Question about Denon AVR-3805 Receiver
I have two front speakers that are powered studio monitors that I'd like to use as my Left/Right. I made XLR-RCA cables that are going to run from the speakers to the receivers pre-out. The speakers are Genelec 1037C's
Your Genelec 1037C monitors are professional design with balanced inputs. Balanced inputs expect a low impedance signal with pin 1 earth, pin 2 hot and pin 3 cold. Because the Denon amplifier supplies a pre out for the front speakers (the first pair in the set of pre outs) at 1.2 volts and high impedance, you will need to convert the signal close to the amplifier with a stereo active DI box. Plug the pre out directly into the input of the DI with a SHORT lead and then plug two standard balanced microphone type cables ( XLR to XLR) into each of your active monitors. You cannot make a cable that is RCA to XLR by shorting pin 3 to earth to do this job properly. The inputs on your Genelecs expect a signal in the range -6dBU to +6dBU for rated output. A suitable DI box would be for example a Klark Teknik DN200. Hope that helps.
