    Ok, well i'm still a slight bit confused on the whole interconnect thing.
    Is there a big difference between the Analog Two, and the Analog Two balanced that they sell?

    I'll be using a Pioneer Elite 92 and an Emotiva XPA-3 if that makes any kind of difference.

    Some components accept Balanced connectors and some do not. If both pieces allow balanced, depending on the internal design of said component you might be able to get a purer signal. Also, balanced cables are better at canceling out noise due to balanced design. The noise issue is not usually an issue unless you have a long run.

    My take on it is if both pieces of equipment support it, go ahead and use it. Especially if they are both fully balanced components.

    Hmm ok, i suppose now i just need to figure out if my Pioneer Elite 92, and the Emotiva XPA-3, both except balanced connectors.

    Edit:
    Ok, the XPA-3 does accept balanced connectors, but i don't think my Pioneer Elite 92 does.




    P.S. I apologize for the big pictures, the thumbnails were not working for some odd reason.

    Just run standard RCA's. In a lot of amps the balanced is converted to unbalanced any way.

    What about XLR to RCA, or is that not worth doing?

    Not when you have RCA to RCA available. With your setup it would be RCA to XLR, and you amp most likely converts XLR to unbalanced any way so why all the extra work to have an odd cable. Its not needed, or in your best interest. Also to do it right you would need more than a cable if your amp uses a true balanced design.
