Best cables for connecting iLoud Micros to interface?

Postby jeffdavis » Sun Jun 09, 2019 8:43 am

Hope this isn't a dumb question, but I just got some iLoud Micro monitors and realized I didn't have cables that would connect to my audio interface. I have a Tascam UH-7000 which has balanced outs on XLR Male jacks. The only cable included with my monitors is an 1/8" to RCA doodad. What's the best way to connect these things? RCA or 1/8"?

If RCA, I'm guessing I'd need a pair of XLR female to RCA male jacks? Would there be any problems going balanced to unbalanced? Thanks in advance! :)

This forum is for user-to-user discussion. Sorry to hear that other users haven't chimed in to answer your question. You should be fine with cables that have the proper connections on either side and RCA vs 1/8" on the iLoud side will not be any great difference in audio quality at all.

You're welcome! I have one pair connected to one of my PCs where I use both inputs (not simultaneously though I really just haven't tried that) and I don't notice a difference at all so there's also some real-world data for you :)
