New TEK Scopes
 
Hey Guys,

Just for kicks I've been looking at the new DSO offerings from TEK. I've scecifically been looking at the TDS 2000 series. Does anyone have any expreience with these new scopes, and how would they compare to my trusty TEK 465B?

I'm only interested in audio related test/measurement.

Any input is appreciated.

Thanks,

Bryan

I've a tek 2024 with the maths package, which is very nice, but I still prefer the trusty Tek 2465A as a 'scope to work with. Only problem is no printing (though there are ways round that).

My nice 7904A with plugins will be on eBay UK soon - I'll be sad to see that go, but I need the space... (it's in the photo below).

Can't recommend them for audio stuff ...

Bryan 22nd November 2005 03:59 PM

That said, what would you recommend for audio testing?

If you really want a DSO, the Instek ones are great value for money (and they come with the FFT stuff etc.):

I and many others still prefer a good analogue 'scope, like the Tek 2465 series stuff mentioned above. They don't do the FFT thing, but they miss nothing...

Now there's a guy who takes his testing seriously!

If he only had room to put something up there ot test :D

There is an amp there - on the right (the bit of the bench that's not in view) - a Perreaux PMF 2150B that had blown up - got it for free and rebuilt it. There is a 200W dummy load next to it.

I know its not glass, but I'm only just getting going with tubes...

I'm being sarcastic. I'm really envious.

I'm just starting into tubes also.

That begs the question of a good starter scope for noobs. 20-40MHz scopes go for next to nothing on ebay... usually Tektronix 2205 and BK 1201/2120 types. Would the be a good recommendation for a starter? The resolution would suck, but for general testing it might be cool.
