    I just picked up Avia last night and went to radio shack to pick up a sound meter. They only had a digital one and didn't even list an analog one. I did a search here and found that apparently Radioshack Canada has discontinued them. Does anyone happen to know where I could get an analog one either online or in the Vancouver area?, I really don't want to spend another $100 to set up my system.
    Thanks.

    Mike, I suggest taking a ride down to the states and visit a Radio Shack down there. Heck, I'll bet there's an RS in Blaine or even Point Roberts.

    I got one from Ebay. I'd suggest looking there.

    I got mine from Radio Shack in Winnipeg about a couple of months ago. They only had the digital. It was $90 regular, but I got it for $45 on a half off sale. I jumped at it for that price because $90 was too much. Maybe it will come on sale. Check with your local Radio Shack. Hopefully you will get lucky.

    I meant to bid on one from ebay and missed it. Oh well I'm sure one will crop up again, how has the Digital one been for the theater setup? From what I've read they're not as good?

    RS told me they were discontinuing them to, so I went digital. This was close to a year ago.
