No worries mate :)
Cool device. Not worth the price for me, I'm not.continually changing my set up nor compete. If I could get it for <$50 I'd consider it.
the only reason i wouldn't buy it is it doesn't look that accurate, in the picture he has it next to an o-scope thats not clipping yet the light is on? thats probly safer but for 140 bucks the thing better be spot on
guys twisted proved it worked lol. its not the best godly device ever lol its 149 bucks or whatever. it is just a very simple way to set your gains. if you dont like it dont buy it, but dont not buy it just because meade created it...
How much does a GOOD O-scope cost is the question..lol
Also since i'm no technical wizard.... This is what TonyD'Amore said....
I know it's hard to grasp the concept of distortion if there is no clipping. I will try to get some good pictures from my bench, showing the SMD DD-1 in action. For now, check out this picture of a distorted sine wave vs. a clean sine wave. Your little hand-held scope is not going to tell you about this, it may show it on the screen but unless you have robot eyes you aren't going to know what you are looking at. Hell, you have to look closely at those little LCD displays even to see clipping!
In order for the smd meter to detect that, it would need to be able to compare the source signal with the output signal. It doesn't have that capability before anyone chimes in and states that this thing is measuring distortion and not just clipping.
Ummm looks like a clipped signal to me. If this tests "distortion" what's its point of reference?
Some ppl will buy it just because it sais SMD on it, some people would never buy it for the same reason.
Good **** twisted!
