Vocal Monitoring

I recently got a Vocalbooth in my home studio so im trying to set up a monitoring system for me and the vocalist. I'm running pro Tools LE, 002 rack. I have a headphone amp setup inside the booth. My question is... if I run my main monitor outs to the headphone amp in the booth, and then use the monitor outs on the amp to return to my monitor speakers is there any down fall when it comes to mixing? Will there be any loss of clarity since the signal has to travel much?

I don't know if there is any significant signal loss due to your chain, but as a rule: shorter is better.

For zero latency and the ability to let the vocalist make his/her own basic headphone mix (vocals/mix), the Soundcraft Compact 4 may be interesting. It's $99,- and when only used for monitoring the quality of the unit shouldn't be a problem.
