XLR Male to RCA Female Adapter
XLR Male to RCA Female Adapter is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well and saves timeConverts from rca to xlr easily without wiring. The rca connection was a little loose, but the signal is clear and connector doesn't fall out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good shtuffWorks great with my onkyo tx-nr609 and inuke3000dsp. No need for a cleanbox worth this setup. Upon hooking it up I thought I had an issue but it turned out to be a ground loop. So I used a cheater plug to avoid the third prong of the pkug on the inuke and its fine for now.

XLR Male to RCA Female Adapter


So this takes a balanced signal and sends it to a RCA - Which then the signal becomes 'unbalanced'? New to this 'balanced & un balanced' thing.... Also will the signal quality change? More noise? Less resolution etc... ?
Asked by: Dr Noob
This is a cheap alternative to converting a balanced or unbalanced signal. In most cases this will work fine but introduced noise is a possibility. Signal quality reduction is not so much of an issue although signal strength can be a problem with some devices.
