Help please, SDAC or SDAC Balanced for SP200? Or maybe SMSL Sanskrit MKII? And why. Thanks.
My thoughts (not super knowledgeable) : The difference between balanced and not balanced can be measured in some situations, but for many users setups it wont' really be measurable. Oddly many find balanced sounds better regardless of measurements.
Thus to be safe that you have the best setup you need balanced... If you know you're in a electronically noisy area, get balanced. If you want to use really long cables between your dac and amp, get balanced. If you want to save some money and believe in measurements, don't get balanced.
Thank you very much for your opinion, man.
