I have a amp that allows balanced (XLR) and unbalanced output. Currently I am running a cable that takes the two XLR output (left and right channel) and combine them into one single 1/4" jack. This amp is designed to run that way with no problem and the sound is clearly better than the unbalanced jack. I have a hunch that true balanced XLR out will sound even better but would like to be able to test that premise with an affordable cable.
Would appreciate any suggestions.
