2 x balanced jacks to one stereo minijack Audio Interfaces

Question 2 x balanced jacks to one stereo minijack

Hello!
I have an Audient ID14 audio interface, with two balanced TRS jack outputs (left + right).

What would be the best/easiest way to connect those to a single stereo minijack on a speaker device with an AUX input?

Can I do this by simply rewiring, or do I need some converter or DI box for it?

I want to prevent any damage to the equipment.

Thanks

2xTS to stereo miniplug cable. You can plug an unbalanced TS cable into a balanced TRS output with impunity on any halfway modern equipment.

Ah yes, thanks. Will look into it.

But I just realized, I could also just use the headphones output with one simple 6.3mm to 3.5mm jack cable.. ?
It's for an active speaker with AUX input for any source (including phones via headphones output), so I guess it could be fine to use for this too

Yup, it sounds like that ought to work as well.

you need a stereo break-out cable with two TS at the interface end. Like Hosa CMP-150 or Monoprice 601045



Using the headphone output is generally not regarded as equal quality to the proper, main outputs.
And even if it is equivalent quality, it unnecessarily blocks use of headphones which may be convenient.
