****** Page 2 ****** Reliable • Exceptional •Performance PRODUCT DESCRIPTION The ADA206XLR, ADA208XLR and ADA412XLR Analog Audio Distribution Amplifiers provide two (206) or four (412) IX3 distribution amplifier channels, and two (208) lx4 distribution amplifier channels, with balanced inputs and outputs. A master, gain adjustment for each channel controls all three outputs together to adjust for varying inputs, while individual trimmers for each output allow adjustment over a 20dB range to accommodate 10dbu semi-pro up to +8dBm line levels. Another of the ADA206XLR, ADA208XLR and ADA412XLR Distribution Amplifiers many claims to fame is the use of XLR type input and output connectors. XLRs are easy to use but make paralleling inputs for IX6 or IX12 operation difficult. An LF347N quad bi-fet opamp forms the three variable gain output adjustment stages. These variable gain stages use a unique circuit arrangement that allows us to provide a smooth, logarithmic gain control for each output using an inexpensive (but good) linear cermet potentiometer. Since we actually reduce the stage gain for low outputs rather than taking the more conventional approach of reducing the input level to a fixed gain amplifier, you can use the ADA at low output levels with very little noise penalty. You can use the ADA to match consolemedium level inputs (-20dBu) or to drive semi-pro IHF inputs without requiring outboard attenuator pads. SSM2142 active balanced output drivers sense the voltage on their high and low output lines and will shut off drive to a grounded output line while doubling the drive on the other. This capability allows you to connect the outputs to balanced or unbalanced loads without regard to whether or which side of the output is grounded. Maximum output at clipping is +22dBm into balanced loads; however, even though the gain is the same under either condition, clipping output is reduced by 6dB when driving an unbalanced load since the full output swing capability of only one driver of the two is available. The ADA family operates from a 15W — 24VDC single output switching supply featuring universal AC input. Operating in the range of 85 — 264 VAC / 120 —L 370 VDC, it offers low ripple and noise at a max 150mV peak to peak. DaySequerra | 7209 Browing Road I Pennsauken, NJ 08109 | I

****** Page 3 ****** Reliable • Exceptional •Performance INSTALLATION The ADA is designed for rack mounting on standard ElA 1-3/4 inch centers. Each unit dissipates approximately 10 watts and is designed for use in an office environment. Avoid excessive heat buildup (such as might be due to nearby power amplifiers in unventilated racks) to ensure maximum component life. AUDIO CONNECTIONS XLR inputs and outputs are wired with pins 2 as HI and pins 3 as LOW. Pin 1 (shield) of all input and output connectors are permanently grounded in accordance with current AES recommendations. The pin 1 grounds are routed via a large, low impedance ground path directly to the chassis separately from any audio ground paths. Internal circuit ground is also connected to the chassis for shielding through an independent path. AC ground (green wire) is also separately grounded to the chassis. Active balanced outputs require a reference ground connection to the receiving device for proper operation. This ground is carried through pin 1 If the pin 1 shield ground is not carried through to the receiving device, the AC ground, rack frame, or studio ground system may complete this ground. Noisy grounds require excellent common mode rejection in the receiving device for quiet system operation. We have taken measures to keep RFI out of your ADA, including split and bypassed input networks, beaded, bypassed and isolated power inputs, nonconcentric wound, semi-toroidal power transformers, double ground plane PC boards and a nice enclosure to keep rain and snow off the circuit boards. However, in difficult broadcast applications, the RF shielding and suppression system can be no better than the ground system into which it is trying to dump the unwanted RF. For optimal product performance, be sure to have a good grounding system. ADJUSTMENTS The Master and individual Output level controls should all be set close to 2 0’clock to provide nominal +4dBm outputs for a nominal +4dBu input. These settings allow +6/-16dB output adjustment range around nominal, which will allow outputs of +10 to -12dBm to be set. In addition, the Master gain has +1 OdB to OFF adjustment range to compensate for input level variations from -6dBu to input clipping at +24dBu.
