MiniSonic MS20 Specifications
215 x 160 x 33 mm. Weight 600g.
128 x 64 pixel OLED graphic display with 180° viewing angle. Brightness and power-off time configuration options are provided.
Dual low-noise microphone inputs (two 3.5mm mini-jacks) with 5V power, calibrated to UniSon standard (-30dBu=100dBSPL). Precision calibrated miniature measuring microphones (1/4") available at extra cost – see Measurement Microphones.
Input and output sockets carry power (6 to 9V 1A max).
3.5mm stereo mini-jack for headphones 32Ω or greater. Automatic muting of internal speaker for stereo listening.
Slot-in Sony NP500/530/560 style rechargeable lithium-ion battery included (15hrs use) or external 12V (11-14V) DC from 500mA mains adapter
via 2.1mm power jack. Battery charges internally in 15hrs (half charged in 4hrs) with power connected.
Built-in 65mm speaker and volume control for listening – monitors L-chan on all measurements.
Manual, UniSon to XLR and UniSon to phono input and output adapter leads (1m), mains lead, RS232 lead, 12V 1A mains PSU, lithium-ion battery and Lin4Win (running under all versions of Windows) support software on CD.
UniSon to 3.5mm mini-jack leads, MM1/2/3 calibrated microphone, test CD and test tape available to order.
Two-channel 44kΩ balanced or 22kΩ unbalanced on UniSon D-type
socket (with 6-9v 'PowerBus' for microphone preamps etc).
Two-channel simultaneous level measurement: -50dBu to +19dBu in 10dB
ranges (autoranging/manual). Accuracy ±0.05dB -20dBu to +19dBu. Quasipeak
reading as standard with fast option. Frequency readout to over 50kHz
with high precision (±1Hz resolution). ±180° 20Hz – 20kHz phase readout
with ±2° resolution and accuracy (up to 40kHz with reduced accuracy).
Press and hold to normalise to any level in the range +19dB to -50dB.
Toggle normalised or absolute.
Bright, two-channel simultaneous display with PPM dynamics to IEC268
type II (BBC) standard. This mode also allows for -60 to +30dB precision
variable gain on the loop-through output, with very low noise (-85dB
weighted) and distortion (-90dBu) for studio use.
ITU-R 468 weighting and quasi-peak dynamics. Residual input noise
Instantly normalises and then nulls the fundamental and measures the
residue on a 1kHz tone weighted according to IEC268 (ITU-R 468 curve and
quasi-peak detector). Fully autoranging display relative to normalised level.
Typical null depth -76dBu.
Measures weighted crosstalk, automatically muting the channel selected,
while driving the other at the selected frequency and level.
Receives over 30 Lindos test segments. Displays the results of all sequence
segments on the OLED screen with up-down cursor on all graphs. Stores
four complete sets of results for later transferring to a PC.
Two-channel (10Ω source impedance) balanced centre-grounded
UniSon on 9-pin D-type plug. Unbalanced with phono or mini-jack
4Hz to 40kHz sine in third and twelfth-octave steps, 1kHz 5kHz 10kHz
±0.05% of specified synthesised frequency.
±0.02dB typical from 20Hz to 20kHz, -0.05dB at 31kHz, -0.6dB at
16Hz and 40kHz.
-90dBu to +19dBu in 0.5dB steps, balanced, centre-grounded; -96dBu
to +13dBu single-ended. Accuracy of ±0.02dB is typical at 0dB;
±0.05dB is typical at -60dBu and +19dBu.
-76dB distortion residue (weighted) (-86dB/0.005% THD) at 1kHz
(22Hz-22kHz bandwidth) typical. Minimum load 600Ω (-72dB THD).
Mute, restore, and channel selection. Auto-mute on selecting noise
measurement. Auto-signal source selection on crosstalk and
distortion. Residual noise when muted: -86dBu weighted.
19 pre-defined sequences and over 30 selectable test segments for
user assembly including sweeps 20-20k and 40-40k, noise, crosstalk,
distortion residue, noise vs time plot, headroom plot and phase plot.
Special segments for repetitive GLITS and channel ident tests. Also
PPM and ITU-R 468 inverse-weighted tone-burst tests.
4 level and 4 frequency presets (user programmable).
