Electro Acoustic Solutions


USB based Clio V12


DBS Audio is the sole UK distributor for the Italian audio measuring specialist Audiomatica.


We are proud to supply Audiomatica's USB-based Clio V12 24-bit electro-acoustics and electronics test and measuring system, replacing their highly successful Fire wire connected V11 and making it far more versatile for both lab-based and in the field measurements and adding a few improvements in the bargain. 


Clio is the industry standard for production line quality control in factories all over the globe. It is also in use in the R&D laboratories of many leading hif-fi and pro-audio brands, in addition to universities, custom AV and Pro Audio installers and distributors. Clio is the ideal solution in so many applications.

That is why we prefer to talk about solutions rather than products.



Audiomatica's Clio Pocket is a miniature precision portable measurement system.


Clio Pocket's tiny CP-01 audio interface is so compact that it can literally fit into a trouser pocket.


Totally flexible for portable use, it requires only a single USB2 connection to a computer for the generation and acquisition of signals and DC power.


The CP-01 is a lab-grade instrument, at a budget price and, just like the well-established Clio fw, it self- calibrates to stored factory settings, via the matching software to ensure highly accurate and repeatable measurement. 

Clio Pocket is presented in a protective plastics carry case and includes a MIC-02 (Lite version), phantom-powered electret microphone and all the connecting leads required, including a 2.7m low-noise- microphone cable.


So, with the addition of a small Windows or Apple Mac laptop, Clio Pocket makes a handy and extremely accurate portable audio measuring system.

Audiomatica have put their many years of expertise into the Clio Pocket version. The software contains its most useful measurements and post-processing features which loudspeaker and audio engineers need on a day to day basis. Bought by many of our professional Clio 11 and 12 customers as an additional measuring system, it is also well within financial reach of enthusiastic amateur designer and DIY speaker builders. 


Clio software is renowned in professional circles for its versatile measuring suite, powerful post-processing options and intuitive graphic user interface. Please note: Clio Pocket files are readable by Clio 12 software.


Clio Pocket software is available for use with Apple's macOS up to 10.4 Mojave (32 bit) in addition to MS OS (up to Windows 10, 64 bit) operating systems. Please Note: Clio Pocket is not yet ready for OS 10.5 Catalina (64 bit). Users are recommended not to upgrade to Catalina 10.5 until 64 bit software is available (scheduled for sometime in the first half of 2020). Any users upgrading by mistake, may be able to regress their OS to 10.4 using Apple time machine.



Pocket has had some great press. Click here to read  Joe D'Appolito's excellent review in Audioxpress Magazine:  


Clio Pocket  software is now in V 2.0, with enhanced measuring and processing capabilities over the original V1.5 (we can arrange for existing customers with V1.5  to upgrade to V2.0  for a fee: please e-mail us for details).


Note: for tests on loudspeakers (other than impedance) , an external power amplifier, such as the Model 5 QC test box) is required.
