Still holding out for Radioshack.co.uk or Cornwall Electronics to supply an analogue SPL Meter. Anybody know where I can get one at the moment?

Don't believe their technical description blurb though. It's NOT 5 frequency ranges but 7 SPL ranges in dB's. 60, 70, 80, 90, 100 & 110 & 120dB. :lesson:

Generally the analogue meter is considered superior to the digital model. It is more sensitive to small changes in SPL (dBs).

Not having seen a digital meter in the flesh I cannot say if there are any other differences.

What happened to Tandy? Have they closed down?

They pulled out of the UK a few years ago and started flogging mobile phones here instead

Can't you just see the frequency response graph:

10-20kHz (+/- 3 red diodes) :eek:

There is talk on the US AV fora of of an updated RS type analogue meter. :clap:

Have you tried www.nicksheppard-electronics.co.uk?

I bought my digital SPL (£40) from them, but that was about a year ago, so I don't know whether they still sell the meters.


BTW Nimby, that's a pretty impressive sub you've got there , just how tall is it? And I though Isobariks were substantial!

cash converters often stock these devices. No difference between analogue and digital.
