****** Page 5 ****** Introduction 6-ChanneI stereo preamplifiers The PREIxx series are simple but versatile preamplifiers, offering a multifunctional solution for installations where multiple voice and music sources need to be mixed to one or two (only PRE126) output zones. The stereo design with six inputs allows connecting any type of audio source such as microphones, portable devices with Bluetooth and various balanced or unbalanced line level audio sources. Channels one and two are balanced inputs, allowing connection of microphone and line level audio sources. They feature 3—band tone control, phantom power and talk over for priority announcements. The other inputs are one balanced and three unbalanced stereo line inputs allowing connection of any line level audio sources. An integrated Bluetooth receiver and a front panel 3.5mm jack offers convenient wired or wireless connection possibilities for mobile and portable devices including laptops, smartphones and tablets. A master volume control for the output(s) including 2—band tone control and LED VU bar is located on the front panel, also accommodating each inputs mixing dial. On the back of the preamplifier is a priority mute contact that suppresses all (non—priority) music sources in case of contact closure, allowing linking autonomous alarm systems. 5

CAUTION The symbols shown are internationally recognized symbols that warn about potentional hazards of electrical products. The lightning flash with arrowpoint in an equilateral triangle means that the unit contains dangerous voltages. The exclamation point in an equilateral triangle indicates that it is necessary for the user to refer to the users manual. CAUTION RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK DO NOT OPEN These symbols warn that there are no user serviceable parts inside the unit. Do not open the unit. Do not attempt to service the unit yourself. Refer all servicing to qualified personnel. Opening the chassis for any reason will void the manufacturer’s warranty. Do not get the unit wet.

Each input control is provided with a clip indicator LED which illuminates when the maximum level (clipping) is almost reached. To ensure the best signal—to—noise ratio, illumination of this indicator should only occur at peak levels. When it illuminates frequently, the channel will be overdriven and a distorted ‘clipping’ sound will occur. Signal routing selection buttons (only PRE126): The signal routing buttons located on the right side of each input mixing control (indicated with ‘Zl’ and ‘Z2’) are used for selection for routing each input to one or both output channels (only PRE126). Press this button to enable the input routing to the corresponding output. The corresponding routing indicator LED illuminates when routed. Bluetooth (CH3): The integrated Bluetooth receiver is mixed with channel 3, and contains a pairing button besides the input mixing control. This allows connection of the pre—amplifier with any supporting audio source device such as smartphone or tablet. The LED positioned on top of this button indicates the current operation mode. When non illuminating, the device cannot be discovered by (new) Bluetooth devices. When blinking, the device is not connected but can be discovered by Bluetooth devices, and when illuminated it is connected and doesn’t allow pairing with another device. When pairing with your device for the first time, the ‘PAIR’ button should be pressed and the LED will start blinking for about 2 minutes. During this period, the device can be discovered and is indicated as Bluetooth ID ‘AUDAC PRE series’. When both devices have been paired before, the transmitter will be recognized by the receiver and it will allow continuous pairing without pressing the ‘PAIR’ button. 10

****** Page 11 ****** 3.5 mm Jack input (CH4): A 3.5 mm jack input connection is provided on the front panel of the unit besides the channel 4 mixing control. This input is an unbalanced stereo line input, mixed with the rear panel input of channel 4. Any portable device (such as laptop, smartphone or tablet) with 3.5 mm jack audio output can be connected to this easy accessible input. Output master control: Each output section (only one for PREI 16) contains a master volume control, two band tone control and 6-segment VU LED bar. The master volume control allows regulation of the overall output level, while two—band tone control allows bass / treble adjustment within a range of ± 15 dB and the VU LED bar indicates of the overall output level. Power switch: Allows to power the system ON and OFF. The blue indicator LED illuminates when switched on. Rear panel overview OUT Mlc 2 MIC 2 rÅLxt$/E• 0 01 0 Rear panel description AC Power inlet with fuse: The mains power supply (100—240V AC 50/60 Hz) has to be applied to this AC power inlet. The connection is made by an IEC C14 power connector and is fitted with a fuse. When replacing the fuse, make sure that the value of the replacement fuse matches the value of the original fuse. (T500mAL/250V) Balanced stereo line output: The balanced stereo line output(s) is implemented using two 3—pin terminal block output connectors. The audio signal available on these connectors allows it to be fed to any amplifier. A mode switch allows to convert the output between stereo and mono. In mono mode, a summed mono signal will be available on both left & right outputs, allowing the signal be fed to mono systems such as 100V PA systems. 11

****** Page 12 ****** Priority mute contact: A priority mute contact is provided with each output, allowing to completely mute the music at presence of a contact closure between both terminals. This contact is convenient for situations where a separate emergency system is installed and complete background music muting is required at occasion of a (fire) alarm. The emergency system contact outputs can be connected to this contact input. Bluetooth antenna connection: The included Bluetooth antenna should be connected to this terminal for good signal reception. It is connected using an SMA type connector and allows antenna extension (with an optional extension cable) for mounting outside of closed rack cabinets. Unbalanced stereo line inputs: Unbalanced line level input sources (e.g. media-players, radio tuners, …) can be connected to line inputs channel 2 to channel 4. These standard line inputs are implemented using RCA connectors and fitted with a gain control potentiometer whereby the input sensitivity can be controlled within a range of +4 dB -20 dB. NOTE The gain control potentiometers for channel 3 (mixed with Bluetooth receiver) and channel 4 (mixed with front 3.5 mm jack input) are also affecting the level for these secondary inputs. Balanced stereo line input: Balanced line level audio sources can be connected to channel 1 which is implemented using 2 x XLR connectors. It is fitted with a gain control potentiometer whereby the input sensitivity can be adjusted within a range of +4 dB —20 dB. A mode switch allows to switch the input between mono and stereo mode and mixes both channels when switched to mono, making them identically available on both output channels. Balanced microphone inputs: Balanced mono sources (e.g. microphones) can be connected to inputs mic 1 and mic 2 which are implemented using XLR connectors. They are fitted with a gain control potentiometer whereby the sensitivity can be adjusted within a range of —6 dB -50 dB. These inputs are fitted with a three—band tone control, allowing signal equalization within a range of ± 15 dB. A phantom power switch enables 15 Volts phantom power supply for powering condenser microphones and a talk over switch suppresses (-24 dB) all other audio sources in that zone. 12
