    ... unless it's an A-100, which has good provisions for both.

    I have one of each. A100/147 or 760 uses unbalanced and an A102/222 which is a balanced rig.
    Both are great sounding but the unbalanced has more volume/headroom than the balanced hookup.
    Even though the balanced hookup is a little quieter with a little less hum when left 'wide open' it lacks the
    overdrive and total volume of the unbalanced hookups.
    For jazz and recordings the balanced hookup works best for me and for rock/blues the unbalanced works best.
    Some acts are louder so the 760 unbalanced hookup is the solution for me especially on outdoor stages.
    Overall the 147 is still my favorite Leslie with the most overdrive of the lot!
    The 760 has the most headroom and the 222 has the tightest sound for recordings.
    Differences are noticeable between all three types. All useful in different situations.

    Your "wish list" doesn't include MEE control, so you can IMO forego a kit and wire up as I've posted. Might not have been in this thread, but it was recently.

    Either of those switches look like they can be made to work. If you don't want to screw into the front of the organ, you can use stick-on velcro.

    The headphone jack is really a completely separate problem and I would treat it as such. But you're not going to want to forego a Leslie when you have one!

    Thanks Wes, I appreciate your guidance, as well as everyone else who's contributed! I believe I've enough confidence in the outcome to proceed. I'll hunt down the parts I need, and hopefully soon will get my Hammond and Leslie paired up.

    One final question (for now). The amphenol male connector on my Leslie somehow had the pin guide busted off (which means the cable can be inserted incorrectly. I know with care, and perhaps some alignment marks painted on the plug and socket, I could get by, but I want to go ahead and replace that plug as well while I'm at it. Am I correct in assuming that amphenol 9 pin Leslie plugs are universally one style, and can be fitted equally well to a cable or used to repair the defective fitting on my 710?
