FRONT PANEL
The AMNG Series differ only slightly across all models and all share the same
features on their front panels.
The functions of the controls and indicators are as follows:
1 Power Switch
Press the switch to up for power on and down for power off. At start-up
(turn-on), the input to the amplifier is muted for approximately two seconds.
2 Australian Monitor Logo/On Indicator
The Australian Monitor logo will illuminate and indicates that the amplifier is on
and receiving mains power.
3 Fault Indicator
This red LED indicates a problem with the amplifier or that it has over heated.
In the advent of a thermal overload, the internal operating temperature of one
or both amplifier channels has exceeded a safe level of operation and the
channels will be automatically muted. The fans will continue to run and once
the affected channel/s have cooled, they will unmute and return to normal
operation.

6 Clip
This red LED will illuminate when clip occurs.
Clipping can occur under extreme operating conditions such as:
complex or very low loads
over driving the amplifier
It should be noted that the minimum load for the amplifier is 2 ohms per
channel (4 ohm bridged).
NOTE: The amplifier is not damaged by running into clipping, but
speakers may be. To maximise the life of your speakers, try to keep
clipping infrequent.
The clip detection circuit works by using the feedback circuit where the input
is continually compared to the output. When the input differs from the output
either due to rail clipping or current limiting the clip circuit is triggered.
This point also controls the voltage limiter so the voltage will limit at precisely
the clip point no matter what the load is or where the mains voltage level is.
7 Bridge Indicator
This amber LED will illuminate when the input switch is set to bridge.
8 Fan Grill
4 Attenuator
Level control for your amplifier is provided by a potentiometer on the front panel
and indicates gain. There are two controls on all AMNG models. Each control is
labelled for the channel which it operates.
5 VU Meter
This is where air is drawn into the amplifier for cooling.
NOTE: You should always ensure that the fan Gril is kept clean and
free from the build up of dust and lint. This will ensure longer operation
of your amplifier and reduce the possibility of it prematurely going into
thermal shutdown mode. See the section “Installation – Cooling” on
page 7 for recommended cooling procedures.
This is a blue LED lamp which displays the level of the output stage signal.
The attack and decay time (ballistics), of the status circuit are those of a Peak
Programme Meter (P.P.M.)

REAR PANEL
9 Balanced Input
A female 3-pin combined XLR/TRS type connector is provided on each input:
Pin 1/Sleeve = Signal Ground;
Pin 2/Tip = Hot (non-inverting or in phase);
Pin 3/Ring = Cold (inverting or reverse phase).
10 Signal Strapping
A male 3-pin XLR type connector is provided and wired in parallel with the
female input XLR for strapping / looping signal between amplifiers.
11 Signal Ground Lift Switch
When this switch is engaged it disconnects signal ground from the input
connectors on both channels. It is intended to be used when “hum” is caused
by earth loops (due to different ground potentials between source equipment
and the amplifier) or stray magnetic field pick up on the input ground/
shield wiring. (It does not interrupt signal ground continuity on the strapping
connector). The amplifier should be turned off before engaging this switch!
12 Binding Post Outputs
Touch proof binding posts (banana jacks) are provided for speaker output
termination with banana plugs or bare wire. The red post is used as positive
and the black post is used as negative. For bridge connection, use only the red
posts.
13 Speaker Output Connector
A 4 pole speaker connector is provided as an additional speaker output.
This standard of loudspeaker-to-amplifier connection allows access to both
channels of the amplifier via the one connector for bi-amp applications.
Channel-A is considered the dominant channel and has both channels wired to
the speaker connector. See the installation section of this manual for detailed
information on speaker connector wiring.

14 Mains Connection
Your amplifier is fitted with an internationally recognised IEC mains inlet
connector.
Please ensure that the connecting mains lead for use with the IEC connector is
of an approved type and is of sufficient current carrying ability.
NOTE: Your unit must always be earthed!
15 Circuit Breaker
The amplifier is fitted with a resettable circuit breaker.
If the circuit breaker trips, allow 3 mins for the contacts to reset thermally
before pushing the reset button to reset it mechanically.
16 Stereo/Bridge/Parallel Mono Switch
When set to STEREO, your amplifier operates as two independant channels.
When set to PARALLEL, your amplifier will only accept signal applied to Channel
A’s input XLR. Channel B’s output signal will come from A’s input but both
channels will have independent attenuator control.
