HPA-2 Installation and Operation Manual
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
The HPA-2 is a dual input headphone amplifier. The HPA-2 is equipped with
two independent balanced Hi-Z input channels feeding a hefty stereo amplifier.
Each input can be selected with the front panel selector switch. Front panel ?” and
3.5mm T/R/S jacks are provided, along with a front panel level control. The selected input is adjustable with the front panel master level control, while each input is
equipped with separate rear panel trimmers. Additional features include; front panel
power LED and surge protected internal bi-polar 12-vdc-power supply affording
superior headroom and high definition audio. The HPA-2 may be desktop mounted,
under counter or with the optional HR-1/MP or HR-1/MP-XLR mounting plates,
which may be turret or counter-top mounted.
INSTALLATION
The HPA-2 is supplied with four number-six screw holes for desktop or
under the counter mounting. If custom mounting is required, we offer the optional
HR-1/MP mounting plate and the HR-1/MP-XLR with a pre-cut hole to accommodate most female XLR connectors.
NOTE: Mechanical drawings for the HPA-2 and mounting plates are available for
download from the Broadcast Tools® web site.
NOTE: For proper installation, follow the silkscreen labels on the rear panel.
Connections to the HPA-2 are via plug-in euroblock screw terminals. To
wire the plug, remove the plug from the header; remove about 1/8” of insulation
from each wire. Insert the wire into the desired terminal and then tighten the screw.
Be sure no bare wires are exposed. Reinstall the plug.
Connect your source equipment to the Left / Right input - and + terminals on
the plug-in euroblock screw terminal for each input. For monaural sources, tie the left
and right inputs together, observing correct phasing. NOTE: If the source feeding the
HPA-2 is unbalanced, install a jumper between L- or R- terminal and G (ground).
When installation is completed, plug the supplied 12vac wall transformer
into the rear panel power plug labeled “12VAC”. The front panel “PWR” led should
be illuminated.

OPERATION
The front panel headphone level control should be set to a safe listening level.
Only one set of headphones should be used. Select each input and adjust the appropriate rear panel level trimmer to match the differing input levels.
When the input selector switch is in the “OUT” position, input ONE is
selected. With the switch in the “IN” position, input TWO is selected.
NOTE: 8 ohm and/or monaural headphones should not be used with this products.
