Quick note.

Operating manual for Denon DN-X500 and DN-X900

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.
