I know we have quite a few experienced pro-audio folks here, so I’m hoping I can get some help with this (Arny, FOH, I’m looking at you!).
I’ve noticed that on occasion Yamaha will give noise specs as “dBm” for their pro audio components. What’s up with that? As far as I can tell, dBm is no longer an industry-accepted designation for audio specifications and these days is more typically seen in radio, microwave and fiber optic networks.
Is there any way to translate their dBm spec to a more traditional dBu?
