I am totally happy with my Athem played through my Ultrasound amp.

When I play out, on, say, a generic rock and roll PA at a bar, are there any guidelines for 1/4" jack vs. balanced three pin?
Since Anthem is part USP and half microphone, should I play through my Baggs pre-amp? If so, should I then go three pin to the board, 1/4", or does it matter??

cheers,

brent

Hi Brent,
I would recommend always going through the preamp if you have it available. A feature that is particularly useful in a bar type setting is the notch filter to keep feedback at bay. If you are running more than 10' or so to the PA I suggest using an XLR cable to keep the signal nice and clean.

Christian: Thanks for the "feedback."

So, there are no compatibility issues with the 1/4" jack as opposed to SLR; just a matter of strength of signal??

Brent,
No, there won't be any compatibility issues. The XLR is more to keep the signal shielded from outside interference.
