Product Details

Dayton Audio DTA-1 Class T AC/DC Battery Powered Mini Amplifier 15 WPC

Don't let the compact size fool you—Dayton Audio's DTA-1 mini amplifier is a serious piece of audio gear. A proprietary Class-T amplifier chip enables the DTA-1 to be 88% efficient while still producing pristine, high-resolution output. This makes the DTA-1 T-Amp an obvious choice for powering high efficiency single driver speakers. Up to 15 watts of power per channel is on tap to drive desktop and bookshelf speakers, for the ultimate portable hi-fi setup at home or in your office.

The Dayton Audio DTA-1 T-Amp can run off of 8 AA batteries for total portability, or the included switching power supply (with quick-release US and European style plugs) for stationary use. A rear mounted 3.5 mm stereo (1/8") audio input is provided. The amplifier also includes a 6" long, coiled male-to-male 3.5 mm cable for making connections to iPods, MP3 players, PCs, and portable CD or DVD players. Spring-loaded push terminals are incorporated for quick speaker wire termination. Intelligent short-circuit and over-temperature protection ensure amplifier longevity. The Dayton Audio DTA-1 is the perfect replacement for the now unavailable Sonic Impact 5066 NIB class T amplifier. Dayton Audio has taken the technology developed for the Sonic Impact 5066 and perfected it in this hand-held digital amplifier.

Specifications: • Power output: 2 x 15 watts RMS (into 4 ohms @ 10% THD), 2 x 10 watts RMS (into 4 ohms @ 0.1% THD) • Efficiency: Greater than 88% • Dynamic range: 102 dB • Dimensions: 2" H x 6-1/8" W x 3-3/4" D

Dayton Audio DTA-1 Class T AC/DC Battery Powered Mini Amplifier 15 WPC
Dayton Audio DTA-1 Class T Digital AC/DC Mini Amplifier 15 WPC is rated 4.2636 out of 5 by 110.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Big Fan of this Little Amp!I bought one of these 5 years ago. I was not expecting much, just something fun to play with. What I found out was that these amps can produce amazing sound when hooked up to a decent speaker. Even hooked up to just an average speaker the results are shocking. The sound field, separation and clarity these small little amps can achieve was a total shock to me. I have good quality amps and speakers in my life, but this little amp was like listening to my music in a whole new way. Just take a couple of bookshelf speakers and place them on a table about 4 feet apart a couple of feet away in front of you. Hook up the amp and your iPod and go though your favorite songs. This amp hooked up to two of my M&K THX 150's sitting on a table in front of me has provided some of the most enjoyable listening experiences I have ever experienced. I only use the battery power if I am taking the amp someplace I cannot plug it in. For the best sound and bass, plug it in. If you hook up this amp to a pair of reasonably efficient tower speakers, you will have plenty of bass. It will not shake the room, but is satisfying. You will get more bass after the unit has been on for about 15 minutes. My T-amp has been on almost continuously for the entire time I have owned it. I use it hooked up to a computer most of the time and I never turn it off when I shut the computer down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean lines and solid feelI bought this to power a couple of project speakers. I usually buy it naked and do my own thing but this time I wanted one that I could switch speakers occasionally. My favorite feature has to be the switching power supply. As long as the cord is pluged in it will not allow the battery juice to be used. As soon as the cord is removed the batteries kick in. Easy, ergonomic volume control that even my daughter with cerebral palsy is easily capable of using. Nice solid weight doesn't feel like it will slide all over the place. Like some of the other brands. Well done Dayton.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from minimalist excellenceI bought this for my computer after reading reviews online. I am really happy with it and consider myself to be a bit of an audiophile. Turning it up on max is distortion free. Sound is crystal clear. It is ideally suited for a computer or mp3 player. I must say I really love it and I am not easy to please! The only downside is a hum if disconnected from an input device but why would you have the thing on if it is not connected to music?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dayton Audio DTA-1I bought two Dayton Audio DTA-1s one for to power my wife"s computer speakers. The other I bought for myself out of curiosity. The amp in our TV room went down so I plugged in the Dayton Audio DTA-1 in its place. I'm running the little amp in a 2.1 configuration through a M&K Sub and a pair of Speakerlab Point Ones (0.1) 11"H x 7"W x 7"D and I don't know if I should be amused or impressed, actually both. The stereo separation is good and the over all sound quality excellent. Though the sound is not quite up to the NAD amp that the DTA-1 is replacing, it's far better than a sharp stick in the eye.I have not used the DTA-1 with batteries mainly because I'm to cheap to buy them. At about $30 THE dta-1 is a bargain, I would recommend this product. In my humbleopinion I think everyone should buy one if only to wow your audiophile friends.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost 5 starsI bought this little amp after seeing a friends and I was very impressed with the sound and battery life. When I received mine there was an issue with the power supply being a loose fit, but I had a power supply from an old set of PC speakers that worked fine.This amp is very good for the price, especially paired with the Dayton bookshelf speakers. The amp survived many camping trips, backyard parties, and park outings before it let the smoke out at a tailgating party. Until it died after about 2 years of use/abuse it got lots of compliments. I had a pro audio guy at a birthday party ( he does line arrays for churches and stadiums) completely blown away by the sound this thing put out and he started lamenting about the old days of stereo racks and such.Battery life is VERY GOODSound is very good and will drive Dayton B652 speakers pretty well, don't expect lots of bass, but they do sound nice and carry more than enough sound for cocktail type gatherings.I will definitely buy another one.

I currently have this hooked up to 2 Pioneer SP-BS22-LR book shelf speakers 6 ohms. I was considering getting a powered sub and the one I am looking at has speaker level inputs and outputs. If I was to buy that would I still use this amp for my speakers?

Asked by: Berg
You could use The DTA-1 amp for the satellites or use the High Pass filter through the sub amp to power the external speakers. Both methods will work.
