Audiomatica Clio USB-based Clio 12


DBS Audio is the sole UK distributor for the Italian audio measuring specialist Audiomatica and their amazing Clio.


We are proud to supply Audiomatica's USB-based Clio 12 24-bit electro-acoustics and electronics test and measuring system, which is ideal for loudspeaker measurements and production line quality control. Clio 12 replaces their highly successful Fire-wire connected Clio 11, making it far more versatile for lab-based, production line and in-field measurements, while adding a few improvements in the bargain.


Clio 12, with Fw-02 twin-channel interface, is compatible with Windows from XP to 11. In addition to various further improvements, Audiomatica has added support for their open-source loudspeaker-measurement turntable with their latest V12.62 software version. Clio 12 is upgradable to the even more versatile Clio 12 QC by means of a software add-on. 


Clio12 and Clio 12QC are the industry standard for loudspeaker production line quality control and loudspeaker design and development in laboratories and factories all over the globe. It is use by many  leading hif-fi and pro-audio brands, in addition to universities, custom AV and Pro Audio installers. That's why Clio is the ideal solution in so many of these applications - and more.




Automatica's Clio Pocket is a miniature precision portable measurement system, based on their many years of experience in designing audio measuring systems. It loses nothing in accuracy over Clio 12, only omitting a second channel and Clio 12's more espteric measuring features, such as room acoustics, intelligibility, wow and flutter, etc. 


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 supply of its DC power.


The CP-01 is a lab-grade instrument, at a budget price and, just like the well-established Clio Fw-02 (Clio 12), it self- calibrates to stored factory settings, via the matching software to ensure highly accuracy  and repeatability.

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 Clio Pocket . The software contains the 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.

Audiomatica Clio under Windows and Mac Os


Clio Pocket software is now in V2.2 with many improvements over the original 1.5 (upgrades are available, for a small fee). V2.2 is compatible with Mac OS Catalina (whereas 1.5 was not). Clio Pocket 2.2 also runs under Windows, from Windows XP up to V11.

Pocket is ideal for a wide variety loudspeaker measurements, and has had some great press. Click below to read  Joe D'Appolito's excellent review in Audioxpress Magazine:  

Note: for tests on loudspeakers (other than impedance) , an external power amplifier, such as the Model 5 QC test box) is required. As with Clio 12, frequency response and impedance files may be exported to be used by loudspeaker design software for crossover and overall loudspeaker design.
