RCA vs JACK quality
 
http://aspiremusic.com/images/presonus_audiobox.jpg

Hey i was wondering ,what will give me the best sound quality? a dual 6.35 plugged into RCA with Y female 3.5 jack or a simple 6.35 to 3.5?

Thanks!

Nobody really explains that on the internet, they don't really know,btw it's for headphones, not speakers.I know the headphones plug is supposed to be the single jack but i wanna make sure it's better than RCA.

There is no difference. Both are analog and both are stereo.

Whatever is cheapest.

Personally, I'd use the jack as opposed to the RCA as I believe it will offer a better connection over time. RCA is fine for a static connection, but a headphone cable is going to move around and a jack is better designed to both stay in place, as well as not get misformed over time.

Stick with the jack, it's easier and I agree with what sswilson is saying. Good choice on the PreSonus, they make great products.

Ok thanks :) yeah i got this card because i also produce music,as an amateur :) And anyway the sound card inside this is much better than a motherboard chip :D

OK,so i tried both,and actually ,there is more bass with RCA,but meds and high are the same,just seems a bit more muddy with RCA,gonna use jack...

Thanks for the update and it's not too surprising what you've discovered. I took Audio Recording and Engineering a few years back and to make a long story short rented out the Audiobox 1818VSL for a week and was really impressed. Especially considering the price.
