The are male according to this video:
He called it female cable, but it's a female port. The xlr cable he showed was male on both end. He even mentioned plugfing in 3 prong.


Look at around 50 second mark, he puts up text saying Female XLR input.

1. I connect into monitors
2. I connect to DAC.

I think i haven't made a mistake o_O
No you need the cable to be male on both ends. You don't see three metal pins sticking out of the back of the active monitor do you?

Yes, the male goes to monitors, that correct, but let's check the DAC. I need female for that :)

Lol I didn't look too closely when I looked it up. I was looking at the front and thought they were output.

Np :D, at the end everything is fine :D

Btw, maybe i should take a look on Tannoy Gold 8?
I do like Tannoy coax drivers but speakers are things you have to listen to before you can decide.

Actually given they cost the same for you, go with Tannoy.

Yeah, true! I did love the sound of Adam T8V, but they are not for my usage completely, and sometimes i wanted a little more bass.

But from your professional vision, which i should try first for my needs? Music, usually from Spotify. TV Shows sometimes and sometimes playing games(CoD Warzone).

I am not a professional sound guy. I love Tannoy sound. I will definitely pick Tannoy Gold 8 over KRK RP8. I didn't suggest them cuz I am in Canada and they cost like one third more than the RP8.

But you are in Europe so the situation gets reversed. Definitely look at European speakers xd


Music from Spotify deserves 20 dollar apeakers :cool:

For me, they will cost exactly the same as KRK, so that's why I'm asking for your suggestion :)

Great! Thank you, i will try them :)

Does the low-frequencies(bass) is not worse than in KRK? :)

From spec Tannoy has more power but KRK goes lower. But unless you look up actual measurements it is all academic. Like I said, your hearing has to be the judge, not mine.

So it will be softer?
Wont go as low but will be louder, but not by a lot. Low frequency require lots of power.


With the Tannoy you can use minijack cables and don't need the Behringer. One stereo minijack cable from computer line out to one speaker, then a mono one between the speakers.

Seems like I forgot to actually send this:

"In your case I would recommend to either buy an adapter cable from mini male jack stereo to double male XLR, or buy the Behringer UMC-202HD and adapter cables from male jack mono to XLR male mono (either separate or as a double cable), or buy the UMC-404HD and two XLR cables. To estimate if going for an audio interface is even worth it I'd need to know your motherboard model, even cheap recent motherboards often have excellent onboard audio.
The ISO-Pad 7 is made for full-range monitors, a single pad is big enough to fit the entire Syrincs subwoofer on it."
