I think you are confusing the AES (digital) transformers made by 
Canare and Neutrik with the type made by Jensen.  They are designed 
to match AES (digital) XLR lines to AES/BNC connections.  The AES/XLR
specification is for 110 ohm and the AES/BNC is 75 ohm.  This type
of transformer was never intended to pass analog audio and would not 
be appropriate for connecting analog balanced audio to unbalanced RCA
