Overview

Our take on the Terk VR-1

Tired of the blaring sound of TV commercials? Sick of having to squelch the volume whenever you switch to a louder channel? Terk's VR-1 TV volume regulator lets you enjoy clean, consistent sound while channel-surfing or watching your favorite shows. Its advanced digital signal processing responds within just thousandths of a second to reduce volume spikes or boost abnormally quiet scenes.

Tired of the blaring sound of TV commercials? Sick of having to squelch the volume whenever you switch to a louder channel? Terk's VR-1 TV volume regulator lets you enjoy clean, consistent sound while channel-surfing or watching your favorite shows. Its advanced digital signal processing responds within just thousandths of a second to reduce volume spikes or boost abnormally quiet scenes.

The VR-1 connects in-line between your TV and virtually any other type of home audio component via standard RCA audio connections. Once you've set the volume you want, just leave it alone — operation is fully automatic. A bypass button is provided if you prefer to hear a show's full dynamic range. This handy device even has built-in noise reduction technology to clean up audible "hiss" from noisy TV signals.

Note: To use the VR-1 with your TV, you need to either connect a component like a VCR or receiver to your TV's audio/video input or run line-level audio from your TV to a separate receiver or audio system, with the VR-1 connected in-line.

WORKS GOOD, SURE WILL SAVE MY EAR'S. BUT LACKS HAVING A ON OFF SWITCH..OR A AUDIO SIGNAL POWER SHUT OFF SWITCH..

Features

Overview: The Terk VR-1 TV Volume Regulator provides effective volume matching for television audio, DVDs, movies and more. It gives you consistent audio levels when surfing from channel to channel, program to program, program to commercial, or between quiet and loud scenes of a movie. In addition to TV, you can use the VR-1 for other audio components that use RCA connectors, such as CD players or MP3 players, to even the audio levels between discs or MP3 tracks.

Digital Signal Processing: It utilizes advanced digital signal processing for instant automatic audio adjustment, responding in .002 seconds to provide balanced audio levels. Noise Reduction technology minimizes the "hiss" that's present in some audio sources.

Automatic Gain Control: A multi-band automatic gain control adjusts bass and treble signals separately to improve dialog.

Connections/Controls: The VR-1 is easy to install. It has a stereo RCA input (for source audio) and a stereo RCA output (to feed to the TV audio input). The only control is a two-way slide switch for selecting "On" or "Bypass". Note: Line level audio connections on the TV are required.

Specifications:

  • Input Impedance: 20K ohms
  • Output Impedance: 600 ohms
  • Frequency Response: 20Hz-20kHz
  • Normalization: 30dB
