Re: Testing signal to noise ratio
You would need a wide bandwidth audio voltmeter that goes to very low input levels, like an HP FL-400. You measure output at full power then measure the noise voltage with no signal and calculate the ratio as dB.
Realize though that 80dB SNR is 10000:1 so if the output is 10 volts the noise would be .001 volt.
