 Can't say I've noticed any difference - the monitors themselves have some gain adjustment controls but it's only something tiny like +/- 6db - I'm not too paranoid about it!
Looks like the Dell 21:9 monitor - there's a few of those available now. Those cinema-esque aspect ratio feels.
 I haven't tried the unbalanced - I have Event Opals connected via XLR to the balanced outputs as I'm just used to using that connection for active monitors (should be better in theory anyway). Actually I have a couple of those XLR attenuators connected between the NAD and the cables because without them I have to cut major dbs on the NAD before the Opals give me a relatively low listening volume for times when I can't blare them out, and even as a very fancy digital...
Nice. Presume the built in storage will only be a poverty 8GB like the 50? I have a 64GB microSD card in any case, but more storage is always welcome.
DX100 owner - might be tempted if it's the same performance for IEMs in a smaller package.
 I lucked out and managed to get a superb deal on them 2nd hand - an audiophile dude on a hi-fi forum was letting them go as although he loved them, he literally couldn't deal with the lack of box-swapping involved in a pro-audio type chain; he just HAD to be able to change amps, cables and experiment, so let them go. Still under warranty for another year, but they seem perfect bar the slight tweeter hiss you can hear up close, but I knew about that before I got them - in...
My cat damaged my cable (me = stupid). They replaced it with a newer design - some silver jobbie. Looks nice.  
    Coming together slowly. Tilted the Opals down a bit since this pic. Aim is to eventually have an iMac rather than a Mini + monitor, although ideally I'll probably wait until they do Retina/4K iMacs... might grab a 27" 1440p screen in the meantime though and update to a newer Mini LOL. Also need to sort out cabling, room treatment, lighting and a load of other stuff... least I have the DAC and speakers I want now, although the Opals are ultra efficient or something...
A no-brainer suggestion would be the IsoAcoustic range - check their site for a compatibility chart to match the right size stand with the speaker, although I'd imagine it'd be the middle sized ones (the L8R-155's).
Mine has been hassle-free, bar the odd quirk like playing albums out of order despite my best tagging efforts (which reminds me - I need to fix a couple of ones I've noticed mistakes on, doh!). The only thing I don't like about the DX100 is how thick it is, other than that, very happy.
