AudioJog Pro 8 review from Guitarist
Welcome to Guitarist's regular round-up of the best of the rest of the gear that has passed through our hands this issue
AudioJoG Pro 8 - £152
The answer to all cable testing tasks? We think so.
It pays to check all leads regularly and
a cable tester provides a speedy way to
spot what’s gone wrong and where.
CableJoG’s AudioJoG Pro 8 has to be
one of the most fully featured examples
available and this beauty can test
virtually any cable you care to mention.
A sturdy and quite sizeable metal box
is adorned with every appropriate
connector, includingvarious types of
XLR, Speakon, phono, DIN, USB, BNC
and different size jacks. Power is via a
9V battery and the AudioJoG Pro 8
checks for continuity, short or open circuitsand crossed wires, with rows of LED’s providing the necessary visual confirmation.
Manual and automatic operation modes are provided, the latter uses an onboard memory to compare cables against stored details.
It’s simply a case of plug in, switch on, press the test button and then interpret the information
displayed, which is clearly explained in the comprehensive user guide.
For anyone who gigs hard and needs to keep their gear up to scratch, the AudioJoG Pro 8 is a
must , confirming that all important connectors work and accurately pinpointing problems. It
isn’t cheap , but in terms of insurance and prevention being better than cure , the cost can be
recouped pretty quickly. [PD]
