    Hi all wonder whether you can help i am currently running a Tag dpa32 pre amp and i would like to drive a thresham pro power amp but it only has balanced XLR inputs...... Tag tell me they will sell me a lead rca to xlr for £84
    but i think it would be a lot cheaper to make my own ...
    i know that the rca hot will go to pin 2 of the male xlr but i am not sure where to put the sheild from the rca...? will it go to ground pin 1 or - pin 2...?
    any help much appreciated as my lass will not allow £84 from the house keeping....

    Regards Dek...

    It might be worth pointing out that you will only have half the attenuation of the fully balanced cable, by doing it this way. Wm
