The CT-DA10 may be used as either a 1x10, 1x8, or 1x5 output distribution amplifier (DA) in combination with a 2, 5 or 10 output DAR generator (limited to 10 outputs total). All outputs are re-clocked and locked to source. The DA outputs fallback to a tone and voice message on Loss-of-source. A Station ID may be programmed into the fallback signal for positive identification during setups. Outputs are always active. Dual redundant power supply for reliability.
The CT-DA10 generates a valid AES output on all outputs with or without a source or reference input. Without an available input, the DA outputs generate a 1KHz tone and voice channel ID. When connecting things up, source or no source, the outputs are live. and verifiable. Apply a valid source and the unit will phase lock to it and replicate it on the selected outputs with less than 100ns delay. The DAR selected outputs will be phase locked to the reference audio, in phase with the DA output signal.
Never be frustrated again by not knowing where the problem is, the Channel Talker DA10 will generate a tone and voice message indicating that there is no source material. A station ID message can be added to identify the source DA unit so that the receiving party can conclusively verify the source.
