    I am a newbie to the HT tuning arena and went to RAdio Shack over the weekend to buy my first SPL Meter.

    Lo and behold, it's on sale. It's only $29.95 right now.

    Just a FYI.

    Which model, the digital or the analog? I have seen the digital on sale regularly, but not the preferred analog.

    I just wanted to drop in and say that I also picked one up for $29.95 here in Rochester, NY. So it seems like this is a national sale, although their website doesn't list it.
    So if anyone has been putting off getting one, now seems like the time to do it [​IMG]

    FYI, Radio Shack in South Pasadena, CA had the sale posted as from 2/28 to 3/31. Most sales people don't even know it's on sale but it should ring up as being on sale.

    They're not carrying too many in stock so you might want to call ahead.

    Just picked mine up for $29.99 at Rat Shack here in Fort Lauderdale. I got the last boxed one [​IMG].
    All I have to say is... WOW! What a HUGE difference it makes to have a properly calibrated system! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Anyone have the part number? My local Shackii tend to believe that an item doens't exist if they can't immediately remember where it is.

    Thanks,

    Thanks for the info everyone! The part # from the previous post is "the magic number", and the sale is still on (as of 14 March). Picked mine up in Manassas, VA today for $29.99.

    This may be the wrong area for this post, and if so, could a mod please move / delete it, but this seemed like the perfect oppertunity.

    If anybody with a good trader feedback could possibly pick me up a $29.99 analog SPL meter and ship it to Canada, I would be forever grateful, since we only have digital's anymore,which retail for $89.99 Canadian. Obviously, there would be a few bucks in it for you for your trouble, name a price and see if I can afford it. :b