When set to BRIDGE mode of operation your amplifier will only accept
signal applied to channel A’s input XLRs and the level of both channels
will be controlled by the channel A attenuator. The output from channel B
will automatically be of the opposite polarity (reversed phase) and speaker
termination should be sourced from the red binding-post outputs. Alternatively,
the speaker could be connected to poles 1+ & 2+ of the 4 pole speaker
connector (see Installation – Output Wiring on page 7).
17 Gain Setting
This switch adjusts the sensitivity of your amplifier. When set to 0dB a 0dBu
signal applied to the input with the attenuator at max will deliver maximum
power to the output.

INSTALLATION
Power Requirements
When wiring for an unbalanced source:
Power consumption for your model of the AMNG Series amplifier is indicated on
the rear panel for maximum output.
Pin 1/Sleeve = GROUND/SHIELD
Ensure that your mains voltage is the same as the rear panel mains voltage
marker (+/- 10%).
Mounting
Your amplifier is designed for standard 19” (482mm) rack mounting and
occupies 2 EIA rack units 3.5” (88mm). The mounting centres are:
Vertical: 3.0” (76.2mm)
Horizontal: 18.2” (461.2mm) to 18.7” (473.8mm).
The slots in the mounting flange will accept bolt diameters up to 1/4”
(6.35mm).
We recommend that you provide additional support for the amplifier, especially
if road use is planned, as the weight could bend some rack frames. This
support can be provided by secure shelving on support rails.
Pin 2/Tip = HOT (in phase with the amplifier’s output),
Pin 3/Ring = GROUND/SHIELD (joins to pin 1).
NOTE: In-line XLR connectors often have a termination lug that
connects directly to the chassis of the connector.
IMPORTANT: Do not link this lug to pin 1 at the amplifier’s input as
it will defeat the amplifier’s input grounding scheme.
Output Wiring
When wiring to your speakers always use the largest gauge wire your
connector will accept. The longer the speaker lead, the greater the losses will
be, resulting in reduced power and less damping at the load. We recommend
using a heavy duty, two core flex (four core flex if bi-amping) 10 to 12 gauge
(2mm2 to 2.5mm2 or 50/0.25 or equivalent) as a minimum.
Binding Post Outputs
Cooling
Your AMNG Series amplifier is cooled by an axial fan which draws cool air from
the front of the amplifier and expels the heated air out the rear of the amplifier.
These amplifiers offer variable speed fans which run at half speed up to to full
speed when the internal heatsink temperature exceeds 60° C (128° F).
An unrestricted airflow into and out from the amplifier must be provided.
Any restriction of the air flow will cause heat to build up within the unit and
possibly force the unit into its thermal shutdown mode.
If the amplifiers are to be operated in an environment where the airflow is
restricted such as sealed racks, the cooling should be supplemented by extra
cooling fans to evacuate the heated air and aid the flow of cool air through
the unit.
When terminating to the 4 mm binding post (banana jack) output connectors,
banana plugs or bare wires can be used. The red terminal is positive and the
black terminal is negative (ground).
If running in BRIDGE mode, only the red binding posts are used.
When bridging, Channel A provides the positive output to the load and channel
B provides the negative output to the load.
Speaker Outputs
When using the 4 pole speaker connector for speaker output, use only the
mating 4 pole in-line connector. This connector is designed so that both
channels can be fed from a single connector.
Two speaker connectors are provided on the amplifier.
Input Wiring
IMPORTANT: Do not directly connect pin 1 on the amplifier’s input
or strapping XLR, to the amplifier’s chassis, speaker ground or power
ground!
WARNING: Input signal ground is not to be used as a safety
ground (earth).
The input to your amplifier is a balanced 3-pin configuration and requires all
three pins to be connected. Only high quality twin-core shielded cable should
be used.
When wiring for a balanced source, the connector going to the input of your
amplifier should be wired as follows:
The ”Channel A” speaker connector actually carries both channel A and channel
B outputs (see Speaker Connector Wiring Diagrams).
The ”Channel B” speaker connector carries the Channel B output only.
This arrangement allows you the option of connecting to the outputs separately
or together. Connecting through a single connector has the advantage of
minimising connections, preserving phasing and simplifying channel allocation,
which is particularly important when bi-amping or in bridge mode.
