Pass Labs use gold plated jumpers that stick into the outside of the XLR jack. Don't know if they make them or buy them somewhere. This is quite simple devices and you could get off buying some good quality, thick wire (maybe you can get gold-plated if you try hard enough) and make them yerself!

I bet if you moan hard enough someone might even consider buying wire, have it goldplated and nip off a few pieces for you.

There has to be something in the water.....

Just make an interconnect with an XLR in one end, and RCA in the other...and short minus to ground at the XLR...and presto! you got the whole shebang in one cable

I use a on-off switch to toggle between XLR and un-balanced input for my Aleph 5.

They are custom. I should start selling them.

Is that also your experience?
The box is much the same as the Aleph L, a single-stage, single-ended
design. It has more distortion than the SBOZ or Aleph P and the
character is 2nd harmonic, where the Aleph P is 3rd harmonic.

Most prefer the Aleph P circuit, but not all.

I made my own jumper using piece of 14AWG solid copper wire. Plugs just perfectly into the XLR socket. Works great.

Thanks Nelson for commenting on this.
Usually 3rd harmonics are experienced as a bit agressiv sounding, but most people describe their Aleph_P not as such. Is distortion in the Aleph_P so low that it hides its 3rd harmonics in the sound picture?

How does the B1 fit into this range?

Regards,

Lucas
