    Are there benifis/advantages between the RS digital meter 33-2055 and the analog 33-4050 besides price? The analog requires a conversion table, is the same true for the Digital one as well?

    I'd go for the analog meter. For one, it's cheaper. And two, It will give you more visual feedback than the digital meter will. I can exactly remember but I think the digital meter rounds off to the nearest 1/2db, i.e. 75, 75.5, 76, 76.5, etc. Whereas the needle can show you everything between each db mark.

    Will this make a big difference when calibrating a sub??? Probably not, but I do like being able to see more info with the analog meter.
