1U 5.1 VU Meter

The 1U 19″ 5.1 VU Meter
A 5.1 precision VU meter with attenuator mounted into a compact 1U rack.


The Crookwood 5.1 VU meter is a compact 1U VU meter with built in attenuator, so no matter how hot your mix or stem is, the VU s will work perfectly. Unlike the VUs placed on your gear, these VU meters are precision VUs that conform to BS6840:part 17 1991 & IEC268-17:1990, and the attenuator lets them work with signals up to +22dBu.
