Code? We don't need no stinking code...

Also, I would argue they are not a violation in the situations I mentioned above. Certainly it can't be a violation to not use an equipment ground that isn't being used by the equipment.

Sorry, I couldn't resist. I just don't get off anymore on the blind rage rants.

Just because there is a knob doesn't mean you should turn it.

Nobody is arguing the acoustics from the FOH (front of house) systems are not quite as "revealing" (love THAT term, hahahaha) as a home system HOWEVER, you need to learn HOW that concert audio is recorded. Each mic and or instrument pickup is fed via a signal splitter (usually a 1x3 transformer in some configuration) to the FOH mix desk, a second mix desk- on or close to the stage -that handles the monitor mix for the performers and a 3rd that is the recording system feed. This can be a multi-track recording system that will take the tracks and be used for a studio mix down or in some cases, field mixed then and there in a production truck into a stereo recording.

Keyboards, drum machines, and every kind of electronic instrument and effects system uses the same inexpensive and frequently unbalanced interconnects. Ever hear of Direct Boxes (D.I.)? These are usually passive but sometimes active unbalanced to balanced interfaces to directly feed an instrument into the mix desk. BTW, the next time you see a electronic keyboard or drum machine, look at the power cable; standard off-the-shelf IEC AC cables plugged into stage boxes

Studios also use passive patch bays for analog signals and processors. The wiring for these patch bays is quite dense and snugly bundled as all proper permanent racks enclosures are.

You really need to go to a studio in person and learn first hand what equipment and wiring is used in a studio environment. You will not find anything exotic, regardless of what some claim since they too have never been in the wiring and control area of a studio.

what if you're so cheap you consider Mogami "exotic" ??

Maybe this has already been discussed so my apologies if so, but can anyone explain to me how Audioquest can claim to apply 72v to the wires in their DBS systems using a couple of 1.5v batteries?

Click here for pic of my 7.1 home theater system and here for pic of S2 surround wall mounting.

Click here for pic of my 2 channel system.

Most likely a switching inverter.

The lack of radiation shielding would also account for the diminished mental faculty of the people who buy and use them.
