          Comments about American Audio DB-DISPLAY Rackmount LED Decibel Meter:

          I am disappointed. It works but it is not calibrated at all. The trimmer pots shoould be 10 turn pots for finer adjustments. The provided single turn pots are just useless, not enough adjustment. The box is well built otherwise, the balance inputs a bonus.

          Not a dB Meter

          About Me Experienced

          Pros

          • Cheap
          • Lightweight

          Cons

          • Limited Functions
          • Unreliable
          • Very Inaccurate

          Best Uses

          • Light Show

          Comments about American Audio DB-DISPLAY Rackmount LED Decibel Meter:

          I bought this product to monitor line level feeding into the crossover of my Bi-Amp'd system. It does put on a nice light show. But, it is not even remotely accurate at measuring level. A -6dB input change will display -48dB ; -11 dB input change will drop the
          display below -57 dB.
          (Determined using a Agilent waveform generator and a Tektronix oscilloscope)

          This is not a manufacturing defect, it is designed this way.
          (I am an experienced BSEE, an audio designer, and I took mine apart to look)

          This box will give you blinky lights. It will not give you even a ball-park reading of level.

          Buyer Beware

            Comments about American Audio DB-DISPLAY Rackmount LED Decibel Meter:

            I looked at all of the online reviews of other similar LED meters. Even though it is pricier than other models, I was willing to pay more because this new American Audio model seems to have just about everything I was looking for:

            - Big, bright LED's
            - Metal case
            - Clean, uncluttered front panel
            - Light weight (only 1.75lbs)
            - Seems like a quality product
