Technical M8 question for Michael -
Regarding the 4 pin XLR output-
Is it safe to bridge pins #2 and #4 in a balanced 4 pin > single ended adapter cable? I know some balanced amps can be damaged by the two grounds being connected. So it's best to ask.
This would be to use the M8 with line out level setting to drive an external amplifier. I know the sensible thing to do would to be use the 1/8 or 1/4 output, which are already a three conductor configuraton, but I would prefer the robustness of the XLR connector in this application, if possible.
Let me know if this is okay. Thanks!
