Prism Sound’s dScope Series III Brings Portability To Stonepower’s Audio Test Facilities

The need for a portable piece of audio test equipment – something that could travel and be easily connected to a laptop has led to the development of a significant solution.
The Prism Sound dScope Series III audio analyser is now the mainstay of the test lab for engineer, Peter Watts.
He has been operating his R&D consulting business Stonepower Ltd from wherever he happens to be in the world. At present, he is based in South Wales but he has also spent time in Hong Kong and China, working alongside manufacturers producing a range of equipment, from mixers and signal processing units to amplifiers and line array speaker systems.
Prism Sound’s dScope Series III is a comprehensive and powerful measurement system for analogue and digital audio generation and analysis, including digital audio carrier testing and testing of Windows sound devices. This industrial strength audio test and measurement system comprises a Windows PC (XP and Vista compatible) software application coupled with an external high-precision audio I/O processor for equipment-under-test (EUT) connections.
“While I was based in China and Hong Kong I had no need for my own audio analyser because most of the manufacturers I was working with already had them,” said Watts. “However, when I returned to the UK I realised that I needed to establish my own test facility to check the audio systems and circuits I was designing for my clients.
"I investigated various possibilities but eventually chose the Prism Sound dScope Series III because recent software developments have made this one of the most highly sophisticated analysis tools on the market. It is also incredibly portable and versatile, which were important considerations for me.”
At the moment, Watts is using his dScope Series III to test circuits for analogue and digital mixers.
Peter Watts is well-known within the pro audio industry for his research and development credentials. After 18 years with console manufacturer Trident – 10 of which were spent as Head of R&D – Watts moved to Mackie where he was Vice President of Engineering for seven years. In 2003 he moved into audio consultancy and set up Stonepower Ltd.
His clients include many of the MI and pro audio industries top manufacturers including Korg, Mackie, Gibson, Ashdown, Apogee Digital, Rode/Event, Wharfdale Pro/IAG and Alto. He has also worked closely with factories in China helping them to establish production lines for his clients.
