The DPA616 is a professional sixteen channel power amplifier which is capable of delivering a power of 60 Watt to 4 Ohm loads connected to the 16 output channels. When used in bridge mode, it can deliver a power of 120 Watt to 8 Ohm loads connected to the 8 bridged outputs. This way, the DPA616 is the perfect solution for installed multi-zone audio distribution systems with 8 or 16 zones. This amplifier is designed as a no-nonsense amplifier with only the necessary controls and connections which creates great simplicity in use and installation. The input connections are all performed with 3-pin Terminal block connectors, allowing the connection of balanced input signals. Every channel is fitted with a separate gain control potentiometer and for every two input connectors, there is a stereo / bridge & parallel switch provided whereby two channels can be bridged or linked in parallel, avoiding a cable clutter when multiple channels should be fed with the same input signal. The output connections are performed with 4-pin Terminal block connectors allowing connections for separate or bridged output channels. A built-in multipurpose protection circuit protects against DC malfunction, short circuit, overheating, overload and limits the signal when necessary. This all is housed in a double rack space, steel 19” rack mount housing.
