    Galaxy cm-130

    This spl meter was what the doctor ordered, it helped me calibrate my home theater system precisely. It was very easy to use, and it brought sounds out of my system that i thought i would never hear, they were very precise crisp sounds. If you have a home theater system that needs calibrating, this little gem will do the trick.

    Great SPL meter

    I use this to calibrate speaker volume to ensure that it is even. I even measure the strength of different test tones, not only in my studio but from my home theater surround sound system. I think it's a great little tool for, especially the the price.

    Does the Job!!

    It does what it is suppose to do. Has a good amount of features to cycle through and get accurate dB readings. If you need to know exactly the level of sound in your environment. The Galaxy CM-130 is exactly what you need for a great price!!

    affordable SPL

    Finally an SPL meter that you can pack in your gear box for sound level checks that can be replaced without too many tears if it gets left behind or broken.

    cm-130 Galaxy

    This unit is very easy to use. Light weight and simple. Great for volunteers to use. Would recommend this item to a friend.

    Con: Slightly large size.

    Decent Meter

    I have one of these for the band I run FOH for -- and our church got two for both campuses. They work pretty well, are accurate, and does the job. The one thing I wish it had is an RMS hold. It has slow and max which I use to rough out an overall average -- fast peaks are cake -- but it has no RMS hold.

    Must Have for Live Sound!

    When running live sound, monitoring the sound pressure level (SPL) is critical—and when it comes to cost effective SPL monitoring, the CM-130 delivers.

    I awarded this device 4/5 stars due to the lack of illumination; however, it's not a big deal since you can use a pen light or cell phone to illuminate it in low light environments.

    My Galaxy CM-139 is a great asset for sound at my church. It showed me the dead spots in the sanctuary and was very helpful with a good balance in the listening areas.

    Not as Robust as I expected

    Meter works fine, just not as robust as I expected.

    Galaxy CM-130 simple, affordable

    I have just started using my CM-130, it does the job. Can't beat the features for the price, wish the body of the unit felt more durable and comfortable during use. Oh well, I'd purchase another.

    Prefer Galaxy CM-140 over CM-130

    The CM-130 is good for instantaneous levels OR maximum level but has no memory to hold the values when switching between them. The CM-140 can read MIN, MAX, or CURRENT while holding the others in memory. Of course, neither device keeps an ongoing record of CURRENT values (see CM-160 for that). Also, although they cover the same over-all range, the CM-140 is split up into three ranges, while the CM-130 has four ranges, one of which demarcs on 90 dB, which is of course an area of interest (80-100). The CM-140 also has an analog output which I hope to use someday.
