    As reviewed by JR on 7/5/2010

    This amp has loads of great features. One of favorites is the retractable controls. You can push in the volume controls so that they don't move from their positions during performance or while transporting. Plus, there is an additional tamper cover that can be placed over the front that can only be removed with a phillips screwdriver. Same goes with the stereo/mono switch on the back and the ground lift switch. Heavy duty casing...this thing is like a rock! Really bright blue LED on the front shows you've got power and signal meter LED show you've got signal. The only additional feature that would be nice to have is an actual level meter for each channel, but you could find that in higher priced amps.

  • Wanted a small and light amp for monitors

    As reviewed by George on 4/12/2011

    I was looking for an affordable, single space, light, rack mountable amp to power our stage monitors from our un-powered mixer. After doing a little research I chose the ART Sla1. Upon testing the amp I was very impressed with the headroom and flatness of the sound. I got to use it at an outdoor park venue powering two 15 inch stage monitors very successfully. I tested the amp with two 8 ohm bottoms and a Sansamp Tech 21 with my bass and found it to sound excellent. Bridged, it would probably make a great small venue Bass amp with the right preamp. I feel that this amp would be sufficient to power mains at a small venue with an un-powered mixer without any trouble at all. The only complaint is the lack of 1/4 jacks for the output as your only option is the binding post/ banana plug. Very solid little amp!
