Its well built with quality medal construction and the controls feel very smooth.

I just connected the ham radio's speaker output to the input and as long as I keep the volume level on the radio reasonably low, it sounds fine.
Kiscica
Even with the dial in the far left position and the headphone level turned down as well, sound still seeps in at a low and distorted rumble.

I use the mixer to listen to a computer, radio scanner and iPod through the same headphones/speakers. The individual dials have a solid feel and allow for any combination of audio levels. Plugging in headphones does not disable the master line out, so you can alternate between headphones and speakers without having to rearrange cables.

It's important to note that this device only accepts the fat 1/4'' male cables. You will need splitters to get a signal from 3.5mm stereo jacks (the size on most consumer electronics) into this mixer. Depending on what your speaker system uses, more adapters will be needed to get audio out from the Left and Right 1/4'' jacks.

One other annoyance is that turning the dial all the way down does not completely silence the channel's source. Even with the dial in the far left position and the headphone level turned down as well, sound still seeps in at a low and distorted rumble. This isn't a problem if you have access to all the devices you are monitoring (i.e. just pause the iPod to silence the music completely), but could be an issue if you are listening to sources which cannot be controlled or turned off.

I bought this little mixer to mix the output of my three PC's to one set of nice powered speakers. For years I used a few passive volume controls - they were so noisy that I ended up turning the volume off most of the time. This little box has changed all of that - it is nicely quiet at normal volumes without a buzz or a pop. The unit has a nice quality feel to it - the controls are smooth, have a mid-level detent, etc. As previously mentioned it has plenty of gain - though i noticed the hiss level started to become apparent if the volume is turned way up. The little pan control on each channel are a nice touch. My minor grumbles would be I wish it had an on/off button so i don't have to leave it on 24/7, and for my application i needed to buy 8 phone-to-phono adapters. Well worth it, though - it's a "buy".

Don't be fooled by its small size; it is a great product. Does the job well, has plenty of gain, and the small balance adjustments per input are an added bonus. Independent volumes for main output and headphone output are very useful. Small minus is that if you already have RCA cables you need adapters (RCA plugh to 1/4" jack), but those cost just ~$2 each.

I am using this mixer to combine 2 desktop computers and a Bluetooth receiver that interfaces with a number of other devices. For its intended purpose of combining multiple sources of audio into a singular output without noticeable quality loss it certainly succeeds. But there are always compromises made when engineering a device like this and I will note some of the quirks of this device below. Despite these, however, this little mixer is perfect as a simple mixer/moderate gain stage. It is low noise (<.005% THD) and does not seem to color the sound noticeably.

NON-ZERO MINIMUM VOLUME
This was mentioned by other reviewers here. No channel can be completely reduced in volume (such that it is inaudible) including the master channel. This means that when you have any channel set to a moderate volume, even if you minimize the master volume you will still hear audio. It is low in volume but certainly audible.

MAXIMIZE INTERNAL VOLUMES
This tip may be obvious, but when connecting computers to the mixer, you should maximize your internal audio volume on the computer. The reason for this is to lower the noise floor of the computer signal as much as possible--unless you are using an external DAC you WILL hear electrical noise otherwise. Even when you do this you may still hear some noise when the audio volume is low and you have to crank the gain of a channel. If you can't stand it you can always invest in an external audio interface or DAC.

HIGH HEADPHONE OUTPUT IMPEDANCE = POOR ELECTRICAL DAMPENING
According to the specifications provided, the unit has a headphone output impedance of 100 ohms which is astonishingly high for modern equipment.

I use this mixer to run an ASUS Xonar D/A, my laptop audio and my TV line out through to my Klipsch Pro M221 powered speakers. There aren't very many small reasonably priced mixers to use for a consumer audio application like this, and after a bad experience with a Rolls MX41b, I decided to give the ART a try even though it seemed more oriented towards pro audio/stage applications.

This is a high quality unit, which is what I would expect from prior experiences I have with ART products. Solid and heavy enough -- which is important so all the cables don't make it tilt or fall off the edge of a desk or other box when stacked. All the controls have a good smooth feel and allow easy very fine adjustments. Not a bad looking box, so it can sit on the desk without looking ugly or out of place, although it has the labels for the inputs/outputs printed on the top and very visible.

This is a very clean mixer -- no noise or distortion is added until the levels are totally maxed out, which is silly to do anyway. But at ~50-75% levels the signals are clean and strong enough to satisfy the Klipsch and sound great.

It only has 3 stereo input channels, but that was enough for me. Some of the other small mixers out there are 4 channel.

I like the individual line and headphone volume controls, as well as the individual pans for each input (although I really don't need to pan each one individually -- in my set up I just need one pan to slightly adjust the output to compensate for my speaker placement, but it could be very handy if the inputs are biased towards one channel).

The biggest complaint for me is that at 0% levels the signals are not fully muted, and there is no separate mute switch per channel like on a pro mixer.
