Taiwan Nissei Sokki - http://www.nissei.com.tw/e/VU.htm - e.g. the TN-73-HS type VU-meter

Minimum order quantity 100pcs. last time we got some.

How was the quality? Reasonable enough? I actually like quite a few of their meters, now i just wish they had some small meters that would fit in a 1u rack and work nicely with a gssl ;)

I guess 1 seller cant have everything!  :P

Yep, 32$ for 1. Going to order 1 to check it out, altho, I am having a hard time finding some of their smaller meters for sale individually to use with a 1u case. Well.....besides the ermmm..... "Behringer' looking ones.  :o

I used two in my D-AOC, work very well. It won't fit into a 1U rack though that's for sure.

For 1U meters have a look at what Hairball has to offer..

Quality's good enough for API.  Last I looked, the 2500 and 525 both use Nissei meters.
