Can a balanced cable be terminated with rca's


Can a bulk wire such as mogami that is terminated with balanced ends be reterminated with rca's ?

Yes, I've had this done many times. I usually have a cable builder do the job for me. But if your handy and have a solder iron, DIY.
But doesn't this defeat the purpose of "balanced"?
Muzikat,

Yes it does, but if he already has them and likes them, he might as well do it. I wonder if an XLR to RCA adapter might be an easier way to go if it didn't hurt the sonics, that way he could easily go back to balanced if the need arises.

All adaptors have an affect on the sound. Why complicate things with adaptors? Keeping it simple usually results in better sound.
I am looking at mogami wiring cut to foot . The stuff is sold with xlr in the stores . They do not state if they are dual purpose . rca or xlr . basically looking for the technical aspect . I only have unbalanced equipment , but would like to hear mogami . Hence the need to reterminate .
Yes, as Earndog replied, balanced cables can be run with RCA connectors.
You can order Mogami 2534 cable, which is perhaps their most widely used model in balanced XLR applications, terminated with RCA connectors and in various lengths and colors, from Markertek.

I have done that, with excellent results in my system.

Thanks as usual to Al for the links. Now to Mogami speaker wire . The 3104 is 4 conductor . Can i use that for biwiring ? Is it superior to the 2 conductor 3103 ?

I realize how old this thread is BUT.....my Yamaha CD player offers XLR outs but my Integrated offers only RCA inputs. Might there be a sonic improvement to using my XLR Cardius adapters to go RCA in? Or does this screw the signal up? I know....try it but scared of damaging something.
