1 x 9V Power supply w/ IEC power cable (country-specific).
Why use an active converter?
There are three ways to get from RCA (unbalanced) to XLR (balanced)
(1) Use an RCA to XLR adapter
With an RCA to XLR adapter, you break the balanced input on your amplifier or pre-amp because 1/2 of the XLR input is shorted to the RCA’s shield. Depending on the design of the balanced input, this can have multiple undesirable effects.
(2) Use a transformer-based Converter
The optimal performance of a transformer-based converter hinges on precise impedance matching for both RCA and XLR sides. Despite correct matching, AC coupling induced by the transformer can lead to undesirable bass phase shifts.
(3) Use an active converter
With a DC-coupled active converter like this one, all the issues associated with the first two approaches are eliminated.
