ok, so for my axo projects i want a better oscilloscope...
ive got a DSO138, which was ok for getting me started, but i want something a little more accurate/steady
requirements... small buget, as its a hobby - its for audio work, so doesnt need to be super fast (i reckon 50mhz is more than i need!) , ideally it would have a signal generator
Id like a signal generator so i can feed ICs on a circuit without having to start running patches... also to check voltage outputs are within range, so i dont blow things up - i guess i could buy a separate generator, thoughts/recommedations?
(need to generate both ac/dc waves, simple saw/sine/pulse/sq is fine)
current front runners are Rigol/Siglent due to price...
Siglent SDS1202X-E (really good on paper!)
Rigol DS1052E (or variations)
Owon XDS3062A Plus
the SDS1202X-E seems to be a newer model, and a great price....
unfortunately the wavegenerator models are quite a bit more expensive (almost double price), and I cant really justify 700-800 euros.
(perhaps i just need to build a couple of signal circuits, and save the cash )
id prefer a digital scope really for the ease of measuring/comparison and clarity of the display.
Id also prefer standalone rather than connect to my Mac, just dont want to risk blowing up a computer!
