Safety instructions
When using this electronic device, basic precautions
should always be taken, including the following:
7 The power supply should be undamaged and never share an outlet
or extension cord with other devices. Never leave device plugged
into the outlet when it is not being used for a long period of time.
8 Care should be taken that objects do not fall into liquids and liquids
would not be spilled on the device.
1 Read all instructions before using the product.
2 Do not use this product near water (e.g., near a bathtub, washbowl,
kitchen sink, in a wet basement or near a swimming pool etc).
3 Use this device when you are sure that amplifier has
a stable base and it is fixed securely.
4
This product, in combination with loudspeakers may be
capable of producing sound levels that could cause permanent hearing loss. Do not operate for a long period of time at a high volume level or at
a level that is uncomfortable. If you experience any hearing loss or ringing in the ears, you should consult with otorhinolaryngologists.
9 The product should be serviced by qualified service personnel if:
– The power supply or the plug has been damaged.
– Objects have fallen into or liquid has been spilled on the product.
– The product has been exposed to rain.
– The product has been dropped or the enclosure damaged.
10 There are some areas with high voltage inside, to reduce the risk of electric shock do not remove cover of the amplifier. The cover should be removed by the qualified personnel only.
5 The product should be located away from heat sources such as radiators, heat vents, or other devices that produce heat.
6 The product should be connected to a power supply that is described
in the operating instructions or are marked on the product.

Before you start
MA 21 two zone mixing amplifiers for commercial and industrial applications. Possibility to plug in two zone
paging microphone or set microphone input to selected zone by using logic inputs in 5 pin XLR conector.
Low impedance speaker lines designed in paralel to 100 V outputs. Line input selector for each zone allows to
broadcast different background music into zones.
Amplifier is ideal for two zone application, but can be used in stereo background music system as well.

Operation
Function description of MA 21 amplifier
MIC INPUT LEVEL CONTROL
These rotary knobs are designed for adjusting volume level of the 3 pin and 5 pin
XLR inputs. First three inputs can be used for microphone level audio only.
LINE INPUT SELECTOR
This knob allows to select and broadcast to zone one of three audio source connected to line level RCA inputs. Individually for both zones input selector gives a
opportunity to broadcast different background music to different zones.
LINE INPUT LEVEL CONTROL
These two knobs designed for adjusting volume level of line audio input.
TONE CONTROL
The separate tone controls provide attenuation of bass and treble response. The
flat position is obtained when the knobs are set to middle position. Turn bass
control knob (BASS) and treble tone control knob (TREBLE) clockwise to raise
tone level by approximately +10 dB; turn counterclockwise to lower tone level by
approximately -10 dB.

MASTER LEVEL CONTROL
This potentiometer is designed to adjust audio level in the main output.
OUTPUT LEVEL INDICATOR
These two led bars indicates output signal amplitude of both zones. If the red led indicator starts lighting continuously please decrease the sound volume by using master
control, because red led bar indicates too high signal level. First led in led bar is main
power indicator.
POWER SWITCH
Use this switch to power on or off the amplifier. Green led in the front panel led
bar lights up if the amplifier is powered.
MAIN POWER CONNECTOR AND FUSE
Power connector is designed for main powers connecting to amplifier. This connector is combined with fuse holder and 4A 250V fuse.
MAIN VOLTAGE SELECTOR
Allows to select main power voltage. Set the proper voltage before the first time
turning on amplifier according to your area: ~115 V (60 Hz) or 230 V (50 Hz).
Operation
Function description of MA 21 amplifier
100V OUTPUT
Output terminal is designed to connect speaker line to amplifier. There are available two types of output: low impedance 8 Ω and 100 V outputs for constant voltage audio line. Each of the amplifier zones can run only one output configuration
at the same time. Operating amplifier using 8 Ω and 100 volt concurrently may
cause damage to the amplifier or connected speakers.
LOW IMPEDANCE OUTPUT
Output designed for 8 Ω loudspeakers. Operating amplifier using 8 Ω and 100
volt concurrently may cause damage to the amplifier or connected speakers.

external devices as well.
Application and circuit diagram:
Microphone is muted in both zones
PREAMP OUTPUTS
This is line level RCA output to connect audio recording equipment or any other
purpose. Subwoofer out and record out are the same type preamp output connected in parallel inside the amplifier.
Microphone is muted in zone 2
LINE LEVEL AUDIO INPUT
RCA input for line level audio. Signal from line inputs can be selected and broadcast to
zones by using line input selector located in the front panel.
Microphone is muted in zone 1
PAGING MICROPHONE INPUT
This input is designed to connect Talk St Z2 paging microphone to amplifier. 5
pin XLR connector’s audio inputs pin’s and 3 pin XLR are connected in parallel
with each other, because of this reason please connect only one microphone in
one MIC input.
MICROPHONE INPUT
This is balanced microphone input. This input as well as MIC 2 and MIC 3 inputs
are suitable for dinamic microphones only. MIC 1 input is priority input.

Operation
PHANTOM POWER
Phantom power can be activated inside the amplifier for all XRL inputs individually. In order to activate phantom power remove amplifier’s top cover and set
phantom power jumpers to position ON. Jumpers are located in the input board
near the XLR connectors. All XLR input has its own jumper. Turn on phantom
power for input which will be used with condenser microphone. For dynamic
type microphones phantom power must be disabled.
