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.
