i don't think so , it is just a cable with a stereo jack on one end and xlr on the other

Hmmm, odd.
Those are different signal levels. Line level unbalanced to mic level balanced?

again. i am not completely sure what it is!

Well, I dont know what its for...
it certainly isnt for connecting a line out on a laptop/discman/whatever to a mixer

I'd use a 1/8" to to 1/4" cable, or the cheaper way, a 1/8" to RCA, then an RCA to 1/4" into the mixer.

for when i can not get a cd player from the av coordinator

well
return the $30 cable goto the pawn shop, buy a$25 cd player.......
problem solved.

not to mention that running the headphone out into a mic input is sound to sound awful. Also, I dare you to turn on the phantom power ;-P

it was specially designed for use with that equipment
P.S. the phantom power has been on for 2 years

just telling people about the company so they have more resources to use. Peavey xr-860 (out of production)

Hmm, I couldnt find any info on that, but it smells like its a 8 channel powered board?

I've never seen a person run a boom box into a PA and call themselves an "Audio Engineer"
