    Every XLR cable I have tried on either one of my dynaudio studio monitors does not fit well into monitor's connector. I can get sound, but the connectors sit in their 'loosely' and does not provide for a stable connection. Has anybody with Dynaudio's have this problem? Please help because this is aggravating.

    Yup, you'd think they would put on a connector that locks in? Especially since they make a really decent monitor speaker. You can't fix stupid. Duct tape works wonders where nobody can see it.

    Duct tape my mouth and I won't be able to.......

    You could change the connector yourself, pretty simple operation.

    I have a pair of BM6aMKII I find that you have to push them in a little past what feels like there is no more room but there is. It's not a tight lock fit but it wont fall out and using mogami gold cables give an excellent non-colored sound unlike some other cables. If you still have problems contact Tc electronics (distributer of dynaudio product in the USA).

    You are correct. I guess I have just never had to use any force with an XLR connector before, but it went right on in once I put some force behind it. Thanks.

    There's a particular connection on our snake's stagebox that gets on my nerves, you need to hammer the thing in near enough, to get it to click - even though it's already 100% in, there's an alignment problem.

    I am very happy the advice I gave you worked out. I will assume that the cable went in further and that it made a good connection!
