RCA out instead of XLR on LIO-8 possible or even recommended for no loss of Sound Quality ? ...


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I'd like to use my LIO-8 on another preamp that only has RCA inputs, no XLR's. Can I have a cable made with only RCA outs on channel 1 and 2? Can I expect a loss of sound quality vs the XLR's? Cable length will only be 3-4 feet. Is my only option XLR to RCA adapters? Thanks!

Redco can make whatever cable you need. They know the LIO-8 very well. Prices are very reasonable.

Redco made my first cable, a DB25 to XLR. I also use WireWorld TRS to XLR cables. I was just wondering if I or anyone would be able to sense a gain or loss in sound quality going from TRS/DB25 to XLR vs TRS/DB25 to RCA for a short run.
