    Pulse car audio explains to you that it is simply measuring whether or not the signal is clipped in your link. You disproved your own point.

    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.

    Re: SMD Distortion Detector Testing and Review!

    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

    That's what I was originally meaning. It shows the signal isn't being clipped but there's distortion it picked up. It doesn't pick up clipping it picks up distortion. However that works. Bubba maybe you can elaborate more

    Re: SMD Distortion Detector Testing and Review!

    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!

    Re: SMD Distortion Detector Testing and Review!

    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.

    Re: SMD Distortion Detector Testing and Review!

    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.
