Following up on the tremendous success of its HDS-6/ HR-6 Headphone/Audio Distribution System, Furman introduces an enlarged and enhanced system, the HDS-16/HRM-16 Headphone/Audio Distribution System.
The HDS-16 Headphone/Audio Distribution System and HRM-16 Headphone/Audio Remote Mixer are the logical extension to Furman‘s very popular headphone amp/audio distribution lineup. These models are designed to function equally well for both live (in-ear or stage monitors) and studio applications, allowing greater flexibility and ease for both the user and the engineer.
The double rack-space HDS-16 provides full patching functions on its front panel via 1/4” and TT input jacks, and is intended to be installed at the mixing console location. The HDS-16 provides power and signal conditioning to drive the HRM-16 Remote Mixers. There is no power cord or wall wart required for the HRM-16‘s. In addition, it includes two 1/4” jacks for the two-way talkback functions, and a SOLO REMOTE switch with an indicator that allows muting of all but one stereo feed at all HRM-16‘s. This comes in handy for isolating tracks for critical listening without having each HRM-16 user turn down all but one channel. The SOLO function also includes a 1/4” jack so actuation can be done with a footswitch. Front panel indicators include POWER ON and SOLO ON. The rear panel includes six Centronics 50 pin connectors to link up to six HRM-16‘s (more if daisy chaining is used), and the standard Furman ON/OFF and GROUND LIFT switches.
The unique talkback system is extremely versatile. It can be configured two different ways by moving a jumper on the circuit board in the HDS-16. One way allows the talkback mic on each HRM-16 to be fed to all of the other HRM-16 units as well as the HDS-16. The other configuration allows communication to the HDS-16 only. This is particularly useful for stage use where the user‘s talkback mic should not feed into all of the monitors (including the user‘s own monitor).
Connecting HDS-16 and HRM-16s is easy, as each mixer is supplied with a 25-foot super-flexible interconnect cable which can easily be extended or routed through walls and daisy chained to other HRM-16s. Cable extenders and thru-wall installation kits are available as well.
