Connevans offer a choice of 4 in-line telephone amplifiers each with their own advantages. The following is the view of the Connevans evaluation panel.
T-Loud is good value product with a reasonable 20dB amplification, with some telephones there can be fractional delay when turning on.
The CLA40 vox has a notched tone adjustment but with its shorter physical movement is more difficult to set – but when set you would rarely need to adjust it. If offers a 30dB max gain with an easy to use slider control plus a 10dB ‘Boost’ button for occasional added amplification.
The PL51 has volume and tone controls with a longer physical slider movement than the CLA40 which makes adjustment easier and the changes appear more gradual.
The PL51 has the rather nice feature of a 3.5 output socket for use with headphones, neck loop or direct input.
PL51 & CLA40 vox The sound quality, maximum volume and range of tone adjustment is virtually the same for these two products. Many people will choose between them just by looks! Both products have sliding volume and tone controls and a boost button which operates whilst it is held down.
The boost buttons either give a 10dB increase (CLA40) or a doubling boost (PL51), the effect of this is that the PL51 may be appear to give a louder boost but the maximum gain on both products when used with boost is 40dB. The CLA40 offers the highest gain (30dB) without pressing a ‘Boost’ button.
All these amplifiers are for use with corded phones with detachable handsets. Connection is very easy and the same for all models – the in-line amplifier is connected between the ‘curly’ handset cable and the telephone base unit (via the 4 pin modular RG10 connector). Basically, the ‘curly’ handset is unplugged from the phone and the in-line amplifier connected instead. The handset cable is then plugged into the in-line amplifier - see illustration at bottom of page.
All the in-line telephone amplifiers have a battery and an automatic ‘turn off’ when not in use.
Please note that if you try to use an in-line telephone amplifier with an already amplified telephone you will probably have problems with feedback and distorted sound from the handset.
How is an in-line amplifier connected?
The in-line telephone handset amplifier connects between the curly handset cable and the telephone - if you do not have a handset with a curly plug in cable you have no where to plug it in, in which case you cannot use this product.
