Looks like a case of mistaken identity.

Unless Jason got it wrong, the answer is yes. The standard for routing balanced audio with XLR is that male connectors outputs audio into female connectors, and that there is a female connector. Note that it's the same way in the other end of the cable, but the cable has the other role in that connection.

 

Hope I'm clear enough. But I guess I'm no more clear than a freeway with a meter of snow on it.

Any normal balanced amp I wouldn't even ask.  But since the adapter sinks the cold wire to ground... just thought I'd make sure it was circlotron friendly.

Oh, that's an XLR -> RCA adapter... I somehow saw an XLR connector (for soldering to a cable). Sorry. Where's the facepalm smiley? m-(

 

If I were to wire it, I would avoid connecting an active output to ground. Just sayin'. But I'm not even entirely sure the adapter does that, it could just connect cold to cold and leave the ground out altogether.

I said absolutely nothing about any Bose headphones or any V shaped sound signature in regard to the D7100. And I have qualified all my statements by saying these are out of the box impressions.

 


Sorry - it's been a long day at work, didn't get home until really late. Must have misread the user name!

I'll revisit that again once new toy syndrome wears off but the Mjolnir is a pretty incredible amp. In particular, the Mjolnir + the new Denon D7100 is just stunning. I've also tried the HD800, LCD-2, HE-5LE and K701 and they all sound great but these new Denons + the Mjolnir just creates music.

 

BTW, my source chain here is a Mac mini -> firewire -> Metric Halo ULN-2 -> coax -> Denon DCD-A100 SACD Player/DAC connected single ended to the Mjolnir. I've also tried the ULN-2 connected directly via balanced cables but the Denon is so much better that the lack of a balanced connection is irrelevant.

How cutting-edge can you get, congrats on being first on the blockbeerchug.gif!

Nah leave it there, it's hilarious.

I completely share your opinion of our D7100 friend though wink.gif.

ALL ABOARD THE HYPE TRAIN!!!!

(Let's try our best to NOT do that in this thread.)

One you all suck :p  Two Mjolnir trigger pulled :D  But looking like it'll be a month before I see it so... no impressions for a while.

Definite Peak V Mjolnir. This works. biggrin.gif

 

Thanks Solude!

post #431 of 3247

@TwoEars - no worries. Getting back on track ...

 

So far the only thing I dislike about the Mjolnir is that it only has a single input. Kinda makes things inconvenient for us vinyl users. Did I see somewhere that the Schiit statement amp is intended to address that limitation?

I can't wait to see what you think of it. Remember its got a big chassis heat sink and you can't fry an egg on it.

So apparently it's only OK to post early impressions if those impressions are negative. I get it now. Thanks. I won't comment on Mjolnir any more either then because I have nothing bad to say.

 

Don't worry Kstaken. He's only being a brat because it's not a GS-5. biggrin.gif

I know you didn't say the alleged D7100 comments. My comments were directed at that member. You need to have a break from the internet. You can't get all touchy feely QQ all the time wink.gif. The whole, whoops, I confused two members with similar looking names if funny. It happens all the time.
