Overview
The high performance 904 Power Amplifier is a power amplifier for stereo
audio balanced signals. It can output up to 75 Watts RMS per channel, as it
uses the latest Class “T” technology for highly efficient conversion1 to the
pair of loudspeakers with the absolute minimum power loss.
The 904 includes:
An OUTPUT LEVEL control knob to adjust the output signal
OUTPUT LEVEL multi-color LED2 indications for left and right speakers
Outputs for a headphone set and for a pair of loudspeakers3
Easy-to-connect detachable terminal block connectors
A MUTE button to block out the sound
To achieve the best performance:
Connect only good quality connection cables, thus avoiding interference,
deterioration in signal quality due to poor matching, and elevated noiselevels (often associated with low quality cables)
Avoid interference from neighboring electrical appliances and position
your Kramer 904 away from moisture, excessive sunlight and dust

Installing the 904 on a Rack

Installing the 904 on a Rack
This section describes what to do before installing on a rack and how to rack
mount.
Before Installing on a Rack
Before installing on a rack, be sure that the environment is
within the recommended range:
Operating temperature range +5 to +45 Deg. Centigrade
Operating humidity range
5 to 65 % RHL, non-condensing
Storage temperature range
-20 to +70 Deg. Centigrade
Storage humidity range
5 to 95% RHL, non-condensing
How to Rack Mount
To rack-mount the machine:
1
Attach both ear brackets to the
machine. To do so, remove the
screws from each side of the
machine (3 on each side), and
replace those screws through
the ear brackets.
CAUTION!!
When installing on a 19" rack, avoid hazards by taking
care that:
1
It is located within the recommended environmental
conditions, as the operating ambient temperature of a
closed or multi unit rack assembly may exceed the room
ambient temperature.
2
Once rack mounted, enough air will still flow around the
machine.
3
The machine is placed straight in the correct horizontal
position.
4
You do not overload the circuit(s). When connecting the
machine to the supply circuit, overloading the circuits
might have a detrimental effect on overcurrent
protection and supply wiring. Refer to the appropriate
nameplate ratings for information. For example, for fuse
replacement, see the value printed on the product label.
Detachable rack ears can be
removed for desktop use
The machine is earthed (grounded) in a reliable way
and is connected only to an electricity socket with
grounding. Pay particular attention to supply
connections other than direct connections to the branch
circuit (for example, the use of power strips), and that
you use only the power cord that is supplied with the
machine.
If you are using a Kramer rack
adapter kit (for a machine that is not
19"), see the Rack Adapters user
manual for installation instructions
(you can download it at:
http://www.kramerelectronics.com)

Place the ears of the machine
against the rack rails, and insert
the proper screws (not
provided) through each of the
four holes in the rack ears.
Note that:
In some models, the front panel
may feature built-in rack ears
Always mount the machine in the
rack before you attach any cables or
connect the machine to the power

Connecting your 904 Power Amplifier
Connect your 904, as the example in Figure 2 illustrates:
1.
Connect a balanced stereo audio source (for example, a line level mixer) to
the Left and Right INPUT terminal block connectors.
2.
Connect the SPKR OUT block connector to a pair of loudspeakers, by
connecting the left loudspeaker to the “L+” and the “L-” terminal block
connectors, and the right loudspeaker to the “R+” and the “R-” terminal
block connectors. Do not Ground the loudspeakers.
3.
If required, connect the PHONES connector to a headphone set (pluggingin a headphone-set to the PHONES connector will disconnect the
loudspeakers).
4.
Connect the power cord1 (not shown in this illustration).
1 We recommend that you use only the power cord that is supplied with this machine
