Question: For the XLR input, which pin is hot and which is cold (2 or 3)? My DAC can output both. And will it damage the LCX if the hot and cold is reversed?
The professional standard in the US is pin 2 is "hot" and is marked with a plus sign. Pin three is the minus connection. I would be sure Alex is aware of this standard and followed it. Using the reverse connection would lose absolut phase and is not recommended. We hope all manufacturers keep the correct phase throughout their equipment including headphones. HTH and is timely, as I don't see a date you posted it.
