    Which one is better? RCA vs XLR

    Is XLR significantly better than RCA? If that's the case then why don't big manufacturers use them on their products? Kef r3, ls50 meta, elac dbr 62 etc. don't have XLR.

    Capacitor between XLR shell and ground pin

    The topic isn't new, but still seems to be contested. Here and here it is advised to add 100pF capacitor in a way that both pin #1 and shell are connected. Is this what's normally recommended or connection between the cable and pin should be severed? Also, what is the optimal capacitor...

    Clippy EM272 Wiring to XLR

    I have bought a pair of EM272 with a 3.5 stereo plug. It works great with my Zoom h4n, but i now upgrade to Zoom F3, and this one need XLRs. So my plan is to redo the wiring and connect each of the two EM272 to an XLR plug, like this product, but i have no idea where each cable should go on the...

    My headphone's XLR pin or connecter is melting/melted what the fuck

    Was just unplugging my AKG K371 and noticed that the XLR connecter's outer tube was a little sticky for some reason. As I took a closer look I was shocked to find that there were some golden liquid stains surrounding the outer XLR connecter tube (it looks something like melted gold in liquid...

    Mogami 2549 vs 2534

    Hi all, I'm going to knock together some interconnects and just wanted to double check as to the reasons one would choose one of these cables over the other. I'm almost positive the real world differences especially in such a short length of cable will be practically nothing and I imagine even...

    Splitting DAC XLR Out for Multiple Amps

    I would like to use the XLR output of my DAC (Gustard X16 short-term, maybe a Holo May in the future) to feed both my stereo (integrated) amp and headphone amp (one at any given time). Both amps have 50k+ input impedance. From similar posts, I gather that this is fairly harmless and has no...

    iLoud MTM monitors (balanced XLR) to Topping e30 DAC (unbalanced RCA); possible?

    Hey guys, I've recently acquired a pair of iLoud MTM's. I do not record music but just want to use them as desktop media speakers.

    Correct way to connect an nCore XLR amp to an RCA source

    Hello, I am wondering if there is a safe way to do this, since most solutions I have found on the internet are about the connection of the xlr terminals to the internals of the amp, or something. I want to connect the nc400 to an old unbalanced tube pre amp. Will something like this be ok...

    XLR Switch Grounding

    I'm building an XLR 2-in-6-out switch to have an easy way to switch between 2 DACs and up to 6 amplifiers. Is it safe to connect the two input (DAC) grounds together? My existing switch box from Douk Audio has all the output (amp) grounds connected so I know that part isn't an issue. Also, for...

    TV to XLR - recommendations

    I just bought a new Roku TV and would like to hook it to my speakers. TV = tcl 55s425-ca. This has audio outputs: - analog - the usual headphone jack, likely without volume control - digital 1 - looks like a TOSLink - digital 2 - HDMI ARC - new to me, but sounds promising. My speakers are...

    Hi! I'm thinking of buying a new microphone(Røde Podmic.

Today I have a USB microphone(Thronmax...

    XLR Y Cable

    Hi! I'm trying to figure out if it would be a problem / loss of quality if I use an XLR Y cable. It would be to split the signal from my Schiit Modius DAC to my Schiit Freya and a Schiit Magnius. The Freya and the Magnius wouldn't be on at the same time. Would it work without signal...

    Normal XLR cables vs Star-Quad XLR cables

    I have some pretty nice xlr cables right now. Probably way overengineered than necessary, Pangea Audio True Balanced xlr cables. I have heard there is some evidence that Star-Quad XLR cables reject interference better than other designs. Would upgrading to star quad xlr cables provide any...

    Beyerdynamic DT 1990 Pro - Possible issue with XLR plug

    Hi everyone, I recently bought DT 1990 Pro (Beyerdynamic) and I'm very pleased with how they sound. But today I just noticed that the mini XLR plug in the left cup is a bit loose. With that I mean that it's not completely fixed but it rotates a bit in both directions whenever I move the XLR...
