It stinks. The darn fan is not even temperature controlled! And the latest generation is louder than the last (I think). Of all companies to cut cost to the tune of $2 to make the fan temp controlled.Yknow, I've never understood why AP wouldn't make their boxes passively cooled, or at least put silent fans in (maybe a temperature threshold for them to turn on?). It's an audio measurement device, after all. I've used several of their products at work and all of them have noticeably noisy annoying fans.
Their solution by the way was to produce another model that is silent just for measuring headphones!
I can't stand the noise for even 15 seconds. It gets to me and puts in me bad mood. Without headphones to wear while testing, I could not handle 10% of what I do! I put mine in a rack and it is quieter there but still this annoying.
