Not that it is a big issue, but the DDRC-22A XLR are at inverted locations.

Usually when we look at a the back of an audio component the left posts are seen at the right, why? Because when we look at the same component facing it then left is left and right is right.

The DDRC-22 had me plug my wires crossed over.
It has no issue on sound quality what so ever, but one of my wire pair is short and having then crossed did not helped so much fitting the unit in the very narrow free space of my audio rack.

It is what it is, but would it be possible to get an option to be able to invert channels in a next setup software release?

@Jackox,

Good suggestion but you're basically talking of swapping not only the software but also all the silkscreen on the rear of the units I guess. We call Input 1 = Left and Input2 = Right (i.e. In1&2 = L&R). Am I missing something here?

Something we can see in the future. Always happy to improve our products.
Thanks for the feedback.

Yes it is exactly that.

Close to pro and some highend processors inputs and outputs could be simply called 1, 2, 3 etc. and nothing more.

In the case of the DDRC-22 series I do not think it is worth updating the back plate markings, selection in the software should be good enough.
Besides, this would add some flexibility only few processors offer.
