The PAA6 is an advanced, two-channel digital handheld professional audio analyzer from Phonic. All functions and menus are easily accessed through a 480 x 272 color touch-screen display. The PAA6 inherits significantly improved functions from the other popular models in the Phonic audio analyzer family, including real time spectrum, RT60, tone generator, LEQ, EQ setting and phase checking. Moreover, the PAA6 audio tester provides engineers with an even wider array of essential sound analysis tools than ever before - now adding SLM, FFT, THD+N, and scope functions to the mix, as well as two built-in mics that can take highly accurate measurements in any given situation. A USB connector and SD card slot have been included to assist in transferring information to and from your computer. This feature-rich, portable audio tester is sure to satisfy discerning professional audio engineers, regulatory enforcement agencies and product development teams.Digital 2-Channel Audio Analyzer with Color Touch LCD
Normally this kind of test gear is quite expensive, but despite some very pro aspects (love that color touch screen!) the PAA6 lists for $1,699.99 and the street price is around $1,200, making it affordable for serious studios, PA setups, bands looking to ring out the PA properly before a gig, and people who review gear and want to be able to say more about the specs than 'It sounds pretty quiet.'

Any minuses are outweighed by the ample pluses for the PAA6, including the bright and clear display, line-level inputs, the touch screen (which I prefered to the mini joystick) and a good range of practical and highly portable test functionality.

The PAA6 is packed with useful functions that any pro looking for hard data will enjoy.

All in all, the PAA6 can satisfy any audio engineer’s needs in terms of sound analysis, still keeps a handheld design with easy access to functions and pretty much outdoes any competitor on the market today. If you’re a working DJ who wants the best for his studio or general sound analysis, the PAA6 is for you.
