The ART HeadAmp6 is a fully-featured, 6-channel stereo headphone amplifier that includes six auxiliary inputs to allow separate "more-me" mixes on each headphone channel. Each output channel has a dual function Balance Control which will pan between the left & right input of the main signal bus, or vary the mix between the main stereo signal bus and the auxiliary input for that respective channel.

Each output channel on the ART HeadAmp6 headphone amp includes one front- and two rear-panel stereo 1/4" TRS headphone jacks for ease of installation and quick patching capability. It has Mono, Mute L, and Mute R select buttons, and on each channel you can select between four operating modes-Stereo, Mono Left, Mono Right, and Mono Both (Left & Right)-for versatile monitoring solutions. Independent output level controls on each channel of the 6-channel headphone amp personalize monitoring levels.

The ART HeadAmp6's input options include XLR and 1/4-inch TRS balanced inputs with matching Thru jacks for bridging multiple headphone amps. An additional front-panel stereo 1/4" TRS Direct In jack for quick patch override of the rear panel inputs is included for quick insertion of any stereo source. Master Volume control sets the main signal bus level. The headphone amp's eight-segment precision LED level metering on the main bus and four-segment indicators on each output channel provide visual feedback of the signal level at all key points.

Good quality and great value

By Steve

Comments about Art Headamp6 6-Channel Headphone Amplifier:

I considered both the HeadAmp6 and the HeadAmp6 Pro. I ultimately bought this one because it has its individual aux ins on the front instead of the back, which I consider handier for occasional "more me" mix requests. The Pro model has a few more meter segments as well as separate eq on each amp. Having eq sounds tempting, but I'm afraid that could just be a can of worms - it's enough of a challenge just getting levels and mixes right for each band member. I've had the HeadAmp6 for a couple weeks now and so far I'm lovin' it! Seems to have ample power to cleanly drive headphones to levels well beyond what any human would actually desire. My only quibble: The balance knob on channel 1 was mounted just a hair counter-clockwise so that when set at the center detent, the knob marking doeesn't perfectly align with the panel marking. I can live with it, but my OCD will ensure that I always notice this flaw every time I use it. Overall - good quality and great value for the $150 price!

Works fine, if you only want mono mixes

Comments about Art Headamp6 6-Channel Headphone Amplifier:

On the 2 samples I bought, the stereo image was canted ~15% to the right, when using either the XLR or Aux inputs. You can correct this by using the balance control, as long as you're not plugging a stereo input into the Aux input (because, then the balance knob controls the mix between Main and Aux inputs and not the L/R balance). Punching Mono centered the image perfectly. And it wasn't my mixer's output, because I plugged the headphone output (the image is centered when plugging headphones directly into the mixer) into Aux and the same thing happened. I returned both units and bought the ART HeadAmp 6 Pro, which worked perfectly. I would have preferred to have the Aux inputs on the front panel, but it was more important to have proper stereo imaging. I'm hoping for ART's sake that it was a problem with a specific batch of HeadAmp 6s, and not inherent in the circuitry. It's a fine unit otherwise.
