    Hey guys!

    I always used headphones to listen to my stuff and to mix aswell (Only home/demo recording/mixing).
    Now i saw a set of Tascam VL-A4 monitors on my local craigslist for 50$ including shipping. Of course i had to buy them immediately^^

    Now my question is: Which cables do i need to use to connect the outputs from my Interface (M-Audio 1814 Firewire) to my monitors?
    Do i need 1/4 inch Stereo Jack cables or Mono Jack cables (Instument cables)?

    Sorry if this is a stupid question xD

    1/4 inch stereo/balanced, or what you want to call them or 1/4 inch to XLR would be my choice.

    TRS (e.g., stereo 1/4") to male XLR.
