Furman hds-6

Does anybody know if there's any significant delay (latency) produced by Furman HDS-6/HR-2 headphone distribution system? A similar system by Hear Technologies claims some 1.5ms delay through the system due to A/D D/A conversion etc...

The furman rig is ALL analog. There is no a-d-a conversion. I have used that system quite often in various studios. The producer I am working with right now has that rig in his high end room and it works out GREAT !! He feeds the inputs from his console, and has a hr-2 box for each musician. The system gets plenty loud, and works great from my experience.

He often sets up a great sounding stereo mix on the stereo channel, and then inputs various instruments on the mono channels giving the musicians the ability to add more of "themselves" if needed.

The Hear-back system looks really nice too. I have not experienced it, but, 1.5 ms of delay seems negligible to me.

Be curious to hear from others who have used the Hear-back or other digital based systems.

The biggest downfall of the hds-6/hr-6 is there is no master volume control/knob!!

How do you adjust your overall volume level w/o messing up your phone mix?

Seems like such an inane oversight.

I have the HDS-16 system which of course has master volume controls.

It's such a simple system I don't think a master volume is neccesary, at least it hasn't here

So, when you have a stereo mix and say 3 mono inputs going, you set a nice balance....then all you want to do is adjust the overall volume...you have to adjust 5 knobs equally??!!

It's a mixer without a master mix fader!

Also, be careful what type of cat5 you use, the connections can get a bit cranky after a while....
