    XLR Cable?

    Hi guys, I need some new XLR cable for my Rokit 5 speakers, I'm not sure what type to go for?

    I notice some say "Balanced" etc, is there actually any difference to XLR cables that state "Balanced" and ones that don't?

    I'm looking at these cables as they are gold-plated, so I'm guessing better sound quality?

    Any info appreciated! Thanks

    Almost all 3 pin XLR to XLR are balanced. It would be hard to find one that isn't. Gold plating has no immediate effect on sound quality, though its resistance to corrosion might have a long term effect if you live near the ocean.
