Product Details

Dayton Audio MA1260 Multi-Zone 12 Channel Amplifier 60WPC

The Dayton Audio MA1260 freestanding, 12-channel amplifier was created for custom multi-room sound distribution. Its intelligently engineered and versatile design integrates easily into high-end whole house audio systems. An efficient Class D output stage delivers superior audiophile sound quality and performance. The MA1260 can be stacked with other audio components, and includes removable ears for mounting in standard audio racks (2RU).

Two common or BUS inputs feed audio signals from standard line-level audio sources to any or all channels. Each of the twelve channels has its own dedicated input and independent level adjustment to provide further flexibility. By simply flipping a single switch, two channels can be bridged to increase the total power output for that zone. This is helpful when extra power is needed in certain areas or zones. Manual, automatic on/off, or triggered 12V input turn-on modes facilitate easy integration into automated systems. For quick and easy troubleshooting of the system, each pair of channels or zones has a bi-color LED to indicate its operational status.

Specifications • Rated power output per channel: 65 watts RMS into 4 ohms • Bridged output: 130 watts into 8 ohms • THD (20 Hz-20 kHz): 0.032% @ 65W (4 ohm stereo); 0.080% @ 130W (8 ohm bridged) • Circuit topology: Class D • Signal to noise ratio: 100 dB A-weighted • Efficiency: 93% • Frequency response: 7.5 Hz to 48 kHz • Dimensions: 16.7" W x 4" H x 14.25" D (tabletop configuration) • Power requirements: 115/230 VAC, 50/60 Hz • Stand-by power rating: 115V 0.46W.

Dayton Audio MA1260 Multi-Zone 12 Channel Amplifier 60WPC
Dayton Audio MA1260 Multi-Zone 12 Channel Amplifier 60WPC is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a bit more power!The previous version of this amp was a bit underpowered for many of the applications I used it for, but the extra 50% boost in power has really made an impact. Very impressed for the price!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Things to be aware ofI just received this amplifier. Unfortunately, I could not immediately install it, because the two input buses limit the components you can utilize. On an expensive amplifier I think I should be able to expect 5 or 6 input buses. I need input for a phonograph; CD player; tape player; tuner; and IPOD. So I had to go out and buy an audio source input selector box. Just another expense to add to the $600 amplifier. In addition, all my previous amplifiers have A/B connections for the speakers, where I can play only A speakers or B speakers or both A/B speakers. This amplifier offers only connections for one pair of speakers per zone, unless you parallel wire them. If you parallel wire them, you will need a wall volume control, because the two pair of speakers will play at the same volume and/or you cannot shut down one pair while playing the other pair within the zone. Therefore, I was forced to go out and buy another box. This time a speaker selector box was added, which allows me to shut down individual pairs of speakers within a given zone when I have 2 pairs of speakers in that zone. Again, I would expect A/B connectors on a $600 amplifier. Once I get all these extra devices wired, I will offer a review of the playablility of this amplifier.

What is the maximum size speaker cable that will work with the supplied phoenix connectors?

Asked by: RichS
16 AWG is the largest size I would recommend. Larger sizes may not fit, but are not really necessary for this type of application.

With this item am I also able to switch off one or more zones while other continue to play?

Asked by: Jedd
The individual zones cannot be switched off, but you could change the input to individual zones on the back of the unit to prevent them from playing from a specific input.

I see "lines in" for each zone. I would like to know if I need six lines in or a line for each zone or can I have one line in and output to the six zones?

Asked by: Jedd
This amplifier has Bus inputs which feed all 6 zones, or individual line inputs for each zone. If you want to plug in one source to feed all 6 zones you will use one of the bus inputs, and have all the zones switched to that input.

The specs say 60 watts per channel, so is this 60 watts to each speaker?  Thus 12 x 60 = 720 watts total power output?

Asked by: faganm24
Yes, this will produce 65 watts RMS into a 4 ohm load on each channel.

If I bridge it to six channels and max it out what will I get for watts with all channels driven. Looks like a good deal any way you slice it

Asked by: 0129
The output with each pair bridged would be 130 watts into 8 ohms. I do not recommend setting gains to max on this amplifier.

I have 6 pr 8 ohm 8"  ceiling spkrs, 2 pr outdoor 4 ohm 6" spkrs and 2 pr outdoor rock spkrs at 8 ohm . Each pr has imped matching vol. controls . Do I need 2 MA 1260 amps and connect them with amp1 bus out to amp2 bus in? Do I bridge the 4ohm ?
