As a point of reference, the JBL Synthesis traditional line ups with the SDP-5, SDP-25, and SDP-40 all used StraightWire cables that were RCA to Phoenix to connect to the SDEC-3000, SDEC-4000, and SDEC-4500. Then it was Phoenix back to RCA cables to connect to the Synthesis amps.
If you went from the SDEC-xxxx to an amp that had XLR, then you could hit all three types of connectors.
If you picked up the SDP-40HD, then you could go XLR to Phoenix to the SDEC then Phoenix back to XLR to the amp.
At first it all seems silly and inconsistent, but the proof is in the pudding, and the complete Synthesis lineup with a JBL (extra cost) calibration in a treated room is a delicious pudding indeed!
(I'm getting close to seeing/hearing how the Lex/SDI/M2 pudding "tastes," forsaking SDEC and only using DiracLive.)
What I can afford, when I can afford it...
