Listening to electrostatic STAX for the first time... Dad's friend brought them in one day. The sound clarity blew me away.

Quick question about 3.5MM
Hello, I bought a balanced dac by mistake and an unbalanced amp, I have no intention of using balanced audio. I am not trying to return the dac but I am concerned with quality, the unbalanced dac has a rca hookup whereas the balanced dac has xlr with only 3.5MM for unbal backup. Should I return the dac and get a unbalanced one to do rca to rca or is 3.5mm to RCA fine for quality (this is a budget setup).

Headphone DAC-AMP options
I've currently got a PS Audio Sprout Amp and Cetrance DAC/Amp, both used for headphone duties. I'm not sure I'm satisfied with either. The Sprout compared to the Cetrance is flat and boring. The Cetrance has a bit more bottom end that I do notice. I'm leaning towards a new headphone amp/DAC with a similar sound profile. I use either a Drop AKG K7XX, Grado SR60 or an awaiting IEM from drop(moondrop Kxxx)... I'd like to keep it under $250 or so, even better under $200... I really like the form factor of the Schiit brand units (hel or fulla) with the volume knob on top. That form factor really appeals to me. What else is out there, within my budget? The volume knob is not a deal breaker at all. But punchier bass, possibly an EQ, would be nice. Otherwise the Cetrance is preferred, but just an eye sore. If could ditch both the Sprout and Cetrance, I'm open to spending more for a complete DAC/AMP setup like the NAD 3020 or similar. I'm also using some cetrance masterclass 2504 speakers...

Wrong Shipping Address (Not my fault)
Hi, Im a little frustrated, my item is going to the wrong address and it seems like i cannot change it. i had provided the correct shipping address on the account and when i made the purchase. This correct address was confirmed to me in the receipt i had received from drop. I have a downloaded pdf and email to prove this. However i can see on DHL tracking that it has listed an incorrect address, it has reached my country and now a new carrier Yodel will be taking over. I have contacted DHL (bot) and they have told me i need to contact the supplier (DROP) to get the address changed. Ive also tried contacting Yodel (my package goes to Yodel after i pay customs ). Yodel has told me that they cannot change the address it is going to unless a failed attempt has been made at the address or they can put the item into their network and i can re-order from the supplier ( ive no idea how this works) Obviously i want my item and i don't want it going to the incorrect address when this...

Drop shipping slow because of covid.
I payed 45 dollars for one day shipping on the 16th and my package is set to be delivered on the 21st, I have read other forum posts recently of people saying they are not receiving items or response from drop. I got a refund for the shipping, and 10 dollar credit (thank you drop) I would just choose the free shipping for now even if you need a package ASAP.

and this country remains the global beacon of freedom and hope. No matter what, no matter how things look, we're still the best hope for democracy and human rights, and we're getting better, as a nation. We have a long way still to go, but I have faith the USA will eventually reach true equality among all of our people. I for one thank the Lord every day that I am able to live here. [image]

Something wrong with my setup?
So I just got the HD6xx and the Schiit Heresy and Modi stack. I put in my RCA cables from the Modi to the Heresy and then plugged in the usb from the Modi to my pc. I plugged the headphones in and everything sounds great. However, there is this static and some pops in the left driver of my headphones when I'm using it. I don't want to jump to conclusions and think I have a faulty unit so I'm wondering if something is wrong with how I set everything up. Thank you.
