I've used a Purist Audio Design female XLR to male RCA adaptor to use a balanced cable between various XLR outputs and the RCA-only inputs of my preamp, and it sounded great. Can't tell if there was any loss, because the only way I had previously used the balanced cable without the adaptor was with a different preamp. The Purist adaptors are supposed to be the best, and are also pricey, and they take a long time to make them to order. BAT also makes adaptors, but I believe only female XLR to female RCA. Those are supposed to be good also.
