Hmm. A sweeping list of generalizations to sway people away from balanced connections - only mentioning the noise rejection for long runs - makes me think that you have some kind of agenda. The reality is, few people will invest in "good singled-ended" DACs and amps, which are few and far between and generally more expensive than "mediocre balanced", which will always sound better than 'poor or mediocre singled-ended' connections, the audio gear standard. Fully-differential balanced circuitry/connections provide superior channel separation, lower crosstalk, and more power than the vast majority of affordable "good singled-ended" gear. And even gear with balanced outputs than isn't fully-balanced will usually provide around double the power, an important benefit for planar magnetic headphones. And let's not forget to note that "good" balanced will always sound better than "good singled-ended".

Does this work with Playstation 4 or Nintendo Switch via the USB port? Also, what kind of inputs would plug into the coaxial input?

The description for the pro is identical to the 2020 model that came out in the summer except the pro describes having a two-stage power supply for lower noise floor.

I have the portable B1, & the X7s, fiio amps, a Fiio X3, 5, & 7, AUNE is the best I've ever had, whether 2.5mm or 3.5 the output is clear dynamic & real life, Arcam makes great dacs also! I'd buy this.

Why are the RCA in and out, right and left are positioned like that? It should not be correct.

Ohh no.. I'm sorry I thought you were talking about the upside down text. I did not realize they were backwards as well. If you look at the pictures of the 2020 model it's not like this. I'm sure this picture of the pro is completely digital and someone didn't realize that a mistake flipping that text

Haha, okay, that makes sense. I had to look at it for a solid minute to confirm I was seeing what I was seeing and not having a stroke, so you'd be forgiven to have not seen it the first time.

Anyone in the audiophile community have an easy-to-understand 'telltale' way to discern when a product is a headphone amp vs a speaker amp? *Disclaimer* I know that its all electric signals and technically a pair of headphones is just a miniature pair of speakers... but realistically I wish they would label the intended use.

Speaker amps most often have binding posts or clips for attaching speaker wire. Headphone amps most often have RCA connectors for input/output. The power/load numbers will be a great indications as well. A power output over 20W would generally indicate it is meant for driving speakers. A load impedance under 16 ohms is generally a speaker also. Headphones generally require <1W and have impedances >16ohms.

Another way to tell is by checking whether you’re on drop. Drop doesn’t do speaker amps, unfortunately.
