    Yamaha DZR15 - jack input?

    Hi,

    so I have two DZR15s which feature a combined XLR/Jack inputs.

    I was told by Yamaha support that XLR input is balanced, and Jack input is unbalanced stereo. Sounded strange but that's what they said.

    Thing is, if I connect a 6.3" stereo cable to jack input, I get no sound, as if it was balanced and it would just cancel it out.

    Or is it mono?

    Does anyone have a clue?

    Provided this is not possbile, does anyone know of any smalles footprint device which could convert from stereo to combined mono?

    Thanks.

    The inputs should be XLR and 1/4" TRS, both balanced, both not stereo. You can't have a stereo input to a speaker that is mono. In most cases if you plug a mono 1/4" into a TRS balanced input the circuit operates as unbalanced.

    Simply buy a cable to split the 1/8 trs to dual 1/4 TS and plug both into the speaker, it will mix/sum the signals to mono.

    ^^^ this. The person who told you the jack is stereo was just confused. Use both inputs to mix stereo to mono.
