Connecting unbalanced input to balanced output?

Post by fisonic » Mon Jun 07, 2021 3:33 am

Hi Folks,
So I have a headphone amp(Art Headamp Pro 6) with 6 aux unbalanced stereo inputs, which I’m looking to connect to 6 balanced line outputs of a Presonus Quantum 2626 using short TRS cables(mono connection is OK).
So is there a best/only way to achieve this?
Do I just do one the following:

1/2 signal Shielded

Balanced Output / Unbalanced Input
Sleeve. / Sleeve
Tip. / Tip
Tip / Ring
Ring / Not connected

Or Maybe

Full Signal Unshielded

Balanced Output / Unbalanced Input
Sleeve / Not connected
Tip. / Tip
Tip / Ring
Ring / Sleeve

Or Other

Been trowling the webs & forums & not really getting a clear solution. Greatful for any advice.
