What would be the difference between a box like this and something
like an "inline" balun adapter such as the ones made by Canare or
Neutrik, except for the RCA vs BNC connectors? It's a bit of a pain
when you have to deal with a mix of BNC and XLR audio connectors in
your equipment racks, especially if you have a manual patch panel.
Should you convert all XLR connections to BNC/coax and use a video
style patch panel, or convert the BNC/coax connections to XLR and use
an audio-style patch panel?

I guess this is getting a bit far from telecines...
