DAD 5220

Dual AES Audio Distribution Amplifier


Digital Audio, Distribution



  • Dual mode operation 1>8 or dual 1>4
  • Signal presence detection
  • Supports sample rates between 32KHz and 108KHz (independent for each input channel)
  • Three connection panel options
  • Balanced AES3 or single ended AES3id connectivity
  • Fully isolated transformer coupled inputs and outputs
  • Remote control and status monitoring when used with the APPolo control system
  • Hot Swappable


Featuring dual mode operation the D AD 5220 is a flexible and cost effective solution for AES digital audio distribution. The D AD 5220 can be used as a single 1>8 amplifier or a dual channel 1>4 device. This module is ideally suited for the demanding requirements of broadcast and professional audio applications.

Each AES input can have independent sample rates ranging between 32KHz to 108KHz. Flexible back plane options allow for three connectivity choices, SubD or Weco for balanced AES3 signals and BNC for single ended AES3id signals. All inputs and outputs are isolated using transformers.

Microprocessor control and on board flash ram enable configurations and settings to be stored within the module (through power cycles and module removal). Local control capability is provided via the integrated dip switch. Remote control, status monitoring and error reporting is possible when using the APPolo control system.
