I currently have a Carver M500T Power amp I used for my Hifiman HE-6. I have a 4pin XLR female end wired to the speaker taps on the amp to connect my headphones. I want to be able to connect headphones terminated with TRS as well.
Would something such as this, be fine to use being the amplifier is not a balanced design?
I am also contemplating on making a 1/4" TRS jack to 4 banana plugs cable and just using all TRS cables for more simplicity. Again, being the amplifier itself is not balanced, would there be any danger of connecting the grounds for both channels together?

Manual cautions NOT to hook up any wires to one another. Given the PS configuration is the same across this entire series of amps, I'd suggest following the directions.
