JK Audio INLINE overview

  • 1Description

The JK Audio Inline Patch Telephone Audio Recorder Interface is an interface patch between telephone lines and audio devices such as speakers, amplifiers and recorders. The idea behind the Inline Patch is to provide a simple solution for anyone who requires a phone tap for the purpose of recording or amplifying telephone conversations. The Inline Patch connects between the telephone wall jack and the base of any analog or cordless telephone requiring standard RJ11C telephone cable.

Full duplex communication between the talkers is captured with great accuracy and hybrid circuitry provides a nominal 20dB of signal isolation between the transmit and receive signals. This minimizes the noise and cross-talk associated with audio over phone lines. Balanced XLR and unbalanced 1/8" (3.5mm) Send To Phone inputs allow line level audio to be fed over the phone line. A balanced XLR output isolates incoming signal from the phone line. A pair of additional 3.5mm mini outputs provide a stereo (isolated left/right) or mono mix of send, receive and line level audio signal.

Inline Operation
The Inline Patch is a simple, effective solution for recording or capturing audio over phone lines. The Inline Patch connects between a wall jack and analog or cordless telephone base.
Flexible Routing
XLR and 3.5mm mini line level inputs provide line level signal feeds over phone lines. A line level XLR output provides an isolated output for incoming signal while a pair of 3.5mm outputs provide a stereo and mono mix of both line and send / receive signals.
Suitable for Demo or Teleconference Presentation
The Inline Patch is suitable for connecting to powered speakers and using a cordless phone as a wireless intercom device for presentation and teleconferencing application.
Comprehensive Controls
The front panel features level control of send and receive telephone signal as well as line level signal. A Separation dial adjust the amount of isolation between send and receive signals.
Hybrid Technology
Hybrid circuitry provides a nominal 20dB of signal isolation between the transmit and receive signals. This minimizes the noise and cross-talk associated with audio over phone lines.

    JK Audio INLINE reviews

    Inline Patch Telephone Audio Recorder Interface is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for conference but not what I need. I wanted to buy this for taking phone calls in my home studio. I was a little frustrated at the hum in the line, but phone lines are notorious for bringing in extra noise anyway. It was easy to set this up and connect. If you're thinking of using this to send audio down your phone line and record a call, it's ok, but for me, I realized that I needed a digital hybrid to do more professional recording, like at a radio station. I ended up returning this unit and buying a Telos One. If this model isn't what you need, you should then look into the JK Audio Broadcast Host. It's similar to the Telos One. I was just familiar with Telos from being in radio for so long.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Has more features than similarly priced units Comes with a phone patch cable for connecting from phone line. Used on a broadcast truck for looping in the captioner who was working the job, but can be used in any other capacity where you need to put a phone line on either outgoing audio from a mixing board or incoming audio from the phone line. Unless you need the ability to not have to plugin the unit then I would go with this one and not the others available (that don't require AC). It has more features and cleans up the audio coming from the phone line about as much as is possible. I also have the cell phone interface from this company and they all work as expected.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good performer, Does the Job. Our aging Gentner went belly up a couple of days before an extended VO session with the producer phoning in to the session distantly. We got this unit while trying to fix the Gentner, and ulimately we left the JK box in place due to ease of use. It's not a phone bridge for multiple lines, but from cell phone to land line, we had no issues - it just worked right out of the box. ...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from JK Audio products just work! I had a JK product before and wanted to upgrade to the Inline Patch because it would do what I wanted. Boy, it has done everything they said it would. We call in from various stadiums and venues on a POTS line and the inline patch goes into our sound board seamlessly. Our live events really go well when I know the Inline Patch is working and working and working.
    Date published: 2010-10-05
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as advertised Interfacing audio gear to a telephone line is a major pain in the butt, but this gadget made it easy. I use it to teleconference...as I'm hard of hearing, I needed to hook up a nice, loud headphone amplifier to the phone line and needed input and output to be adjustable...the Inline Patch has plenty of input/output control plus degree of separation. I would have been happier if the telephone input and output had been on the back of the unit with the rest of the interfacing...seems kinda weird to put them in front.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from With little work, got what I needed! I bought this to record training sessions over phone calls. I'm still having a little problems with my volume x other people, but probably didn't have time to go through it with the attention it requires. After recoding and doing a little noise reduction, got what I needed - Very good product - I recommend it.
    Date published: 2008-10-28
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phone Patch Solution 101 Nice product. Read the manual so you understand where the cables come and go. You can test this by having a friend call or call yourself with you cell to set it up. Once that is done you should not need to touch it again. Quality of sound is good for a phone. My clients kept asking for a phone patch and you can't go wrong with this one. COZ (VOICE)
    Date published: 2013-01-22
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works well, poor design The unit works well, and I have not been able to find anything else on the market that performs the same function. But the cheap experimenter's case and front placement of the phone lines make it less than ideal.At the price point offered, you would think they would design one with the phone jacks on the back out of the way, if not in a rack mount case....
