So I bought a pair of B&K M200 monoblocks, and both have a VERY finicky unbalanced connection at the amp. I took them into a shop and they tested out fine, but with my cables, if you so much as BREATHE on them, major distortion & popping comes out of the speakers that could potentially fry them.
I don't want to risk this with the new Totem Hawks that are on the way.
The amps have balanced connections that I'm sure are much more stable, but I don't have a balanced preamp (Dared SL2000a). Would there be any issue with using unbalanced to balanced cables (rca to xlr) from the Dared to the amps?
