SSL 2 or SSL 2+
Which one is right for me?

The table below will help you to compare the differences between SSL 2 and SSL 2+. Both products have 2 input channels for recording and balanced monitor outputs for connecting to your monitors. The SSL 2+ gives you 'that little bit more', with an additional professional high-current headphone output, complete with independent level control, making it perfect for when you are recording with another person. Furthermore, this additional headphone output can be set up in a way that allows the other person to have a different headphone mix. SSL 2+ also features unbalanced outputs for easy connection to DJ mixers and finally, it has traditional 5-Pin DIN MIDI input and MIDI outputs, for connecting to drum modules or keyboards.
