Lo Here is Craig's explanation of the differences between the Equilibrato SE and the Balancing Act. "The Equilibrato SE has only front panel headphone outputs, the BA has balanced line outputs, and headphone line switching. The BA also adds a 4 pin XLR for both dual,...

The Equilibrato is different, the Zana Deux is an OTL amp and the ZDT has transformer output which will also drive speakers. I think from a design standpoint, it is closer to the Balancing Act than the ZDT. According to Craig, the Equilibrato sounds better than the ZDT,...

By what process is it being outputted to balanced? (Phase splitter? Some fancy...

Here are some of my impressions of the amp so far. I met David (909) at Craig's house on Saturday to pick up my Equilibrato and all I can say is that I am extremely pleased with this amp. David was kind enough to bring over his L3000s, a really great sounding cartridge and phono preamp. We did quite a bit of listening to both CD and vinyl on Craigs Sony PSX70 turntable. The Equilibrato with the PX4 sounds great, it is very musical. Listening to some vintage vinyl really...
