    question about spl meters

    I was wondering why the Termlab is the best unit for db measuring.. Aren't they all supposed to be calibrated to be accurate? My brothers shop has an audiocontrol unit and i hit 145 on that with my current setup but I just don't understand what would make 1 meter so much better than the other. When you spend a couple of grand for something like that you should expect to be getting some quality ****......

    but the meter reads spl at a given frequency..so if i used a test tone shouldn't it be the same reading?
