The DA28R is a 2-in by 8-out distribution amp/router. Each input channel
accepts mic or line-level signals, and includes phantom power for condenser
microphones. All outputs are electronically balanced & floating line-level, with
600 ohm drive capability. Logic inputs allow routing of each input to specific
outputs via external contact-closures. The DA28R can operate as a flexible
2x8 distrubution amp, or as a complete 8-zone page-over-music routing
system. The DA28R carries a five-year warranty.
DA28R features include:
♦ two electronically balanced, differential mic/line inputs
♦ pad switch, trim control, & peak indicator on each input
♦ 24 volt phantom power switch on each input channel
♦ eight electronically balanced & floating line outputs
(600 ohm line output drive capability)

Output Connectors (Outputs 1~8): These plug-in barrier strips
provide the balanced line-level signals from Outputs 1~8. Output
isolation transformers (model IT-B) are available as a user installed
option (see Transformers on pg. 3). For balanced output, wire high
(+), low (-), and ground (d). For unbalanced output, wire high (+)
and ground (d), leaving (-) unconnected. Signal level will be
reduced by 6dB when outputs are unbalanced. Output 1~8 are
assigned signals from Channel 1 and/or Channel 2, by means of
DIP Switches & Logic Inputs (see below). From the factory, signals
from both input channels are assigned to all Outputs 1~8.
Input Connectors (Channels 1 & 2): These plug-in barrier strips
provide the balanced mic/line inputs for Channel 1 & Channel 2.
Input isolation transformers (model IT-A) are available as a user
installed option (see Transformers on pg. 3). For balanced input,
wire high (+), low (-), and ground (d). For unbalanced input, wire
high (+), and ground to both (d) & (-). Phantom power (+24VDC) is
available for condenser microphones (see DIP Switches below).
Trim (Channels 1 & 2): These screw-driver adjustable controls set
the channel gain (+24dB ~ +60dB) to compensate for different input
signal levels. For best performance, adjust these controls so the
channel +10 indicators flash only on occasional peaks. If input
signal level exceeds the normal operating range of the Trim control,
assign the corresponding channel Pad switch (see below). When
both inputs are assigned to common outputs, it may then be
necessary to reduce the Trim setting on one input, to establish a
proper level relationship (mix) between the two input signals.
Level (Outputs 1~8): These screw-driver adjustable controls
provide level adjustment for the respective outputs. Use the Level
controls individually to set the desired signal level for each sound
system or device being fed. The range of the Level controls is from
‘OFF’ (fully counter-clockwise) to a maximum of +16dB of gain (fully
clockwise). From the factory, all Output 1~8 Level controls are set
fully counter-clockwise, to ‘OFF’.
Pad (Channels 1 & 2): When depressed, these switches reduce
the signal level at the respective input channels by 40dB. Use the
Pad switches whenever signal level at the associated input channel
exceeds the normal operating range of the Trim control. Typically,
a line-level input signal will require use of the Pad.
Logic Inputs (Channels 1 & 2): This 25-pin Sub-D (female)
connector provides Logic Inputs 1~16 (on pins 1~16 respectively)
and a common ground (on pins 17~25). Logic Inputs allow signal
from Channel 1 & Channel 2 to be routed to the various outputs, via
external contact-closures. Logic Inputs 1~8 route Channel 1 to
Outputs 1~8 respectively. Logic Inputs 9~16 route Channel 2 to
Outputs 1~8 respectively. Logic Inputs perform either ‘muting’ or
‘unmuting’ functions, depending upon the position of the ‘Invert
Logic’ DIP Switches (see above). When ‘Invert Logic’ is assigned,
the associated input is normally muted at all outputs, and a contactclosure will ‘unmute’ the input at the desired output. From the
factory, ‘Invert Locic’ is not assigned, both inputs are normally
unmuted at all outputs, and a contact-closure will ‘mute’ the input at
the desired output. Logic Inputs allow a variety of input/output
routing (see Logic Inputs on pg. 3 & Applications on pgs. 4 & 5).
+10 Indicator (Channels 1 & 2): These red LEDs will light
whenever channel signal levels reach +10dB (8dB below clipping).
Use this feature to aid in adjusting the Trim controls (see above).
DIP Switches (Channels 1 & 2): These switches assign functions
to the input channels (when pushed up). Phantom turns on
+24VDC phantom power at the respective input, for use with
condenser microphones. CAUTION: Make sure phantom power is
turned off (switch down) when connecting line-level input signal.
Invert Logic reverses the operation of the respective Logic Inputs,
from ‘muting’ the associated channel at Outputs 1~8, to ‘unmuting’
the associated channel at Outputs 1~8 (see Logic Inputs below).
AC Power Cord: The power transformer provides 27 Volts AC to
the DA28R, and is detachable via a 5-pin DIN connector. The
DA28R has two internal ‘self-resetting’ fuses (there are no user
serviceable parts inside the unit). If the internal fuses blow, they will
attempt to re-set after a short period. However, this may be an
indication that the unit requires service.
On Indicator: When the power transformer is plugged in, and AC
power is applied to the DA28R, the red On indicator remains lit.

