Studio Electronics rack mount dual VU meter panel, with +4 balanced XLR inputs.

We built and sold several dozen of these custom VU meter panels a few years ago and after many requests, have built another run of them. These are a very practical studio accessory, especially for work station, computer based, and post production systems.

Built from repurposed VU meters and Sony/MCI PC boards, this is a 3.5" high (2 RU) panel with two accurate, high quality Triplett VU meters (not illuminated) and dual buffer electronics. Trimpots on each buffer board provide level adjustment -- the unit is designed for +4, but there's about 16 db of range on the trimmers, to accommodate different levels. The VU meters are surface mounted and the plastic covers protrude about 3/8" fromthe front of the panel.

The panel has a six foot cable with two female XLR’s for the inputs. The panel is balanced high impedance in, and will have no impact on the sound quality or specs of your system.

Please note: upon request we can include two XLR Y-adapters, each with 1 female XLR and 2 males, to provide a "through" connection with parallel outputs for the meter panel. The additional cost for two adapters is $60. If you want the adapters let us know, and we can add the cost to your ebay invoice or invoice you separately.

Also, upon request, we can install other types of connectors instead of XLR, such as RCA, 1/4" balanced or unbalanced, etc. There's no extra charge for this option, but please let us know at the time of purchase.

The Triplett VU meters are extremely rugged and reliable and feature accurate, familiar ballistics. If you're running a digital setup with peak indicators but no mechanical VU's, adding our meter panel will help you to judge the subjective loudness of your mixes. In addition, the high resolution of analog VU meters can be very handy for accurately calibrating input and output levels, and for analog metering of digital plug-ins.

The panel is rugged 3/16" aluminum, grained and anodized black (not just painted). The unit is powered by a small 100-240 volt power adapter that will work with any wall voltage. However please note that the power adapter has a US style plug and for other regions you will need to provide the correct socket adapter. This is a sharp looking unit, and a very practical addition for the home or project studio. A one page user guide is included.
