Headphone amp

Can anyone recommend a reasonable priced good headphone amp I need a minimum of 4 channels. I'd like to stay around $100.00 if possible.

Since I just bought HS80M I need something to control volume on both of them at the same time. And also need a headphone amp, would like it to be rackmounted... Any advices? I've heard that hp4 is nice for the headphone part but monitors knob is useless and is not consisten.

P.S. Another preferd feature: Knobs should go to 11 8-) (c) Spinal Tap

I use the PreSonus HP4 and a Behringer AMP800. Why? Because I forgot as I went from recording musician to recording engineer that when recording a band "live", musicians want different mixes in their headphones. Duh.

If I were buying a headphone amp now, I would probably buy the Samson S•phone (about $160 US). It has 4 outputs and stereo + 4 aux inputs. The Rolls RA62c looks similar to me.

The behringers have a habit of being very noisy - especially in the channels near the power supply. I had an HA4700 and finally got sick of all the noise. I replaced it with a Mackie HM-54. Not as many features - not as many outputs - no pretty light-up buttons - no buzz or hiss either. There are a number of places selling the mackie for $100.
