Golem's turned me onto a new pre/poweramp hookup strategy. the last post sorta died, so i'm reviving it here. he's been using a direct box between his preamp and poweramp, essentially going "balanced" between them. but i'm thinking of eschewing the box, and just running a nice XLR between them. has anyone else tried this? i'm thinking of using my Demeter's balanced DI out and going into my Stewart World 1.2's balanced in on channel 1. Would this harm either component? do i lose anything doing so?
