Digimax D8 analog outputs are not balanced

Hi there, I have several Digimax D8 but none of them has analog balanced output. Only unbalanced ones are available from these preamps. The specs from the user manual say that have 8 analog balanced outputs with 1/4" stereo plug (tip, ring, sleeve) but its not true. What can I do?

The D8 outputs are impedance balanced TRS so signal on Tip is matched by same current potential on Ring giving balanced performance.

Thank you for your response. For our facilities the actual effect was like unbalanced (half level signal at the mixer side anfd a little bit a noise) so, we was haved to balance the output using balancers tranformers but the quality from the signal is not the best. Balanced impedance is not the same that balanced signal, I think. Would be nice to get both of them.
