This mixer has a mono switch and when connecting to a single L1® you should use this switch set to MONO and connect to only one output. Do NOT use any kind of Y-cable to join the two mixer outputs. See Why Not Wye for details.
Running mono, set the output to MONO above and connect one XLR output from the Denon DN-X500 to the Model II Analog input or Model 1S Analog input. Set the input trim so that you have a solid green light on the Signal/Clip light. Yellow is okay. If you see red, turn down the trim.
With a cable like this:
The EWI MP-105 is a special application adaptor cable for converting XLR to 1/4 TRS. This cable is typically used to plug XLR cord into balanced 1/4" TRS panel jacks commonly found on mixing consoles and processing equipment.
The Female XLR end is wired through to the 1/4" Male TRS end as follows:
- Pin One FXLR to Sleeve of MTRS
- Pin Two FXLR to Tip of MTRS
- Pin Three FXLR to Ring of MTRS
The 1/4" MTRS end is an EWI model P292S-BKG
The FXLR end is an EWI model ES3FB-GDP
The cable itself is constructed with 99.98% pure 22ga. high strand count copper conductors.
