DATS V2.1 is the latest edition of the Dayton Audio Test System for measuring speaker parameters. The original DATS set new standards for speed, accuracy and precision in audio impedance testing. Now DATS V2 expands and improves everything users have come to love about DATS. The price remains unchanged at $99.95.

All DATS or WT3 users can Download DATS V2.1 Software Here.

For full details with screen shots see the DATS V2.1 Brochure.

New for DATS V2:

  • DATS V2.1 Now Prints Labels: DATS now prints labels with the basic driver parameters via Brother QL700 series label printers.

    DATS V2.1 Prints Labels!

  • Greatly simplified setup: The new DATS V2 hardware greatly simplifies setup such that most users can just plug it in and start testing without needing to fiddle with Windows audio settings.

  • Enhanced capacitor measurement: The new capacitor measurement module goes beyond just
    measuring the capacitor’s value and now includes measurement of the capacitor's equivalent series
    resistance (ESR), dissipation factor (DF), quality factor (Q) and loss angle (δ) at three different
    frequencies: 120, 1k and 10k Hz.

  • Wright Parameters: Loudspeaker parameter measurement has been expanded to include the Wright
    parameters which are especially useful for precision simulation. The Wright parameters allow for the
    accurate reproduction of a driver's high frequency inductive impedance from the four new parameters: KR
    XR KI and XI.

  • Log Impedance Scale: A new user setting allows easy switching between linear and logarithmic
    impedance scales. Often it is convenient to view impedance on a log scale because the impedance of a
    pure capacitor or inductor becomes a straight line and any non-linearity is seen at a glance. The new log
    impedance scale has adjustments for both upper and lower impedance plot limits.
    Significant Digits Displayed: A new preference allows the user to set the number of significant digits that will be displayed.

  • Greatly Expanded User's Guide: New Tech Notes have been added covering Speaker Parameter Measurement, Inductance Modeling and Capacitor Measurement. Several relevant excerpts from Introduction to Loudspeaker Design 2nd Edition have been added.
