    opinions about the budget gear i can only afford. ive got about 250 dollars for a rack unit or whatever that can split monitor 1.4 inch outs from my pa and power three headphones for my three players. ive looked at behringer cause its cheap. id like some opinions on some other brands and headphone brands as well mid range price max quality for a device around 250 bucks that splits and powers headphones from my pa/mixer

    When you buy cheap gear, you don't usually have a lot options and the options you have are not really that much different from one another to be a big deal. If you find a product that does what you need and it is in the price range you can afford and think the product is worth, then buy it and use it and move on. At the cheap level, it's really not worth spending to much time worrying or aganizing over.

    I think I remember one of the Behringer heaphone amps to be slightly noise. I have used the Samson S-Phone and that one is pretty good. You are talking about monitoring for musicians while tracking?

    The Behringers work fine. They are a steal for the price. I don't get any complaints when I record folks.

    headphone amp

    I use a PreSonus HP4 and like it a lot. About $100 at Guitar Center, Musician's Friend, etc. Read about it and download the manual at http://www.presonus.com.
  14. Re: thanks man

    I would. Samson's stuff is mostly great for the money.
