PRAGMATIC ANNOUNCES THE DMS2.1T Distributed Music System

Unique technology provides an affordable yet high performance solution for larger applications

Pragmatic Communications Systems, the leader in audio/video control and signal distribution, debuted at NSCA, the highly innovative DMS2.1T Distributed Music System. It is based on the company's popular TPATM Twisted Pair Audio System for audio signal distribution over simple twisted pair wires and the MBATM Mono-Block audio amplifier. These two products have been available individually but until now never in a system package.

According to Pragmatic founder and President, Prasanna Shah, "the DMS2.1T is the ideal choice for an affordable solution to send high quality audio signals over standard twisted pair wires in a large commercial or industrial arena. The transmitter comes in a compact rack-mount enclosure and has a built-in multi-channel audio switcher that can be controlled by Infrared remote or RS232/RS485 connection." Shah went on to add, "one transmitter can drive up to 32 remote receivers. The basic remote receiver connects to category 5 wires, has a rotary volume control and uses the MBAT Amplifier in a single junction box to power the speakers."

The SuperTranZT circuit utilized in the DMS2.1TM eliminates ground loops, hum, and noise pick up. For plug and play simplicity, both the transmitter and receiver have a standard RJ45 connector for the twisted pair wires. The receivers can be daisy chained up to 32 listening areas on a 3000 ft. long category 5 cable. The units operate on standard a 12VDC power supply and an operating temperature range of -40 degree Celsius to +85 degree Celsius for operation in harsh environment. The audio signal-to-noise ratio is about 96 dB, 20KHz of audio bandwidth and less than 0.1% distortion. The receiver has a high-performance, high-efficiency 24-watt amplifier that can drive speakers directly.

The DMS2.1T transmitter and receiver units are available now with a suggested list price of $399 and $225 respectively. This DMS2.1TM is part of Pragmatics' "Affordable Elegance" product line.
