Acquire Audio Precision more affordably with Flex

'Software-only' T&M analyser debuts from AP

Audio Precision's Flex test and measurement system is based on the company's test software — users do not have to buy a hardware analyser, but must own an ASIO interface with the right number of channels for the type of testing they wish to carry out.Audio Precision's Flex test and measurement system is based on the company's test software — users do not have to buy a hardware analyser, but must own an ASIO interface with the right number of channels for the type of testing they wish to carry out.

As long-term SOS readers will know, since 2010 Technical Editor Hugh Robjohns has been making regular use of an industry-standard Audio Precision (AP) audio analyser to perform spec tests and measurements during reviews. Hugh‘s APx515 is a pretty formidable piece of industrial test and measurement (T&M) kit, with a price tag to match — but anyone who would like a cheaper way to test audio gear themselves and already has an ASIO-capable audio interface now has a more affordable way to buy into the AP world. APx Flex (above) is a software‑only test solution that uses an existing interface for test signal I/O. The only hardware required is a dongle, the APx500 Flex Key, which is supplied with the software and connects via any spare USB 2.0 socket. APx500 Flex systems start at £2834.40$3000 for two-channel test software, and systems with a higher channel count for simultaneous testing of multi-channel kit are also available — contact AP UK for further pricing details.
