how is it not? headphone output impedance is 300ohms where are you getting 12 from?

Can you use both the RCA/balanced outs? Can you switch between them with a button or something?

12% off.. let's try 30-50% next time, and you might actually sell a few.

This unit can be bought in the US for $380 with "free" shipping. Not a very good deal...

So if the XLR Input is for a microphone would I be able to connect my computer(USB), ps4(TOSLINK,OPTICAL), microphone(XLR) as inputs and my Swan speakers and headphones as output and then swap between all those connected devices?

The XLR input is only for AES/EBU digital input. This unit does not have a microphone preamp or analog to digital converter.

Oh ok, I can just get a USB microphone in that case.

OK, so I am by no means an audiophile, but I have a pair of M-Audio BX5a's on my desk connected (using a mini-stereo to unbalanced TRS connection) to my MacBook pro. I have been looking around for some time for a DAC that can input USB or optical (since these are the outputs the MBP offers) and output balanced XLR to the BX5a's. This seems to punch that ticket.
My question though is what is the amplifier for? Is it strictly for the headphone jack, or is it somehow amplifying the line-out (which seems like a contradiction to me - again, not an audiophile)? If the latter, what happens when I send an amplified XLR line out to the pair of self-powered monitors? Any clarification you all can provide is greatly appreciated.

The amplifier is strictly for the headphone output.

Any time you apply gain to a signal it's amplification. The signal from the DAC chip itself would not be powerful enough, unless it has built-in opamps (some do).
