OWNER’S MANUAL
MIXING AMPLIFIERS
APart MA200CDR mixing amplifier
The MA200CDR is a professional 4 zone PA mixing amplifier for commercial and industrial applications.
Rarely seen on its competitors, all microphone inputs have integrated speech filters and they are high-class
transistor-balanced type, allowing good control of hum and noise over long cables.
He's able to drive 8-ohm or constant-voltage loudspeaker lines (50-70-100V).
The amplifier has integrated radio, 4 microphone inputs, 4 selectable line sources and
one emergency/telephone input.
Mic input 1 is meant to be the main microphone paging input, for its signal can be fed via the
front ¼” TRS phone jack or via a combo XLR3/jack, DIN 5 or euroblock connector at the back.

PRIORITY
The MA200CDR has a three level priority system.
The emergency/telephone input at the back has the highest priority. Its signal goes directly to the main amplifier,
bypassing any front control, and an attenuator next to the input sets its level. Microphone input 1 has the second
priority level. With the control next to the XLR input, the vox (voice activated) mute for microphone 1 can be activated
and mutes all other signals, except the emergency input. The third level can be activated via a dry contact (“priority
over music”) and mutes all background music inputs only. This contact activates the chime as well, only when a level
has been set using the “chime level” potentiometer.

Keep this manual for future reference.
Water and humidity are the biggest enemies of electric equipment. Operating it under moist conditions can even
be dangerous.
Clean only with dry cloth.
Do not operate near heaters or place it on other apparatus which produce a lot of heat.
Be sure your unit is always connected to the electrical safety earth. Do not defeat the safety purpose of a
grounding-type plug. If you have any doubt, please consult your dealer or a qualified technician.
Take care for the power cord. Never use a damaged power cord and install it in such a way that no one can
walk on it.
Only use accessories specified by the manufacturer.
Distorted sound indicates that operating conditions are bad. Decrease the volume, check the speakers and
sources are connected, or switch off the unit.
Disconnect the unit from the mains power supply, when you do not use it for a longer period.
When smoke ore bad smell comes from your MA200CDR, switch off immediately and disconnect from mains.
This apparatus should only be serviced by qualified personnel. If not, the warranty might be void.
Do not remove the cover panel. Removal of the cover will expose hazardous voltages.
We advise to use the back mounting holes as well; certainly in mobile racks.
Do not block the air inlets of the amplifier and see that sufficient cool air can be supplied.
Please check the units' condition after unpacking. If the outside of the carton box has been damaged,
inform your shipper immediately.
Check all speaker lines for load charge (by APart wattmeter WM100) and short circuits, before connecting
them to your amplifiers!

2. Overload indicator. This red LED illuminates when one of the protections have been activated. No or distorted
sound will be heard anymore. This will be in case of overheating, being the result of drawing too much power from
your amplifier, or the impedance of the speaker lines connected are below the minimum load impedance (see17).
3. Level indicators/clip-limit. A green LED will light after powering on. To work within normal conditions the volume
indicator should be kept under 0dB (100%). At -2,5dB a limiter will be activated. This red LED indicates that the “auto
gain circuit” keeps the level below clipping. This is NOT a clip indicator, but an indication of
the “automatic gain control”.
4. Zone selectors. With these selectors you can activate the zone outputs. A green led at the left of the switches will
confirm that you have activated zone 1 to 3. For zone 4, two selectors are available. By means of those two selectors
you can decide to send background music only, spoken messages only, both or none of them. Two yellow leds will
confirm your selection. When you have selected the music only mode for zone 4, there will be silence during paging.
5. Master level control. Here you can adjust the desired volume of the overall signal.
6. Microphone 1 input. This balanced ¼” TRS phone jack has been wired in parallel with the other three input
options for microphone 1 at the back. For satisfying operation, use only one of these inputs at the time for microphone
1. Microphone 1 can be given a priority over all other inputs by using the VOX priority (see 29).
7. Microphone 1 level control. Adjusts the volume of the microphone connected to one of the four input connectors
(1/4” jack, XLR3 combo jack, DIN5 or euro block).

