Hi can anyone help as I have just tried the Balanced XLR pre outs PCA-2 to RCA on my Leak amps (TL12) and the sound is there but very quiet.
I am using the rca outs at the moment and am very happy as they are good Van Den Hul Orchid leads. They are working wonderfully. But I am thinking of retiring the leak tl12,s and getting some of PS ,s power amplification after hearing them at a dealership… Very impressed with the very fluid reproductiion and headroom.
I understand the theory of a balanced output ’ wire 1 earth and 2 and 3 either side of the positive phase. First question is this the way the PCA-2 is wired or is it different that being the reason for the low output… ?? The XLR 2 and 3 are both wired to the positive pin on the rca… and both jacket and earth from XLR are wired to the outer earth of the RCA…
I am imagining that the output wont work unless it has a balanced input at the power amplifier end ?? Is this the case or is the wiring config explained not correct for the PS Pre… ??
The XLR RCA leads are only cheap chinese ones and were bought just to check the outputs … Not as a permanent solution…
Any help would be of gratitude…I am an industrial panel engineer and have the skills to make up new XLR leads if needed. Am I missing something ?
All the best everyone
