    The DT9205A has a 20 amp range, measures capacitance, tests transistors, and has all the standard Volt-Ohm ranges. It also has auto power off, which must have been invented for people like me. The position (viewing angle) of the display is adjustable, which is kind of a cool feature.

    The 9805A by Victor is a really good, moderately priced meter. I like it particularly well because it will not only do the standard voltage, resistance, and current measurements, it will also do inductance, capacitance, and frequency. And, the value ranges provided are in the ballpark for what we see in PTP guitar amps. It also has a temperature probe which is great for monitoring transformers and other devices for problems. At this price, if you blow one up it's cheap enough to just toss it and buy a new one. Incidentally, I've had a 9805A for almost two years and I haven't blown it. On the contrary, I decided to try one because my Fluke died, it wasn't that old, and the repair cost was too high for me to justify. I think Fluke just replaces the entire guts as standard repair.

    The X830L also tests transistors and will measure current up to 10 amps. It also features a momentary (5 seconds) blue backlighting for the display. No big deal, but kind of cool.
