        Yes, and you are going to have to go back and rerip all your CDs in Balanced FLAC (BFLAC) format!  If you bought any music from iTunes you will have to go back and buy it again in the new format, iTunes+-   Just kidding, there is no such thing as balanced digital, but digital info could be run on a balanced line, but that is completely unneccessary for your application.   Rob
The Pico Slim has been sold!  Thanks Danny.   I'm going to hold onto the Pico Amp/DAC for the time being, if I decide to sell it I'll put a listing up for that.   Rob  
Black, only used a couple times, it's like-new, PERFECT.  With box, leather carrying case.  Great amp, I need to downsize my amplifier collection.   I also have a Pico USB DAC / Amp but I'm on the fence about getting rid of that....   Rob

Re: iPad USB Audio Class 1 and Update on OSX Class 2 According to the original post it sounds like it does support external DACs... now I'm second guessing trading in the Pico AMP+Dac for the Pico Slim...

I guess that is why iPhones are so popular...? Why so many people in the know use Macs...? Ridiculous... Rob

Scratch here and there and it craps on everything. Even on a perfectly good CD, the rips just aren't accurate... they don't sound like the...

I think the Matrix looks very nice, the form factor is nice, it's a good size and seems well built for the money - and I really dig the VFD. But the...
