Recommendation on Distortion Analyzer
I am in the market for a distortion analyzer. I will probably buy one off of ebay but I wanted to get some recommendation on what to look for. I have actually never used one before but I want to spend maybe a couple of hundred dollars to play around with one and test my amplifiers. In general, is calibration an issue when buying? I am looking at the HP 331 or 334. Does anyone have experience with this one?

Buy an HP339 if you can afford it. Low distortion oscillator source and distortion analyzer. I paid 300 on ebay. Someone was selling one here for 150.00. I great deal. IMHO. Calibration? Yes, it would be nice to do but a 339 will measure down to .01% easily without it. The issue is usually residual noise.
The 331/334 is nice but what will you use for an LD oscillator??

The issue is usually residual noise.
Oh yes, big pain for phono stages.

Have fun, Hannes
