I just bought a new preamp. The source will be the DS balanced outputs.
I may locate the preamp in two different locations;
Alt. 1: Close to the DS with 1m cable run and 5m XLR between preamp and poweramp
Alt. 2: Close to the Power amp with 5m XLR between DS and preamp and 1m XLR between preamp and poweramp.
Everything will be powered from the P10.
My new preamp is said to have a low impedance MOSFET output stage capable of supporting long cable runs.
I also need to retain maximum gain for the signal chain, so any voltage drop is disadvantagous.
Based on the above, will I benefit from Alt.1 or will the DS do just fine with 5m XLR?
