    XLR Balanced Audio

    "3-pin XLRs can also be used for unbalanced cables"

    standard 3-pin XLR is used for balanced audio, how it can be used for unbalanced cables? as is mentioned on page Unbalanced Cable.

    When an XLR connector is used for unbalanced operation, pin 1 (shield) is ground and pin 2 is the signal.

    When going from an unbalanced output to a balanced input, pin 3 is grounded.

    When going from a balanced output to an unbalanced input, pin 3 is left open.
