HDS-16/HRM-16 HEADPHONE DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM
INTRODUCTION
The HDS-16/HRM-16 Headphone/Audio
Distribution System is the latest addition
to the Furman Sound headphone/audio
distribution product line. The HDS-16
distribution device sends signals to
one or more HRM-16 remote mixers;
the HDS-16 and HRM-16 are sold
separately. This new system, although
similar to our HDS-6/HR-6 system,
FEATURES
The HDS-16 accepts eight mono and four
stereo inputs from a mixing console and routes
them to each HRM-16 via a 50-pin Centronics cable. This cable also transports the DC
power to each HRM-16 so they do not require
a power cable or “wall wart.” Each HDS-16
has six Centronics outputs on the rear panel,
and additional HRM-16’s can be daisy-chained
together. A maximum of eight HRM-16’s can be
driven from a single HDS-16. Since each HRM16 can drive two headphone outputs, sixteen
musicians can be supplied with eight different
mixes from one HDS-16.
The HRM-16 is a 16-channel mixer with a
powerful headphone amplifier. It also features
a built-in microphone and talkback system that
allows communication between each musician
and the mix engineer in two modes:
■
The Live/Stage Mode (default) allows the
HDS-16 to communicate with all HRM-16’s. All
HRM-16’s with their TALK buttons depressed
can communicate with the HDS-16 but not with
other HRM-16s.
■
The Studio Mode establishes communication
among all HRM-16’s and the HDS-16 much
like an intercom system. The HRM-16 user
presses their TALK button to speak to all other
HRM-16’s and the HDS-16. This mode enables discussion between the musicians and
mix engineer between takes. Turn to page 5 to
see how to change modes.
offers more channels and several
enhanced features that better meet the
demands of both studio and live stage
monitoring situations.
A solo system allows the engineer to auto1
HDS-16/HRM-16 HEADPHONE DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM
matically mute all HRM-16 sends except the
channel D stereo and talkback outputs. This
unique feature allows each musician to hear a
rough or final mix and send soloed tracks from
the mix console. This eliminates the need for
musicians to relocate to the control room or
manually change their HRM-16 level settings.
normally located near the main mixing console,
provides the power and signal conditioning
for a maximum of eight HRM-16’s. Individual
channel sends from the console connect to the
HDS-16 inputs.
Note: Both the solo function on the HDS-16 and
the talkback system on the HRM-16 can be activated manually using their front panel controls or
by optional remote switches.
The front panel serves as the patch bay for all
input connections: eight mono and four stereo
¼-inch and TT input connectors. All connectors are balanced and use the Tip/Ring/Sleeve
(TRS) wiring convention. Both ¼-inch and TT
connectors can be used but not for the same
channel. If both connector types are used for
the same channel, the TT connector will be active and ¼-inch connector will be disabled.

TALKBACK
Figure 2 shows the TALKBACK connectors at

console’s line-level, talkback-microphone output or cue send to the HDS-16’s ¼-inch INPUT
jack. This signal is distributed to the HRM-16s
on the Centronics cable along with the other
channels. Use the RETURN FROM HRM-16
connector to monitor talkback from the HRM-

16’s. Talkback is always available from the mix
console and the level can be adjusted with the
HRM-16’s TALKBACK VOLUME control.
There are two talkback modes designed for
live and studio situations:
LIVE/STAGE MODE (DEFAULT)
This mode establishes communication from the
HDS-16 to all HRM-16’s but not between them.
Each HRM-16 user must depress their TALK
button or switch to speak with the HDS-16 but
can always receive from it. The HRM-16 users
will not hear other HRM-16 users or their own
voice. This is useful for live situations where
a single HRM-16 user’s communication with
the mix engineer does not require interaction
between musicians. Live/Stage was selected
as the default mode to eliminate feedback from
adjacent stage monitors.
STUDIO MODE
This mode establishes communication among
all HRM-16’s and the HDS-16 much like an
intercom system. Any HRM-16 user with their
TALK button depressed can speak to all HRM16’s and the HDS-16. Each person will also
hear their own voice.This mode is useful to
enable discussion between the musicians and
mix engineer between takes.

level controls. The HDS-16 solo feature requires patching the mix console’s main or mix
output to the HDS-16’s channel D input.
1. Use a a Phillips screwdriver to unscrew the
middle two screws located near the top of the
front panel and all screws on the top.
Note: After using the solo feature to listen to
the main console mix between takes, turn the
channel D level control off (to 0) on all HRM-16s
before resuming recording. It is easy to forget to
turn down channel D because you will still hear
the intended channel mix but the main console
mix will also be present.
A jumper located inside the HDS-16 selects
between two talkback modes.
2. Remove the top cover. You will see the left-

