Just purchase HRT Music Streamer Pro for my Grado's ....how do i convert the mini xlr to rca?????

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi just recently purchase some Grado's ps500, with G cush and Hrt music streamer II. I am just demo out the regular Music Streamer 2 till my newly order Music Streamer Pro arrives at my doorstep. I have one problem... and that is ...i'm currently using rca to 3.5 for my grado's. Now I can't use the MS pro unless, i convert the mini XLR on the Pro so i can use my excisting RCA to 3.5mm cables? Is there an easy way? I thought this;1. buy mini xlr to XLR convertor, 2. then buy converter for the XLR to RCA.... but which suppose be male or female? Let me know thanks.

Hi

 

I have just bought the HRT Pro and contacted:

 

http://flashbacksales.co.uk/acatalog/premiere_cables_xlr_.html about cables and

they have been very helpful, give them a ring I am sure they can help.

 

They have just started selling cables for HRT Pro on Ebay also.

 

Regards Bill

I'm curious about this myself.  My Music Streamer Pro is on its way and I can't seem to find any local ( and cheaper) alternatives to the Cardas Mini XLR to RCA adapter.  Are there any other options aside from the site mentioned above?  I would appreciate any help, thanks!

I have made quiet a few cables for the music streamer pro in various forms. On the xlr side you would use pin 2(positive) and pin 1(ground) and terminate the other end the the positive and negative leads to the corresponding rca connectors. That's if you want to ditch the balanced cable completely and only wanted unbalanced use. Or you could purchase some basic 3 pin xlr balanced cables and make your own adapters. With this route you still only use pin 2 and 1 on the female xlr side of the adapter.

Thanks for the suggestion moodyrn, though I'm guessing you'll need to do some soldering to make your own cables or adapters?  For now, I guess I'm looking for something pre-made, hopefully around $50 tops.  Maybe when I go the balanced route later on, I'll try my hand at making my own cables.

Yeah it does involve a bit of soldering. But there are a ton of guides to soldering online and its not as hard as you may think. The only pre made options I know of are expensive.

Hi. Many apologies for waking this thread from the dead.

 

 I am following the suggestions in converting a hrt music streamer pro from mini xlr to rca, but the resultant sound is really bad. Am using pins 1 and 2. Pin 2 is the phono signal carrying cable (centre cable) and pin 1 is the outer screened cable,

 

 I have also tried connecting the two negative xlr terminals together via a 2k ohm resistor but am getting a red light from my amp, which then shuts down.

 

 Any suggestions please.
