    I need to purchase a sound meter, i have seen a couple at Maplins, one is £25 and the other £55, they both do C and slow response. the £25 is accurate to within 2db and the £55 is accurate to within 1.5db.

    even 1.5db seems to be a fairly big variable to be out by, however i dont want to spend stupid money on a sound meter, i am willing to go to £55/£60.

    can anyone recommend a better sound meter with a lower variable

    Most people are happy with the analogue Radio Shack model which is also available for around £25 from Keene Electronics and Cornwall Electronics.

    As long as you can set a slow response with C weighting then they're all very similar until you start spending hundreds of pounds. :)
