    I LIKE IT A LOT
    Product Rating
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I give this 5 stars because I like it a lot. The variety available for options of the type cables you can test pretty much covers the gauntlet for the most common type the average music and sound artist would have available to them. One thing that puzzled me was for the 1/4 inch jacks. That I/O selection is labeled TRS but it appears that an standard TS instrument cable is accepted as well. Changing the selector lights to 3 different points with a varying light array indicating the cables status has me a little confused still as there are no instructions provided with this item to describe what it is you might be looking at at any particular time. It does appear though that as long as you have a variety of 3 different LEDS lighting up for you that the cable is alright. I say this because I have one cable I know to be useless and no lights light up in the configuration of both TRS and TS cables that do function normally. Bottom line: An instruction sheet would be a nice extra
