Technical question about XLR converters 2019-02-04 05:43:07 I'm planning on getting a pair of Sennheiser HD800s and an RME ADI-2 amp/dac. However whilst the Sennheiser HD800s comes with a lovely XLR cable, the RME ADI-2 amp/dac doesn't have an XLR input. My question is: Would I still be getting the benefit of XLR if I used an XLR to 6.3mm jack converter? This question is probably born out of complete technical ignorance, so let me add this just to show I'm not a complete noob. As I understand it XLR repeats the signal over two wires which means in case of electrical interference there will be a second untainted signal. But it isn't clear to me exactly how the type of jack affects this.
