Jackaroo: The-Test-Everything-Unit


The Jackaroo combination cable tester, signal generator, splitter, combiner, “gender-bender,” and more, is an indispensable audio “Aussie Army Knife” for studios, PA companies, repair shops, and contractors.

Packaged in a sturdy 2U rack-mount format, the Jackaroo boasts a wide assortment of front-panel inputs and outputs, including Neutrik XLR, 1/4” TRS, 1/8” TRS, RCA, 5-Pin MIDI, BNC, RJ11, and RJ45.

Any input can feed any output, making it a snap to test cables, split signals among multiple devices, separate left/right stereo signals, and connect equipment with dissimilar I/O configurations. Transformer-isolation, on-board continuously-variable passive attenuators with true switched bypass, and banana plug connections for continuity testing are also included.

The unit also sports a 100Hz/1kHz/10kHz signal generator, selectable output voltage power supply (AC and DC), ground lift, and a monitor speaker. The unit can function simultaneously as two separate devices, and for users who can‟t get enough of a good thing, multiple Jackaroos can be linked via a standard RJ45 cable.

Press reviews

“The Jackaroo has clearly been designed to cover a lot of bases and is a dead-set maintenance guy's dream.”
