Thank you so much for the info. I was was under the assumption that I need to balance out from the dac in order to have a balance output to the headphone

There is an internal conversion from either to the other. This amp is amazing

789 permits to drive HP with BAL or UNBAL regardless of whether you use RCA or XLR-3 source. All 789 outputs are driven at same time, regardless of source.

@AndrewMason If all things being equal, is having balance input to the 789 to a balance input to headphone the best combination?

What's your headphone?

I’m using Massdrop M6XX

Bal in is best if your DAC permits, regardless of headphone. For 6xx you might like bal out for the extra voltage swing. Just be careful not to damage your hearing.
