    Hi!
    I need tto buy a SPL meter to set up my home cinema properly.
    I was in London last week-end and even after spending half a day running from hi-fi shops, to electronic shops, I came back empty handed. One shop had a digital SPL meter selling for £150, but it's waaaaayyyyyy too much!

    Does anyone have recommendation for a specific model and/or a shop where i could order online? (I live in Switzerland).

    Thanks,

    Johann

    Places like:
    www.maplin.co.uk
    www.cpc.co.uk

    Stock some more advanced SPL meters that are fairly accurate across the frequency range and sensitive down to low volume but there is a price premium.

    Both of these places sell the standard Radio Shack SPL meter:
    www.keene.co.uk
    www.cornwallelectronics.co.uk

    Which is what most members use to set there systems up, I've no idea about international ordering for those places I'm afraid though. :)
