I think the stock tube they have included is actually a great match. I would suggest sticking with it.

Because the inputs are RCA Red & Black, is the 4-pin headphone output truly balanced?

No it is not balanced at all. Just convenient for using headphones with 4pin Xlr connector...

When you hear significant distortion or sound degradation. It depends on how long the tube will survive its use.

How would one set this up at a desk to work along with a standalone DAC, to drive both headphones and PC speakers? RCA from PC to DAC, RCA from DAC to amp, line out from amp to PC speakers? Then for the headphones, just use the headphone jack on the amp?

If you wanted to run a set of speakers and headphones, you wouldnt use this for the speakers. I would suggest the following PC usb to DAC 2x RCA splitters from DAC (unless your DAC has both a 3.5 and RCA outputs) If your DAC has both outputs RCA to amp 3.5 to speaker amp (more powerful than headphone amp). Adapters may be necessary here Otherwise, you'd run one set of the split RCAs to the headphone amp, and the other set to the speaker amp
