            Comments about Pyle Pro PCT60 13-in-1 Audio Cable Tester:

            I've had a version of this product for a long time. The first I had was blue, called a Swiss Army tester which someone felt they needed more than I. The second was silver with a Behringer lable on it as a CT-100, which I still have and continues to work great. This is an upgrade as it adds more connectors on a larger box but seems to have the same chip and testing technology as the others.

            The issues you will find that in comparison to the rotary knob 1-1, 2-2, 3-3, etc type testers, this does 3 at a time. So for the NL8 with the mysteriously labled switch in the SW1 position, you see +1, -1, and one of the 2's. Not sure yet which one. SW2 shows the other 2, +3, -3 and finally SW3 shows +4/-4. Testing an NL8- 2x NL4 cable takes some thinking as to the lights shown.

            All in all having to take a moment to think about odd cables is worth not spending much more on a cable tester without my favorite features - Intermittent tells, installed cable test modes, and the test tones. I'll be developing a cheat sheet I think.

            This unit was an upgrade from the PCT-10 which we ordered first. The PCT-10 came defective on two orders. The RCA jacks would come loose on the case. I moved up to this model hoping for better quality. The unit came scratched in numerous places. One of the working switches came with a chip off of the arm and it doesn't rest in the proper home position. It's on a different setting than whats marked on the case. Looks like a factory "second" which didn't get full attention from the quality inspectors. B&H is very good on issuing a return. I just feel sorry for B&H for all the issues with this supplier.

            Comments about Pyle Pro PCT60 13-in-1 Audio Cable Tester:

            First one arrived scraped and dented, it was obviously used. B&H handled the exchage with competence & courtesy. 2nd unit arrived in somewhat better condition than the first but still had multiple scrapes on the bottom & sides, I'm sending it back for a refund. I didn't try it out as it doesn't come with the required 9v battery (grrr). Connector quality is not very good, in particular the PLASTIC body 1/4" jacks will likely not be very durable (I HATE plastic threads), the USB connectors are of obviously low quality as well. Should be ok for a hobbiest, but it's not something I'd trust to take on the road or to use for critical shop applications.

                The tester works as advertised. The only complaint I have is that the only documentation I got with it is what is printed on the box and it is incomplete. Some of the functions and switches are not described.

                    I haven't had this long, but ill give a few thoughts towers this cable tester. The biggest issue i had was getting the battery compartment door off. It was just a wee bit stuck, which i managed to pry apart with a razor blade. Inside the battery compartment you need two AA batteries. I had a hard time getting the batteries in the holder. You basically have to force them in where they fit and the plastic walls kind of bend out so it winds up being a really snug fit. Other then them issues i would say it works well and has just about every known, and even some wire types ive never seen before.

                        The battery life on the tester is fantastic.
                        Quick and accurate tester with many options available.
                        The tester makes it incredibly easy to isolate the source of the problem. Simply set the tester to the desired type cable to be tested and with the flip of a switch, instant , accurate readings.
