    Hey guys, just wanted to let you know:

    I've been out of luck finding an analog Radio Shack spl meter. I came across a different analog spl meter and got pricing for it.

    It's an Extech model #407706. Just call up your local Active store (they sell electronic parts). The price I was quoted was $97cdn plus taxes and there is a 2 week lead time.

    Do you guys think this is worth it considering that I can get the digital radio shack version for $65cdn? I know the digital can't perform the "hyperaccurate phase positioning" measurement or something like that....

    I would get the analog one. I had both at one time (Radio Shack models, that is). The analog one is better for < 1 dB adjustments.

    It's too bad there aren't any stores that rent this sort of stuff. Although I able to get my analog meter when they were on sale, I've only used it a couple of times and $65 or $97 seems quite a lot to pay for something that is, admittedly important, but so rarely used. [​IMG]

    larson davis sound level meters are rentable through the modal shop
    (www.modalshop.com).
    the ones they have are professional versions and the two/four week rental
    fee is the equivalent of 4 or more RS meters. but these meters are the real
    thing that we use for acoustic measurements. i do other things now, but
    used to do noise control. (i still use my old general radio SLM that's got
    to be twenty years old)
