Sonifex RB-DHD6

The Sonifex RB-DHD6 digital 6 way headphone distribution amplifier is a 1U rack-mount which receives a digital input signal, as either AES/EBU or S/PDIF and converts it to 6 individually buffered, jack-plug, headphone outputs, each with their own volume control. Useful for connection to digital mixing desks, digital routers and matrices, the RB-DHD6 connects directly to an AES/EBU or S/PDIF output to provide the highest quality audio directly to the headphones.

The input connectors consist of a single balanced XLR-3 for the AES/EBU input and a single unbalanced phono connector for the S/PDIF input. A button located on the rear panel is used to select either the AES/EBU, or S/PDIF, input and de-emphasis on the output can be controlled via dipswitch. If de-emphasis is selected, the RB-DHD6 will decode 50/15µs emphasis when indicated by certain channel status bits in the incoming digital audio data. When operating, the front panel power LED flashes red and amber whenever the unit is not synchronised to the incoming digital signal.
