yoTrakkz's review"affordable amp"

Art HeadAmp 6pro
I needed a headphone amp for a recent multi-tracking project. I read several positive reviews about the ART HeadAmp6Pro and made the decision to purchase. This is a decision that I do not regret in the least. It is an absolute fantastic headphone amp. The price and the quality make this a no brainier. It can even be chained with more ART HeadAmp6Pro units if you need more than six channels.

With the ART HeadAmp6Pro I can put myself and the music track in the center and the other parts hard left or right on the board, and then get a feed from AUX 1 and AUX 2 outputs to the headphone amp. Each of us now can get as much of our own part we need. The individual volume and pan control are exactly what we needed. The EQ feature is a plus also. If I need to add another feed to a specific channel, I can do that also.

Overall, The more me feature is great and the thru ability is a nice feature to add more of the same. It is very solidly built and the price is incredible. This is a lot of bang for buck! It works great hooked up to my mackie 24x8 during tracking sessions in my home studio. This is much better than the Presonus version of this. Better quality and sound. I highly recommend this, its very affordable and comes right out of the box with everything you need. The manual was easy to understand, its plug and play no need for a manual on a headphone amp. There is enough room for all of your headphones and they will all be synced in a ready to go. Not too mention they will all sound great, some other products will take the stereo sound and die it down on some of the extra jacks. But not with this!

Art HeadAmp 6pro
It is a 6-channel headphone amplifier 1U rackmount. On each channel, you can connect two headsets: 1 front and 1 rear panel.

Key features:
- With a 6.3 mm stereo jack additional input on the front panel to inject unexpected sound source. In this case, the main input sound is cut on the headphone outputs distributed on the rest and cascaded output but without this task: that between the sound is output by the input by the headphones.
- With adjustable input gain and level meter to the main entrance
- With as possible, per channel:
* 1 entry secondary auxiliary stereo jack at the rear (the rear RARE!)
* Adjust the stereo balance between left and right
* If an audio source is connected to a second auxiliary input, the balance adjustment is used to adjust the mix between the main source and the auxiliary source
* Treble and bass
* Selection of listening in stereo, mono L, mono and mono L + R R
* VU Meter
- For the input set - main output: XLR and TRS 6.3 mm.
- For 12 headphone outputs: 6.3 mm stereo jack
- For secondary audio inputs: 6.3 mm stereo jack
- Dynamic Range: 101 dB

This headphone amp is one of the best in this category, that is to say, with ability to mix an auxiliary secondary source individually per channel. Perfect for example, allow a musician to listen to an electronic metronome separately while he plays his instrument and another musician to listen to separately source that serves as a standard for tuning his instrument without these auxiliary sources is injected into the mix or to the amp for monitoring and / or scene. Me, I use this function to adjust the tuning end when scanning analog tape: I use a small sound generator, the Yamaha MU15 (but it can be any) as standard, precisely the Jumping on the secondary auxiliary input concerned.

The sound seems incredibly clear and precise, each musician (when there are 6 or less) or each pair of musicians (when there are between 7 and 12) can individually adjust the mix, bass and treble their convenience.

6 channels: for my needs is too much, 2-3 channels with ability to mix a secondary audio source channel individually by me would suffice. on the other hand, as I have limited space in my home studio, a half-rack version would have suited me better, but hey, apart from that, I am happy with this product.

Strengths, in order of importance to me:
- 101 dB dynamic range :-) ))
- Possibility for each mixer channel independent secondary auxiliary source
- Vertical and sensitive Views meters to -51 dB, RARE! :-) )) In fact, the meters competitors only go up to -30 dB to date (July 2014)
- Possibility for each channel to listen to the sound in stereo, mono L, mono and mono L + R R
- Treble and bass individually per channel

Points "gray" (objectively, I do not know if it is a strong or a weak spot):
- Seen meters staggered as if it acted digital (LEDs display -51, -42, -33, -25, -18, -12, -6 and 0 dB) while it is actually analog. But their colors (green -51 to -18 dB, -12 for yellow and red and -6 dB for dB -0) are indeed seen analog meters ^ ^
- Auxiliary secondary inputs are on the rear panel, RARE :-)

