5-way's are common, inexpensive and very flexible.

Mouahahahaha, I love this. Since the grounds are already connected in the amp I wouldn't even need a switch or anything, no downside to daisy chaining the plugs?

Just make sure you only have one thing connected at a time, or you risk letting the magic smoke out! :eek: 

 

If using TRS, be careful plugging/unplugging as you will make a temporary short if done while the unit is on.

Do I have to power down the unit before inserting/removing TRS phones?

 

Having been inside the amp, does this look like it would work? :D

This is true even when TRS is being used alone like Koiloco has?

That usually true for all 1/4 jacks by the way it is being plugged in. The short happens half way of inserting the plug between the channels. With most audio equipment is not bothered by this because it is of a very short duration. If you leave the plug half way into the socket it could be a problem if your turn up the gain when music is playing. You will not have that issue with the XLR connection. The same thing happens with 1/8 plugs as well. Just not be very slow in inserting the plug in the amp.

Nope!  :)

The XLR and 1/4 would be fine.  The 1/8" is not going to work!  There's a board behind (screwed) the front panel. 

You could however move the 1/8" to the right side.  :p

I'm glad you kept my dream alive after shattering it and smiling at the same time haha :P. This will get done! Not sure when (don't have any power tools) or a mini-x yet (should arrive tomorrow) but I will complete this! resistor network and all :D

Now, that's what I am talking about.  Nice.... :beerchug:

Neutrik makes black and silver 4-Pin XLR panel connectors. I like the latching type with the push-button release.

post #2622 of 3790

was just looking at that, will probably stick with these, symmetrically one on each side.

The load would be too big or something if I have 2 plugged in at the same time? I don't like the idea of that hapening... even by accident ... by a friend/guest whatever... any way to make sure no permanent damage happens if I accidentally plug both?

Assuming the wiring is correct and you aren't crossing the positive wires anywhere, the amp will be fine even if you have two headphones plugged in at the same time. Just keep the volume turned down all the first first.
