Furman HR-2 – No Longer Available

Headphone remote station
MFR# HR-2

Product Description

Furman HR-2 Headphone Remote Stations (sometimes called satellites) are passive devices intended for use with the Furman HA-6A Headphone/Monitor Amplifier, to increase the number of headphone stations beyond the six provided, and/or to locate them more conveniently.  With the use of a simple adaptor, HR-2's may also be used successfully with any stereo power amplifier of 50 watts per channel or less to convert them to use as headphone distribution amplifiers.  (The Furman SP-20A Half Rack 20 Watt/channel Power Amplifier has the required adaptor built in.)  Each HR-2 box can accommodate two sets of headphones, each with its own volume control.

USING THE HR-2

In rehearsals, headphones are often used to keep sound levels down to avoid disturbing neaighbors.  In the recording studio, headphones are most often used in the overdubbing process, where new musical tracks are recorded in synchronization with previously recorded tracks.  The musicians doing the overdub hear the already recorded tracks in their headphones, and play along with them. Because of the presence of open microphones, headphones are much preferred to speakers for cueing overdubs.

In many situations, it may be sufficient to plug all headphones directly into an HA-6A or other headphone amp.  However, in a larger studio, or when each musician must have easy access to his or her headphone volume control, it is more practical to use several HR-2 Remote Stations at strategic locations around the room. In this case, the HA-6A (or the stereo power amplifier substituting for it) would most likely be installed in the control room.

The HR-2 Remote Stations connect in "daisy chain" fashion to the SPEAKER B-SATELLITE/REMOTE output on the rear panel of the HA-6A.  This output is a male three-pin XLR connector, so that ordinary microphone cables can be used.  The HA-6A connects to the first HR-2 box; another mic cable connects the first HR-2 to the second HR-2; a third mic cable connects the second HR-2 to the third HR-2; and so on.  If low impedance headphones are used, up to twelve HR-2's may be chained together.  If medium or high impedance headphones are used, 25 or more Remote Stations may be chained.

The HR-2 Remote Stations are compact boxes which easily attach with a thumbscrew to any microphone stand.  Each HR-2 has two stereo volume controlsand two headphone jacks, to accommodate two listeners.  There are also two XLR connectors, one male and one female, for use in daisy-chaining units together.  If desired, the clip on an HR-2 box may be hung on a belt if no microphone stand is convenient.  Or, the clip itself may be popped off the box for tabletopuse.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