- The transition from state stereo, single L, R or mono mono L + R is not done properly, it causes loss of contacts: damage

Do not confuse this model with ART HeadAmp 6, its predecessor (The ART HeadAmp is a mini headphone amplifier 4 channels). It does not adjust the treble and bass separately by channel but against its secondary auxiliary input located on the rear AND front, always per channel, RARE! :-) )) And it is also possible to listen in stereo or mono channel.

Its closest competitors:
- Samson S-Phone: Only 4 channels, 1 headphone channel, taken by secondary auxiliary channel on the front panel can adjust the treble and bass channel, listen to stereo or mono channel and possible linker each channel to another destination (to another headphone amp for example) - RARE!.
- Behringer HA4700: Only 4 channels, 3 channel headphones - RARE taken second auxiliary channel front, listen to stereo or mono channel and can adjust the treble and bass channel!.'s review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Farewell Behringer Welcome ART"

Art HeadAmp 6pro
* I viend to buy it for my 2 remlpacer Behringer.
* I tried the Behringer HA4700 POWERPLAY PRO-XL (very bad breath and snoring level (50Hz) but not expensive).
* I also tested the ALESIS MULTIMIX 6 CUE, it has a good sound but no settings weaker than the ART treble EQ bass / and air knobs.
* Pros: The sound quality, no breath no snoring.
* Cons: Nothing so far.
* Report Quality / Price: yes it is a little pricey but worth it.
* Yes, I'll even buy a second.

Alain en 57's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Reserved for mechanics!"

Art HeadAmp 6pro
Yes I tried other models

What I like least is that we should leave the toolbox to remove one of the two mounting ears of reinforcements racking (because of the fineness of sheet metal facade) that it passes between the racks and rails to finally racker! LAMENTABLE, and when I say it is terrible to have tried several different brands of racks to draw the same conclusion so ... For the record, YAMAHA did the same thing and taking for example the old GC2020 they at least had the intelligence to panhead screws so that do not exceed the brackets that they had the screw holes with a cutting course ! Like what progress ... So for an investment of traveling to meditate at the risk of the reinforcement without its ears folded to use fixed no prob!

For this neglect mechanical absolutely unforgivable in this age or mobility needs are growing more and thus weakening the material I put 5/1O for a machine that usurps his qualifiquatif PRO!

Art HeadAmp 6pro
How long have you been using?
I use it for three months in rehearsal (four players) since we all played with headphones is paradise and spring of répets without head or ears ordnance. A real luxury to be able to hear any moderate volume.
I also use it for home recording and listening is really nice.
Frequency three times a week.

Did you try many other models before buying it?
Yes the presonus HP4 (no comment ...) I learned about many forums to choose finally a model. And it was not obvious. I took the time and I do not really regret it.

What is so special that you like most and least?
6 independent outputs. The EQ's on each slice and especially the quality of bass and treble even at high volume. Power develops. Zero breath.
The appearance is robust and strong enough potares. It is not plastic like some ...
Least: For the moment there is not one!

How do you rate the quality / price?
very good for this quality preamp.

With experience, you do again this choice?
Without a moment's hesitation.

If you have any questions do not hesitate to ask me for advice.

Art HeadAmp 6pro
A dj is a repetition and two together
Just replace a Behringer pro4700.
I hesitate between ART and Presonus.

What I DCID are EQ (bass and treble) by simply very useful to correct the diffrence between some small headsets or monitors ears ..
I did not want the Behringer because he is too poor in sound. I wanted something more professional. (Not just in name)

What I like? The sound and especially under load. Nothing s'croule (neither quality or power) when you plug the 6 high level outputs on various headphones. The bass and treble are prcisent purposes. Follow my eyes .....

For 195 euros (32.5 euros per slice) is among the best market price.
Issue price is excellent quality then.
