SX900 Mic Jack TRS or TS
« on: March 06, 2020, 06:03:03 PM »
My SX900 is on order and should be here next week!

Before it gets here I would like to order the right mic. cable. I'm using a standard SM58 (XLR).

Does anyone know if Yamaha is using a balanced (TRS-tip, ring, sleeve) or unbalanced (TS-tip, sleeve) mic. input on the SX900?

Thanks Ingar.

I kind of hoped Yamaha might have upgraded the jack on the SX900. To me a balanced line is 'better' or an upgrade.

Why? It works fine! But I am no expert. I just plug the cables in and start the party😀😀😀

Hi Toril, what KeyboardED refers to, is that the XLR connector is better because you can use a condenser microphone, obviously this configuration will need phantom power available on the keyboard. Summing up the subject, the microphone connector of the SX900 is for dynamic microphones, which only need a jack, for domestic recordings, while the XLR combo can be used to connect dynamic microphones, (for domestic use) and also for condenser (for recording in the studio) for the latter it is required that the keyboard in addition to having the XLR connection (Jack + three holes) have the option of the phantom power button. I hope this helps a little to clarify the differences between a dynamic microphone and a condenser microphone. regards. Hans

Also, to me the most important benefit of a balanced line is it's ability to cancel/reject noise. Arranger/workstation keyboards are basically dedicated computers and computers in general make a lot of electrical noise. With the mic cable so close the chances are higher that the cable will pick up noise on an unbalanced line vs a balanced line.

This can become very technical. I hope we don't go too deep into the why or this will go beyond the scope of an SX900 thread. I'm sure there are threads about balanced v unbalanced lines.

And besides, for the application most of us are using these boards for, it's not a make or break deal.

I'm just happy to have a new SX900 on the way!!  ...and know which cable to buy

Yes, not too deep..
Remember pros on stage need bal because they use long Mic/audio cables. And they have a lot of equipment typically in the area, including bad power in some cases, lighting systems, BIG amps, mixers etc....
The unBal will be just fine for most of us.
