I have an ABC setup of a pair of Yamaha HS7’s and a Pair of Genelec monitors, and a Denon Passive pair connected to a Presonus Monitor station V2, audio source is a Focusrite scarlett 18i20, long story short … Only on the Yamaha HS7 if I mute / lower the main volume or even switch off the source button on the Presonus monitor control while still playing back a track there is still audio leakage from the HS7 at a very low level, this does not occur on the genelecs nor the Denons even if I swap the outputs. this also happens on the headphone outs, all 4 of them on the Presonus station !
What’s driving me crazy is that if the issue is with the Monitor station why doesnt it effect the Genelecs ! is it a TS Cable Balanced/Unbalanced issue since I have only the Genelcs with XLR connection and the Denons are passive through a Sub while the HS7’s and the 4 headphones are TS/TRS.
Please note that all inputs & outputs are connected properly, the leakage is NOT noise, it is audible playback specially the high frequencies which will effect the mixing process at higher levels (On the Genelecs) unless I switch off the Yamaha’s completely.
I will highly appreciate your insight …
