Speaker Amplifier with XLR inputs?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I am new to speaker amplification and whatnot. I just bought a pair of Yamaha HS5s with XLR cables and am now looking for a decent, affordable amplifier that will have the proper inputs for them.

Also, as I've said I'm pretty uninformed in this area of audio equipment so any advice/knowledge you'd like to share would be welcomed!

Yamaha HS5 already have built in amplifiers. You don't need a separate speaker amplifier.

Thanks, I didn't think too much about that when I first looked into this. 

 

I have since done my own research, I suppose going with TRS phone jacks + an audio interface is my best option.

Or get a couple of XLR to RCA adapters. I've never bought any, but I believe something like this.

Matching impedance and phase irregularities always make me cringe, so I would stay away from balanced -> unbalanced conversion unless it is done by a fully differential circuit. I'm of the mind that an inexpensive interface to "true" balanced would be best.

Yep, purchased a set of Hs50Ms with a bundled interface in the end.
