I've recently bought a Tascam US-1800 and a pair of KRK RP5 Monitors.

Basically what i'm wanting to do with this setup is connect the monitors to the US-1800 interface but I also want to connect my Behringer HA400 to it too for headphones.

What cables do I need for these and where should I connect them? I can't seem to find any Mono TRS cables for the monitors so should I just buy a couple of stereo ones?

Here are some pics:

Also If I want to use more than 8 mics can I attach these (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/320784550183?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2648) to a couple of XLR cables and plug them into the interface? Also where would I plug them in? In the 2 inputs on the front or one of the 4 on the back? or either?

Thanks

Unless I'm having a slow moment, TRS always is stereo because it's two wires and the ground... so yeah, you use stereo TRS as this is effectively a balanced line. Just use main output to go from 1800 > KRK's.

As for the HA400, didn't bother to look but I presume it's a headphone amplifier in which case all you need to do is go from the headphone out of the 1800 to the HA400 and then that will split the signal and amplify it for the various headphones.
Hey, look. Sigs are back.

Ok cool, thanks for the info man .

Ideally I want to go from one/two of the outputs at the back to the HA400 and keep the headphone port at the front for my own monitoring. So if balanced cables are stereo could I use a TRS cable to go from one of the Line Out ouputs to the HA400's input?
