Cirrus Research PLC's Made Interview

The Invincible vs The Indestructible

"There is nothing out there that can rival the Optimus Red noise level meter for its intuitive technology and accuracy."

- Nick Phillips / Manufacturing Manager, Ilmor Engineering -

"The Optimus enables me to simultaneously get all the noise data I need, assess arising noise issues, make decisions, act on them immediately and record what's happening."

- Chris Selkirk (TechIOA) / Noise Consultant -

"It is a first class instrument and should be the prime tool of all environmental and occupational health officers - indeed all territorial officers should have this as their first port of call for noise measurements. It has all but exceeded all my expectations and I will be recommending it to all the health professionals I meet."

- Dr Philip Dickinson / Professor, Sound Centre at Massey University -

"We can use the Optimus in any part of the auditorium, on stage or back stage, so we can be very accurate in the data we collect across every part of Jersey Opera House."

- Chris Wink / Technical Manager, Jersey Opera House -
