    Radio Shack wants $90 for a digital SPL meter (i'm Canadian) and I cannot justify this. What types of stores carry this thing? Could I find this at a large store like home depot or what? I don't even need digital...as long as it's easy to read and is accurate. BTW, my local radio shacks don't even carry it! I would have to order online but would much rather purchase at a store.
    thanks

    You're not going to be able to find anything cheaper. The reason why it's $90 now at Radio Shack, is because they discontinued the analog version of the meter. So unless you want to call all the Shacks around here in the hopes to find an analog one, the one they have now is your only choice.
    I hear there are other meters availalble usualy reserved for professionals, and these will cost much much more then $90.

    My local "Sears Hardware" has SPL meters in their electrcal supplies isle for about $35. Try your local hardware or tool store.

    Kami,
    For a better price, you probably will have to wait for a sale at RS. $90 is too pricey. I thought that they were around in the $60 range, regular price.
