  5. Only the input - channel should be tied to ground, NEVER the output - channels. In effect you would be shorting the output devices to ground which probably wouldn't make them very happy:) For SE output only the + signals and signal ground should be used. That said, on my SS Dynalo Mk2, I have both RCAs and XLR inputs, with a toggle switch to tie the - inputs to ground for SE input via the RCAs. I don't hear a difference when using SE input and unshorting the - inputs via the switch. Maybe I need to listen more closely? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. For both Jose and penmarker: if you are only using an ss dynahi in SE mode, why even populate the - channels? All they are doing is burning power... Even then, the - inputs would be tied to ground, as done in the original dynahi /dynalo. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Your hand drawn diagram above appears to be correct, and does the same thing that the Neutrik RCA->XLR adapters do (tie the - signal to gnd). For wiring interconnects, etc., many tie the shield to the - side conductor, sometimes at one end only (telescoping ground). This is for noise rejection. For the pot wiring, if looking at most pots from the front with pins down, the furthest R of the 3 pins per gang is the input, and equates to the signal in your drawing on the left side of the pot. The middle pin is the wiper, and equates to the right side of your drawing. The pin furthest L is the gnd or common pin.

    An engine doesn't REQUIRE power, it MAKES power. Not sure what you are trying to get at with your quote...

    Appears to have the usual items necessary to generate hype: 1) fancy case - check 2) bullshit bingo laced ad copy - check 3) high price (so you know it's gotta be good) - actually not too bad at $1400 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
