Balance and unbalanced active monitors


I plan on buying Balance but can not afford to get new monitors at the same time so for the time being I plan on hooking it to what I have now: poor man's Creative M80 sort-of-monitors with unbalanced RCA inputs. The question: is it okay to "unbalance" the Balance's outputs by using mono TRS (well, that'd be TS, I guess) to RCA cables? I'm aware that by doing it, I'd be essentially grounding the "-" (negative) half of the signal at Balance's output stage. Is it okay or I'm risking of borking the (un)Balance's output here and I should get the proper pair of (balanced) monitors first instead? I don't have an access to Balance operation manual - does it say anything about that?

Best regards,
