Question for Lamm experts: when connecting a Lamm L2REf to an M1.2Ref what type of cable should be used for best sound quality - XLR or RCA with shorting plugs in the amplifier?
SE!

however you can get a Single ended Balanced cable which is what Nick did when he did my setup

Here is what he did


Pin 2 on the XLR to center pin on RCA, pin 3 on XLR to outer shield on RCA, Pin 1 on xlr connected to shield on XLR end and no connection on RCA
Your system is completely different from the L2 / M1.2 in technical terms - as far as I can read in the Lamm site the XLRs of the LL1 float (do not connect) the pin 3 and the ML3 grounds it.

yes

My point however was that a SE Balanced cable can be made. I use them from my A810 to the Doshi pre and then from the Doshi pre to my Lamm LL1

The R1s are better than the Cr1s. But the CR1s are fantastic to my likings. And at that price point nothing similar that I know.

Not sure if you have a problem with the CR1s highs, the R1s may be your thing. They are very similar there. The R1s have more weight, impact or body if you like in the presentation, more punch. All happens in a larger scale and with a majestic presentation - And then the main differences happen in the low end. But mids and highs are very similar.

If you can listen to the R1s at you place with your gear. I did commit to them without, but I did like the CR1s very much so was confident. But if that would not have been the case, I would not have committed without having a long in house audition. Your TAD dealer, having bought the CR1s from him should be able to provide this. Maybe the more extended low end helps you with the highs as well. But I agree: to commit on such money, you have to love the speakers and have 100% no doubt on them.
If I'm not mistaken aren't the CR1 and Ref 1 coaxial driver the same? If so then how can they be "very similar" in mids and highs, they s/b identical other than low mids where the woofers start to roll in.
