I have worked on a lot of different systems, by SSL, Neve, Trident and others, and notice that there are MANY opinions on carrying the ground wire in a cable. I am wondering about advice any here could give me, or even opinions for that matter... I have both balanced AND unbalanced gear in my patchbays. Some people say only tie all the Input jacks to ground, others say only the output jacks to ground...( In the cable I mean, as in break the screen on the other jack) Currently I have both input and output jacks tied to ground and it does OK, but sometimes there are anaomalies. If I untie the unbalanced stuff, will it still work? I know for many this is actually a passionate subject with heated tempers ( jeez we are geeks ! ) but I'd like to hear all the opinions.
