue I suspect it will be more difficult, but considering that so many buy one it can't be too bad.

    By the way, my DVE disc from Splash arrived this morning but haven't had a chance to open the packet yet.

    DVE disc also just arrived. Exactly why I got the digi one. Very easy to use. Might put it on eBay.

    My turned up too. Not bad for £7.99 :)

    Brogan - I don't know why you're are moaning. The disk was very cheap and a lot of people have ordered it, hence they've run out of stock.

    At least they're restocking it and sending you one at the sale price as soon as possible.
