    Small. Accurate. Useful. Cheap. Did I say small? Front-panel real estate is hard to come by - with these units you can add oh-so-hip analog metering to almost any device and - as others have noted - they are easy to customize with your own scale and graphics. The low price means I'll be emboldened to try customizing them, adding a "peak hold"... Read more
