Product Details

Dayton Audio DTA-1W Class T Wireless Mini Amplifier System

Dayton Audio cuts the cord holding your stereo system back with the DTA-1W wireless mini amplifier system. Built upon the tried-and-true Class T amplifier design found in the DTA-1, this system exhibits the same high-fidelity, tube-like audio quality that audiophiles have come to love while remaining compact.

True stereo sound is sent from the DTA-1T transmitter unit to the DTA-1AR amplifier/receiver via 2.4 GHz for up to 66 ft. (20 meter) of line-of-sight range while maintaining 20-20,000 Hz frequency response. Rear mounted spring-loaded terminals on the DTA-1AR make speaker connection quick and easy. Both the transmitter and amplifier/receiver can be optionally powered off 8 AA batteries each unit for true wireless operation. The DTA-1W's transmitter and receiver work together to turn virtually any speakers into a wireless speaker system.

Includes two 6" 3.5 mm coiled male-to-male cables for making connections to iPods, MP3 players, PCs, portable CD or DVD players, and smartphones. Two power supplies are included: a 12 VDC power supply for the DTA1-AR and a 9 VDC power supply for the DTA-1T.

Specifications: • Power output: 15 watts RMS x 2 (into 4 ohms) • Dynamic range: 90 dB • Sample rate: 44.1 kHz, 16-bit • Wireless range: Up to 66 ft. (20 meters) line-of-sight • Dimensions (same for DTA-1T transmitter and DTA-1AR amplifier/receiver): 2" H x 6-1/8" W x 3-3/4" D • Power requirements: DTA-1T transmitter: 9 VDC, 1A; DTA-1AR amplifier/receiver: 12 VDC, 2A; both power supplies are included.

Setting volume: Both the DTA-1T transmitter and the DTA-1AR amplifier/receiver feature volume controls for controlling volume remotely (at the transmitter) or locally (at the amplifier/receiver). To set the initial volume, it is best to turn the source device's volume up all the way, set the DTA-1T volume control to 3 o'clock, and set the DTA-1AR volume control to a position that provides the loudest sound that is free of distortion. This is the system maximum volume. System volume may now be set to your desired output using either the DTA-1T or DTA-1AR volume control.

Dayton Audio DTA-1W Class T Wireless Mini Amplifier System
Dayton Audio DTA-1W Class T Wireless Mini Amplifier System is rated 3.4762 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job...but not perfectlyI like this system but it does seem that the signal is easily interfered with by lots of other household appliances (Bluetooth, microwave, cordless phones) and the static is very annoying. I live in an apartment, so I have a lot of interference. When other things aren't creating this problem, the sound is crystal clear and the system work as advertised.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Performance for PriceAre you looking to extend music in your home or business to another room? These were the perfect solution for me. These have very good sound. Not audiophile quality or critical listening mind you, these are great for extending sound to all rooms of your home and but they sound GOOD.I think other reviews were overly harsh for what you are getting for the price here. These units are compact (one unit is about the length of my hand). They have performed flawlessly in my installation and i can listen to music throughout my house. Much less than paying for an installer to come in and run wiring throughout the home. I hope others enjoy them as much as I have. There is a separate volume control on the transmitter and receivers so you can 'dial in' the perfect sound level for each room.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from You get what you pay forMaybe I was expecting too much from this product so some of this might be my fault. I was trying to find an inexpensive way to add rear surrounds to my home theater set up. I was hoping that the wireless mini amp system would be my salvation. they are easy to hook up and are well built but unfortunately they are extremely weak and subject to interference. I have the setup direct line of sight and are only about 15feet from each other and still the interference is constant. I'm hoping that with summer right around the corner I can use them in the backyard, that's why I've decided not to return them

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Neat concept, average performance, poor physical constructionThe product works pretty well. The range is very limited as advertised so that wasn't a surprise but someone standing in between the transmitter and receiver can cause static which stinks during a party. The speaker terminals on the back of the receiver/amplifier may be the cheapest quality I have EVER seen. These connectors are spring loaded push style connectors (as seen in the picture) and of the the four, three fell apart during insertion of the speaker wires. I had to reinsert the push component and springs. All this said, this product is very inexpensive so it may still be worth it....

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Range extremely limitedBasically, the range of this system is so limited it's nearly useless. Clear line of sight and the system shows interference/static /disruption at 20'. The idea that you can create & feed separate "zones" with this short range is ludicrous. If the wireless function is going to be so weak, save some money, increase your sound quality and just get the DTA-1Pros: Compact, easy to install & set upCons: Horrible range, no tone control, no speaker outputs on transmitter (for sub perhaps,) poor sound quality when operating wirelessly

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what I wanted almost perfectlyI got these so that I could listen to radio in my exercise room. I live remotely and I already have enough coax for antenna connections strung through the walls, and the effort to run additional was more than I wanted to invest right now. This little system does the trick. I notice it's sensitve to the microwave running but so are most things that operate in this RF range. A little hiss is present but it does a reasonable job of reproducing high quality audio. I haven't tried the all battery option but I see some interesting uses for outdoor temporary audio using this system.

Dayton Audio DTA-1W Class T Wireless Mini Amplifier System

My wife and I both have a hearing problem. Our TV is appx. 20 feet from where we sit. We have the sound on our TV loud enough to annoy others in the house. Will this amplifier, put on a table next to us enable us to keep the sound down on the tv. ?

The description says "Perfect for outdoor use."  Is this thing weatherproof, or does that just mean it is easy to cart outside using battery power?

Asked by: DNAgent
Unfortunately these are no weatherproof, this simply means it would be easy to bring outside.

Can I use the DTA-1W with my Direct TV audio receiver audio output or to the TV audio output to power speakers ?

Asked by: richardoler
This can work with either one as long as it is a stereo analog output.

Is there any way to boost the rf range?

In my application, I have 3 receivers running from one central transmitter across multiple rooms. The reception is nearly perfect most of the time, but when there is constant activity and multiple people in the room, the signal gets very bad. My question is if there is any way to boost the signal without opening up the transmitter. If there is no simple add-on, is there any way to modify the inside for a stronger range?
Asked by: JoshMdy
Not in an easy way. They are what they are. Keep line of sight clear.

Recommended speakers

Could you use this with these speakers? see this amp is rated for 15 Watt RMS into 4-ohm. The speakers are rated 50 Watt 8ohm. I believe 8-ohm should be easier to drive so I think it should work well, but I wanted to ask.
Asked by: Sean3k
Those speakers will work very well with this amplifier. It is a popular combination.
