Default Does an unbalanced input to Mbox Pro (3rd gen) become balanced output?

If I plug in a cd player or such to the unbalanced RCA inputs of an Mbox Pro 3rd gen, do the outputs of the Mbox from the TRS output using a TRS cable become balanced to say a Yamaha HS50M that accepts TRS balanced input? What about an unbalanced TS input? Does that signal become a balanced output to the studio monitors? So does the Mbox Pro perform the duties of a DI box where the unbalanced signal gets converted to a balanced signal?

The short answer is Yes....
