Introduction
Small, energy efficient, and affordable the Atlona Stereo/Mono Audio Amplifier fits the needs of
most offices, classrooms and more. Unlike traditional A/B amplifiers the Class D audio amplifier is
energy efficient and easily integrated behind a TV where space is limited.
Package Contents
• 1 x AT-PA100-G2
• 1 x Locking AC Adapter
• 1 x User Manual
Features
• AT-PA100-G2 is a class D amplifier which uses less energy, doesn’t require heat syncs or power
transformers, making it smaller than a class A/B amplifier
• Stereo, mono, and bridge audio speaker output connections available through captive screw
• Has a variable 3.5mm audio loop out for cascading to another AT-PA100-G2 or connecting to
other audio amplifiers
• 3 pin captive screw MIC input can support balanced and unbalanced signals (suppresses external
noise)
• Energy efficient standby mode only requires 4Ws of power. AT-PA100-G2 goes into standby
mode if an audio signal isn’t present
• Control through the panel buttons, an (optional) IR remote, and RS-232
• 3 position input switch:
48V phantom power - best for condenser MICs without battery power
MIC - Great for Dynamic MICs and battery powered condenser MICs
Line - Connect a Wireless MIC
• Volume, Bass, and Treble can be controlled through RS-232, IR, or panel buttons

Note: In a cascading chain, the AT-PA100-G2s will share the source of the 1st AT-PA100-G2.
Note: When using the loop out, the output is variable and dependant on the volume level.
If cascading, the 2nd AT-PA100-G2’s volume will change with the 1st AT-PA100-G2.
Note: The volume status is available through RS-232 feedback from the first AT-PA100-G2.
Note: When cascading, the MIC is only available for the first AT-PA100-G2’s speaker output.
