I'm wondering what the story is behind the construction of the RED XLR > TA3 cables.
I was a bit surprised to find a resistor bridge in the XLR end of the cable.
The wiring is like so:
It seems to boost the signal.
Anyone knows what this circuit does exactly, and why it's there?
(Edit: It does not reverse the polarity. Apparently TA3 connectors have pins 2 and 3 swapped campared to a XLR3)
(Edit2: The Red manual pictures a XLR3 connector without the swapped connectors, not a TA3. This must be a mistake)