3. Lift the jumper from the J-2 two-pin header and
move it to J-1 to change the talkback mode
from Live/Stage to Studio mode.
Figure 4 shows the solo interface, labeled
CHANNEL D LEFT & RIGHT ONLY because
all HRM-16 outputs are muted when the SOLO
button is depressed except Channel D. A
switch can be plugged into the ¼-inch SOLO
REMOTE SWITCH connector to turn the solo
function on/off. The SOLO ON LED indicator
lights when the solo function is active.
SOLO
This feature allows musicians at the HRM-16s
to hear rough and final mixes or soloed tracks
from the recording console without exiting to
control room or manually altering the HRM-16’s

Note: The remote and front panel switches
are wired in parallel. Although either switch
can activate the SOLO function, both must
be in the off position to deactivate it.
REAR PANEL
The HDS-16 rear panel has six, 50-pin, Centronics output connectors for the HRM-16s,
AC-power, and ground switches (Figure 5).
While male-to-male Centronics cables are
available from computer retailers, Furman
manufactures superior quality cables with
twisted pair construction to optimize sound
quality and reject cross-talk interference. We
highly recommend using the 25 twisted pair,
shielded, 25-ft cable supplied with each HRM16. Contact Furman for other cable lengths and
linking adapters.
is 200 ft. See Table 1 on page 8 for information
about cable losses beyond 100 ft.
Push the AC-power switch up to the ON position to power the HDS-16.
The GROUND lift switch has two positions:
LIFT: Signal ground is separate from chassis
ground. Earth ground (AC line cord) is connected to the chassis only.
GROUNDED: Signal ground is connected to
chassis ground; use this setting unless there is
hum or noise present.
Note: Be sure all units are turned off before connecting an HDS-16 to one or more HRM-16’s.
Note: The maximum recommended cable run

REMOTE MIXER
■
■
The HRM-16s receive their input signals and
power supply entirely through the Centronics
cable from the HDS-16. Eight mono and four
stereo channels can be mixed and monitored
with headphones or sent to a monitor system.
The eight mono channels may be routed to
the EFFECTS SEND output on the rear panel.
The effected signal is returned to the HRM-16
through the stereo effect returns on the rear
panel and blended into the mix with the EFFECTS RETURN level control. The HRM-16
can be easily mounted on a microphone stand
with the thumb screws and clip provided, or
placed on a table or shelf.
TOP PANEL

Press the TALK button and speak in the direction of the built-in microphone above the button
(three small holes in the shape of a triangle).
The microphone will pick up voices from up to
six ft away so you do not need to speak directly
into it. Use the TALKBACK VOLUME control to
alter the level of incoming talkback information.
See page 4 for a complete description of the
talkback functions.
REAR PANEL
The HDS-16/HRM-16 system can be connected in parallel or series without compromising
sound quality or power as long as no more
than four HRM-16s are connected in series
from a single HDS-16 output.

INPUT FROM HDS-16
This connector delivers the input signals and
power supply from the HDS-16 (parallel) or
from another HRM-16’s OUTPUT TO ADDITIONAL HRM-16’s connector (series).
The remaining rear panel inputs and outputs
are ¼-inch TRS connectors.

EFFECTS SEND: Connect this mono output to
an effects processor.
EFFECTS RETURN: Use the L input for a
mono return (panned center) or L and R inputs
for stereo effects.
LINE OUT: Use this mono, line-level output to
route the HRM-16 to a monitor system. The
LINE OUT and headphone signals are both
affected by the MASTER VOLUME and HI/LO
EQ controls.
TALKBACK SWITCH REMOTE: Plug a momentary switch into this jack to use instead of
(or in addition to) the TALK button.
OUTPUT TO ADDITIONAL
HRM-16’S
This connector carries the same signal sent
to the INPUT FROM HDS-16 connector. Connect this output to another HRM-16’s INPUT
FROM HDS-16 connector to achieve a series
connection. An output that simply replicates the
input is often called input through because the
signal is sent out before being processed in
the device. As a result, the HRM-16’s top panel
controls do not affect the OUTPUT TO ADDITIONAL HRM-16’s signal.

HRM-16
The headphone driver and power supply regulators are protected against over-temperature
and current overloads. The regulated power
delivered from the HDS-16 to the HRM-16 is
protected against over-current by PolySwitch
resettable fuses inside each HRM-16. These
fuses prevent a defective HRM-16 from shutting down the HDS-16 or attached HRM-16s.
Both devices reset automatically after clearing
the fault and removing power to the circuit.
HDS-16
The regulated power delivered from the HDS16 to the HRM-16 is protected against shorted
cables by an over-current crowbar circuit. The
affected power supply turns off in response
to an over-current condition. Restore normal
operation by removing the defective cable or
HRM-16 and turn off the power to the HDS-16
for at least 30 seconds.
The AC-line fuse is a 1-Amp Slo-Blo. Replace
it only with a fuse of the same type and rating.
