For sale: SONY TA-DM1000ES is a pre amp side of Sony’s ES Digital Signal Transfer (DST) System, which allowed the user to send audio/video to up to 16 locations around house. At each remote location (room) one would need a keypad, remote and a TA-DL100ES amplifier (which I have several). The signal is distributed by means of home’s existing coax cable. This device retailed for $1699 and also acted as control center and converted inputs and transferred them in digital format to each station.
For that reason this SONY also functions as a simple audio preamplifier and that’s what I am offering it for here. SONY has 8 channel selection buttons (Tuner, CD1, CD2, Tape1, DAT/Tape2, TV/Aux, Video1, video2, video3) and an output that is volume controlled. There are also bass and treble, balance and mute controls. Unit has a built-in headphone amplifier with gold-plated jack. There is a tape loop with source selection buttons. There is also an Adapter-loop, which allows you to insert an equalizer or processor in signal path. Adapter-loop bypasses tone control stack. Alternatively, you can use Adapter-loop input as Direct-source input (e.g. for your phono preamp). CD1 input also accepts optical SPDIF signal (Toslink), which allows SONY function as a 16bits DAC as well. (You can link your PC to it using USB ->Toslink adapter). Lastly, TA-DM1000ES provides six switched AC-outlets, which one can use to power-on/off source(s) automatically.
SO, use it as a pre-amplifier and ignore all that other stuff out the back related to digital signal transfer. This SONY is crafted in Japan and built quality and cosmetics are very good. I have tested preamp functions all are good, and cannot test DST or any other functions. Sold as-is.
Thank you for looking.
