    hi guys, i recently purchased a Lynx Two A sound card and SCA preamps. I am looking to record some guitars using Guitar Rig, but just wanting to know what cable i should be looking at to achieve the best signal.

    Problem i am having is that the all of the inputs (whether it be the Lynx Card or SCA pres) are XLR.

    thanks for ur help.

    Buy a DI box to convert the Unblanced signal to a balanced XLR. I like the JDI by radial....

    ok cool. I orginaly thought i could get away with using a TRS connection into the guitar to an XLR input... but am i right in saying this would not be practical?

    Well it would essential half posible input signal, and likely create more noise. A Di is what you want

    My life certainly changed for the better when I met my DI......
