    i'm looking for a headphone amp, i'm not too familiar with what's out there but ideally it would need to have the following things:

    - decent sound quality for bass
    - audio input (for ipod etc)
    - an extra output for recording would be useful
    - metronome

    does something like this exist?

    With the exception of the metrognome :D feature look for a used Raven LAbs PHA-1, these are great for all kinds of uses. There is a possibility of these being available new again in the (I hope, not too distant) future.
  3. Zoom makes a bass effects pedal with a headphone out, built in drum loops, and a usb recording out. Don't know about the aux in for an iPod though.

    thanks for those suggestions, the Raven Labs PHA-1 looks great but I'll never find one in the UK if they've not been in production for a while - shame.

    re. the Zoom amp, it looks great but aux audio in/out is a must. Also, with aux audio in, I guess there'll be no need for a metronome. There must be something decent out there that's able to do this...
