RE: Actually ...

What difference does it make what I do? I own two digital multimeters with continuity test functions that produce an audible beep or tone. One is a BK Test Bench 390 handheld multimeter and the other is a Fluke Dual Display Bench-top Multimeter.

Just because you have no use for an audible continuity test function doesn't mean that others don't use it. As I mentioned before, if you have a number of continuity tests to make, the audible tone saves time. For example, suppose you have a bunch of cables to test for continuity. You can speed up the process when you don't have to continually look at the meter's display instead of simply listening for a tone or beep. If you don't get a tone, you can set that cable aside for further inspection.

I was also an electronic technician before becoming a mechanical engineer. I've been using electronic test equipment since I was 20-years old and I'm now 76. I've also been an audiophile for the same length of time, and I've done a lot of testing on my own audio equipment. Moreover, I was a PMEL technician in the Air Force where I calibrated and repaired oscilloscopes, meters, and signal generators. Then the Air Force sent me to school in mechanical engineering at the University of Arizona where I received my BSME degree and was subsequently commissioned a second lieutenant. I worked as an aircraft/nuclear weapon integration engineer until I was promoted to captain and transferred to the B-2 Stealth Bomber Development Program. I later retired from the Air Force with 23-years of service.

Here's a picture of some of the electronic equipment I own today.
