\"Great all purpose amp for it\'s size. but not suitable for audiophile studio use, due to fan noise.\"
In studio use, the amp is badly let down by the fan noise. Although the fan is quiet -
(ART claim whisper quiet.) But it\'s debatable that you would want anyone to whisper through your mix. during more quieter/ambient passages of music the fan can be distracting. From the advertising you would assume the fan is off/silent until heat builds up and the fan kicks in. This is not the case. There are two modes for the fan. The first mode is quiet always on the second is full blast venting when your running things at high volume. Obviously the later is no problem. But if you mix quietly and occasionally turn the volume up to inspect your mix. The fan is always there. You just have to hope it\'s in key with your mix.
Also the blue LED is blinding and very annoying. recommend disconnection or reduce the brightness with a resistor.
very impressed with the build â€“ nice big heavy torriod, good heat sinks, all well constructed. just let down by the fan.
little harsh in the mids and tops, but not nasty but still pleasant and musical. low end, is detailed, but a very tiny bit of lower mid making it 10% boxy sounding. nice stereo spread. overall a really good detailed amp at a good price.
Ease of Use:
easy to use everything you need.
emailed about the fan noise to see if i could replace it with something quieter - got no reply from ART
I would recommend buying this amp for installations, PA use or guitar backline. Or studio work that\'s mainly medium to loud volume work.
