Can I use my AKG 7XX with the LCX balanced output?
I received my LCX amplifier and I'm eager to try it out. After reading the instructions I came across a warning,
"Do not modify a single-ended 3-wire cable to connect a 4-pin XLR". The warning goes on to say damage could result and that a commercially purchased cord would operate properly. I had previously purchased a set of Massdrop's AKG 7XX headphones and in anticipation of receiving the LCX I ordered a balanced cable for it (best in the verse cables @ https://bestintheverseaudio.com/ ). Pictures of the cord/connector included.
Now I'm not an electrician or an electrical engineer, but even though these cables were bought from a reputable cable provider, based on the 3 prong connector that the AKG requires, I can't help but feel concerned that this is exactly the sort of situation that I'm supposed to avoid with the LCX. Please advise so that I don't inadvertently cause damage to my new amplifier!
One other question, I also have the Cavallie CTH+ SDAC- it's manual makes no mention of the concern regarding headphone cables; will an improper cord (three prong cord to balanced 4-pin) cause damage with that amp as well?? Thank you for your time and assistance.
