Up to eight HR6 remotes can be linked to an HDS6, and two pairs of headphones may be plugged into each HR6. The HR6 provides four mono pots and one stereo pot for full, custom remote control. This system is designed for high-end audio applications, yet is affordable enough for home studios and general live sound applications.
HDS6 Distribution System
The HDS6 rackmount distribution system connects to the mixer/console to provide interface and power supplies to drive a group of HR6 remote mixers. Trimpots are provided on the HDS6's front panel to match the console output levels to the HDS6's inputs. The HDS6 is ideal as a low distortion headphone driver for the most critical listening situations. In addition to providing high current differential buffered signals, it also provides power and ground to the HR6 remote mixers.
HR6 Remote Mix Station
The HR6 is a compact six-channel, five-pot remote mixer that clamps to any mic stand. When used with the HDS6, the HR6 allows musicians to customize their own headphone or monitor mix, and the engineer doesn't have to touch the board. Providing four mono pots and one stereo pot, the four mono pots allow each user to create a custom mix of four console channels or busses while the stereo pot will most often be used for a main control room mix, or for a stereo effects return.
The HR6 also provides a Submixes Included/Excluded
button, which mutes the four mono pots, allowing only the stereo source to be heard, without having to alter the HR6's four monaural settings.
