CTP dB box2 Audio Tester
The CTP dBbox2 Analogue, AES/EBU & SPDIF Audio Tester is now supplied with version 2 firmware CTP present the second incarnation of the essential equipment for the sound and audio installation engineer. The CTP dBbox2 allows monitoring, metering and generation of analogue, AES/EBU and SPDIF audio from a pocket sized box.
The dBbox2 includes a simple five key menu interface to make any test as simple as possible.
The case has been formed using purpose designed aluminium extrusion then machined and painted to give the unit it’s very individual look.
The architecture of the dBbox2 is based around a powerful digital signal processor and a separate microcontroller allowing them to add many more features in the future with just a firmware download from the website.
For the future CTP are also working on software to allow the dBbox2 to be used as a ‘test hub’ allowing it to be controlled by both PC and Mac software with test sequences and results available on the computer screen.
The SPDIF functions are available on the input and output BNC connectors.
The dBbox2 takes a PP3 size battery, alkaline battery highly recommended. Battery life is around 8 hours continuous but very much depends on the function selected. With phantom power selected, a fair bit less!
CTP also offer a soft case for the unit and a universal mains adaptor.
Dimensions: 146mm tall, 89mm wide, 48mm deep.
