    Default Mixer Out's - Cables - Question

    Hey Guys,

    I am very confused with all different cable names and outs on mixers.

    I am selling my S4 and replacing it with a K2 to run with an external Mixer however this only has RCA outs.

    I am used to using 1/4jack to XLR cables for my S4 for when I play at my local bar.

    Is there an adapter that would be suitable for my RCA outs to fit these cables 1/4 Jack? Or should I just buy some RCA - XLR cables for my main out?

    My Monitor and Amp are RCA Friendly.

    Thanks,

    Xian

    Maybe a pair of these adapters with a standard RCA cable?

    Pick what you need. Seems like xlr isn't an option.

    Your mixer outputs Rca
    Rca-Rca Rca-Jack ... Rca-Xlr in case? (if you ever have to play through a DI box)

    If your amp is RCA friendly, then just go RCA to RCA
