    Genelec and Sound Card

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Hi everyone and Happy New Year!

    Next week I'm gettin a pair of Genelec 8050A. (I already ordered them)
    I just realised that they have only balanced inputs, and that my sound card M-audio Audiophile Firewire only has unbalanced outputs...

    I don't want to damage my new monitors because of some cables. Can I damage them, listening by an unbalanced connection?
    Will I loose any sound quality?
    What solutions do I have?

    Help please!
    Thank you!

    You cannot damage them. Use either Balanced or Unbalanced cables; the end result is still going to be an Unbalanced signal (since that's all your output is).

    If you want to learn *why* this is (which I always recommend), visit these sites:

    If it sounds good, it *is* good.

    Thank you so much!
    I was afraid I might loose quality or even worse, ruin my monitors.
