    I've just had email Radio Shack for (Tandy) analogue SPL meter. They are selling it for is £25 for analogue version and £40 for didigtal. Carriage is £6 per parcel, not per item.

    Well, anyone of you wants one please email me, as the more I order, we'll all save more on shipping

    Email me if anyone is interested. I think I need to set a deadline this thread, let's make it 15/11/01.

    BTW, is there any difference between analogue and digital version?


    :)

    Obviously I am very disappointed in very few people interested in buying an SPL meter. I was kind of hoping to bulk buy. Here is the reply form rusk if I bulk buy :

    The analogue is 24.99 the digital is 39.99
    > > pounds.For a quanity of 10 or
    > > more the price would be 21.99 and 35.99
    > > respectively

    Well I guess we have to wait a litltle bit longer then, Looks like I have to extend the deadline.

    WELL ANYONE INTERESTED?????

    I have the Radio Shack Analogue SPL meter.
    There isn't really any need to pay the extra money for the digital meter.

    I'm still looking to find a cheap(used but working) Oscilloscope to connect to the signal output on the SPL meter.

    Works fine. Bought mine in the States.

    Let me know if, or when, you are going to purchase them.

    If need be, we can go half on p&p.

    I contacted radio shack about 2 months ago, and they would not ship to the uk.

    I already own an analogue meter, but if you are unable to find, the ten people you need e-mail me and I'll try to help make up the numbers.
    It is ridiculous that you cannot buy these in this country.
    I feel that if you’re into home cinema, as thousands are you MUST own one of these. Its right up there with quality cables and Scart leads.

    Does anyone have any pull with HCC maybe they could buy these in bulk and offer them go out with subscription deals rather that the headphones the occasionally offer.
    Also they could place a free advert in Classified.

    OK,

    These are the people who are interested

    1. Metric
    2. Philmate
    3. John R Baker
    4. Marcoeser
    5. JohnAd
    and me

    BTW, the cost per person I guess will be £21.99 + £0.60 + P&P to your place. My guess is about £25 for each person. It is only a pure guess as I don't know how big and heavy it is. Anyone who owns one, please tell me the dimension and weight??

    Also Big Pasty, could u get 4 more people. Those name mentioned above, please email me to confirm it please, I am thinking of ordering very soon

    Leave it a Little while longer, as I don’t actually know anyone who what’s one. I’m just offering to make up the numbers so that this thing happens.

    If required, Ill pay for the last four and can be paid back by any latecomers.
    But lets see who turns up.

    I am sorry I have to back out of the group order. I ordered one analogue meter last night from radio shack in the UK, because I would of had to pay the extra postage to get it from you. I wouldn't of saved that much, if anything.
    sorry, Marc.

    Ok but E-mail me if it looks like your going to be left with any on your hands I'll share the risk.

    Peter@alt2.com

    also as your taking the risk I think you should charge any latecomers £28 in order to make yours cheaper.

    To anyone else reading this

    Roll up roll up state of the Art audio Volumising testers only 5 I said 5 remaining we're not asking £100 and lets face it some of you have spent that on a scart lead. Not £90.....£80.....or even £50 if I said £40 you would be robing this good man NO NO NO to you SIR £28* plus P+P

    * the price quoted may not be that actual price.
