    I am trying to buy an oscilloscope for my son for Xmas. He is into audio and video and working on circuit boards. What should I buy for him?

    hi there Henry

    welcome to the forums :)

    for audio work and low frequency RF say up to ~ 3 or 4 MHz a 10MHz scope would be all you need

    there's a reasonable range out there these days and at quite affordable prices
    check out the Rigol range... http://au.price-selector.com/search?k=rigol oscilloscope&cid=1-3-1-1-5

    thats an australian site, you dont say which country you are from, but will probably find something similar in your region
    Looks like 10MHz scopes are a thing of the past, I see ones there starting at 40 and 50MHz bandwidth ....
    no problem to use at audio freq's and gives him room to go further without having to upgrade the scope
