In the past, I have hooked up the sound system and I have heard a slight hissing sound coming from the PA speakers. After speaking with a Sound Engineer and Guitar Center’s Techs, I was advised to use XLR cables for balanced sound.
Now there are multiple was to hookup DJ equipment, but I prefer to use XLR cables over RCA cables,1/4″ jacks or the other options.
Since I have switched from the 1/4″ inputs to XLR cables, the hissing sound is gone and the sound quality has tremendously improved. Above I shared a picture that covers the technical aspect of balanced inputs. Also, I have found a lot of information on the Balanced Audio web page.
