RCA vs XLR

Hi, is there any real drawback to using my DJ400's RCA master outs instead
of the XLR's? (One of my master XLR channels is not outputting any sound).
And until i have time to crack this mixer open and investigate I am wondering if using a RCA splitter (one sig to amp, one to recording device) is an OK way to go.

Using a Y splitter as proposed will work just fine. Good luck with tracing your faulty XLR output.

Not unless it's a really long run or around a bunch of lights.

What Reticuli said, also on most occasions the signal will actually be "cleaner" on the unbalanced RCA output as it's not going through the active balancing IC's and what have you.

hmmmm. the long run is a question. I'll be using a RCA to XLR patch cord from the DJRs master out. the sound guy takes that to the mixing board (60-80 foot run).

Anything over around 10 meters or so should be Balanced, the most common issue with really long unbalanced leads is the capacitance will act as a low pass filter with your highs being attenuated to whatever degree. Best bet get you mixer fixed.
