Auzentech X-Fi Forte connecting to TRS or XLR?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi,

Is it possible to hook up speakers with xlr or trs cables to the forte? If so what would i need to do so and would there be any decrease in sound quality?

I bought some Mackie mr5 speakers and was wondering if the above option will work or am i just better of investing in an external audio interface? What other ways can i connnect the speakers for the best audio quality?

I need to get my Jam on

You can't because X-fi isn't balanced. you will have to use something like this: http://cachepe.zzounds.com/media/qua...3d09fa0ba6.jpg

try your speakers with this cable first and see how you like it

Thanks sup.

Is there a noticable difference between unbalanced and balanced? my cables will only be running like 3-5 feet.

The x-fi forte has a digital output also is there a way to hook them up to that ?
