Audio Precision is the recognised standard in audio test and measurement worldwide. For over forty years, AP has offered high-performance audio analysers, accessories, and applications to help engineers design, validate, characterise, and manufacture consumer, professional and industrial audio products.
The UK and Ireland comprises one of the top audio design markets in the world, and AP is proud to directly serve this market out of our UK office. Our knowledgeable staff can help you with technical expertise and audio test challenges.
Most recently, imc Test and Measurement and GRAS Sound & Vibration joined AP under the Battery Ventures parent umbrella, bringing together three great brands under one platform. As such, we now offer imc and GRAS products through AP UK Ltd, alongside our AP audio testing suite.

Rental: For short term projects, Audio Precision has an inventory of our standard configuration audio analysers available for rental. All rental analysers are ISO:17025 calibrated.
Leasing: For UK companies that prefer small monthly payments over a capital outlay, Audio Precision offers long-term leases through an arrangement with RFL Credit. Leasing is equally ideal for startups that need test gear to get to market and established companies that want to keep engineers equipped with the latest technology while conserving capital.
Please contact the AP UK office to coordinate rental requests and leases.
