Product Details

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.

Specifications: • Power output: 2 x 15W RMS into 4 ohms, 1 x 30W into 8 ohms • Efficiency: 92% • Total harmonic distortion: 0.015% 20-20,000 Hz • Bass/treble turnover: 100 Hz/10,000 Hz • Input impedance: 100k ohms • Auto-on sensitivity: <0.8V • Stand-by current consumption: 0.6 mA • Power supply: 24 VDC, 2000 mA • Dimensions (H x W x D): 1-5/8" x 4-7/16" x 5-1/2".

Dayton Audio DA30 2 x 15W Class D Bridgeable Mini Amplifier
Dayton Audio DA30 2 x 15W Class D Bridgeable Mini Amplifier is rated 4.6667 out of 5 by 12.
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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice little ampI'm using this to drive a couple of speakers for my desktop PC and as a makeshift speakerphone amp. Works pretty well for what I need. Wish the LEDs were a little less bright and that both the RCA and 3.5mm could be used at the same time. If the 3.5mm wire is plugged in the RCA jacks are disabled. Other than that all is well. Time will tell on durability.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Switch from stereo to bridgeSwitch from stereo to mono bridge was installed backwards. When on stereo it's mono and bridge it's stereo.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for the priceWe used this on a package we sold. It is a nice small unit yet powerful enough to run 2 speakers in a video conference room. The upper end of volume does seem to distort. maybe the power supply is not large enough.But in our case it did fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect ReplacementI bult a Heathkit AA-14 back in the 1960s. When the left channel went out this summer I thought it was time for a replacement, after 40-some years - imagine that! Saw Dayton Audio's DA-30 and was a bit skeptical - the speakers are in the family room and serve all sorts of decks and the TV. But skeptical I am no more! I know it's not handy to access the bass, treble and balance controls, but it's set so it sounds excellent and I shouldn't have to tweak these with the screwdriver. It runs the old Electro-Voice inefficient speakers with plenty of bass, good treble and the power response is smooth and could blow you out of the family room. Thanks for such a great product.

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

I just restored a 1956 Klipschorn.   I only have one so I need an amp that will bridge mono.  It appears this one will.   However, the ohm rating on the Klipschorn is 16.   Will this amp work with this load?

Asked by: iteched
This will certainly drive a 16 ohm load in bridged mono.

How would this amp work with Polk Audio R50s? Just want to add them to an old TV and like the idea of a small amp with auto on. 

Asked by: TXAG10
This amp will power them but the total output will be limited. If you keep the bass level down at higher volumes you will be better off. If you only need them at moderate levels it should be perfect.

Will this power a single 4" micro sub that is 4 ohm while in bridge mode?

Asked by: climatemaster15c
This amplifier is only rated to drive 8 ohm loads, when run in bridged mode.

Will this amp work and have usable output with 12VDC?

Asked by: Ajbastro
The specs call for a 24vdc power supply, so it's highly unlikely. Even if one could get any output from 12vdc, the probability of catastropic damage from under-powering should convince you not to try it.

Defeat Auto On feature

Is there a way to defeat the auto on feature? The reason is because if you are listening at a very low level so as not too disturb others the amp will "auto off" so to speak. The threshold for auto on/off for me is set too high. I am quite willing to dive into the circuit board and defeat it or change a resistor/capacitor value to change the threshold. Thanks.
Asked by: chasw98
We do not currently have any way to defeat the Auto on circuit on this amp.

Can this amp be used strictly in mono mode for a single monitor speaker?

I would like to upgrade the stage monitor speaker system in our church. The features of the Dayton DA-30 stereo amp seem suited for our needs (tone control and price). However, our available audio input signal is mono, not stereo. Can this amp. be connected in mono mode? If so, how is this accomplished and what parts are required?
Asked by: sdlony
You would have to adapt your signal cable to a 3.5mm male plug. Use a male plug, NEVER use a "Y" adapter on inputs; only outputs. BAD THINGS CAN HAPPEN IF YOU GET THIS WRONG.Having said that, I would question whether or not this is a good choice for your purpose. In a small, traditional church needing only a little vocal help, maybe. In anything else, ie. larger, needing instrument monitoring, Charismatic or other church engaging in lots of praise music, choral, instrumental presentations, 30 watts won't do anything but distort. In those applications I would recomend buying a power amp to match the rating of the monitor.This would have worked fine in the Presbyterian church in which I was raised, but they still don't have a pa. Too smallHope this helps.
