What is Alto?

    I'm in the market for a budget, but usable headphone amp. I have a rolls HA43 (four channel) which I'm wanting to upgrade from slightly. I don't want to pay $300 for a 4 channel that will likely get stepped on by the next punk band that walks into my little basement home studio. Anyway, I searched e-bay and discovered a decent looking amp, but have never heard of the "maker" - obviously made in China. Did any of you see or hear this unit at the Namm Show, or know anything about it. It's either this, B****** (puke), or Samson (second puke). Thanks, Rob

    That "B" one is actually a very good unit for your needs.

    Alto is an Italian alternative to Behringer. It is distirbuted in the US solely by the Yorkville distributor. Yorkville also owns ART, which has an ok headphone amp/mixer. Furman's are about bullet proof.

    I use 2 Furman 6 channel rack mounts in a school setting ( equivalent to many punk bands) :D and they've held up nicely. I think they were only slightly more than $300 for 6 channels
