Using normal balanced analogue microphone cable to interconnect AES/EBU digital audio signal i.e. in Genelec DSP systems

Analog and digital AES/EBU cables both have the same XLR connectors. However the cable constructions differ:

Cable specified for AES/EBU has the characteristic impedance of 110 ohms within the frequenc...

Is it normal that my monitor red LED first light up for few seconds during power on?

This behaviour at power on is normal. The monitor red LED can be triggered by the protection circuits, an amplifier clipping condition or the amplifier thermal shutdown. During start up it is most lik...

How long can my loudspeakers be on without powering them off?

As long as you want to. The idle rating for all GENELEC models is very low and there is no reason to turn the loudspeakers off every time.

Could I connect two sources to the 5040A at the same time, using one at a time?

Two separate stereo sources (iPod & CD/DVD) can be kept connected simultaneously to the 3.5 mm Jack and the Front L and R RCA inputs at the same time, but this may cause a slight increase of the o...

Can I use the 7050A or 1091A with 1030A's or with other GENELEC models?

The both discontinued 7050A and 1091A were designed to complement the 8030A, 8130A and 1029A, 2029A, 2029B in stereo installations only. They do NOT have the appropriate input sensitivity or maximum S...
