EUROPORT PPA200 - True stereo output?

Hello everyone,

Would the signal output from a channel's balanced input using a TRS jack on that input be true stereo? I've been running the stereo left/right outputs from my guitar effects unit through the PPA200's stereo channel which has left/right inputs and it sounds beautiful. The thing is I'd like to use that channel for something else, hence my question.

Thank you for your time.

No, balanced TRS input is not a stereo input. It uses the same 1/4" jack. But the pinouts are different. A balanced TRS has pin 1 = shield, pin 2 = hot+, pin 3 = hot- (180 degrees out of phase).

That's a shame. Thanks for your answer.
