I am not able to resist. I freely admit that vanity got the best of me. I have been using a Panasonic VP7722 for the last 15 years, which is an excellent instrument. BUT, R&S just brought to market a contraption called UPV. Fully balanced, dual channel, analog and digital domain. Runs under Windows XP Embedded. Programmability guys. FFT noise floor -140dB. Dynamic range 170dB. The best there is in Norway right now.

It comes with some software to measure THD and costs $149.

I am not sure if there is an API that you can use for your applications (what I would prefer).

I hope this helps.
The evaluation kit, fwiw, does not come with an interface -- this you have to purchase separately. the 5-6K Interface Board.

i just opened on another section of this forum a similar post...and then.... i found this thread

Anyways, i downloaded the brochure of the analyzer mentiond on the post above.


it looks very interesting....is it the same of what you are talking about on your post?
If so, how much it costs? do you have an evaluate version dr you bought the complete interface?

Including local tax, and the options that I bought, the price is a little over $40K.

Interesting new toy, did you consider the AP range, too ?

Can you do some tests, like this ( taken from the AP2700 manual, copyright Audio Precision ) ?

As fun as they are, big budget analyzers are off-topic in a
DIY forum.

Centrally, besides non-electrical hand tools, the most essential
elements are (in essential order of starting out):

Multimeter - RADIO SHACK FOR $39 (think about a couple of these)

Soldering Iron - RADIO SHACK FOR $19


Scope - ANYTHING DECENT you can get used.
1 MHz, 5 mV, dual channel, a trigger that works.

Everything else can be built with these.
