Hello everybody!

I own a CAB M since a few weeks and everything worked and sounded fine!
Guitar > Pedalboard (with LeClean) > CAB M > Mixer > Speaker

Yesterday I accidentally (due to light conditions) put the end of the pedalboard-chain
into the speaker output instead of the instrument/Line input.
:doh:

The result was a very loud humming sound. After this it seems as if the unit
has "lost" some output (loudness), especially the balanced TRS jack output.

At least I could perform a firmware update and a factory reset on the CAB M
afterwards without problems.

Could my misfortune have caused some hardware damage to the unit?
Or is my panicking imagination deceiving my senses? :scared:

Thank you for reading!

Ronaldo

(If this should be the wrong place to ask, I do apologise...)

Hi Ronaldo,

you can't really damage the unit with a line level signal.

Take a good look at your levels now that you're not under stress and tell us how it goes. ;)

Hello Guillaume!

Thanks for your friendly and calming reply! Everything seems to be ok again.
Maybe I accidentally touched the Line/Guitar switches of my Eventide
Space, maybe it was just my imagination. ;-)

Anyway, I bought some of these: https://www.thomann.de/de/neutrik_ndj.htm
so it won't happen again.
