This is very tempting. I have the Liquid Gold and absolutely love it. Wish it had a balanced output though. Then again, for the price this could be a great deal.

I for one will be happy with single ended. There's no advantage of having a balanced output on a single ended amp, and making the design fully balanced would push up the price significantly.

If i had that, i'd move on. You have the best one can hope for. I'd look at the glass if i were you, you've already eaten fancy, now you can't go back. ;-)

With the LAu, I believe that the balanced output does sound better. I can't do true A/B testing, as the SE and balanced cables I have for the Utopias are different. (For SE I use the stock cable. For balanced I use Kimber). It may be that the cables contribute to the difference, or perhaps the circuit design of the balanced output makes a difference.
