Belgian pro audio manufacturer AUDAC is proud to release the brand new AMP203. 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 AMP203’s brand new TouchLink™ technology provides the perfect solution to create virtual zones by linking multiple TouchLink™ compatible devices such as the AMP203 with each other. In AUDAC Touch™ 2 you can select the devices or amplifier channels that should react to the user as one zone. To make the installation even easier, a PoE injector can be used. This way the AMP203 is connected and powered using only one CAT cable.

Once connected to the network, AUDAC Touch™ 2 will automatically discover your new device and allows you to get a complete overview of your entire installation. Thanks to the innovative app you can easily control each zone separately from the palm of your hand. The AMP203 will be compatible with all versions starting from AUDAC Touch™ 2.2.2

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.

Thanks to the digital signal transfer, crosstalk, interference from other electrical equipment, or signal degradation over long cable runs doesn’t harm the audio signal. This way the best possible audio quality is guaranteed. In addition, Dante systems are highly scalable, installation possibilities range from one device paired to a computer to highly complex networks with hundreds of audio channels.
