Z9000 AP professional audio quality question

dear genelec users,

i am a convinced 8030 B user together with a high quality firewire soundcard that does not have balanced outputs in my homestudio... i am on the lookout for a passive (under 100 euro) volume knob solution such as the Z9000 AP from genelec, but wonder if it is "professional enough in terms of the audio quality", well i am a huge genelec fan and do believe in their quality, but the other option i am looking into is the SM Pro Audio Nano Patch Plus http://www.thomann.de/de/sm_pro_audio_nano_patch.htm does any of you have any experience and can tell me which one delivers the better audio quality? as i mentioned already the fact that the Z9000 AP is NOT balanced is not a big deal in my case, even at least 6.3 TRS would be nice, thou ;)

thanks a lot!

ANYBODY?

any thoughts or experiences if the Z9000 AP is up to par with the 8030 A ??? and a high quality firewire soundcard that doesn't have balanced outs, just RCA plugs...

thanks!

Hi SubFunk,
it works when you have the right adapters. You have to check it by yourself if it is quality wise exaptable for you.
