Hey folks! I’m wondering if this is possible:
1: Connect my (legacy) Audio I/O 1U to my (new/V2) jack board, center connector.
2: Connect my 1U Headphone output to the link connector on the output side of the jack board? (Presumably I’d remove the normalling jumper from the headphone output as well.)
From what I can tell, the link connectors are basically a ground wire and left/right (or one per jack), whereas the 10 pin connector would be carrying balanced signals, like the following (in no particular order)
- In L+
- In L-
- In R +
- In R-
- Input Gnd
- Out L+
- Out L-
- Out R+
- Out R-
- Output Gnd
It seems like connecting up the headphone output module to the link connector would work, though I also imagine it could potentially do weird things with the balanced signal (especially if actually using balanced cables)? And, maybe could lead to impedance weirdness?
But, If I’m sticking with unbalanced cables, is this a usable solution, at least until I eventually replace my 1U Audio I/O with the two newer I and O modules?
