What's the best bang for the bucks? I need one who can plug 4 headphones.
How many, and what type of aux lines have you got available to push a headphone system?
Only one stereo mix.... or 2 mono mix... 2 x 1/4 jack
no one can help? just info...
I have used Berinfinger(very noisy but cheap) and I presently have an ART which is less than impressive but inherited. I know Rane makes a very good unit that you might find used on feebay. What are you coming out of?
I own a 4-channel Berinfinger that jg mentions, and a Rane 6-channel I got used off feebay for around 100 bucks.
The 1st is very noisy indeed.
I like the Rane b/c my Firestudio option of sending multiple cues (mixes), and the Rane supports 6 mono/stereo inputs,
each routed to its own individual channel -
whereas the Berinfinger (I like that!) only accepts a single stereo input.
Drummer wants more vocals? Bassist wants more drums? Guitarist only wants to hear himself? Done.
I have the Rane that I use for mobile/remote sessions... and highly recommend it.
Thanks a lot everyone... I'll look at the Rane
OZ Music used to sell something called a Q-Mix. I think Mackie bought them out... and renamed the mixer HMx-56.
4 balanced TRS Aux inputs + LR Stereo ins to 6 headphone mixes. Should be cheap if you can find one on ebay or Craigslist.
Furman still makes that sort of thing too.
I have one of those Behringer 4 preamp headphone splitters - and bang for the buck I didn't see anything that comes close. For lightweight portable recording the thing is amazing; fits in your pocket and cost about 35$. Noise wasn't a problem, in fact the audio quality was pretty good.
