If we are talking DN360 (without balancing transformers  and if your trying to send it an unbalanced input),  just make some dedicated xlr LEADS that swap pin 2 and pin3 in the male xlr of the lead for the inputs and female xlr lead for the outputs . just as  some bonus info ,"if/WHEN" you have problems of sound cutting out intermitantly on a dn360 ,remove and bypass the (pointless and expensive) power bypass relay on the internal circuit board  that the xlrs live on.(working on this is horrible ,I bypassed the relay and still didnt  bother swapping the pins of the xlrs on this board due to the design) The demon of the pin three hot unbalanced  un-standard will probably haunt us forever.

Thanks for that, I do remember making a "frig" XLR lead, years ago..

Beginning to wonder if the awesome sound of this Eq, outweighs this pin3 hot, unbalanced nightmares.

I have a few BSS xovers (& FCS 960's) with the same problem. It is easier to just make the cables than try work on the PCB's Total PITA!

KT nailed it with the look of black faders on silver/white backdround rather than black everything on most others (the dumbest design to this day!!),the lack of jack sockets and electronic balancing is inconveniant . but once they are racked and cabled there is no issue.
 pin 3 hot  or not they were not the industry standard for nothing.