IMPORTANT: Do not overload your amplifier by connecting the
channel B output twice!
Pin 1/Sleeve = GROUND / SHIELD.
Channel A is used as the “dominant” channel and when sourcing a dual output
from Channel A, the following standard should normally be used (depending on
speaker system wiring):
Pin 2/Tip = HOT (In Phase - non inverting).
Channel A = Left or Low Frequencies.
Pin 3/Ring = COLD (Reverse Phase - inverting).
Channel B = Right or High Frequencies.
When wiring from an unbalanced source you must ensure that pin 3 is
connected to pin 1 (input ground), either by linking the pins in the input
connector or by the source equipment’s output wiring.
When in bridge mode:
AM2200NG & AM2600NG INSTALLATION AND OPERATION MANUAL
Pin 1+ = Bridge Output Positive
Pin 2+ = Bridge Output Negative

Speaker Connector Wiring Diagram
Hum Problems continued
This is by far the most common cause of hum, and it occurs when source
equipment and the amplifier are plugged into different points along the safety
earth where the safety earth wiring has a current flowing through it. The current
flowing through the wire produces a voltage drop due to the wire’s resistance.
This voltage difference between the amp earth and source equipment earth
appears to the amplifier’s input as a signal and is amplified as hum.
There are three things you can do to avoid earth loop problems:
Ensure the mains power for the audio system is “quiet” i.e. without equipment
on it such as air-conditioning, refrigeration or lighting which may generate noise
in the earth circuit.
Ensure all equipment within the system shares a common ground/ safety
earth point. This will reduce the possibility of circulating earth currents, as the
equipment will be referenced to the same ground potential.
Ensure that balanced signal leads connecting to the amplifier are connected to
earth at one end only.
Signal Ground-Lift Switch
When proper system hook-up has been made, you may still have some hum
or hum related noise. This may be due to any of the previously mentioned
gremlins.
Hum Problems
Most equipment is designed for minimum hum when used under ideal
conditions. When connected to other equipment, and to a safety earth in an
electrically noisy environment, problems may occur.
The three ”E”s of hum and hum related noise which can plague your audio
system are:
a) Electrostatic radiation,
b) Electromagnetic radiation,
c) Earth loops
Electrostatic radiation capacitively couples to system elements, causing an
interference voltage that mainly affects higher impedance paths, such as
amplifier inputs. The source is generally a nearby high voltage, such as a mains
lead or a speaker lead. The problem can usually be reduced by moving the
offending lead away, or by providing additional electrostatic shielding (i.e. an
earthed conductor which forms a barrier to the field).
Electromagnetic radiation induces interference currents into system elements
that mainly affect lower impedance paths. Radio transmitters or stray magnetic
fields from mains transformers are often the cause of this problem. It is
generally more difficult to eliminate this kind of interference, but again, moving
the source away or providing a magnetic shield (i.e. a steel shield) should help.
Your AMNG Series amplifier has a “Signal Ground Lift” switch which
disconnects the input ground wiring from the amplifier. A substantial drop in
hum and/or hum related noise can result from the judicious use of this switch.
NOTE: If the input ground lift switch is used, you must ensure adequate
shielding of the input wiring. If the signal source equipment does not
provide adequate shielding (i.e. a definitive connection to ground), you
must disconnect the shield from the input connector’s ground pin (Pin-1)
and re-connect it to the ”drain” contact on the input connector. This
willensure the shield on your input wiring actually goes to the amplifier
chassis and subsequently to earth.
IMPORTANT: Do not connect pin-1 directly to the drain connection.
You will defeat the amplifiers internal grounding scheme and possibly
cause instability to the amplifier.
Always ensure that your amplifier is off and the attenuators are down
when you engage this switch. This switch should only be used when the
amplifier is operated from a balanced signal source.
NOTE: Be wary of quasi-balanced outputs, these are often no more
than floating unbalanced outputs.
Earth loops can arise from the interfacing of the various pieces of equipment
and their connections to various safety earths.
PAGE 8
AM2200NG & AM2600NG INSTALLATION AND OPERATION MANUAL
OPERATION
IMPORTANT: All signal source equipment should be adequately
earthed. This not only ensures your safety but everybody else’s as well.