Logic Inputs: Logic Inputs 1~16 are on pins 1~16, and a common ground is on pins 17~25. Logic Inputs 1~8 affect routing of Channel 1
signal to Outputs 1~8, respectively. Logic Inputs 9~16 affect routing of Channel 2 signal to Outputs 1~8, respectively. Logic Inputs are
triggered by being shorted to ground, usually by means of external switches, relays, logic outputs, or other such contact-closures. However,
they may also be triggered permanently, via a ‘hard-wired’ short to ground (see Applications on pg. 5). Logic Inputs perform either ‘muting’
or ‘unmuting’ functions, depending upon the position of the ‘Invert Logic’ DIP Switches (see diagrams below). From the factory, ‘Invert Locic’
is not assigned on Channel 1 or Channel 2, and both inputs are normally unmuted (turned on) at all outputs. Contact-closures can then be
used to ‘mute’ (turn off) either input at selected outputs. When ‘Invert Logic’ is assigned, the associated input is normally muted (turned off)
at all outputs, and contact-closures can be used to ‘unmute’ (turn on) that input at selected outputs. A combination of ‘Invert Logic’ and
normal (non-inverted) logic operation allows Channels 1 & 2 to provide an override function. With a single switch wired to two corresponding
Logic Inputs (i.e…Logic Inputs 1 & 9), one input may be muted, while the other input is unmuted at the same output. This can be extremely
effective in multi-zone, page-over-music applications (see Applications on pgs. 4).

NOTE: The DA28R chassis must be dis-assembled before installing input/output transformers: 1) remove top panel (2 screws at bottom of
each side panel; 1 screw at top-center of rear panel). 2) remove screws from front panel (2 screws at each end). 3) remove hex-nuts from
rear panel (1 hex-nut each side of Logic Inputs connector). 4) remove mounting screws from circuit board (9 screws in front of rear panel
connectors; 2 screws behind each side of front panel). 6) gently pull circuit board forward (front panel comes forward; connectors exit rear
panel). 7) rotate front panel/circuit board upward, away from chassis (leave rear portion of circuit board in chassis, being careful not to strain
power cord connections).
Input Transformers: To install input transformers (see diagram at right): 1) locate
transformer positions T1 & T2 on the circuit board (circle areas located in front of input
connectors). T1 is for Channel 1 & T2 is for Channel 2. 2) un-solder & remove the 2
capacitors located within each of the appropriate circle areas. 3) install & solder an input
transformer at each of the appropriate circle areas (transformer pin 1, designated by a red dot,
must be inserted into the proper hole, designated by a square). Input isolation transformers
are model IT-A (P/N# 909-0010-01).
INPUT TRANSFORMERS
Output Transformers: To install output transformers (see diagram at right): 1) locate
transformer positions T101~T801 on the circuit board (rectangle areas located in front of output
connectors). T101 is for Output 1, T201 is for Output 2, etc. 2) un-solder & remove the 2
jumpers located within each of the appropriate rectangle areas. 3) install & solder an output
transformer at each of the appropriate rectangle areas (transformer pin 1, designated by a red
dot, must be inserted into the proper hole, designated by a square). Output isolation
transformers are model IT-B (P/N# 909-0019-00).
