    Hi,

    I need to split analog out from Apogee Rosetta 200 (XLR balanced line, adjustable between +2 and +26 dBu, usually +4dBu) to feed monitor amp and headphone amp.

    How to do and what is the most transparent solution?


    Thank you very much in advance

    The best means of doing this is to utilize a high quality distribtion amplifier. You can obtain these anywhere from the price range of a few hundred dollars to well over a grand. Companies/products to look at include ATI (http://www.atiguys.com), Aphex and Henry Engineering. Look at the specifications to get the best bang for the buck.

    what about a small mixer with subouts?

    Many thanks Alex, I'm going to research. So many choices. I need some time to compare.

    Xrocka, small and affordable mixer(s) (I have two) usually color the sound too much and does not handle balanced +4 signal very well. But thanks anyway for the input.

    if both destinations are high imp bridging inputs
    and the output is genuine 600 ohm

    then it is very possible that a passive Y cord approach may do what you want.

    one of sites has some notes on this

    Thanks Kev,

    I'm on the way to check that.
