    From my knowledge it should matter. Though typically if you can you would want to stay away from converting to rca or 3.5 from xlr or 1/4inch jacks, if you do however just keep the cable lengths a little bit shorter. I may not be 100% right but i believe im close

    That would be correct. Now it's just a matter of choosing the right cable.

    In theory afaik it won't matter since the RCA end is unbalanced anyway (thus the XLR/TRS end will be unbalanced regardless of the connector) so just make sure the cable is good
