Following the launch of the multichannel V Series amplifiers for commercial installations, Dynacord has announced the U Series — a budget-friendly line of ultra-compact, single-channel mixer amplifiers and power amplifiers.

Dynacord U240 amplifierAimed at installers and consultants specifying background music and paging applications that do not require life safety compliance, complex networking or higher SPLs, the U Series delivers high-quality amplification for single zones in high-impedance installations in smaller commercial spaces such as cafes, shops and offices. With versatile power output options, the U Series ensures tailored performance for specific needs.

The series comprises six models – four mixer amplifiers with 30W, 120W and 240W output, and two with 120W and 240W output. The U Series can be deployed in standalone applications as well as being integrated into existing installations, while the power amplifier models are a great option to be used as auxiliary amplifiers in larger system designs – for instance, when new zones require amplification.

U Series mixer amplifiers provide comfortable front access for main gain, channel levels and tone adjustments. Two mic/line and two aux inputs are available to connect external devices such as microphones, a paging station or music players. The models can drive high-Z or low-Z loudspeaker lines, feature phantom power for the microphone inputs and a switchable 120Hz high-pass filter. Also included are an emergency override input for integration with a PA/VA system, a chime when used with a paging station and vox ducking. The configuration is performed with DIP switches on the rear of the units; a contact closure port for remote power on/off functionality is also available.

All controls for the two power amplifier models are securely located at the back, designed to prevent unintended or unauthorised changes, adhering to a ‘set and forget’ usability principle.

Combined with the Evid commercial loudspeakers from Dynacord’s sister brand Electro-Voice, the U Series facilitates offers cost-effective and high-quality audio installations with enhanced ambiance and intelligibility.

The installation process does not require advanced technical skills. At a single rack unit high and half a rack width wide, U Series units require minimal space and provide various installation options, accommodating rackmount, table-top or under-table installation. The included brackets facilitate single or dual rackmount options as well as unobtrusive installation wherever needed, such as under counters. If needed, two amplifiers can fit in a single rack unit when rack-mounted side by side, efficiently using space and doubling the channel count and output power.

All Dynacord electronics undergo extensive testing at Dynacord’s Reliability Test Center (RTC) in Straubing, Germany, where all electronics endure rigorous testing to ensure their ability to withstand extreme thermal conditions, physical stress tests and long-term heavy use when driving speakers at maximum loads. As a result, U Series amplifiers are equipped with a sophisticated protection package even under challenging conditions. On board are an overload and short-circuit protection and a limiter to prevent accidental overdriving.

The Dynacord U Series will be available in Q3 2024.
