I just purchased a pair of Neumann KH120A monitor speakers and am in the process of calibrating them for my room. Can I adjust each monitor differently?
I want to run two balanced microphone signals down one four-core screened cable, using five-pin XLRs at both ends, with short dual-XLR3-to-XLR5 splitter leads at each end. Are there any inherent disadvantages of doing this?