Faults can and do occur in mains connected equipment where the
chassis can become “live” if it is not properly earthed. In these instances, the fault in a “floating” (ungrounded) piece of equipment will look for the
shortest path to ground, which could possibly be your amplifier’s input. If
the fault current is large enough, it will destroy the input to your amplifier
and look for the next available path, which may be you!
Before making any connections to your AMNG Series amplifier, observe the
following:
Ensure the mains voltage supply matches the label on the rear panel of
your amplifier (+/- 10%).
Ensure that the power switch is OFF.
Ensure that all system grounds (earth) are connected from a common
point. Avoid powering equipment within a system from multiple power
sources that may be separated by large distances.
Check the continuity of all interconnecting leads to your amplifier; ensure
that there are no open or short circuited conductors.
Ensure that the power handling of your load (speakers) can adequately
cope with the power output of the amplifier.
Before operating your AMNG Series amplifier, ensure that:
The attenuators are at the “OFF” position (fully anticlockwise).
The GROUND LIFT Switch is not engaged (should be in the “out” position).
Level Matching
The normal operating position for the attenuator is the max position (fully
clockwise, no attenuation). In this position the amplifier operates at full gain.
Turning the attenuator back (anticlockwise) reduces the input sensitivity.
NOTE: If full power output is required, you should operate your
amplifier with the front panel attenuator above the half way (12o’clock)
position, otherwise clipping of the input circuitry and its resultant
distortion will occur before full output power is achieved.
Sensitivity
Your amplifier is a linear device operating with a fixed input to output voltage
gain (less attenuation). The maximum output voltage swing is determined by the
applied mains voltage, load, load type and the duty cycle of the applied signal.
The input sensitivity for your AMNG Series amplifier when the attenuator is at
maximum position (fully clockwise) is nominally:
0dBu (0.775 volts in) for rated power into a 4 ohm load.
Each channel of your AMNG Series amplifier has a nominal balanced input
impedance of 20kOhms (@1kHz) and should not present a difficult load for any
signal source.
Your signal source (i.e. the equipment feeding signal to the amplifier) should
have an output impedance of 600 Ohms or lower to avoid unwanted high
frequency loss in the cabling.
Input overload occurs at +20.5dBu(8.25volts).
The BRIDGE Switch is not engaged if you are not running the amp in
bridged mode.
Powering Up
REMEMBER: The amplifier should be the last piece of equipment
that you turn on and the first piece of equipment that you turn off.
We recommend turning the attenuators on your amplifier down when
turning the unit on.
When you power up your AMNG Series, your amplifier goes through an
initialising period before it will accept signal. The Inrush Current Suppression
(ICS) circuit is in operation for the first 0.2 seconds. This limits the mains
current, to prevent ”nuisance-tripping” of circuit breakers.
During this period you will hear a couple of relays “click”, indicating mains is
now directly applied to the amplifier and the signal path is connected.
While the ICS circuit operates there is also a 30dB mute on the signal input.
After two seconds this mute will release, allowing any applied signal to pass
un-attenuated.
When switching the amplifier off, wait a couple of seconds before switching the
amplifier on again. This allows the ICS circuit to reset.

MAINTENANCE
Only competent or qualified persons should attempt any service or
maintenance of your amplifier. Your AMNG Series amplifier will need minimal
maintenance. No internal adjustments need to be made to the unit to maintain
optimum performance. To provide years of unhindered operation we suggest a
maintenance inspection be carried out on a regular basis, say every 12 months
or so.
Fans
Over time, dust may build up on the leading edge of the fan blades and reduce
their cooling efficiency. The time taken for this to happen will depend on the
environment and the amount of use.
The fan blades are accessible once the lids are removed and can be easily
cleaned. You need only hold the fan rotor still and wipe the dust off the blades.
Many users stall the fan and use compressed air to blow the dust off the fan
blades. It is important to note that the fan blades must be held still whilst
blowing air over the blades otherwise you may burn out the bearings in the fan.
Due to the openness of the air path through your AMNG Series amplifier, very
little dust should settle within the amplifier. The unit has been designed so
that any dust and/or foreign particles that do settle within the amplifier will not
unduly hinder the cooling of the amplifier.
The grill in front of the fans will act to limit the amount of dust and lint
entering the amplifier. You will find in time that there will be a build up of dust
and lint on the grill which may start to hinder the airflow through the amplifier.
You should periodically remove the dust and keep the grill clean. Removal of
dust from the rear grill will also aid cooling.
