BHK 250 amp, shorting plug on XLR inputs?

Dear PS Audio community,

I am from Berlin, Germany and this is my first post.
Last month I purchased a new BHK 250 amplifier. :slight_smile:

I was wondering if it’s recommended to short the XLR-inputs
while I use the RCA-inputs and vice versa?
Some other manufacturers like Mark Levinson recommend doing so to enhance performance and lower noise floor… I attached an example image.
Thank you kindly!

Best regards,

I’m going by memory, but I think Paul said to no to short. The design makes it unnecessary.


Welcome! Watchdog is correct, you don’t need to short them and it is not recommended.
