I have read in quite a few places that the best Fluke for Electronics/Amplifiers is the 87V.
But that goes for $405.
The 115/117 are good meters, but only <1% AC accuracy below 500Hz.
I'd go for this new $300 Fluke 87V that just turned up, it's much better.

You're right to be wary of used meters, if you want accuracy.
Get a Brymen BM257s instead of the 117. The 117 is an electrician's meter. It does not have low current range. Its display is darkish. Way overpriced also. The 87V is a crossover electrician/electronics guy meter. A golden standard for all round accuracy responsiveness ergonomics ruggedness and longevity but big and expensive. I got one new for $200 by pure luck in 2013 and I enjoy it but all Fluke are overpriced kit unless you really use them and abuse them everyday. Still the 87V is much better value than the 117 IMHO. The cheap 17B that I also had and gave it to a friend recently was explicitly made in China and the board material was alike but the 87V says USA. Maybe they just put it together and calibrate it in USA from prefab parts, maybe not, I don't know.Why is it if I go on Amazon and search for "Fluke 87V" I only see the $404 ones and not the one you linked to? And does anyone know if the 87V's are American made or are ALL Flukes made in China now?
If it shows up and is what it says it is then I will be happy beyond belief and will thank you Rayma for showing me such a great deal...
What do people think about the Fluke 117 True RMS MultiMeter? Is this a good MM for using to test amps and hifi stereo's? Or is the 115 plenty fine?
