The DA5 features 11 sought-after guitar amplifier tones, ranging from pristine clean, to classic overdrive, to full-on shred, all of which can be dialed up instantly. 11 single and combination effects are built-in, including auto wah, compressor, delay, reverb, flanger, phaser, chorus, tremolo and rotary, plus noise reduction. Players have the ability to adjust the parameters of every effect.
The DA5 is loaded with practical features, including a unique power select switch that lets the player select one of three values: 5 Watts, 1.5 Watts or 0.5 Watts. This allows for maximum cranked tone and feel at bedroom volume levels. A ¼" AUX/MP3 input can accept line level signals for connecting a mixer or CD/MP3 player, and a separate MIC input with its own level control completes the package. All three inputs may be used simultaneously, enabling the DA5 to serve as a complete rehearsal amplification solution.
A VOX 6.5-inch, 8-Ohm speaker impressively recreates all 11 amp tones, while a headphone/line output can be used for private or late-night practicing or for direct connection to a mixer or recorder. The headphone/line output adds cabinet emulation and character for a sense of “air” and depth.
The ultra-portable DA5 weighs in at just over 7.5 pounds and can be powered by either the included AC adapter or by six C batteries for legendary VOX tone on the go.
The VOX DA5 is currently available in all color options at a U.S. MSRP of $190.00.
