I'm building my first set of balanced XLR interconnects and I want to know if I should attached the shield to both ends of the cable? I saw the cable building schematics on the Rane website where both ends of the shield are connected but I remember reading that some people advocate attaching the shield at the source end only. I'm a bit unsure as to which approach to take. I don't want to experiment and try it both ways - I just want to build the cable and be done with it.
**Note: I know which pin to connect the shield to, I just want to know if I should connect it at both ends.
I tried to find the answer using the search button but I really couldn't find a direct answer.
