Default Putting an end to the dd-1 vs scope debate

One tool (DD-1) is used to sense distortion at 1%
One toos(Oscope) Is used to see clipping


I am so sick of seeing oh my scope made me louder or my scope is better dd-1 is better yadda yadda yadda

they are two very different tools for use in different ways

If you really know how to use your tools you would have both (like me)
DD-1 i use to see the distortion at a certain frequency. You dont have to only use 40 hz or 1k hz its just those detect lights that light up. Ive been using 30 and 3k for a while just fine on the dd-1 and its accurate.
The oscope (I got a dso nano yet again) I cant see the distortion but i can see clipping. And if im looking for an sq oriented setup ill use my dd-1 if i want to get loud and **** everything else. Ill use the oscope......

Seriously guys stop hatin on one or the other when they arent even the same. Thats like me hatin on sundown because i run klipsch....

Yes a "cheap digital" scope might not show distortion, but a nice old analog scope will.
I prefer to see the signal and make my own judgement of signal quality, not based on a light.

DD-1 = simple
Scope = a little understanding needed.

sorry bro but not everyone is going to drag out a 30 pound scope. or pay 300$ for that scope anyway. Right now its the dso and the other handheld that is huge for like 150 and i cant see distortion on it either unless i zoom in 100x and anylize it. Im a scope guy. but the dd-1 has deffinitly earned its place here.

Let's see, my scope cost $75, doesn't weigh 30lbs and can be found on CL for little to nothing.

If you're lazy and don't want to hassle with a scope, use the DD-1. Plain and simple!

tony, i think you are never going to get thru to the dd-1 haters and i beleave 75 % of the problem is the hate for smd the other 25% is pepole just cant wrap their mind around the fact that ist too simple and anyone who uses it must be lazy, a noob, dumb ,slow and whatever excuse they have to use to put the product and user down.

i mean if you hate the dd-1 dont freakin buy it and if somebody says ist better than the scope then please get your panties in a bunch and flame on the dd-1 but every time a discussion or sale comes up pepole need to bash the product why? if somebody where to show me a side by side compareson where they set the gains with a dd-1 and then they scoped them and they were off then id be the first to start the bashing .

here is another perfect example ive seen pepole refer to the clip light on a amp remote as a noob magnet or whatever but yet sundown does it on the new amps and all of a sudden its freaking genious to have one and ok for the experienced amp users to use because the cool company said so . pleae dont confuse my refrence to sundown negative i love sundown and jacob i just used that as an example because the products are top noth and highly respected .
