What does this mean when refered to amp?
Totally unbalanced in my opinion
Suprised no-one knows anything about this??
put a beer mat under one of the feet
the inputs can be either unbalanced, normal phono connection, or balanced, using XLR connection. Do a search, there is VERY good description on here. I think it even has diagrams as to how it works.
Its to do with using an in phase and out of phase ground.
If you're talking connections between kit - Balanced means the signal is sent normally down one pin, and inverted and sent down the other. The receiving device then adds (or subtracts - forget which!) the two signals. The idea being that any interference that is picked up between the two devices gets cancelled out in the subtraction/addition process...
A far more detailed and accurate description can be got here:
I use XLR between my CD player an amp, and aside from an apparently 'quieter' background, the actual sound level seems to be a quite a bit louder than when I tried a single-ended interconnect.
Thanks for that
