The DS-001, a compact, highly adaptable, 200W cutting edge, audiophile Class D, power amplifier with world beating audio performance.

Measuring only 130×215×41 mm, the DS-001 power size and power weight ratios are unequalled and effectively bullet-proof construction ensures superb reliability with audio performance belying both its size and weight. Its transparency and astounding levels of resolution make it ideal for critical monitoring applications. The ultra compact dimensions enable the unit to be used in free standing, rack mounted, wall mounted, or speaker mounted configurations, enabling the highly effective ‘power-packing’ of any number of compact monitor designs, especially useful for free standing surround sound, or console mounted monitor positioning. Accessories include a rack mount kit that creates up to eight individual channels.

The DS-001 produces an astonishing 200W into 8 ohms with a flat frequency curve under all loads due to its intelligent single feedback loop circuit that senses the loudspeaker’s load and adjusts the response accordingly, making output impedance extremely low and bettering many larger, audiophile ‘Class A’ analogue designs. Both power supply and amplifier are highly efficient with the amplifier delivering 92% efficiency reducing current usage and both exhibit extremely low radiated and conducted EMI - perfect for low noise environments. The extremely compact power supply features over current protection and large electrolytic buffer capacitors which allow for large current delivery and ample dynamic headroom.

Available for 230v or 115v operation with loudspeaker output connections via the robust Neutrik® SpeakON NL4 series. Audio input is via balanced XLR, mains via IEC and gain adjustment easily accessible on the front panel (min 16dB, centre detent 22dB, max 33dB).

The DS-001 also features as the significant upgrade to the new DB1S-A II and TB2S-A II compact ATL™ nearfield monitors, providing a major improvement in audio performance with cleaner, faster more neutral presentation across the full bandwidth. This innovative ultra low noise design also offers an increase in power taking it from 100W to 200W. Teaming the DS-001 with PMC’s highly accurate ATL™ (Advanced Transmission Line) bass loading system, produces a supremely accurate frequency response creating the ideal tool for discerning professional.

ATL Tecnology


  • Greater detail & more natural
  • A full, rich sound at any volume level
  • Deeper bass from a smaller cabinet

The source of PMC’s legendary natural, realistic sound is the Advanced Transmission Line (ATL) bass-loading technology, professionally proven all around the world.

ATL uses energy generated by the bass unit in a much more intelligent, efficient way than speaker designs based on ported or sealed boxes.
