Upsamplers, DACs, jitter, shakes and analogue withdrawals, this is it.

Remember to wire the connectors according to Lavry recommendations....

Balanced carries two signals (let's call one "+" the other "-") and ground. For the standard Cardas (or other) XLR to RCA connectors one of the pins, usually 2 is +, the other pin 3 (-) is connected to ground.

Instead of this configuration Lavry recommends to float the pin 3 of the XLR connector instead of connecting it to ground. You could built your own XLR to RCA "Cardas" adaptors or you could just disconnect pin 3 from ground in a commercial adaptor (difficult to take the Cardas apart though).

Finally instead of using the floating adaptors, there is a switch inside the Lavry DA10 that converts the output of the Lavry to single ended. Either way works, although for some reason Lavry recommends the adaptor one in the manual.
