«  It would take me exactly the same thing but half-rack :-) »

Published on 07/18/14 at 02:17
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 :-)

Weakness:
- 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!.
