Thanks for all the info!
Sounds like the M3 kit is perfect for me, so I sent an email.
I'd seen the AADE kit as well, and it too looks good. It'll be my fallback if the M3 guys don't respond, as I really like the extra features (and range) in the M3.
The drawbacks seem easily tolerable to my temperament. I'm even likely to try to make a membrane to go over the buttons, just for fun.
It'll be nice to have a proper tool for the job instead of trying to get things measured with a multimeter and a 555 circuit all the time.
Thanks again for helping fill in the blanks.  :)

Upgrades from earlier versions are provided free to the original purchaser.
To receive the latest revision you must send your LCRZ meter to M-Cubed Electronix for reprogramming

Well, the current firmware is the same as when I bought mine 2 years ago, so it's plenty mature.  If it makes you feel any better, just pretend it's not upgradeable at all, like most meters ;D

Sad news from M3:

--- Quote from: Mike - KC8WR ---I am sorry to say that M-Cubed Electronix, Inc. ceased business operations on June 30, 2010.  The LCRZ meter kit is no longer available.
The web site information is there only while we attempt to sell the business.

Looks like I missed the boat on this one. I'll be keeping an eye on them though, as I'd love to see their meter go back into production.

i also have one but now i need to repair it and have lost the construction and alignment manual, do you still have one?