15. Voltage selector. Set the local voltage. If any doubt, contact your dealer. The unit is shipped
with the selector set to 230VAC.
• Do not use the unit if the electrical power cord is frayed or broken.
16. Mains socket. The unit can be connected to the mains circuit by a standard IEC type power cord. This socket
contains a 6,3AT, slow blow fuse. Use a screw driver to flip out the fuse compartment and to replace it by the same
type. When this fuse blows frequently, you should check the speaker load or bring the MA200CDR to a qualified
service centre. First check whether you didn't use a quick-blow fuse!
• Always operate the unit with the AC ground wire connected to the electrical system ground.
17. Zone 100V loudspeaker outputs. When you need to activate/deactivate separate loudspeaker zones, you
should use these 100V outputs. These connectors should only be used for 100V operation. They are activated by the
selectors at the front (see 4). Don't use these 100V outputs together with the 8 ohm, 50V or 70V terminals.
The minimum impedance of all 100V loudspeaker lines together should be at least 50? (100Vx100V/50? = 200watt).
18. Emergency power supply. You can power the amplifier directly from an emergency battery or power supply
supplying 24V DC/20A.
19. Loudspeaker outputs. For low impedance use com and 8? . Keep impedance above 8? .
For 50, 70 or 100V speaker lines use COM and 50, 70 or 100V terminals.
For 100V operation, the total minimum impedance of the loudspeaker lines should be 50 ? . For 70V operation the
minimum impedance should be 24,5 ? and for 50V 12,5 ? .
Don't mix the types of speaker connections. Only one at the time should be used, unless you are able to calculate a
combination which does not overload the amplifier (example: 100? at 100V for a loud zone in combination with 25? at
50V for a quiet zone).
20. 24V DC output. At this terminal (-/+) 24V DC will be available (max. 1A) from the moment a priority has been
activated, to control priority relays of local volume attenuators or other devices.
21. Power amp in / pre amp out. You can send the signal of the pre-amplifier to an external device such as an
equalizer (APart PXQ2215) or limiter and feed the treated signal back into the amplifier via the power amp input.
From the “pre-amplifier out” you can also feed extra power amplifiers such as the Apart PA240P. Don't forget to feed
the signal back into the “power amp in”. When you don't use this feature, the RCA bridge should be placed.
22. Tuner output mono. Here you can recover a fixed signal of the internal tuner to feed other devices such as your
telephone's 'music on hold' system.
23. Rec. out. When you need a copy of the total mix, you can connect this output to any recording device such as
tape deck, MD recorder, VHS recorder, etc….You can also use this output to feed an extra amplifier. This output level
cannot be controlled separately. When you connect your MA200CDR pre amp out or record out to a microphone input
of another mixing amplifier, this input will have signal overload and the sound will be masked. In this case you should
use a line input, a DI-box or other signal levelling device. Never connect this output to an amplifier loudspeaker
output!
24. CD stereo output (input), 500mV.
Here you can recover a fixed signal of the internal CD/MP3 player to feed other devices such as your 'music on hold'
telephone system. In case the internal CD player has been switched off, you can feed a line level signal. In this case
don't switch your internal CD player on!
25. AUX input, 500mV. Use this stereo RCA input to connect a line level source such as CD player, MD player, BGM
computer, etc…. You have to make your choice with the selector at the front (see 12). Stereo signals will be summed

• Make sure power outlets conform to the power requirements listed on the back of the unit.
• Have gain controls on amplifiers turned down during power-up to prevent
speaker damage if there are high signal levels at the inputs.
• Do not connect the inputs / outputs of amplifiers or consoles to any other voltage source,
such as a battery, mains source, or power supply, regardless of whether
the amplifier or console is turned on or off.
• Power down & disconnect units from mains voltage before making connections.
• Do not use the unit near stoves, heat registers, radiators, or other heat producing devices.
• Do not block fan intake or exhaust ports. Do not operate equipment on a surface or in an
environment which may distort the normal flow of air around the unit. If the unit is used in an
extremely dusty or smoky environment, the unit should be periodically "blown free" of dust.
• Do not remove the cover. Removing the cover will expose you to potentially dangerous voltages.
• Do not drive the inputs with a signal level greater than that required to drive equipment
to full output.
• Do not run the output of any amplifier back into another input.
• Do not ground the red output terminal, never connect a red output terminal to
another red output terminal.
• In case of mal-function this device should be serviced by qualified service personnel only.

26. Line 4, 200mV / Mic 4 input. Use only one of these parallel wired inputs at the time! To the XLR3 balanced input
you can connect any microphone using a balanced, two wire shielded cable. (1=earth / 2 =hot / 3=cold). For using
condenser microphones see 41. The Microphone 4 input is a XLR3/combo jack, which will accept a normal XLR3
male plug or a ¼” TRS phone jack.
Line 4 is more sensitive than the other line (music) inputs, therefore ideal to connect wireless microphone receivers.
27. Mic 2 Mic 3 XLR inputs. To the XLR balanced input you can connect any microphone using a balanced, two

