In your situation, I'd get a good mixer, like this one or this one, and out of those mics, I'd skip all of them and get a good dynamic mic instead. I use the AKG D5 and love it. I used the audio technica ATR2100, shure SM57 and SM58 as well, and liked the D5 over all of them.

Edit; Actually, reading your post again, a good usb audio interface will do you well too, though you won't have as many adjustments as a mixer will give you.

Most portable amps are only designed to run headphones & running them on high for long periods will severely shorten it's life.

To be honest for what you would pay for what you are asking for, you would be better off getting a portable mixer and maybe an amp (if needed), it would cover everything you need and it is designed for the workload you would be putting on it.

You could get something like the Yamaha MG06 6-Input Compact Stereo Mixer, add in a 2 x 6.5mm male to 3.5mm cable male, 2 x 6.5mm to 2 x RCA cable, 2 x XLR female to 2 x XLR male cable, 2 x XLR female to 2 x XLR female cable, a 3.5mm male to 3.5mm female cable, and a power strip and you should be covered for most situations.

Then if you still find you need an AMP (though the mixer will put out a pretty strong signal) you could get something like the iBoost 800 Stereo Line Level Audio Amplifier Booster Amp and a few appropriate cables.

You can find these brands all over the world at your local musician / pro audio store or online retailer of your choice in your country.

These are the cheaper of the models - the pricier ones have more mic preamps and input channels along with sliding faders instead of rotary pots for gain.

costly.

will this work

Yeah, that's the wrong cable. You have a stereo 3.5mm (TRS / Tip Ring Sleeve) to XLR. - Not going to work!

The XLR input on any "pro" speaker is meant for balanced mono cables (like a microphone cable), its not stereo.

The 3 wires inside a balanced XLR connector are for a (mono) "Hot, Cold and Earth" signal, not stereo "Left, Right and Ground" signal as in a consumer headphone jack. Totally different animal. You're shorting out the signal by using that adapter.

----------------

First off - do you have one or two EONs?


If you only have one mono speaker, you could use a 3.5mm mono to 2 conductor 1/4" TS (Tip Sleeve) plug

I need to convert a signal going to powered studio monitors from unbalanced signal (RCA) to a balanced (XLR) AND get a volume control for the monitors.


I can either get a separate signal converter and passive volume knob separately or get a small cheap mixer like this one with RCA aux inputs and XLR outputs which will give me volume control and signal conversion in one unit. The latter is slightly cheaper and gives me some extra inputs to play with.

But is the RCA aux to XLR outputs on the mixer likely to be a pretty passive signal path on an inexpensive mixer or might it introduce some noise and/or color?

I don't have the most hi-fi system (KRK 6" with a 10" sub) , but I do prefer to have the least adulterated signal getting to the monitors.

Looks like your post got pulled by mods. I can continue to advise, but heres my reply to your last msg fwiw:

>Can I bypass a mixer and go direct to amps?

Kinda. You can plug direct into your "main" amplifier (as if it were Left-Right), but you may experience pops and more noises if you connect/disconnect anything while the amps are on, since you cant mute. You also remove any EQ or fader control when you remove the mixer, so you would be dependent on the playback device controls.

From there you can use the "through" outputs on the back of said amp, to jump signal to the next amp and so on.
This is "daisy changing" the signal that feeds the amps, but is obviously dependent on the amp connections. Youll probably need a handful of adapters as well.

Jumping speakers together can be tricky, because they need to have similar power and resistance requirements. Unless you understand OHM loads, cable gauges, and peak vs RMS wattages, I wouldn't recommend "daisy chaining" speakers. That's one of the most common mistakes that can cause bad sound or damage if done incorrectly. This stuff is why sound engineering is a job that takes years to master.

Get something like the Yamaha MG06 or this Behringer or this Pyle.

Sound/build quality are pretty much the same under about $300. Which is another way to say on the cheap side.
Even if you bought a $12,000 console, its all for not if your PA isnt set up correctly.

Purchasing a cheap submixer would leave over $100 left in your budget. Thats plenty to pay someone to show you how to set it up, and youll probably have beer money left over.

This is the one I have, it's $100. Yamaha MG06 6-Input Compact Stereo Mixer https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00I2J4WJG/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_BTuwxb85CKZTJ

There are cheaper options out there I believe. I use this just so I can have a nice headphone mix - I can push my mic up or down vs the game volume in my ears. It's nice to have control.
