Great stuff, Mr. Wonks!
Will it survive immersion in a half pint of beer? (This is not a dare :headbang: )

That's a waste of half a pint of good beer!

Doesn't have to be good beer, you can use Carling for testing purposes.

Errata: I've just realised I'd got the XLR pinout wrong, and had pins 2 and 3 crossed over in the photo-mark-up and text. So the red wire does go to pin 2 and the black wire to pin 3.

Sorry chaps.

Doh! I should have spotted that -- pin 3 is always the one in the middle on an XLR! :headbang: So that makes much more sense -- black as the cold side and red as the hot. :-)

Though Shure use red and blue, with blue to pin 2 (+) and red to pin 3 (-).
