    These meters used to be available from the many Tandy shops and were marked 'Realistic'. An analogue version was also available and is still preferred by some.

    Be aware that the meter does not read 'flat' as supplied.

    The meter has a sharp bass roll off and slightly 'untidy' treble response.

    Here is a link to a list of of corrections:

    (scroll down slightly)

    Some ideas for altering both types of meter here:

    Unless you are skilled at soldering I would print out the correction figures then simply adust your meter readings on paper.

    Good luck
