WNAMM08: Headphone Amp Revamp


SM Pro Audio are showcasing the new HP6E multi-channel headphone amplifier. They tell us that the HP6E is a high-quality, powerful, flexible, and reliable six channel headphone amplifier housed in a sturdy 1RU 19� standard rack-mountable metal chassis.
The HP6E boasts a variety of improvements over the original HP6 including improved frequency response, additional power, digital control of input selection, and a fifth mix input. Built in flash memory has also been added to allow for last state memory recall of the input selection for each channel... perfect, say SM Pro Audio, for saving critical studio time.

The HP6E’s flexible design allows any of the four available audio input source signals to be routed to any of the 6 Class A headphone amps provided on the HP6E. An additional fifth stereo signal can also be mixed into each individual headphone channel. This allows for endless application support including studio monitoring, live monitoring, in ear individual mixing, signal distribution, and more.
Features:
  • 10 TRS inputs, 5 stereo channels
  • 6 class A headphone amplifiers
  • Auto to sensing switch mode power supply
  • Built in flash memory for last state memory recall
  • Mix control for each amplifier output
  • Nominal output @ 32Ohm 600mw per channel
