I realise Balanced connections are much better than Unbalanced - but why is it that lots of hardware doesn't support balanced cables?
For example, the stereo ins on my mixer are balanced, but my synth and drum machine aren't.
The Main outs on my mxier are unbalanced, but my monitors are.
I don't get it - why don't they make everything balanced? There's no advantage whatsoever to me using balanced cables in the above situations right?
