I recently got my hands on some KRK rokit6s and they quite nice. I'm currently using my xonar dx and a 3.5mm to rca cable to power them. I suppose I have two questions:
1. If you have no noise using unbalanced connections, is there truly a benefit to going to balanced?
2. Currently my monitors are set at the lowest gain setting and in truth, that can get loud enough to suit my purposes. However, would increasing the gain (and in turn decreasing the volume at my computer) yield a higher quality sound?
