Introduction
Thank you very much for purchasing the Fostex PH-100 headphone amplifier/distributor. The PH-100 can distribute the input signal accepted by any of three pairs of stereo
input connectors to 10 headphones whose level can be adjusted independently. It also
provides the 10-input, 10-output matrix box function which allows independent feed
for each headphone. The PH-100 is equipped with two stereo pairs of balanced inputs
(+4 dBu XLR-3-31 connectors and -10 dBV phone jacks), as well as a stereo pair of
unbalanced inputs ( -10 dBV RCA pin jacks). It also provides the AUX IN jacks which are
useful when using the PH-100 as a cue box.
In addition, you can cascade PH-100s, making more than 10 persons possible to monitor
the same stereo source.
Please read through this manual before using, and always keep it nearby.

Notes on Operation
• Retard the sound volume control when the headphone plug
is connected or disconnected from the jack.
• Do not use headphones for long hours at high sound levels.
If the headphones is used under such condition, it could
injure your hearing. Also, be careful not to rapidly raise
the output control when using the headphone. Please use
good sense to protect your hearing.
Always turn down the sound volume control before the
headphone is plugged or unplugged while the volume
control is set too high, it could create noise and have hurt
your ears.
• Switch off power when connecting external equipment to PH100.
• Turn down all sound volume controls before switch on power.
Always switch off power to the PH-100 when connecting
external equipment to it.
Be sure to fully turn off all sound volume controls when
switching on/off power to the PH-100.

<Example - 1: Using the PH-100 as a cue box >
The following figure shows the example of using PH-100s as cue boxes for recording.
Each PH-100 is installed in each booth of a recording studio. Musicians in each booth can monitor the sound
with the desired balance between signals from the [INPUT] and [AUX IN] jacks by adjusting the [INPUT] and [AUX

<Example -3: Cascading PH-100>
The following figure shows the example of cascading three PH-100s, allowing 30 persons to monitor the same
stereo source. You can cascade up to 10 PH-100s (allowing 100 persons to monitor).
Note that we do not guarantee the function when cascading more than ten PH-100s.
<Notes for cascading>
First unit
• To cascade PH-100s, connect between the
[CASCADE OUT] jacks (L, R) of the first unit
and the unbalanced [INPUT (-10 dBV)] jacks
(L, R) of the second unit. In the same way,
connect between the second and third units.
• By setting the [INPUT] control of the second
and third units to the "CAL" position, you
can control all headphone output levels
using the [INPUT] control of the first unit.
