    I have a new Markbass little Mark 250 head, and have a couple of questions for anyone who may be able to help out.
    1) Does the fan stay on all the time?
    2) Can I use the tuner output for headphones?

    +1 headphones MUST have a headphone OUT, nothing else. The fan, I'm not sure about.

    I guess I may have an issue, it's pretty much brand new with about 25 hours worth of playing time at low volume. It seems the fan runs constantly when it's on.
    Not sure if there should be a break in period although I doubt that should affect the fan.

    well there may not be anything wrong with it. it's a smaller amp than the lmiii, and it's possible it may run hotter more often. i think the time to worry about it is if your head gets really hot and the fan DOESN'T come on.

    Will heed the advice, the dealer where I bought it told me that it should always stay on since he did not think there was any thermostat in the unit.
    Thanks again
    Cheers !

    I'm about to buy one of this heads, doesn't work for headphones if you plug them in the speaker line-out and a low master level?
