Volta - Cable questions TS/TRS?

I'm wondering if someone can shed some light on the following:

Motu says that using Volta, you should use TRS to TS (floated ring) from your interface to your synth, otherwise using TS to TS can burn out your interface outputs.

Can someone explain this to me? I can't understand how using a unbalanced cable from your Motu interface to your analog modular could have any affect on the Motu. Isn't it just audio going in one direction at the end of the day?

I don't want to run out and buy a bunch of expensive balanced cables just to run out to my analogs as cv and have the TS cables lying around.
