    I’m looking to connect Yggdrasil XLR out to amp SE amp in. If you have a Jensen Isomax PC-2XR available please PM.

    Thanks for looking.

    if it's Yggdrasil A2 from a quality source, not sure the Jensen is necessary unless you have noise, grounding, or isolation issues.
    Yggdrasil SE outs are not bad quality to SE input amp like Eddie Current and the Jensen can sometimes soften or squash dynamics.
    not opposed to trying and buying, but the Jensen you seek is not a holy grail improvement.

    I’m using Yggdrasil A1 now but planning to upgrade to A2 at some point.
    I was under the impression that using Yggdrasil XLR was better-er on A1 and even more of a difference with A2.

    while the XLR outs are better to XLR ins on a balanced amp, I'm not going to claim
    XLR out + Jensen > SE out native to native SE in.
    just sayin.

    no waste of time at all, for anyone.
    let's leave the thread open for some days/weeks to see if a loaner or a cost effective deal emerges.
    it's worth verifying for yourself if there's low risk of lost $.
    just didn't want you expecting miracles.

    @jexby Have you also tried Cinemag solution Marv talked about earlier?
    Perhaps its the Jensen at fault here.

    Is an XLR-SE cable unfavourable compared to a transformer scenario?

    To reiterate, I didn't care for the 4:1 Jensen's, the easily obtainable ones for BAL to XLR.

    I have not heard the Jensen 1:1s, but they should be similar to the Cinemag 1:1s I rigged up.
