Distribution Amp (DA)
A Distribution Amp provides a means of routing a signal to many destinations, each with its own level control, overload indicator and mute switch. If you want to route a signal from one device’s output to multiple inputs you can simply connect many wires to the output node. Only when you need individual level control to each connected device is a Distribution Amp called for.
Controls the signal level into the Distribution Amplifier. Changing this control will affect the Input Meter.
Note: It is possible to create an overload condition within the distribution amplifier if this control is set above +0dB. Such an overload may be indicated at the Input Meter.
Shows the RMS signal level entering the distribution amplifier.
Allows control of the output level for each distribution channel.
Note: It is possible to create an overload condition at the output of the distribution amplifier if this control is set above +0dB. Such an overload will be indicated by the Output Overload indicator.
Lights whenever the distribution channel output attempts to exceed +35dB. This condition is only possible if the Output Level for the channel is set greater than +0dB.
Note: An overload which occurs within the distribution amplifier due to a greater than +0dB setting of the Input Level control will not be detected by the Output Overload indicators.
