The Palmer PLI06 brings you a Line Level Converter that acts as a dedicated interface to feed unbalanced stereo signals into balanced mono inputs.
The PLI06 mixes the stereo output to mono while impedance matching and signal balancing through the high-quality audio transformer. What’s more, the PLI06 also prevents ground loops as well as the annoying hum they result in. The PLI06 is entirely passive and requires no mains power or batteries.
For best results with laptops, you’re best using the headphone output which is usually a 3.5mm miniature stereo socket. Use a shielded TRS mini-jack to 2 x RCA phono cable for connection to the PLI06. Then, place the unit close to the signal source and keep the input cable as short as possible. This is because the unbalanced signal path is susceptible to interference. The PLI06’s output is also on a standard wiring male XLR connector. So its best to use a high-quality microphone cable for connection to the mixing console. Due to the balanced lo-Z signal PLI06, cable lengths aren’t critical while interference-free signal integrity is maintained.
