Surround Sound Meters

The Coleman Audio SMP5.1 is a life-saver in your studio surround setup. Without VU meters you're flying blind. Light meters can be "off" as much as 1dB per segment, which limits their usefulness in critical applications. Standard equipment in recording and broadcast, the VU meter is an indispensable reference tool no audio professional should be without. The SMP5.1 is a stand-alone package with six VU meters, -10/+4dB-switchable operating levels, input level trims, and an internal power supply. You need pro metering - outfit your rig with the Coleman Audio SMP5.1.

Coleman Audio SMP5.1 Features at a Glance:
  • Light meters don't cut it

Light meters don't cut it

The Coleman Audio SMP5.1 is fitted with six honest-to-goodness VU meters - the gold standard for professional surround metering. Light meters are segmented, and may be "off" by as much as adB per segment, which can throw off the balance of your mix buses - or worse. Face it: you need proper VU meters.

Two Switchable Operating Levels

The Coleman Audio SMP5.1 features a button on the front panel that switches operation between professional +4 level and -10 consumer level. You can switch back and forth immediately according to the destination spec requirements of your projects. Very handy.

Internal Power Supply

The Coleman Audio SMP5.1 features an internal power supply. With no wall wart to annoy you, you get more freedom of placement, and a bonus: Coleman will set up the power supply for your country of choice - at no additional cost. Just let your Sweetwater Sales Engineer know where you'll be using your new SMP5.1.
