Audio and acoustic analyzer
NTI Audio (New Technologies in Audio)
XL2: NTi Audio AG presents its new handheld flagship: the XL2 Audio and Acoustic Analyzer. The XL2 analyzer forms the unique combination of a state-of-the-art sound level meter, a comprehensive acoustical analyzer as well as a powerful audio analyzer. The XL2 provides together with the measurement microphones M4260 (Class 2) or M2210 (Class 1 frequency response) a precise sound level meter for monitoring of live sound events and environmental noise. The instrument generates the 48V phantom power supply for the microphones and reads the included electronic data sheet of the M4260 and M2210 automatically. This promotes faster setup and ensures accurate measurements. Additionally the XL2 logs the calibration data and microphone serial number at each measurement.
