The AMP203 is a revolutionary mini stereo amplifier, featuring network input through Dante™ or AES67 providing a complete media networking solution to distribute uncompressed audio via standard Ethernet networks with near-zero latency while allowing all other data to be connected on the same network.

Various DSP functionalities are implemented in the AMP203. This allows all configurations to be made in AUDAC Touch™ 2 or via RS485 and Ethernet, making it a fully-fletched 2 x 30W amplifier. The output connector has been implemented using a 4-pin terminal block connector, featuring an output power of 30W per channel and 60W when bridged.

The 3-pin terminal block stereo line output connector gives the option of looping the AMP203 to the next amplifier.

Using PoE (Power over Ethernet) this extremely power-efficient amplifier receives both power and signal through a single networking cable, this way flexibility is maximized while needed cabling is kept at a minimum.

The compact convection cooled enclosure eliminates any humm or buzz otherwise caused by a fan. Various optional mounting brackets are available like the MBS1xx series, which allow it to be mounted under a desk, in a closet, on the wall, on top of a dropped ceiling or to a 19" equipment rack. This proves that the AMP203 is the perfect solution for compact to medium-sized applications in corporate, hospitality or retail environments.

Decentralize your system

Thanks to the multifunctional use of the AMP203 in combination with the AUDAC Touch™ application it is possible to create a decentralized multi-zone system. By simply connecting the AMP203 to the local network and connecting the loudspeakers, a new zone can be introduced to your system.

TouchLink™ setup example

TouchLink™ is an ingenious system that can be used for creating virtual zones by linking multiple TouchLink™ compatible devices with each other. In AUDAC Touch™ 2 you can select multiple devices or amplifier channels that should react to the user as one zone.

A typical application example is a large open area where multiple (compatible) amplifiers are used. When they are virtually linked, all devices or amplifier channels with the same TouchLink™ assigned zone will be following each other’s settings (including volume, input, muting, ...).

It means, if they are all installed throughout the same area, they all will be simultaneously operated by one single control (e.g. volume fader) from the AUDAC Touch™ 2 app. Additionally, a wall panel which is physically connected to one of the linked devices will automatically control all the linked devices.

A number shall be assigned as a TouchLink™ zone (e.g. 1, 2, 3, ...) and all devices with the identical TouchLink™ ID will virtually work as one zone.

  • How can you control the AMP203 with the Touch™ 2 app over a WiFi network?

    To control the AMP203 with Audac Touch 2.0, the system uses multicast UDP packets to communicate. Depending on your set-up this throughput speed can be limited on WiFi networks.

    To solve this network limitation you can configure a multicast to unicast translation on your access point.

  • How is the power consumption of amplifiers tested & indicated?

    As the power consumption of an amplifier, strongly depends on how hard the amplifier is driven, measurements are provided for various loads: idle, 1/8 of average full power, 1/3 of average full power, and full power.

    Idle 
    Current draw at idle or with very low signal level

    1/8 Power: Pink Noise
    Amplifiers are tested using pink noise signals to simulate real-world speech and music signals.  It approximates operating with music or voice with light clipping and represents the amplifier's typical "clean" maximum level, without audible clipping. This 1/8 power signal provides a very good approximation of how hard an amplifier would be driven by typical real-world speech/music signals, assuming those signals were being driven as loud as possible without clipping the amplifier.

    1/3 Power: Pink Noise
    1/3 Power Pink Noise is similar to 1/8 Power Pink Noise, except that it is a significantly more powerful input signal. It approximates operating with music or voice with very heavy clipping and a very compressed dynamic range. This 1/3 power signal provides an approximation of how hard an amplifier would be driven by typical real-world speech/music signals, assuming those signals were being driven loud enough to clip the amplifier heavily, and produce severe, audible distortion.

    Full Power
    Current draw at full power is measured with a sine wave at its maximum possible level. However, it does not represent any real-world operating condition and represents the absolute extremes that an amplifier could ever experience.
