In order to be more precise with this application, I will explain you the exact set up im aiming for.
I have an old dj mixer, the NUMARK DM1050, picking up dust for the past 1 year, and I recently decided to do some mixing on it, for practice. I have Scarlett Focusrite 2i4 (studio audio interface), a laptop, this NUMARK DM1050 mixer, and a pair of STUDIO active monitors - the JBL LSR 305. (if someone really needs pictures of ins and outs of the equipment, I can provide)
Here goes my thought for setup:
The laptop is running a dj softvare, 2i4 is connected to the laptop via USB cable, and a numark mixer is connected the 2i4 via RCA cables, where the channel one from the mixer with dual RCA goes to the 1/2 of the 2i4. Same for the second channel and 3/4 on the 2i4. Here is my problem:
I am not sure (since If I understood correctly, to get the output from this setup, I need to connect speakers to the mixer) If I can connect the RCA main out (L and R) from the mixer, to these JBL LSR 305 active studio monitors. The JBL's have balanced TRS input (which I use normally with balanced TRS out on the 2i4 when I do music production), but they don't have the unbalanced RCA. Is it possible to run RCA to TS cable from this mixer to these monitors? Will it do any damage? I really don't want to damage something up this is the only set up I have atm and the first time I do this kind of connection. Will it mess the ground? Are the cables that need to be run mono or stereo? What should I do?...
Sorry for the rather long post, I just want to get this right, and if it can't work, I want to be sure of that so that i know whether i should buy some up to date dj equipment. I would rather to that then damage my JBL LSR 305 studio monitors.
