    I have seen some photo's from members setup with what I assume are analog VU meters.
    Where/how are these connected to on the ST-70/120, thanks.

    You're not talking mine, are you?

    Those are set up for reading bias ... don't remember seeing one with VU ...

    My apologies if you were thinking another build - but it did give me yet another opportunity to show off my lil beauty ...  clown

    I DO know that getting the needle to flop about wouldn't be all that complicated, but getting it to do so accurately takes a fairly complex circuit ... think op amps to minimize the components involved.

    Here's a link to a basic setup that's well regarded ...
