asked Feb 11, 2020 in Sceptre, Eris, R-Series by mariomattei1 (120 points)

I think I need a balanced Dual female xlr to 3.5mm / 1/8” mini jack. Or should it be unbalanced or dual 1/4” TRS instead of XLR?

I got Prosonus Eris 5 near field monitors to go with my desktop computer. They will sit about 4.5’ apart with the computer in the middle.

I got them used and need a solution. This is my first time owning studio monitors  thanks for helping a newb!

if the only thing you have is a 1/8" stereo jack, your best bet is 1/8" to dual RCA cable.

this said, most studio-grade audio interfaces only have dual 1/4" balanced jacks, not a 1/8" stereo one.
