DA100 Distribution Amplifier
The DA100 is an antenna distribution amplifier for the CAD Audio WX100 wireless receiver.
The DA100 is designed for use in pro audio applications such as audio-video integration and
musical/theatrical performance.
The DA100 features a net 0dB amplification eliminating split-attenuation when used in
conjunction with the WX100 receiver. Minimal amplification is applied to reduce the risk of
unwanted intermodulation interference.
The onboard power distribution system conveniently distributes 12V power for up to four of
the WX100 receivers. The power switch on the DA100 also controls the WX100 receiver power
when connected to the power distribution hub.
All antenna connectors are BNC-type for easy plug and play compatibility.
Antennas are not supplied with the DA100. Whip antennas supplied with the WX100 may be
used and can be front mounted utilizing the ANT105 mounting kit. Additional high-performance
antenna options are available from CAD Audio.
The DA100 comes complete with RF patch cables for four receivers, rack ears and the
appropriate power cables for patching and connecting an AC power source.

Individuals with cardiac pacemakers and other similar medical devices should consult with their physician before
using any RF devices. Although the output level of this wireless system is below 50 milliwatts, the proximity of
the transmitter to the implant device could pose a threat.
As with any wireless product, environmental conditions can reduce or in some cases prohibit a successful
connection between the transmitter and the receiver. Contained within the manual of the WX100 is a list of
trouble shooting and best practices guide for using our microphones and accessories.
Most users of CAD Audio wireless products in the United States do not need a license for operation. However, the
rules for unlicensed operation state that this device must not operate in excess of 50 milliwatts, must not cause
harmful interference to other wireless devices, and must accept interference received from other devices.
Purchasers should also be aware that the FCC is currently evaluating use of wireless microphone systems, and
these rules are subject to change. Wireless products meeting CAD factory standards adhere to these rules. The
FCC reserves the right to change these rules at any time.
For more information contact the FCC at 1-888- CALL-FCC (TTY: 1-888-TELL-FCC) or visit the FCC’s wireless
microphone website at:
