Why balanced hp output and no balanced analog input option? Kind of defeats the purpose a bit... in my mind, atleast.
The primary function of a balanced input is to eliminate noise that is picked up on the way to the amp. Since the RS 08 is typically used with a DAC that sits only a foot away, there's no need for a balanced input.
On the other hand, if you really believe in balanced design, then you need an amp that's balanced from input to output. There are very few of those.
