DACS Test Lab - Test Bench

Test box that has onboard combo jack, speakon, TRS inputs to test cable integrity and more

Product Description

The original test-box which became the DACS Test Lab was literally home-grown originally. Just the oscillator and cable tester, it was built to address the particular tests to solve the technical issues which arose during DACS Ltd installation/live sound projects. It was called the ‘anti-panic’ device. To optimize the Test Lab, DACS listened to other audio professionals, brainstormed more suggested features, and refined those already included. The final result is a feature-packed but portable product which tells you all you need to know in those situations you'd rather never happened. The SNR of useful information to interfering information is off the charts.


  • Cable Integrity - tests signal path, connections and wiring both locally and remote for phono, TRS jack, XLR, and Speakon (with 26dB pad). The incoming signal level is indicated by a 10 LED bar graph; the signal content can be auditioned for anomalies on the built-in loudspeaker.
  • Cable Connectors - tests for correct pin wiring either on the box or with remote plug, automatically cycling through the connections to reveal reversals, shorts and open contacts.
  • Signal Generation - can send variable level tone (70Hz, 1kHz and 4.5kHz and repeating sequence of all three) or Pink Noise to external units and loudspeakers.
  • Power Test - the IEC mains input can be used to power the unit but doubles as a mains tester indicating the presence and voltage (110VAC and 230VAC± 10%) of a live input.
  • Illumination - Lid light (white for detail, or red to maintain night vision) for soldering or checking connectors; front torch.
  • Bells and whistles - None. Just an easy-to-read multi-purpose led array which provides essential engineering information in an instant.
  • Physical - Rugged construction, nonslip base, mains or battery operation, and just the right size (L 6.6 inches, W 5.1 inches, H 2.3 inches)

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
