One question, why it doesn't have balanced XLR input? But it has balanced headphone output.
Because it's not a balanced amp. The 4-pin XLR jack is just for convenience if you have that type of headphone cable.
It's also arguably sturdier, but yea, this is gonna cause a lot of confusion come the due date haha, I bet tons of unsuspecting buyers who are relatively new to the hobby are going to be wonder what's going on.
I think there's more to the 4 pin. It's definitely not for convenience. I dont think someone of this engineers caliber, would use it because it looked cool. Less noise. Separating ground. More shielding. Tip won't break. Lets see, ground, tip, and ring. Ring, ring? Hello, who's calling? Not for a mic. Maybe some kind of balancing act. Left, right. Tube, ss. Could someone with knowledge please chime in before someone notices what a stuper I'm in?
it is there for convenience, and it's a nicer connector (doesn't short ,sturdier, ect)
What, another $50 so I dont have to use a 3.5? Strange decision.
Single ended only, no balanced out even from 4 pin. Please also know you need a balanced input from a balanced source or DAC for true balanced out anyways.
