Just wandering if there is any way to change the range when in fine audio metering mode on these decks? I've had a scan of the manual, which makes no mention of such a feature as far as I can see. Just thought I'd enquire on the off chance. Thanks, Tim.
We have a 5500 and a 5800.
I've never seen anything in the menu settings to adjust the default +/- 2 around 0 in the fine setting. Thinking about it, it would be cool if you could slide the fine scale up and down so that you could have the same monitoring around -24 for narration for instance, or up to -10 or whatever to finely analyze peaks. Unfortunately, I think outboard audio monitoring equipment is the only way to do this. I haven't seen it on a VTR yet.

Hi Chad, thanks for your response. I had a feeling that there would be no way to change the range, but it would indeed be a cool feature - perhaps for a future firmware update. Sony, are you reading?! Cheers, Tim.
