Do the cheap fluke units allow locking to a 1 pps signal? If so, you could sell 
a GPS locked version for even more!

The point made in

http://www.g8wrb.org/useful-stuff/pdf/audiophools.pdf

is that the people that do this sort of thing must have pretty deep pockets, 
which you don't associate with stupid people. (There are exceptions of course). 
There was a guy I was at school with. His parents were richer than most of us in 
the working class area of Walthamstow, East London.

He did advanced level (A-level) in physics, chemistry and maths, just like me. 
He used speaker cables that had arrows on them pointing in the direction the 
music was supposed to flow. I asked him why. He could not offer any explanation 
of any logic for this, but still bought them, as he could afford to.
