Nope, it is only ok when it is the Headphones at the receiving end, and not an active device like a preamp or amplifierI thought balanced to single ended was OK? Not single ended to balanced
In order for any devices to be able to take in balanced input, they have to be designed for balanced input. Otherwise you end up shorting the Negative signals into ground
This is one confusing place where I keep telling people. Balance to Balanced, and Single ended to single ended, and never ever mixed up. All it take is just one confusion moment.
