Bomb setup! I need advice on best way to hook it up.

Here we go.

Neumann u87
to
avalon 737sp
to
apogee ensemble
to
macpro / logic 9

monitors: Yamaha hsw8 (2) and hsw10 subwoofer

i have xlr to xlr cables and xlr to trs

in short, how should i connect what to what, and what cables?

My main concern is the monitor/subwoofer combo, and what cables (xlr/trs?)

thank you!

Main thing to worry about is the output on the 737. You need a XLR to TRS cable to go into one of the Line ins of the ensemble. This way you don't get the double pre action that many make the mistake on.

The rest of it is elimentary. Hook the speakers however you like. TRS to TRS or TRS to XLR input on the speakers. Both are balanced signals.

BTW that chain is nice do not listen to those who bash the 737 an 87 combo.

Thank u very much, i'm heading down to the studio to try it out!

Give me a call in an hour or 2, and maybe you can tell me if i got everything right!

I dont think my chain's too bashable - i'm doing vocals only. mics also include a few AKG's, Blue Baby Bottle, and a Sterling Audio. I like the sterling, but my u87 blows them all out.

Was stuck between a UA preamp and the Avalon - avalon edged the UA.
