A balanced cable takes two signals and inverts one.
As the signal is taken along the wire it will pick up interference on both signals.
When it reaches it's destination the signal will then be inverted back.
Because the interferences are not 180 degrees from each other they cancel each other out. Therefore no resistance.

it's hard to explain without a lovely drawing of a sine wave.

So which one is better??


Balanced.
Irrelevant quote from obscure person
Obnoxious statement regarding size of e-ween
Italicized text indicating bandwagoning masquerading as deep thought
ASCII graphic that will take over the world if you put one in your signature
Made up statistic

Balanced is better cause it removes any interference from a wire. Basicly it will have alot less background hum and 'random noise'.

The difference between balanced and unbalanced is largely over-exagerated in the cable lengths and situations commonly found in home studios and teenage jam rooms. The difference in audible noise between your 25ft unbalanced $25 guitar cable, and a 10ft balanced $25 cable, will be extremely faint and in most cases not noticable at all. If you getting balanced cables to get rid of hum creeping into your signal, you need to pay for quality cables, or the difference wont be worth the cost.
