    AD series is analog version one, analog version need to constantly calibrate the RH??

    No need, for AD just adjust to desired RH and you can leave it

    ok.
    just that for the first time, analog will take a longer to get calibrated to the desired RH?
    digital is faster?
    so for my case, analog is sufficient?

    Analog is sufficient in any case even for pros. It's the capacity you have to worry about

    Have you read the instruction booklet??

    if its at 72%.. as long you turn the correct side it should go down fast enough. wont take so long to see the differences. Im using analog digi cabi.. i turned to right to get 42%.. its pointing at 1pm/am now. (Note: Its said that all models have a slight differences..some is ok at 12..while some is at 1..etc etc.)

    Yea its normal.. it will take awhile..relax..and observe in a hr time. it should go down. To reach 40-45%.. you might need to wait until the next morning.

    lol! [U]NO[U] dry cabinet is instant. Even full digital cabinets take time to get you to your desired setting. Even though you set at 45% the meter will still take awhile to reach it. Analog cabis just require you to set how strong you want it to be, then the meter outside will tell you the % after it's done. it takes time to stabilise for the first time, and consequent changes can be made. as such, most people usually set it at max, then lower it accordingly to make it more humid to achieve their desired RH!
