    Alright, so I bought a standard, probably crappy hosa dual rca to dual 1/4" cable to go directly from my Vestax PCV-175 to my monitors. It works, but there is humming on and off. I googled my problem and saw that I should probably have balanced cables and mine are not. So, I then tried to find a balanced rca to 1/4" cable, but I all of the ones I see are unbalanced. So what is the best way to do this?

    Yep, RCA connections can't be balanced. Balanced connections require three connection 'pins' or plates - RCA cables only have two.
