The HA-6AB also features a convenient input level control on the left side of the front panel. A pair of yellow LED's-one for each channel-light up whenever signal is present (threshold -28 dBu). Another pair of red LED's show an overload condition in either channel.
The Furman HA-6AB's 20 watts-per-channel make it ideal as a low distortion headphone driver for the most critical listening situations. While most headphone amps provide half a watt or less per headphone channel, the HA-6AB's higher power can drive headphones of any impedance to their full rated listening level, and do so with minimal noise and distortion. Its power capacity is also just right for the small "cube" reference speakers used in most recording studios as a comparison with the main control room monitors-it can power them without overpowering them. On the studio floor, a set of small monitor speakers driven by the HA-6AB can make a session progress more efficiently by giving the musicians a chance to hear a playback without needing to disconnect themselves from their equipment and walk into the control room.
The HA-6AB utilizes an efficient toroidal power transformer for silent operation and low magnetic leakage, as required in a studio environment. It is fully protected against thermal overload, and it can withstand a short circuit on any or all outputs for an indefinite time without damage.
