Default Neutrik RT-1M

Hi,

I just got myself a vintage Neutrik RT-1M multitone audio analyzer. Next thing I need is the manual and the PC software to run it...

Anybody can help me?

Hugo,

Thanks! I did some searches on the 'net but didn't find this nti site. So, now I need to find me an IEEE488 interface card...

Here's one in our area:

I wonder if the RT-1M will work with XP or 2000.
I recall reading something about Win '95 in the manual.

It will probably work with any OS that supports IEEE. The Win95 was for the RT_EVAL software, a graphical interface. That will most probably also run on XP, possibly in W95 compatibility mode.

There is also an RS232 input connector on the box (also on the pic in the manual) but no mention of it! I Wonder what that is for, maybe to upgrade the firmware?

The unit uses the same technology for multitone testing as developed by Audio Precision. I think the AP is a bit more sensitive, but it will be nice to have a unit that tests THD, Xtalk, Noise, IMD, Freq Response etc all in less than a second with up to 31 frequencies present. That should come pretty close to testing with music!

Not bad for a $ 200 eBay deal...

Default RS232

Yes, or for calibrating purposes. Let's hope you don't need to have that done:

It's only Norwegian Kroner, so divide by 10 or so...

After first asking 1500 euro (!) for the latest software, and after I pointed out that the user manual says 'free of charge', I got the original software (2001 version; my unit is from 1996) for free.

They also offered a USB-to-IEEE488 interface but I haven't dared to ask the price yet. A PCI IEEE488 board should be available at reasonable price, I think.

And oh yes, that RS232, that was never implemented in the hardware and firmware. It is on the unit and on the manual picture so I just wondered.

Factory cal is 345 euri.

Calibration is reasonable and ones again it's proven that reading a manual is mandatory.

A IEEE card is currently on Ebay for $50 dollar but it’s PCI.

I need PCI, I still have to built a 'measurement' PC for this thing and for the AP because my old laptop is soooo sloooow.

I found a card on eBay for 25 euro (not bought yet). I also found a cable voor $ 12. The 'official' Neutrik card costs 690 euro, but it is a standard National Instruments card. The 'official' IEEE488 cable is 106 euro.

I have the software but it doesn't run without the card...
