There's a slow/fast response button on the digital too.

The digital has slow-fast setting. It is really steady when doing the mains, but it jumps a bit for the sub (but not so much that you can't get a good reading).

*Notice I said 'good' reading, which is different from 'accurate'.

Hi,

Oh, OK. Well, that makes the comparison even closer and the decision harder between the digital and analog meters. Of course, you could get both and do comparisons of accuracy, returning whichever meter came second.

Hey, another fun vacation project!

Cheers,

Does the analog have an output like the digital one does? I seem to remember it not having one, if not the digital can be used as a mic for REW(Room EQ Wizard) to plot room response etc.

yep, the analog one has an output, that is how I graphed with REW.

I see an output on my analog. I've never used it.

How do you hook up that output to what?

You can use that to hook up to allow the SPL meter to act as a mic by hooking it up to a soundcard's input and then use REW or similar to graph responses.
