So I had my truepath up and running yesterday with unbalanced inputs.
I then hook up my input transformers and result is that the sound is very low and faint without bass.
I double check the wiring according to the transformer data sheet. I then think, "what if its a grounding problem?"
So i connect pin1 on xlr to AGND on truepath input and power up.
BIG SPARKS FLYING EVERYWHERE!!!!
What the hell just happened, and why???
Doesnt truepath want to have a GND reference? Or do you think it was something else?
The chip is fried, one of the legs broke off. And also the ferrite that connects AGND and Digital GND is totally melted.
Please help me, and more important, help me realise what I did wrong so that I dont repeat my mistake after I can get a new chip+ferrite.
