The Proper Way To Connect a Balanced Output To an Unbalanced Input

When connecting a balanced output to an unbalanced input on modern audio gear, the proper way to do so is to connect the non-inverted output on the balanced output to the unbalanced input, and leave the inverted output unconnected. Many adapter cables, designed primarily for use with microphones, short the unused output pin to ground. While most equipment, including ours, will tolerate this without damage, it is not recommended, and may unnecessarily stress the output circuitry on your processor or preamp. This adapter was specifically designed to work optimally on modern balanced audio gear - and leaves the unused output line unconnected.

No magic. Simply performance

These new high-quality cables deliver the performance you need in a slim, flexible, easy to route cable. Solid brass connector bodies, with a durable and attractive black surface finish, overmolded internal connections, and heavy gold plating on all electrical contact surfaces ensure a long trouble free service life. Flexible well shielded cable offers excellent electrical performance and protects the integrity of the audio signal. Precision engineered narrow profile connectors offer plenty of clearance for the closely spaced connectors on the rear panel of modern high-channel-count processors.
