Hi!

I would like to know how to measure a THD and power of an amplifier with just a PC and voltmeter and some dummy loads!!

Thanks for your replies!

Ahoj,

For THD you need a spectrum analyser software and good quality sound card, and low distortion sine wave generator.

Power is easy, ohms law.
