And I see that you focused on the 1 and 2 terminals while I focused on the "out" (4 and 5) terminals.What is this device?
Use an ohm meter and see if 1 or 2 is connected to ground(3). If either of them is, that's neutral. My bet, if either of them is connected to ground, it would be 2.
Sorry that I didn't have enough info on the device. It's a CBS Audimax 444. I replied to the post with a schematic and manual website if you don't mind looking at it. Thank you for your help.And I see that you focused on the 1 and 2 terminals while I focused on the "out" (4 and 5) terminals.
That's what happens with scarce information. (smiley with shrugging shoulders)
Now that you redirected my focus, it looks American.
I'm an student , and current intern in a studio in LA. My boss is a big gear junkie, so the Audimax belongs to him. He texted me with this issue last night. I'm a former avionics technician on aircraft but I have little to no experience with audio gear. I came across this site last night. It's amazing how knowledgeable the community is.A blast from my past!!! As the schematic shows, this is a balanced audio in / balanced audio out smart ALC device. The + and - markings are arbitrary phase indicators so you don't get a phase reversal through the device. The standard setup has this for long-time-average level control, and a Volumax for smart peak limiting. Classic a.n.a.l.o.g gear, kilobucks back in its day. Why do you have this and what are you going to do with it?
Thanks for the help. I'm new to the site and have learned a lot already. You guys are amazing. I can see how some one could become a fanatic.That drawing shows, "twisted shielded pairs". That's 2 wires and a shield (in each cable). They are transformer isolated. It looks like my first guess is right. They do not touch, "ground". They do not touch each other. They are not of a certain polarity. 1 and 2 are audio inputs. 4 and 5 are audio outputs.
Hey! No need for name calling!Thanks for the help. I'm new to the site and have learned a lot already. You guys are amazing. I can see how some one could become a fanatic.
