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 3.45 out of 5 by 20.
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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lousy Wireless PerformanceUsing the DTA-1 amp wired works great. Good, clear sound. Don't expect much volume at 15 watt/channel. Forget the wireless, very poor performance. For me, static at 10 feet with direct line of sight. I had purchased this unit to use at a wedding so I could control the music remotely. Had to run a long 3.5mm cable and direct input into the amp instead. The sound quality via wireless was unacceptable.

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

Is there any time lag when sending and receiving audio?

if im using this for wireless rear speakers will there be a delay?
Asked by: Masa1
No - nothing you will ever notice. The delay is probably 1000 times less that the time it takes the sound to travel from your front speakers to your ears. A delay IN THEORY can be measured with expensive test gear...but no human can detect it.

Power Supply?

What sort of power do these units use?Wall warts? Can they run on batteries? Car DC cord?What's included in the box?Thanks.
Asked by: AJax
A 9 VDC, 1A power supply is included for the DTA-1T transmitter and a 12 VDC, 2A power supply is included for the DTA-1AR amplifier/receiver. Additionally, each unit may be powered off of 8 AA batteries.Powering the system by using two Car DC power cords (one for the DTA-1T and one for the DTA-1AR), should be no problem.

Can I connect the transmitter to my computer or home receiver output instead of an ipod?

no details
Asked by:
The transmitter (DTA-1T) and the receiver/amplifier (DTA-1AR) of the DTA-1W system can be connected to nearly anything with an analog audio output.

Does the reciever have a 3.5mm OUTPUT?

Does the reciever have LINE LEVEL 3.5mm and/or RCA outputs? This would be great for using powered speakers remotely when you don't require an amplifier.
Asked by: Johnny V
Nope, the receiver only has speaker level outputs and a line level input.

Will it conflict with a 2.4 GHz wireless router?

Asked by: Gregg
The DTA-1W system will not interfere with the operation of wireless routers, cell phones, or cordless phones.

"line of sight" range, does this mean i can't put the receiver or sender unit in an enclosed cabinet or another room?

Asked by: Winterboy040404
Line-of-sight, with regards to wireless devices, is used to indicate maximum range. Placing the transmitter or amplifier/receiver in another room, or cabinet, will reduce the range somewhat (as it would with any wireless device), but the system should still be usable.
