yes...i am very! happy with my Re201

After some time it is easy to program the different modes of operation.
It is recommended to change the NC-Accu (soldered on the CPU board) before programming all the modes in the 99 memories.

I programmed only 10 different modes for my needs.

The build in generator can produce a 1KHz "low harmonic" signal
with no more than 0,0002% THD.
In "normal Mode" 20-25000 Hz it is between 0,001 and 0.003 %

total, and 2nd up to 9th harmonic can be displayed (if wanted)

Available modes of operation:

true RMS,peak, quasi peak ,selective RMS
channel separation
TIM (3,2 KHz sqrw or triangle & 15 KHz sine with level 4:1)
Wow & flutter
programmable sweeps & multitones

some of these modes need the filter option 901-525
Installed options are displayes while startup

I really don't know. I'm probably going to buy this one. If I'll get bored with it you can have it...

My 201 was the only one at my local dealer.
At my last visit he offered me a Panasonic VP-7731A Audio Analyser that seem to have similar specs....It is a newer analyzer
(dated 1995..??) but it will not power up. The Monitor is ok, also the power supply....A repair is over my abilities....there are lots!! of DSP in it.
He asked 500.-

Hi, i'm new to this forum, i just typed Pnansonic VP-7731A and came through this post. I'm asking HARDI if he can give me the contact name or email address of the people who is selling the Panasonic analyzer in non working condition. I've my unit that is not working too and would like to repair it without spending a lot. Thank you for your kind reply.

Your best bet for test and measurement instrumentation is eBay.

Default Missing manual....

Hi Hardi

Just looking to find a user manual for a RE201, As you have one, could you help me with a copy????

I just got a RE201 on a auction in Belgium, but no manual....

Thanks in advance..

It has an own screen ans can be used as a stand alone unit.
I took a short view into the manual: up to 75 KHz bandwith ans 100 dB dynamic range! supports IM, TIM ans THD measurements.

Does anyone know this analyzer, and the model number ? is it a good deal for 400 $ (350 ) ??

I also took a short view on the analyzer, but it was very dark...i remember a black front panel and "banana plugs" ??

I'm pretty familiar with Radiometer. The company had two product lines; Audio and RF test equipment and medical equipment. Their Audio / RF equipment line was called RE Instruments, started in the late 1950's and lasted till the late 1990's. They started with individual test equipments then linked them together so that they could perform automated measurements; like on automotive radio production lines. The company was acquired by "someone else" early in the new century and discontinued support of the Audio / RF equipment. IN the USA, RE had an operation in Westlake Ohio but that is long gone and apparently all the parts/subassemblies/manuals ended up in a few large dumpsters. It appears that Panasonic and other companies came up with competing automated products that eventually put RE out of business. Too bad - I think that some of their generators and analyzers were the best ever made. I have a 104 and an SMG40a.

Some RE products:

AFM3 Modulation meter (6-100Mhz)
BKF10 Automatic Distortion Analyzer
MS27 AM/FM Signal Generator (300Khz-240Mhz)Tube
SMG series of Composite Stereo Generators

101, 104, 107, 110, 125 - Synthesized Signal Generators - typically 150khz to 30Mhz and 86 to 130 Mhz

201, 203, 256 - Dual Channel Audio Analyzers - primarily for automated testing

401, 402, Wow and Flutter Meter
403, Wow and Flutter Analyzer (1/3 octave display unit)

501 Programmable FM Stereo Generator
503 Programmable Stereo Audio Generator for TV
511 Programmable "ARI" Generator - some kind of European Traffic Control signals

901 Keyboard/Memory interface for 104/107
902 CRT module for 256
958 Product "interface"

Problems today - FORGET spare parts. Manuals are next to impossible to find. Would be great to start some kind of repository for whatever manuals could be found
