With the introduction of the PowerPlay Pro-8 HA8000 (price $159.99), Behringer releases yet another addition to its line of headphone amplifier distribution systems. The new HA8000 is a professional multi-purpose headphone amplifier for a variety of stage and studio applications in a single rack space that offers eight independent stereo high-power amplifiers with signal routing and mixing functions. The HA8000 is available in the 4th quarter 2003.
The PowerPlay Pro-8 HA8000's eight independent high-power amplifier sections with two stereo main inputs for two independent mixes are accessible from all eight channels. Eight independent direct inputs provide up to eight individual stereo mixes. The direct input connector on each channel facilitates easy connection of any sound source. Additionally, paralleled main outputs allow cascading several headphone amplifiers, while accurate 8-digit LED output meters for each channel enable precise level control. A mono/stereo switch per channel provides more flexibility. Ultra low-noise 4580 operational amplifiers and high-quality detented potentiometers from ALPS ensure superb audio results and outstanding performance. In addition, servo-balanced, gold-plated XLR and 1/4" TRS inputs and outputs provide clean signal transfer rounding out the HA8000's professional feature set. A shielded toroidal power transformer guarantees noiseless operation and low magnetic interference.
