I’m looking for a new multimeter that will last me a few years and was after some advice. I like Fluke’s range and have this one in mind:

I think it does everything I need, but just wanted to check there’s no point looking further up the range? I’m primarily going to be using it for tinkering with Arduino kits, audio amps etc.

I was originally trying to stick to a $200 budget… Is there any point shelling out more for a high precision device just in case I need one down line?

Fancier alternatives include:

Fluke 177
Fluke 87-5

Thanks
