Term Definition
vu meters

A volume unit (VU) meter or standard volume indicator (SVI) is a device displaying a representation of the signal level in audio equipment. The Acoustical Society of America
standardized it in 1942 (C16-5 - 1942) for use in telephone installation and radio broadcast stations. Consumer audio equipment
often features VU meters, both for utilitarian purposes (e.g. in recording equipment) and for aesthetics (in playback devices).
