    hp339

    Hello,

    I think I used HP339 in 1982. I think it has the source oscillator as well as the notch filter/voltmeter. is that correct? I think the HP lab equipment is very nice to use and well built. But I think you will also need a spectrum analyzer to help understand the distortion components for general lab use.

    I think for general use you should instead save for a spectrum analyzer. But if you are building a production test setup the distortion analyzer would give you a pass/fail answer more quickly.

    How do you plan to use the HP339?

    Best Regards,
    Tom

    I plan to use it for amp. building projects.

    When experimenting mostly in amplifier designing, but also when building, testing and servicing amps it would be beneficial to use a "simple" THD dist. analyzer. The old HP 339A could be an analyzer/meter for this purpose that will not ruin my economy if buying one. Of course, a spectrum analyzer would be more versatile but to a much higher costs due to used equipment of this type are still very expensive. And I have an oscilloscope to look at when using the HP 339A meter.

    I appreciate any inputs regarding the meter, what ever it is, thanks in advance.
