Default mini scope

I'm looking to get a scope for audio. I sold my old 20mhz scope a while ago, that I hardly used.

I found this on ebay...

Mini SD USB Chargeable Digital ARM Oscilloscope DS0201 V1.5 to Test Circuit | eBay

It looks more than capable...

Well it's intresting that they actually post the schematic on their e-bay page. I tried to post it here but the resolution is not usefull. Also the probe looks like the type used for higher end insturments. Ah - Well the price is low, so all in all I'm skeptical. Let's say that you just want to be able to look at waveforms for troubleshooting. It should be good enough for that.,, but you get what you pay for. There have been many discussions on the forum about scope alternatives. Have you dug around? Good Luck, and if you do buy it, let us know what you find.

It has only one channel (although there is a more expensive $180 version which two probes)...

It does store waveforms to sd memory.

Looks like a rebuilt/repurposed music player. That's a pretty neat idea.

Not poor at all...very well spoken. WOW...I think I might actually look into getting this. Do you think that it could handle most of what we here at DIY audio build? For testing?

in my humble opinon yes... of course there r better options out there but then again....do you really need this options?? I dont.
btw build quality is exelent and software is easy to uppgrade as a bonus.
