Hey guys and gals,
Haven't been able to find a good answer for this question. We have a Barix Exstreamer with a rca male to xlr female (Cable that is still unbalanced) into an Optimod 8400. We are a small mom and pop station so money for a matchbox is not going to appear anytime soon. We have an old ATI P100 turntable amp.
Now my understanding is that most of the old turntables (Technics SL1200 MKII) were unbalanced. So my theory is that I should be able to run the output of the Barix Exstreamer (unbalanced) into the P100 then go XLR (balanced) to the Optimod 8400. In theory I should go from -12db unbal to at least +4db bal.
Can anyone see a reason why this wouldn't work? I am just trying to re-use what we already have laying around.
