i've had a home studio in one form or another since 82 starting with a yamaha MT44 4 track cassette and to this day i have never owned a balanced 1/4" trs cable. what the heck do they do? my zed r16 and onyx 1200f have mostly balanced in's and out's as well as my 4 outboard comps and 2 effect proccessors,pre's, what have you. besides the XLR's,im using 15 or more "quality" 1/4" cables in my rig but none of them are balanced trs..all ts cables. my room is dead quiet and everything sounds great so im having no issues, so why all the balanced jacks on this equipment? if i swapped all these ts cables for trs, would i get a bit more overall headroom or a lower noise floor or some other kind of benefit. or is it just for longer cable runs like 20 or 25'. i would appreciate it if someone besides a cable manufacturer could explain it to me. thanks for any replies.
