RME Fireface 802 headphone outputs question

Postby Eric Sagmuller » Sun Feb 05, 2017 5:09 pm

RME 802 for example has 8 analog outputs on the rear and 4 on the front via two stereo headphone jacks. What I'm wondering is can the 4 front channels be set up (independently) like the rear to feed 4 more studio monitors (of course unbalanced outputs)? Or do the front jacks only mirror the rear as one can select. The answer is probably there, but it hasn't been clear to me.

Thanks,
Eric

The RME site says:

12 Outputs . On the rear: 8 balanced TRS. On the front: Two hi-power TRS stereo phones outputs provide high volumes even with hi-impedance headphones (playback channels 9/10 and 11/12).


I would take that to mean that they are independent.

I have the UFX rather than 802, but it looks like the same basic design. My headphone outputs are separate destinations in the mixer, so you choose their inputs independently from the other output mixes.

Yeah that's the way I thought it probably worked, the UFX is very similar. There was another brand interface mentioned that apparently can only monitor the rear outputs, either in pairs or a mix down I think. I believe they also numbered the front jack in succession with the rear ones, as they were additional outputs.

You can download the 802 user manual from rme.com and verify. Their manuals are detailed about which ports do what.

Great idea. I've been reading up on their products, but haven't checked the manuals.

Eric

Edit: Took a little bit to figure out where the manual was, but it's all there as you say, and spells out clearly that headphones jacks can also be used as line outputs.
