Mackie has today announced a new line of headphone amplifiers at NAMM 2018. 

The HM Series Headphone Amplifiers are available in three models, the compact HM-4 and the rackmount HM-400 and HM-800.

The series features Mackie's 'Built-Like-A-Tank' construction, analogue circuitry, and an array of connectivity options.

"With our rich history providing solutions for studios and broadcast applications, it makes sense to design a comprehensive headphone distribution lineup," said Ryan Cassady, Mackie product manager. "With three different models, there's a solution for any studio with the Mackie sound and build quality they expect."

The HM-4 4-Way Headphone Amplifier features a single 1/4" stereo input and four 1/4" headphone outputs with individual level controls. A headphone distribution solution, the HM-4 is suited for tracking in the studio, mixing, practice spaces, and even in the home.

"From watching movies late at night when others are asleep to offering a great way to gather around the laptop to enjoy videos and music, the HM-4 is really great for experiencing content together," added Cassady.

The HM-400 features a main input with level control plus stereo outs, aux inputs and EQ per channel with 12 total headphone outputs.

The HM-800 8-Channel Headphone Amplifier offers up to 10 available mixes and a total of 16 headphone outputs. It features two discrete main inputs with level control plus stereo outs, aux inputs per channel, with 16 total headphone outputs.

The new product is available worldwide on February. Sold individually, the US MSRP pricing is $41.99 for the HM-4, $209.99 for the HM-400, and $279.99 for the HM-800.

MC_ to launch new integrated amplifier range

UK: The Ti Series of network audio components will be highlighted at PLASA and introduced in Q4, reports David Davies. Intended for use in CobraNet and/or EtherSound systems, the Ti Series is the first fruit of the collaboration between the research and development teams of MC² and XTA following their merger in March 2007. The new product series is said to provide "a complete solution to the audio integrator who wants to combine remote monitoring, configuration and control."
