Neutrik NA3FM XLR-Female to XLR-Male Connector w/ Bleeder Resistor

Unit Price $29.99

Availability: Ships Within 1 Business Day

  • Modified Neutrik NA3FM XLR-Female to XLR-Male Connector Extension Adapter
  • Customized to include a "bleeder resistor"
  • For use with gear such as the Dangerous Music Liaison
  • Prevents transient spikes from damaging the internal components of the Liaison

  • In certain instances, equipment using “retro” and “vintage” design topologies may damage DC-coupled input stages, like those used by Dangerous Music and other high- end pro audio manufacturers. This occurs specifically when the manufacturer does not modernize the output stage to be compatible with the transistor/IC world of today.

    How does that happen?
    Good question! The non-terminated transformer’s secondary windings (“floating output”) build up a charge due to capacitive coupling in the transformer windings, which then gets released as a high voltage transient spike when the gear is patched or switched in, as is the case with the Liaison.

    I love my gear, how can I prevent this damage from occurring?
    If any of your outboard that you wish to connect to Liaison has a “floating output,” a qualified tech. can add what are referred to as “bleeder resistors” to the transformer outputs. Parts cost about 15- cents! If you don’t want to go this route, you can purchase this part that has integrated bleeder resistors inside to prevent that transient spike from damaging the internal components of the Liaison. Part Number: 100K-CM-TERM Description: 100K CM Terminator - XLRM to XLRF barrel

    What if I am not sure if the gear I am using has a “floating output?”
    First check with the manufacturer of the specific piece of equipment you are unsure about. You can also email your questions to, or call us at 845-202-5100. We have access to some (but not all) design schematics and will help out where we are able!
