Default Portable O-Scope?

Hi all -

Is this little LCD-based scope worthy to have on my bench, and is it really useful for audio trouble-shooting? I have my doubts about something this inexpensive and is true usefulness other then basic measurements. Yes?

It's nothing special. For the same money you could get a good Second Hand CRT scope with 200MHz bandwidth.

However, for Audio use, just to see where the signal has gone it should be OK.

Honest answer is it's just a toy. The "input" stages use TL084 and NE5532 opamps.

It's no good for serious work.

But it's worth a look.
