The SMD Distortion Detector Plus (DD-1+) is a powerful tool designed to meet the needs of audio installers. Its primary purpose is to ensure that the gain of an audio amplifier is correctly set to match the output level of the source unit, with precision and speed. Additionally, it can be used to detect distortion in the audio signal caused by poorly designed or malfunctioning audio equipment.

One of the biggest advantages of the DD-1+ over the original DD-1+ is the ability to set audio system gain overlap continuously. With a range of 0.0dB to 15.0dB in 0.1dB steps, installers have more flexibility in achieving optimal audio performance. The tool can also check the gain overlap of an audio system without making any adjustments to the existing settings, ensuring that the system remains unchanged after installation. Furthermore, it verifies that the gain overlap hasn't been tampered with, providing peace of mind for both installers and customers.

The DD-1+ features a patent-pending Distortion Detection system, along with a digital micro-controller and proprietary firmware, delivering accurate and reliable results. With a maximum input of 200V, which is the same as the DD-1 HV, it can handle high voltage levels without compromising performance. Additionally, it incorporates a quasi-RMS voltmeter that can detect clipping at any frequency, enabling installers to identify and address audio distortions effectively.

The package includes the Distortion Detector PLUS (DD-1+), a protective silicon rubber boot that ensures durability, a calibrated test tone CD for accurate measurement, a harness for easy connection, and a comprehensive manual to guide users through the setup process. Additionally, the pride of ownership is included, knowing that you possess a precision piece of equipment that will provide reliable service for many years if treated properly.

With a distortion detection trigger level of over 1.0% Harmonic Distortion and a guaranteed operating range of 1.2Vrms to 200Vrms (equivalent to 40,000 Watts at 1ohm), the DD-1+ offers exceptional performance. It features an auto-shut off timer that activates 8-10 minutes after the ON button is pressed, conserving battery life. Furthermore, it includes a low battery LED indicator that triggers when the battery voltage drops below 6.5Vdc, ensuring uninterrupted usage.

The DD-1+ comes in a compact shipping box measuring 9 x 6 x 2 inches and weighing 2lbs, making it convenient to transport and store. For detailed instructions and further information, refer to the owner's manual and the DD-1+ Test Disc Read Me documents available in PDF format.

Choose the SMD Distortion Detector Plus (DD-1+) - DLR, a reliable and efficient tool that will assist you in achieving optimum audio performance, detecting distortion, and delivering an exceptional audio experience.
