XLR Outputs 4 weeks 1 day ago #57003

On the miniDSP Studio, it says for output that it has
  • 2 x AES-EBU on XLR connector
But these are labeled 1&2 and 3&4. What kind of cable do I need to connect it to my DCS Bartok DAC, which has 2 XLR inputs?

1&2 is one stereo channel. You can connect this with one xlr cable to the dac.

So 3&4 is the other channel? This is very confusing. If both channels are on 1&2, I would need to split them somehow.

No. For your setup you would use 1 as the left channel and 2 as the right. You would not be using outputs 3 and 4.

This is assuming that each input on your DAC is expecting a stereo digital input, right? If not and you want one mono channel per input then you could use say channel 1 for the left and channel 3 for the right, and use two cables to make the connections.

No. One XLR is Right, and the other is Left on the Bartok DAC, so far as I know. XLR is usually a mono connection.

Digital xlr is usually stereo connection in one cable.

Analogue XLR is but digital would usually be stereo. Your DAC may welll use mono digital inputs though, which is why I covered this possibility in my reply above.

It was unclear whether I could do this (route the channels separately to the two XLR outputs)
Thanks
