MOTU 16a - No Headphones Input??

Post by rob_lee » Sat Jan 17, 2015 10:54 pm

Ok so tonight I was shopping online for the MOTU 16a and was about to hit the buy button BUT after a closer look at the front panel I thought WTF no headphone input :o Why was this omitted from this unit but not the others? The 16a has a ton of inputs for my needs then I see the missing feature. :roll: Still thinking about getting one though but quite a bummer, anyone else using the MOTU 16a here?

The 16a is made for people who want to interface with a bunch of outboard, be it an analogue console or a more modular set of rack gear. If you really need a headphone out then buy a headphone amp or get the Monitor 8 to go with it, or even something cheap like a Mackie Big Knob.

Yeah I loved seeing all them inputs in the back mate then I seen the catch of having to buy another device if I went for this model, all that room on the front for a nice little headphone input too. Will have a think about this now no hurry.
Thanks.
