WTB cool looking meter for GSSL clone
« on: July 13, 2018, 11:37:37 AM »
Want to buy a cool looking 1mA full-scale DC meter for the GSSL clone. Preferably one that is rectangular, and possibly backlit. Any suggestions or links to where I could get one? Thanks.

Hi

there are several cool meters out there, depends on what look you aim for (and where you live):

If you prefer rectangle meters, i just bought one i like very much. I think it's great with dark panels.
You can get it from franks online shop (http://shop.frontpanels.de/product_info.php?info=p39_classic-db-meter.html) or here: https://www.don-audio.com/VU-dB-Meter-D1010SL-Slim-Audio or from gustav: https://pcbgrinder.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=59_63&product_id=53

the classic black ssl clone meter is probably this one: http://shop.frontpanels.de/product_info.php?info=p82_db-meter--8027-b-.html

if you intend to use a 2U rack you could also think about this sifam style meter: http://diy-tubes.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=25_71&product_id=546

Don't forget the Expat Audio board that opens up the option to use a VU meter

Very cool! Thanks! The original is definitely a classic look, but that one from PCBgrider looks nice too. I'm located in the US.
