A new bench multi-meter for the lab

Even though my work on vintage Marantz audio equipment has slowed down a lot in the past year, my over time spent in the lab and on the bench has increased.  

With so many projects to complete each week, I am always looking for ways to improve my work bench and become more efficient.  So what does this mean in real world terms. . . new bench equipment.

This past week I receive my new Agilent bench multi-meter, a 34461A.  The 34461A will replace my old Fluke 8050A.

The capabilities of the 34461A are so advanced compared the the 8050A that it's like going from a Model T Ford to a Tesla Model S.  

I'm not going to try to review the 34461A, there are so many really good reviews already on line that anything I could says would just be redundant.  

My decision to buy the 34461A was based on my need for better and more accurate measurements.  Many of the projects I work on each week are much more advanced than my Vintage Audio projects.

After just 1 week of having the 34461A. I can already see an improvement in my productivity.
