Introducing the Khadas Balanced RCA

RCAs made to the original RCA specs will couple firmly. No locking required for domestic use. I have not had an RCA coupling come self-undone in 50+ years.
 
If you want RCAs for balanced, why not just put two on the device, one for +, one for - ? Make your twin RCA to XLR cable and call it done.

I don't think it works out for true balanced in technical, as the hot and cold signals for balanced purpose must be twisted pair to improve the performance.

Two RCA SE Jack on a Hi-Fi device with separate RCA cables for each channel can reduce the electronic rejection and crosstalk :)
 
Idk, half the attraction to balanced interconnects is the sturdy and rugged XLR connectors.

I suppose this is good for devices competing with thickness. But can't imagine the issue is this great to warrant a whole new creation like this?

That is not only balanced but also single-ended, the circuit is not easy.
We know that SE is obtained through balanced.
 
I can't find cables with this connector. If I am to buy a Khadas DAC/AMP I want a balanced RCA to 4.4 adapter to connect it to an amp.

Here you go:
 
It looks like the clear winner in the “balanced connector for tiny boxes” is the old pro 1/4” TRS. In addition to Topping miniDSP is now using it.

I found it but it has an enormous bulky XLR on its end. I am a woman who wants it small such as a 4.4.

yep, that is better, but the best for me is 4.4 pentacon