28. Mic 1 XLR / DIN5 / Euro block. Use only one of these parallel wired balanced inputs at the time! See wiring
diagram at the back. These three inputs have been wired in parallel with the balanced jack input at the front. When
you use the APart MICPAT or MICPACB paging microphones, connected directly to the DIN5 input, the signals fed into
the line inputs are muted automatically while paging. The same kind of connection can be made using the euro block
connector. To use “vox mute” see 29.
Phantom power: use condenser microphones see 41
In fact working with 100V loudspeakers is rather simple, when done in the right way.
Each 100V loudspeaker has a 100V transformer which can be set to a certain power,
for example: 1,5 3 or 6W. As the example shows, the sum of all loudspeaker settings should never
exceed the amplifier's power specifications.
Never use low impedance (= 8 ohm) loudspeakers on a 100Volt system, even not one.
More technically: When your paging amp has a maximum output of 200 watts at 100V,
this means that the minimum impedance connected should be at least 50 ohm (100x100/200).
To check your loudspeaker lines use a decent impedance checker (example AP WM100).
Now you are ready to get the best result on distributing your music and messages to your audience.
Your little giant is like a Swiss knife which will astonish you and many others!
29. Vox mutes all. When you activate “vox mute” by turning this trimmer clockwise to the desired threshold level, the
signal of any Mic1 input has priority. When you don't need “vox mute”, turn this trimmer fully counter-clockwise to the
“OFF” position.
30. Priority over music contact. By closing the contact of the euro block connector or contacts 4 and 5 of the DIN5
connector, the signal of microphone 1 only has priority over the music sources (TUNER, CD and AUX). All other
microphones will remain active. The contact closure of the contacts mentioned can give priority to the other
microphone inputs as well. At the same time 24 V DC will be available at terminal 20. This is very useful when using
up to 4 microphones in supermarkets, etc…
31. Chime level. When one of the priority contacts are closed a chime can be activated by turning this trimmer
clockwise to the desired chime level. When you don't need a chime, turn this control fully counter-clockwise to the
“OFF” position.
32. Emergency / telephone input. Here you can feed the audio source for paging emergency messages, etc.. This
input, at line level, has automatic activation above 200mV and has a line transformer to avoid ground loops (useful for
telephone). Please use a balanced, shielded line cable. Connect the HOT signal to +, the COLD to and the shield to
G (when connecting the shield only at the MA200CDR side, you might avoid a ground loop, which creates hum and
buzz). This signal is directly fed into the main amplifier.
No microphones should be connected directly to this input without using a mic to line pre-amplifier.
33. Emergency / telephone level. With this potentiometer you can set the desired level of the line level signal
inserted into the priority signal input 32. This level will not be influenced by the “master” level.
34. FM antenna. This socket has to be used to connect your 75 ohm FM antenna. You can use the shipped indoor
“wire” antenna, but to improve the reception, we advise to install an outdoor FM antenna or to connect the MA200CDR
to the cable radio network.
Important notice: In case you connect to the cable radio network, we recommend a ground isolator HF transformer in
order to avoid hum (ground loops) or wire only connecting the HOT pin.
Find more interesting audio solutions at www.apartaudio.com
35. AM antenna socket. Here, the shipped indoor AM antenna has to be connected.
36. Airflow output. This airflow output should be kept free at all times! To give the fan a longer life time, he only
starts running when the heatsink reaches a certain temperature.

involved so you can use condenser microphones. In this case NO unbalanced jacks should be used! Phantom power
does not damage dynamic balanced microphones.
Power supply fuse (inside the housing)
When this fuse blows, replace it by the same type: 20A quick blow. When this happens frequently, contact your
nearest dealer.
Now you are ready to build your solid sound system and our extra features will be of great help.
Note: In our policy of continuous improvement, changes can appear without prior notice, including the user manual.
Troubleshooting
No power: Check whether the “on/off” switch is in the on position and whether the power cord has been inserted
properly. If these two have been checked and still the MA200CDR remains off, the fuse might be blown.
No sound: Check all the wires and loudspeaker selectors.
At least the master and one source should be turned clockwise.
Check whether the pre amp out is connected to the power amp in.
In the worst case your MA200CDR is in protective mode.
Please check your loudspeaker wiring and loads.
Operate your MA200CDR within normal conditions.
Distorted sound: Your input signal is too high.
Haven't you a line level source connected to a microphone input?
You might also be drawing too much power from your MA200CDR and the loudspeaker load
might be too low (minimum 50 ohm for 100V use).
Check the speaker wiring and load with an impedance tester. Turn down the master level.
Hum and buzz: Please check your wiring and grounding, maybe you created a ground loop.
See that all equipment linked are drawing power from the same power supply.
Your radio might get its signal from the cable radio. In this case you have created a
ground loop and a ground loop isolator between the cable signal and your
radio antenna input will be the solution.
