XLR to RJ45 adaptor wiring

For use with the Leon Audio Power Point Remote Control.

This product interconnects using analog data on standard XLR microphone cables. 
This adaptor allows CAT5 wiring to be used as well. 
CAT5 and microphone cable may be freely mixed within the system. 

CAT5 cable and connectors are mechanically inferior to professional grade microphone cable and XLR connectors.
Although commonly used, CAT5 is not ideal for use as temporary wiring. Avoid hand crimped RJ45 connectors if possible as the strain relief is only a figment of the designer's imagination.
Use CAT5 cable at your own peril.

Suggested adaptor wiring 

At least 2 conductors are paralleled for each XLR pin.
This provides higher reliability in case of breakage of the delicate CAT5 single strand cable.
RJ45 pins 1,2,3 & 6 are all connected to XLR pin 1 to lower the DC resistance of the signal's return path.
