ART - SLA-1 (2-Ch Rackmount 100w Power Amp)

The ART SLA-1 Studio Linear Amplifier is a robust yet compact power amplifier designed for studio or even select live applications. It has been designed and engineered to provide clean, quiet power and excellent sound with ultra-low noise and distortion.

Rated at 100 watts RMS/channel @ 8 ohms (130W RMS/channel @ 4 ohms), with a frequency response from 10Hz to 40kHz the SLA-1 is perfect for professional, project and home studios. Capable of delivering 260W when bridged mono into an 8 ohm load, the SLA-1 can easily move out of the studio and into any live rig or installation as an ideal monitor amplifier or zone amp solution.

Professional Features - The SLA-1 has been designed to deliver in the most demanding audio applications. Housed in an aluminum and steel single space 19" rackmount chassis, the SLA-1 uses a proven toroidal transformer design for unmatched long-term reliability.

SmartFan Cooling System - The SLA-1 features SmartFan, an advanced, thermal dependent fan assisted convection cooled system. The SmartFan system is dependent upon the internal ambient temperature of the unit, and runs at high or low levels depending on the amplifier's cooling needs.

Versatile Connectivity - XLR and 1/4" TRS balanced inputs as well as multi-way output binding posts ensure the SLA-1 can be quickly and easily tied in to any system without modification. A simple to install tamper proof cover is included.
