Wanted - Balanced XLR's for Demo / Sale or Return

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Wondered if anyone has a decent balanced set of XLR's sitting in a cupboard that I could borrow to try out those respective connections on my kit. I've never tried them before and didn't want to spend silly money only to discover they were inferior / couldn't tell the difference. Obviously all postage down to me and if you were interested in selling at the end of the trial, even better. I would probably need them for around 2 weeks if that's not too cheeky.

Thanks all,

Trev

I am about to put some XLR cables up for sale later today.

They are from the Pro sector ie Van Damme, Klotz etc with Neutrik silver plated plugs.

Maybe worth trying,

I can do something for you Trev - I have a flight case full of them as I have a 5 way active balanced system, I'll sort out 3 pairs at contrasting price points but nothing above £50. 1m the length you require? I have Chord, Klotz, MIT, etc..

Both - that’s great, thank you. I’m not really up with (anything tbh!) but cables in particular, so I will bow to your superior knowledge. Looking forward to another play already, it shouldn’t be too difficult because for the first time ever, I can remotely switch sources on the amp and the streamer has RCA and balanced outputs.

Just in case you are unaware, balanced outputs are usually 4v compared to 2v unbalanced, so there will probably be a volume difference when switching sources.

I had no idea, that would have biased the audition somewhat wouldn’t it!
