Hear Technologies Switch Back M8RX

Compact personal headphone amplifier and monitoring interface with four analog inputs, two studio-quality microphone preamps, and four channels of Dante network audio inputs/outputs
MFR# M8RX

Product Description

With intuitive design and robust capabilities, the Hear Technologies Switch Back M8RX is actually two products in one. This gives the musician a choice to play live, record, or monitor their mix all in one single tool.

The M8RX is a personal interface to be used for live sound or recording, and also a multi-channel headphone monitoring system. While compact in size, the M8RX gives individuals options to use it in multiple ways, such as a mini recording studio setup or a simple communication system.

The research and design of the M8RX is what sets it apart. Hear Technologies' engineers created the sleek look and feel making it perfect for hanging from a belt, mounting on a mic stand, or sitting on a table. The M8RX features a total of eight channels of audio mixing – two studio-quality microphone preamps, two channel line-inputs, and four Dante network audio inputs/outputs. The M8RX’s two mic preamps have a distortion spec below 0.001% along with zero-latency analog mixing and monitoring of the four analog inputs. With Ethernet capability becoming standard in most pro audio gear today, the M8RX includes a total of four channels of Dante network audio inputs/outputs.

Along with the same high quality headphone amplifier as in the Hear Back PRO and OCTO systems, the M8RX has 5 watts of headphone power and can be connected to a computer via the Ethernet port. The unit uses PoE power over the same Cat5e cable as the Ethernet.

Features:

  • Local control of up to 8 channels of audio (4 local analog inputs and 4 Dante digital inputs)
  • All 4 local analog input channels are made available on the Dante network as sources
  • Two ultra-low-noise studio-quality discrete microphone preamplifiers
  • Remotely/Locally adjustable microphone gain selectable in 6 dB increments between 30 and 60 dB of gain
  • Ultra-low distortion of 0.001% THD+N (even with 60 dB of gain on the microphone preamp!)
  • Zero latency headphone monitoring of the local analog inputs
  • Remotely selectable LED color on top for easy color-coding and identification
  • Optional Hear Technologies software for discovering M8RX interfaces on the network, controlling gain, phantom power, and LED color
  • Standard CAT5e, CAT6 cabling delivers power and Dante digital audio to each M8RX interface
  • Small enough to be belt clipped or mount on a stand or clip with ¼”-20 thread standard camera-tripod mount
  • Use stand-alone as a small microphone preamp, analog mixer, and headphone amplifier without a Dante network connection (great as a "more me" system)

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!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

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.
Phil T.
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.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

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.

I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
