Introducing AverLAB

AverLAB, the most affordable and convenient full-featured high-performance audio analyzer ever.

AverLAB is a bench-friendly analyzer that makes audio testing affordable. With fanless, silent operation and cigar-box size, it fits perfectly on even the most crowded benches. Run tests and adjust parameters using front panel controls, without having to clutter your bench with a keyboard and mouse. And AverLAB’s performance and features help you get your day-to-day work done without compromise.

Unlike other portable analyzers, AverLAB is expandable. Very expandable. The AverLink port lets you add over 100 AverLine rack test modules of analog, digital and general purpose I/O. The built-in I2S interface offers I2C, SPI, and parallel control lines for controlling your digital audio circuits or other outboard gear.

AverLAB works where you do. The under 6 pound unit fits neatly into most standard 15″ laptop bags. And, with no USB tether dictating where to work, you are free to access AverLAB from your workbench, desk, during a meeting, even from home.

The best feature of all? AverLAB is only $3000 US, including future updates and new features.
AverLAB is available now from Amazon and directly from Avermetrics.
