Changing IOs on LXP 1

Hi

I would like to change IOs on the lexicon Lxp 1 . The unit will stay unbalanced but i would like to have XLR s instead of mono cinch ....
What do you think about this, is it possible in the first place and is it worth ?


Thanks

"cinch?" All the LXP-1s I have seen have quarter inch connectors - isn't cinch another archaic name for RCA or phono jack or plug?

Basically, if there is room on the panel you can put whatever you want on it. But I would recommend using external adaptor cables - I haven't looked inside for way too long but I believe the jacks are mounted directly on a ciruit board. Seems like an awful lot of effort for such an old unit (though I love that old Lexicon sound!).

Jim Williams at Audio Upgrades modded mine way back when, perhaps you could ask him.

Sorry to jump on you - whenever I see "cinch" I expect some odd ancint ham radio plug!

A 1/4" plug to XLR cables work fine. Why would you want to mess with the reverb?
There are no hum loops, it's AC floated.

Thanks for replying, Jim. This was my first thought too. The upgrade you did to mine was wonderful, I used it for years before moving up to other units.

But by the way, mine and one or two others I know developed intermittent outputs - would that be a bad solder joint, and is it easy to fix? I actually miss that sound sometimes, and with the MFC it is a fine sound for 14 bit...
