The SLA-1 Studio Linear Amplifier is a robust yet compact power
amplifier designed for studio and even live applications. It has been
designed and engineered to provide clean, quiet power and excellent
sound with ultra-low noise and distortion.
The SLA-1 is rated at 100 watts rms/channel @ 8 ohms (130 watts
rms/channel @ 4 ohms and 260 Watts/Bridged Mono @ 8 ohms), with hum and
noise >100dB, and has an input impedance of 22k ohm unbalanced (44k
ohm balanced). It features a Toroidal Transformer, XLR & ¼” Inputs,
Ground Lift Switch, Fan Cooled Design, Power, Clip, Signal and Protect
LEDs, one IU Spacing and a frequency response of 10 Hz to 40 kHz within
It also features an input sensitivity of 1V for rated power into 8
ohms, and silent SmartFan cooling and custom convection heat radiating
fins. The SLA-1 is perfect for professional, project and home studios,
and is an excellent compliment for passive studio monitors.
We’ve also included a tamper proof faceplate for your fixed installations.
The SLA-1 is a powerful, compact amplifier, and its rugged, steel chassis is designed for years of durable and reliable use.
The SLA-1 features a three-year warranty.

Power Amps Series Overview
Offering a superb level of sound quality, ART power amplifiers feature
clean, powerful circuitry, along with a straightforward user interface.
They are an excellent choice when a robust amplifier is necessary to
deliver the power you need for professional and project studio
monitoring. ART power amplifiers may be used in a wide variety of
project and professional studio environments. Self-contained in a steel
and aluminum enclosure, these units are designed for many years of
The SLA-2 Studio Linear Power Amplifier delivers
200 watts per channel (560 watts bridged mono) of clean, clear power
and is housed inside a convenient single rack space! With the already
stellar level of sound quality, the SLA-2’s redesigned circuitry
combined with the same straightforward user interface as the SLA-1,
quickly and accurately packs the additional punch you need to make your
mixes clear and accurate. The SLA-2 features ART’s SmartFan™ Technology
which in addition to a standard cooling fan, provides oversized
convection heat sinks located on each side of the unit which silently
directs heatflow outside the chassis. SmartFan's temperature controlled
variable speed keeps the amp quiet and cool when performing at lower
output and activates when the amp’s heatload rises. The SLA-2 also
features a Euroblock connector and a tamper-proof faceplate for your
fixed installations. Its long list of useful features measure up to an
incredible value! Ideal for pro, project and home studios, the SLA-2 is
the perfect solution for passive studio monitors.
