RE: XLR to RCA price

Depending on the equipment you're using them with, they may "work" but not work properly.

I have a preamp that outputs via (single-ended) RCA, and a power amp that has (balanced) XLR input. RCA-to-XLR adapters result in sound, but I've lost 6dB worth of power in the process. My balanced amp does not make full power when using a converted single-end input. So far, this hasn't been a problem--I get adequate speaker volume and dynamics even losing 6dB.
