Dayton Audio DA30 2 x 15W Class D Bridgeable Mini Amplifier

Dayton Audio's DA30 is the ideal amplifier for commercial audio installations such as classrooms or offices, where a small, low wattage power amp is required. This palm-sized Class D amplifier sits inconspicuously on a desktop, and can also be installed on walls or under cabinets by using the included brackets. Perfect for powering ancillary zones in large setups, or mounted on or near a video projector!

The DA30 delivers 15 watts per channel in stereo mode and 30 watts when bridged mono. Two stereo audio inputs increase versatility: dual RCA or a single 3.5 mm TRS jack. Separate treble and bass controls allow the sound to be tailored to the room. The DA30's auto-on feature increases energy efficiency. An all-metal chassis and the selection of high-spec internal components ensure reliable operation and a long service life.

Dayton Audio DA30 2 x 15W Class D Bridgeable Mini Amplifier
Dayton Audio DA30 2 x 15W Class D Bridgeable Mini Amplifier is rated 4.5625 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Small AmpI wanted to have a nice portable audio system but portable speakers have poor sound quality or cost hundreds of dollars. Even the Bose Soundlink mini has big flaws in its audio. Also if they break you have to pay hundreds more to replace the whole thing. I wanted to instead use a single bookshelf speaker with an amplifier and Bluetooth receiver.GOOD: This amplifier is one of few that can be bridged which is great for a mono setup. Its very powerful for its size and does not distort. Also the tone controls work great. The amp is very small and light which is good for portability. It comes with mounting brackets.BAD: It has a goofy wire plug that requires the wire to be screwed into with a small screwdriver which is a pain. Also don't throw that tiny screw driver away because its about the only way you can adjust the tones and balance. Its annoying and its not tamper proof, it is Dayton Audio reducing costs. I plan on somehow replacing or modifying those controls so I don't need to carry a screwdriver around with me.CONCLUSION: Its the only amp that can be bridged and it is powerful enough. Buy it if you need a small amp and want tone controls that work well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mighty Midget!I needed a compact amp for an outdoor patio application. Signals are coming from an Apple Airport Express fed from my iTunes library. All my music is in Apple Lossless format and I am very particular about low distortion across the audio spectrum. My need calls for clean but not loud sound (neighbors!).Originally I bought Dayton's 60w/channel class T amp. which was a resounding disappointment (see my review). I asked PE to take it back, which they did without hesitation, via prepaid return shipping and a full credit. Thanks PE, no one can beat that for service.This 15w/channel mini class D amp, is more compact and leaves the 60w/channel class T in the dust in terms of sound quality and power. It works perfectly, and can play to very loud levels (not that I need that) without any noticeable distortion. It operates smoothly and cleanly across the full audio spectrum, with a wide range of program material and volume levels. This amp is solidly made and performs to a high standard. The moniker "Mighty Midget" seems totally appropriate.An added bonus is the tone controls, which can only be set with a screwdriver and so are not prone to tampering by kids, etc. Tone controls may be unique to this product in this class of compact amps. As it happens, I have found a little treble lift is quite beneficial in my setup, which will usually be played at quite a low volume setting.Based on my experience, I fully recommend this product. If you are even considering the 60w/channel class T, I'd say don't: Get this class D instead. You'll be glad you did.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from it sounds OK when soundsI bought this amp a month ago. Trying to use it in HF path of active speakers with BG Neo 3PDR (4 om, 90 db)as tweeter - it constantly goes auto-off if HF path runs less then 2 watts of power.I think this auto-off feature is a big design flaw. The funny thing is that the unit stays hot - not cool even if it was auto-off for a few hours. Seems like no other green feature except for the turning the output off and the red light going on, the unit stays internaly powered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little ampAfter looking at various small amplifiers, I settled on this one to improve the sound from our LCD TV. Paired with some good small speakers it does the job nicely. One of the features I needed was auto-on. This seems to be a hit or miss proposition on a lot of amplifiers but it works perfectly on this little amp.The other reason I selected this amp is the power rating, which I believe to be accurate at 15 WPC @ 4 Ohms, WITH LOW DISTORTION. Just for fun I ordered a Lepai 2020A+ to do some comparison. I used them both in a variety of setups. The Dayton DA30 is clearly in a totally different class. While the Lepai advertises a "clean 20WPC" it is QUICKLY left in the dust by the DA30. And, that's really to be expected given the price difference. The Lepai amp has a lot of features and does a good job for the price. Just don't be fooled into thinking it's anywhere near the DA30 in power and performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bid sound from a small packageI needed a small amp to take on recording gigs that I could play back audio. I hooked this little gem up to some 2-way speakers with 4" woofers. It blew me out of the room it was so loud. I heard no distortion until I turned it up to about 9, but it may have been my ears distorting because it was so loud. Sound was accurate enough to check a recording. Bass and treble controls are helpful. One tip, you must use smaller speaker cable like zip cord instead of the heavy gauge stuff I usually use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice unitNice little unit. great sound for such a small package. The auto-on feature is the best part. I am using it to enhance the sound of a bedroom television with a couple of small Sony bookshelf speakers. Now I can set the sleep timer and not have the amp running all night.

Dayton Audio DA30 2 x 15W Class D Bridgeable Mini Amplifier

when operating in bridged mode, does this amp take both the left and right stereo input channels and combine them to a mono signal?

Will this amp auto-switch between inputs if both the RCA input and the 3.5mm input are both plugged in at the same time?  Obviously I won't be sending an audio signal to both inputs at once but I'd like to switch between 2 different sources if possible.

Asked by: mac clinic
This uses a switched 3.5mm input, so once a 3.5mm plug is connected the RCA inputs will be automatically over ridden.

If I use this for TV sound via headphone out jack which input would be better?  Headphone to RCA in via splitter or headphone to TRS IN?

Asked by: jaxtitleman
Both inputs will do the same thing and will not matter which you choose.

I'd like to purchase two of these units for use in a stereo wireless Bluetooth system. Can you recommend a Bluetooth receiver for each unit? Also, how do you set up the Bluetooth receivers to tell them which channel they are, that is LEFT or RIGHT

Asked by: ClassD Man
You would only need one Bluetooth receiver for both amps, you will just split the output from the receiver and send one channel into each amplifier. Our Saturn receiver is a nice small unit.
