Comments about ART SLA1 Studio Power Amplifier:

The Art SLA 1 is a bit of a legend in the music community. When I bought mine, I heard alot of positive feedback from fellow musicians. I don't know about the studio setting, but I do use it to power my guitar rig. This amp is lighter and smaller than I thought it would be, so it leaves plenty of free space in the rack. It has all the basics a power amp should have.It sounds great! It is alot clearer than other power amps I've used. I've seen alot of guitarists go broke buying a $1,000+ poweramp...I must ask WHY?! This is one of those hidden jems few of us knew about.Art is such a good company who believes in quality and customer care. I feel confident in this amp all the way.

Very nice for home studio use

By mattybeast

Comments about ART SLA1 Studio Power Amplifier:

I like this Amp a lot. I use it primarily to power studio monitors, and I must say it does the job much better than the last 2 Amps I've used. It's very quiet even with the fan (it appears to be a simple matter to disconnect it). The sound is very clean and uncolored. Slew rate is extremely fast in my opinion. It did better than I had hoped when I measured tones thruogh it, although i do think the highs were a little harsh when i referenced music through it at high volumes(but to be fair I've only put about 40 hrs on it so far, more "burn in" should temper this). In short I find this unit to be a Fast, clean, and punchy Amp. MUCH better than several inexpensive so called "reference class" amps I've had.

    I use this in my guitar rig through a 4 X 10" cabinet, fills a 300+ seat room easy without clipping, flat response, no distortion, stays cool, your grandma could carry it. I've done 100's of shows using this without a hiccup.

          Purchased to run a stereo 2x12 guitar cabinet with an effects processor and ART EQ. Powerful, clean transparent, 1 rack space, no fan noise. Price was right. I am a lead guitarist for a classic rock band doing live shows.

          I love this amp. I've had mine for years now. I used to run a small 1 watt Hughes & Kettner Cream Machine through it, then a Hughes & Kettner Blues Master, then moved on to a Pod HD500. Been working with the Pod running through this then 2 - 2x12 cabinets. Best sound I've ever has. This is light weight, 1 rack space, very quiet, and VERY transparent as well. Love this amp!!
