STUDIO MONITORING: BALANCED TRS vs. RCA OUTPUTS
I just wanted to ask a question regarding the outputs from my Recording Interface to my studio monitors.
What I currenly have is the Lexicon Alpha USB Recording interface and the MAUDIO AV40 studiophile monitors.
I have the RCA out from the Lexicon ALpha going into the RCA input of my Monitors. I noticed that there are Line Outs from the Interface and I read that these are TRS Balanced Line Outputs. On my Monitors there are TRS Inputs as well.
What I have right now is that the RCA outputs from my Interface goes to the RCA inputs of the Monitors for monitoring.
I just wanted to know what kind of difference will it make if I try monitoring my sound using the Lexicon Alpha's TRS Balanced Line Outputs connected to the TRS Line Inputs of the studiophile Monitors. Will the sound be better compared to that when it's connected via RCA? And what kind of cable should I get? Is it a regular Speaker cable I need to connect them?
Thank you so much in advanced for the help
