Reckon I'll need to take them back and get TRS?

Sorry, all this is new to me.

Unbalancing the connectors usually opens up the system for greater noise and potential ground issues.

Good Resource on Balanced connections from Rane.

Thanks again Bosa & Richi,

Just to let you know I believe my current cables are ok. I currently have the xlr to jack cables (TS) going from the DJR into the inputs of the nano patch. The instructions state that the inputs in the nano patch accept XLR, TS or TRS cables.

I have then used my xlr to jack (TRS) adaptors to go from the output in the nano patch into my monitors. It's only the output from the nano patch that require TRS.

Reckon this sounds ok?

Cheers again all

If you take a look at some of the diagrams on the Rane site you will see 3 connectors in a standard balanced cable. Now when you use TS connectors one of the three coloured lines will not be used and the connection between to two devices (DJR 400--(NANO)--Rockit) will now be unbalanced. If you think about one of the coloured lines(RED, BLACK, GREEN), as soon as you introduce a TS then one would be broken. So if you want to maintain the balanced connection then use TRS through the complete chain.

Saying that, doesn't mean TS will not work, it's just best practice to keep balanced lines, balanced througout to avoid any potential issues.

i was meaning to reply back a few days ago. I took your advise and replaced the TS cables for TRS.

The nano patched worked a treat at the weekend
