        Comments about American Audio dB-Display Rack Mount Level Meter:

        I use it as a better VU/Wattage limiter on threesome of high end 2U 4,000W Amps. Surprisingly the Amps only provide 3 VU lights (1. on, 2. some music playing, 3. buy new tweeters). For the price, it is great value to get more resolution before you damage speakers. Very low depth so it doesn't interfere with Fans. Improvements would be to power it via USB which most racks have supplies for now, and make a model with vacuum florescent, or LCD, or pack in rectangular LEDs to get even more resolution and faster response on the VU scale.

        Comments about American Audio dB-Display Rack Mount Level Meter:

        I use this product to make sure I have full stereo audio coming out of my mixer the entire time I'm using it. I love how it is easy to use and has the option to toggle between BAR and DOT graph modes. The only problem I have with it is that it is made of plastic especially when moving it between gigs.

            Quality product (well made in China!)and will be using for final mix at a mixer console. Shame it did not have peak-hold as an option - very useful when there is a long display like this one.

            Comments about American Audio dB-Display Rack Mount Level Meter:

            I use this in my processor rack, alongside my DJ rack. Out of the box, it worked perfectly. I run straight to it using a stereo RCA cable directly out of my Rec Out on my Mackie FX8 mixer. I don't use it to obtain accurate dB levels, but it is cool to look at! It also impresses those less knowledgeable, and it does give you decent levels when calibrated correctly!

            Drawback: faceplate is made of plastic instead of metal. I'd pay extra if it were made of metal. Oh, and it can't be used between your main outs and your amp/s.

              Comments about American Audio dB-Display Rack Mount Level Meter:

              Unit works fine. I think it would look better if was made of metal instead of plastic. It kind of clashes with your other metal pro audio components. I did notice that when using in bar mode the LED's dim a bit as noted on another review but that doesn't bother me because I use it in dot mode anyway.

                I use this unit to give me a more accurate level display than the meters on my Copywriter CD recorder. So far I am happy with the unit. The trick is to calibrate the unit so you can avoid clipping. I found that the meter is slightly slower than the meters on the copywriter. So calibrate accordingly!
