          Used to keep track on sound levels in church where operators are not professionals. It was easy for them to learn and use!

            Reasonably priced.
            Very easy to set up & use.
            I'm not quite sure why there needs to be different ranges of levels, because if the spl exceeds the range you have selected then it just shows as OL.
            I bought it because I wanted to become more aware of the spl I am exposed to.

              Comments about Galaxy Audio CM-130 CHECK MATE - SPL Meter:

              I wish the range went lower than 40dB, to check for ambient noise. But, this device is easy to use, handheld, with decent quality. It has a plastic body, so don't drop it, I presume. It's perfect for use at a fixed location. It's a bit larger than I thought it would be, but fits comfortably in my hand nonetheless.

                Won this as a gift from B&H and after using it I appreciate it very much. I use it to measure volume on the studio and also when I stack the PA. Great product

                    Good SPL meter at minimum cost, easy to use.
                    Missing backlight for display to be just right, but that version costs way too much more.

                      This is a great meter. We are using it in a church setting and it is a nice way to make sure the sound booth, in the back, is hearing the same thing people in the seats are hearing. Well worth the money.

                      I've used this as well the only other spl meters in this price range [can't name other retailers ;)], and this one gives more accurate readings across the board.

                      Things I liked:
                      -Easy to Read
                      -Pretty accurate for the price
                      -Sturdy! I'm a bit clumsy, and it still reads correctly, Despite a few drops so far!
                      -Battery life (about 50hrs): Unless I'm gonna use it 24/7, I doubt I'll run it down.

                      Things I disliked:
                      -Not huge, but less compact than similar offerings
                      -Less stylish (ie. more L33T)
                      -Sometimes the popscreen pops off

                      In the end, I'd buy this one again, and recommend it to anyone that needs an accurate and inexpensive option for sound check!
