Balanced Cables
« on: October 19, 2019, 03:35:58 PM »
I need to build a couple new sets of cables and I cannot remember, or find a definitive answer on, if both sides of the ground should be tied to the shield or if one side should be lifted. If I take apart my old cables to look, I might not get them back together and I would rather not sacrifice working cables to find out. I am thinking I floated the mic end, but who knows?

When I make mic cables I connect both ends to the shield.

in order for signal to remain balanced so that the receiving equipment can reject it, it should be wired straight through
in:
small: MK4/4V > CMR > V3 or J.Williams Mod MicMan Jr or no pre at all >AD2K/R07/PCM-A10/Oade Warm 661/DR100-MKIII

smaller: 4061/4099 CORE or 4011/4018V> d:vice MMA



out:
home:Benchmark DAC1 HDR > Dynaudio BM15A active monitors
shop: Musical Fidelity VLink 192 Asynchronyous> coax> DAC1 > Rokit RP8 active monitors
