The extremely efficient Class-D topography used in the ART SDA1 Studio Digital Amplifier delivers 200 watts per channel (at 4 ohms) in a compact, single rack space chassis. Taking advantage of the full potential of digital amplifier design, the SDA1 doesn't require noisy, dust collecting cooling fans in operation, making it the ideal solution for studio control rooms and installations.

The flat 20Hz to 20kHz frequency response makes the SDA1 the perfect choice for critical listening in studio environments. Balanced inputs and versatile multi-way binding post outputs ensure quick connectivity to any source and speaker combinations, including 70v commercial installation systems.

A solid steel and aluminum chassis design ensures maximum reliability. Recessed 'pop-up' detented attenuator knobs deter uninvited users adjusting volume settings in install applications.

I'm using it on the road for small PA gigs - which may not be it's intended use. However, it provides clean signal without fan noise and doesn't add much weight to my rack. Plenty of power for rooms of 100 people. I was happy to find that the amp has enough power to run a pair of wedge monitors for rock gigs as well. Sounds good in stereo. Seems punchier when bridged.

I have not ventured into digital amps till this purchase...my aging Roland sp 240 needs pots and a switch...is repairable...but is also over 30 yrs old...decided to try something new...Art amp here has no fan...sounds really nice and quiet with my classic Yamaha ns 10 m Near field speakers..they actually have never sounded better...very full and detailed,though flat and accurate....they actually appear to be a good match...and lots of studios still have NS 10 M's....
