Not to worry. AAC will be here at your service.The meter does pick up movement on the output when I have the analog set at it's lowest scale. I will buy a digital meter this week and look back at this. For the next few weeks though, the weekends will be tied up so I will not be able to get back to the amp for awhile. I hope you are around in a couple of weeks (or more), so I can get a little more guidance. Thanks for sticking it out with me. I will look on here once in awhile in the meantime. I'm still wrestling with what cheap meter to buy will they all pick up .33 or less?
There is no need to sell the barn in order to acquire a decent DMM. They often go on sale at your local hardware store for under $20, sometimes as low as $10.
Check out your local Home Depot. There is a Klein Tools model MM300 for under $30.
