Mytek Digital Private Q2 Headphone System

Mytek Digital Private Q2 Headphone System Details

This Mytek Digital Private Q2 Headphone System was designed and put together as a comprehensive 4-Station Headphone/Monitor mixing solution for the studio or stage. The Private Q2 is a new version of the original Private Q, which retains all of the same sonic benefits and functionality, but now features Centronic D36 connectors instead of the older Canon-DL connector design of the original (those components for the original Private Q are still available, but have a lead time as they are not stocked and are built to order).

History of the Private Q

Mytek Digital Private Q Headphone System was originally designed by Michal Jurewicz (founder of Mytek) in New York during the early 90??s. Beginning at legendary Skyline Recording Studios, Mytek Digital Private Q2 Headphone System has found it??s way into the finest American recording studios. A workhorse used in daily production on countless Gold and Platinum albums; this studio standard delivers the best sound quality, loudest headphone amp and easiest operation completely latency free!

This new standard version, Mytek Digital Private Q2 Headphone System features a redesigned Multipin connector, slimmer personal mix station and smaller distribution station. All while keeping all the features and robust construction of the original.

The Private Q2 System

Private Q 12 channel headphone distribution system consists of a distribution/power supply rack, several satellite mixing stations and appropriate amount of snap-on DL-DL cables. Mixing stations mount easily on a mic or music stand and deliver 2x30 Watts of very loud and clear Class A sound. They give musicians comfort and the engineer peace of mind. Private Q is a self-contained system- no power amps or extra cabling is required. System is fully portable and can be easily setup in any tracking as well as living room. Here are two typical configurations of the PQ system.

Fixed installation

Fixed installation is recommended for a single room studio where the system is permanently installed. Usually the distribution rack sits in one place in the studio and is connected with the patchbay of the console using single 16 pair permanent cable terminated with a DL connector. The patchbay has 12 patchpoints designated for all 12 inputs of the system. The same type of installation can be used in a multiroom facility but requires repeated wiring in all studios. If there are isolation booths in the studio an elegant solution is to run a booth extension cable for each booth. Private Q frees up console's Aux sends.

Floating system

Floating system is recommended for equipment rental companies and those users who prefer not to run any permanent wiring in the studio. A mixed (combination of floating and permanently installed) system is recommended for the multiroom studios where the Private Q is going to be moved between rooms. Floating system uses existing microphone lines to feed the signals from the patchbay. Mytek will provide a DL to XLR cable for this purpose. If the system is frequently used fixed booth extensions are recommended to avoid inconvenience of running cables through the booth doors. A flight case is recommended for a floating system. Front End Audio can help with this!
