Your goal at music video and skill play game ?

Threads [ Previous | Next ]

I got a pair of 8020 genelecs. I made a unbalanced cable mini-jack to XLR (L-R). I dont know if this the best way to connect.

So my doubts:

1. What the best way to connect to sound card of PC. Unbalanced, Balanced cable?

2. Does it worth have some control system between PC (Sound Card output) ---> ?? ---> Genelecs ? If yes with kind?

3. My actual sound card is built-in motherboard. Any advised sound card?? 
My budget is very low! 100 USD at max. 
My goal is for general use, music, video and game playing.

if you come from unbalanced sound card, it doesn't matter if you use balanced or unbalaced cable to connect the speaker.

usually you would insert a volume knob between source and speaker e.g. palmer monicon.


if you want a soundcard anyway, take one with a volume knob built in.

focusrite scarlet is very common. 100$ upwards, depending on number of in outputs.
