    Can you take a pic of the back and post it?

    My old Tascam M520 had a lot of RCA's on the back, and the old balancing amp.
    I had a lot of jumpers on that bad boy.
    It also had the RCA inserts that you had to jumper to complete the connection when you weren't inserting anything.

    yeah I get a pic up itll take a couple of days..lol
    I dont have a camera

    but all the Direct outs are RCA the Tape returns are Rca
    the bus sends are RCA both +4 and -10 16 of each of those
    line inputs are 1/4 in
    and Mic XLR oviously..

    Main outs are xlr and Rca

    Inserts are TRS go figure...lol

    fx sends are 1/4 left and right retuns are the same

    Well, sounds like you're in the same boat I was.
    The sends and buses are unbalanced.
    I just went and bought a bunch of RCA to 1/4" 8 pair snakes to deal with it (luckily, our A/D was a MOTU 24I/O - 1/4" ins and outs).

    I don't think there's a work around internally for those boards.

    ok upon futher reading of the Manual. Duh
    I dont have to worry about the inputs, the line inputs on the Ramsa are TRS Balanced. Now Il just have to convert the buses and the main outs to balanced
