Cable connector impedance properties, please clarify

    When do I need to be concerned about impedance mis-matching when dealing with XLR <-> 1/4 connectors on the same cable?

    For example, do impedeance mis-matches only occur with XLR(bal.) <-> TS(unbal.) ends as opposed to XLR(bal.) <-> TRS(bal.) ends?

    Please clarify and reinforce this concept for me for me, it would be MUCH appreciated.

    The reason I ask is because I will begin using outboard pres sometime in the near future. I plan on taking the line level outs from the pres, sending them straight into my bal. MixWizard line level ins, therefore bypassing the preamp stage (duh). I just want to make sure that I fully understand the concept of cable connection impedance properties before I begin building the cables.

    Thanx for your patience and take care,

    I'll leave you with this ...

    if you still have questions we can refer to this and clarify some of the details
