Here are some specialized tools I could never do without when putting a Broadcast Station together. Purchase everything on this page for under $500.00 and you will be in good shape.
In all the stations I build every wire has a label.
Brady Wire Label Maker
Brady Label Tape
Brother P Touch Label Maker for Equipment
USB to Serial NULL cable. This is a must have to rescue a Barix 500.
USB to Ethernet Adapter. I would always have several of these. They come in real handy since may of the little computers don’t have ethernet connectors.
XLR-Female to 1/4 inch adapter. This is a handy testing tool to check if there is audio at an output, like the Barix 500.
