TS is always safer to use unless you arel 100% sure that both the source and destination are truly balanced TRS.

That "75 ohm" TS cable seems like pure ******y. Any interconnection that requires a standard impedance will NOT be using TS connectors. If I couldn't make my own cables (which I recommend and encourage), I would buy something sensible like...

Based on what you are suggesting they do not fit the bill?

When you say "large risk of failure" what do you mean exactly?

Would a regular guitar cable work for this connection? (I have plenty of those)
