Default Stand alone meters recommendation

Hi all,

Can someone recommend a good external meter. I mix post and music (5.1 and intend to upgrade to Atmos HT), my interface is DAD AX32 (same as MTRX). Thanks

I have and LOVE my dorroughs. Been using them for about 15 years. I use the 40-c with 20 dB of headroom. Link (new)

I've purchased mine for about $350/ea used, but I've seen them for about $100-150 lately. Highly recommended.

If you want 7.1 (which you do for Atmos) or more the RTW touch monitors meters now have Dante so you don't have to block valuable AES or "regular" out for the meter. Not cheap obviously but saves a lot of cabling.

I am currently selling on eBay this amazing DK Technologies PT0760M.

Not Dolby Atmos per se though, phenomenal nevertheless.
