JK Audio THAT2 overview

  • 1Description

The JK Audio THAT-2 is a telephone audio interface that connects between the telephone receiver and base. THAT-2 is designed to capture audio to record and play sound bytes or to send IFB dialog over phone lines. The compact telephone tap features balanced and unbalanced XLR and RCA I/O connectors.

The audio connections are used for sending line level signal down phone lines or capturing a mix of send and receive audio. A 3-position switch enables THAT-2 to be used with either a carbon, dynamic or electret style receiver (receivers with keypads are not compatible). Level adjust dials provide control over send and receive levels. THAT-2 is a compact, passive device that requires no external power source.

Convenient Design
THAT-2 is a compact telephone tap that connects between the receiver and base of any standard analog telephone. The tap allows users to send line level feeds down telephone lines or capture send and receive signal for sound byte recording.
Handset Selector
THAT-2 is compatible with dynamic, electret or carbon style receivers (handsets with keypads are not compatible).

    JK Audio THAT2 reviews

    THAT-2 Telephone Handset Audio Tap is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 24.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is perfect for what we are doing I pastor a Church and we wanted to begin a phonecast for individuals who cannot hear our webcast over the internet or attend the servie in person. I neded an interface that would take the audio signal out of the main board to our telephone. This product works perfect. It is easy to install and operate, which is valuable asset for the volunteers that work in the sound dept. The signal is clear and produces a good volume, which can be adjusted with the volume control, if needed. The product also has a nice feature of being able to carry audio FROM the phone to the board. This will be helpful when I wish to interview an upcoming speaker and allow the congregation to listen.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from THAT-2 Worked Perfectly I needed to do a telephone audio recording while on location with one of my customers and this offered a very good and simple solution. The only problem - and it was NOT caused by the THAT-2 - was that I had a hum using AC power to my Marantz 670 recorder even with an inline isolation device so I ran on battery power and had very little noise and what was left was easily filtered out in Soundtrack Pro. I've had fluctuating voltage problems at this site when shooting video there so the hum was no surprise. The Handset/Line In selector can function as a mute button on the recorder end and this was a very important feature for me. THAT-2 is a VERY useful addition to my audio equipment.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, But Not Perfect I use the THAT-2 to record phone conferences when I am away from my studio and don't want to bring along my Gentner AP-10. I connect the THAT-2 to my BATTERY OPERATED Sony PCM-D50, and the combination works perfectly. I have been unable to use the THAT-2 with any AC powered recorder without getting significant hum on the recording. Although I would recommend this device to a friend, I would be sure to suggest testing it out in the desired application before using it on an important job. (Perhaps I have just been spoiled by the Gentner phone interface.) The THAT-2 certainly cannot be beaten for small size and ruggedness. Also, the THAT-2 doesn't care if it is used with an analog or digital phone line, because it connects between the base and handset.
    Date published: 2008-10-06
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from very capable with caveats In lieu of a comparatively much more expensive phone line tap, this HANDSET tap is great for inserting mixer or device audio into phone calls and conferences. Just note that you'll need to provide your own land-line telephone WITH a detachable wired handset (something that is becoming incresingly rare with the ubiquity of cellular devices). That said, this device handles sound cleanly and with a quality that JK Audio is known for.
    Date published: 2014-09-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love This That! I admit I am a very amateur recordist and phone tapper. I bought the That-2 to record an important but last minute interview with a client in California and had almost no time to read the instructions. But it was simple to operate and the quality of the voice recording (using a Tascam DR-40) was excellent. A heads-up for other amateurs--you must use the That-2 with a corded phone whose buttons are not on the handset. The people at B&H made sure I knew that before I left the store. I'd recommend this product highly.
    Date published: 2013-07-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for what I needed As a recording studio owner and engineer, I needed producers to be able to hear clear audio over long distance telephone land lines. I can now have voice over talent come in to record and the producer can be anywhere in the world. For $...it was well worth the investment. It will pay for itself in one voice over session!
    Date published: 2011-04-05
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from THAT-2 WORKS THAT-2 is a lovely piece of hardware. It's easy to figure out based on the external diagrams on the box. It comes with all necessary cabling and works seamlessly with the edirol r-44 external recorder. The downside is that the output is rather noisy but can be cleared up slightly with the proper use of filers and gates.
    Date published: 2012-10-29
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product in its class Bought this on the recommendation of colleagues who use it for recording telephone interviews. Works as advertised. This is not a digital hybrid, so you won't get the same results as a unit costing 4-10 times as much, but it looks to be constructed robustly, and it does a reasonably capable job. Compact size but weighs more than you might think indicating more metal than plastic inside. XLR connectors a big plus for me.
