The GS-PASTE 201 is a line powered, heavy duty analogue telephone balancing unit. It allows professional audio equipment such as mixers, talkback systems or headphone circuits to be connected to a traditional analogue telephone line. 

A tone generator has been included to help with line balancing. Once a line is connected the tone can be switched on, so that the R and C can be balanced accordingly. Instructions for this are printed on the side of the unit. Once the best balance is achieved, the tone can be turned off.

A front panel LED indicates an incoming call. There is also an audible ringer which can be turned off if required.

This unit is in a 19 inch rack mount.
