Product Details

Dayton Audio DTA-1 Class T Digital 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.

Dayton Audio DTA-1 Class T Digital AC/DC Battery Powered Mini Amplifier 15 WPC
Dayton Audio DTA-1 Class T Digital AC/DC Mini Amplifier 15 WPC is rated 4.25 out of 5 by 108.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good things come in small packages!I bought this amp almost 2 years ago and has provided some serious bang for your buck! After going through countless cheap, horrible sounding, clunky stereo cd receivers working in our Chick-fil-a's kitchen I decided to wire up some decent speakers and tuck away this amp, its so compact the whole system stayed out of the way of everything and sounded pretty good, considering the speaker placement and acoustics of the kitchen. I was worried it might not have enough power to really be heard in a loud kitchen but buy was I wrong! this little amp has plenty of power, without a lot of distortion at that. This little guy got us in trouble plenty of times because it could be easily heard through the whole store at only half volume.Fast forward year later I left Chick-fil-a and the amp got little to no use after I left so I switched it out for a clunky junker and after a deep cleaning shes running desk duty with 2 great infinity speakers and sounds better than any other receiver I own. So far she hasn't died, and hasn't been able to be replaced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Basic Two Speaker AmpUsed With Batteries or Provided Power Cord This Little Amp Does The Job.I used it to run a set of speakers mounted on stands next to my bed. The TV is mount on the wall on the other side of the room and I did not want to turn the TV all the way up so I could hear it. The little blue LED does not cause an issue with viewing the TV at night, if it did a little black marker would do the trick.

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.

Looking for a test amplifier for the CBT36 build. Would this amplifier be acceptable to use for this purpose. I didn't want to pay the bucks for the recommended test amplifier (DTA-100a), since I would have little use for it after completing the project.

Asked by: TomE
I don't see why this would not work for testing purposes in place of the dta 100. It should work fine in that application.
