WARNING
CAUTION!
Keep this system away from rain and moisture!
FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY, PLEASE READ THIS USER MANUAL CAREFULLY
BEFORE YOUR INITIAL START-UP!
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Every person involved with the installation, operation and maintenance of this system have to:
be qualified
follow the instructions of this manual
CAUTION! Be careful with your operations.
With a dangerous voltage you can suffer
a dangerous electric shock when touching the wires!
Before you initial start-up, please make sure that there is no damage caused by transportation. Should
there be any, consult your dealer and do not use the system.
To maintain perfect condition and to ensure a safe operation, it is absolutely necessary for the user to
follow the safety instructions and warning notes written in this manual.
Please consider that damages caused by manual modifications to the system are not subject to
warranty.
This system contains no user-serviceable parts. Refer servicing to qualified technicians only.
IMPORTANT:
The manufacturer will not accept liability for any resulting damages caused by the nonobservance of this manual or any unauthorized modification to the system.
Never let the power-cord come into contact with other cables! Handle the power-cord and all
connections with the mains with particular caution!
Never remove warning or informative labels from the unit.
Never use anything to cover the ground contact.
Do not insert objects into air vents.
Do not connect this system to a dimmer pack.
Do not switch the system on and off in short intervals, as this would reduce the system’s life.
Do not open the device and do not modify the device.
Do not open this device. Risk: hazardous radiation exposure.
Only use system indoor, avoid contact with water or other liquids.
Avoid flames and do not put close to flammable liquids or gases.
Always disconnect power from the mains, when system is not used. Only handle the power-cord
by the plug. Never pull out the plug by tugging the power-cord.
Make sure you don’t use the wrong kind of cables or defective cables.
Make sure that the signals into the mixer are balanced, otherwise hum could be created.
Make sure you use DI boxes to balance unbalanced signals; all incoming signals should be clear.
Make sure that the available voltage is not higher than stated on the rear panel.
Make sure that the power-cord is never crimped or damaged. Check the system and the powercord from time to time.
Make sure that the amplifier is turned down, before turning the power on or off. So you can avoid
supersonic frequencies, which could damage your speakers.
Don't put your equipment next to TV, radio, etc., because of interference or distortion.
If you connect other parts of the system, be careful of ground loops.
The best way to avoid ground loops is connecting the electrical system ground to one central
point ("star" system). In this case the mixer can act as a central point.
Before changing the ground, always turn off your amplifier.

Please read this manual carefully and keep it for future reference. Remember that the amplifier
has a better value on the market, if you save the carton and all packing materials.
Always operate the unit with the AC ground wire connected to the electrical system ground.
Connecting amplifier outputs to oscilloscopes or other test equipment, while the amplifier is in
bridged mode, may damage both the amplifier and test equipment.
Do not drive the inputs with a signal level bigger, than required to drive the equipment to full
output.
In system setup, the amplifier's output power must be 50%-100% more than the loaded
loudspeakers rated power.
Please turn off the power switch, when changing the power cord or signal cable, or select the
input mode switch.
In typical use, please set the volume at 0dB position.
Sometimes, when you want to send one signal to more than one amplifier, you should use a signal
distributor.
If your Dap Audio device fails to work properly, discontinue use immediately. Pack the unit
securely (preferably in the original packing material), and return it to your Dap Audio dealer for
service.
Allow time to cool down, before cleaning or servicing.
For replacement use fuses of same type and rating only.
Prevent distortion! Make sure that all components connected to the DSA have sufficient power
ratings. Otherwise distortion will be generated because the components are operated at their
limits.
Avoid ground loops! Always be sure to connect the power amps and the mixing console to the
same electrical circuit to ensure the same phase!
If system is dropped or struck, disconnect mains power supply immediately. Have a qualified
engineer inspect for safety before operating.
If the system has been exposed to drastic temperature fluctuation (e.g. after transportation), do
not switch it on immediately. The arising condensation water might damage your system. Leave
the system switched off until it has reached room temperature.
This device falls under protection class I. Therefore it is essential to connect the yellow/green
conductor to earth.
Repairs, servicing and electric connection must be carried out by a qualified technician.
WARRANTY: Till one year after date of purchase.

Operation
Installation
Remove all packing materials from the IPS-WPT. Check that all foam and plastic padding is removed.
Secure the equipment into a 19" rack. Connect all cables.
Connecting Power / Circuit Size Requirements.
The actual current draw, the amplifier demands from the AC mains, depends on many factors (its load,
output level or the crest factor of its program material).
The power requirement is rated under typical music conditions, with both channels driven so those peaks
are just at the clipping point.
Make sure the mains voltage is correct and is the same as printed on the rear of the amplifier. Damage
caused by connecting the amplifier to improper AC voltage is not covered by any warranty. Unless
otherwise specified when ordered. DAP audio amplifiers shipped to customers are configured as follows:
North America 120VAC/60Hz
Europe 230VAC/50Hz
Asia 220VAC /50Hz/60Hz
Australia 240VAC/50Hz
South America 120VAC/60Hz or 220VAC/50Hz
Japan 100VAC/50Hz
NOTE: Always turn off and disconnect the amplifier from mains voltage before making audio
connections. Also, as an extra precaution, have the attenuators turned down during power-up.
Connecting the device
Below an example of a possible setup.
NOTE: Always turn off and disconnect the amplifier from mains voltage before making any connections.
