    Whirlwind DA2 reviews

    DA-2 - Audio Distribution Amplifier is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality and value I needed an audio DA with XLR jacks for quick reconnections. This Whirlwind unit gave the best value for features and quality. Audio specs are very good, and the combine feature turns a stereo 1X4 into a mono 1X8. Indicator lights and headphone jack are bonuses. The best thing of all is the enormous output gain available if needed.
