The 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 (130 watts rms/channel @ 4ohms), with a frequency response from 10 Hz to 40 kHz the SLA-1 is perfect for professional, project and home studios. Capable of delivering 260 Watts 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-inch 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-inch TRS balanced inputs as well as multi-way output binding posts are 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.

I have owned the product for a couple of years now.The fan is far too noisy for a studio environment. I will have to seek alternatives as I can't afford to take another chance. Very disappointing indeed.

I swear ART doesn't test their units first before shipping them out. There is a constant buzz coming out of the speakers and the cooling fan is ridiculously noisy. This is the second unit I tried and it was the same for both. ART really needs to step up their quality control. I'm currently seeking an alternative brand to suit my needs.

I have owned and used this almost daily for the last year as a studio amp. Using balanced inputs it provides clean consistent signal to my monitors. Recommended!

Bought this amp to run my guitar rig...had to bring it back within a year because the weight of it tore the front panel off when I set my rack down facing up. Pretty much my fault for banging the rack around I guess. Liked it so much though, that I bought a second one to run my recording monitors...VERY quiet cooling system(can barely hear it in a quiet room) and overall great sound....good product for the price
