    Lot of haters in here. If the tool works properly, makes my life easier, and has a decent price, I couldn't care less who's name is on the box. Sure an oscope may be able to do more, but did it ever cross your mind that the VAST majority of people will ONLY use it for this purpose and so this tool is perfect? Get over yourselves.

    I would argue that that type of attitude and behavior probably drives more people away. Got help us if we get more people into this that are attracted to and behave like that!

    What is it perfect for? Detecting clipping? Distortion? What kind of distortion? To what precision and at what frequency range? Apparently Mr. Knows All likes to shout down and insult the people asking more specifics about how it works and what it's supposed to do.

    Really about the only thing I could see it useful for is for wanna-be rich kid/eliteist/fan boys to show off that they know more and are better than anyone else.

    Spending a lot of money and being right all the time on the internet is no substitute for Pen!s size.... get a **** pump and grow the **** up.

    How did you like the response he gave when the diy member asked what they used to make sure their folding table wasn't soaked in static electricity?
    He wasn't all that bead in 2005-2006, he was still a cocky douche but bearable. I got in an hour long argument once because I said HO problems was louder then the hoopty.

    your amps should be less than .1% for that matter. most high end amps are well under .1%

    IMO marketing hype only. I'd defy anyone to show me double blind test that shows anyone hearing 1% distortion.

    OK, so what is the point? What precisely does it detect? Inaudible distortion? The pic a few pages ago shows a 40 Khz wave with a bit of a notch on it. Is this somehting that gaining down some piece of equipment will help? After you set your gains to 0db 40hz sine wave, what happens at every other frequency and other record levels?
