    How do I link a decibel meter?

    I have heard that to monitor at 85db is the correct volume, but how can I know what is 85db?

    I have seen there are rackmount meters, do they have a mic built in or something?

    As for metering, get a handheld SPL meter (or even use your smartphone with an app) but measure where you normally sit, not in the rack
