    B112W inputs query

    First posting, so hopefully someone can help.......

    Are the 1/4 inch/ xlr inputs both balanced (I'm not sure what "servo" means in the spec)? Basically, I plan to plug in a keyboard via a standard jack and wonder if I will need a DI box?

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, they are balanced inputs.

    I'm not sure as to why behringer call them servo balanced inputs, but it could perhaps be that only one side of the balanced pair actually is used for the signal while the other side is balanced towards ground.

    Many thanks for your reply Robert. Re your answer ....... So, does this mean I need a DI box to run a (korg) keyboard into the B112w?

    Thanks again.

    As a soundguy I always use a DI to protect my gear and eliminate possible hum.

    But in your case you can just plug it in directly into the speaker. If it hums then you'll need an isolating DI.
