One of the most clean and well done internals I've seen. Far better than SingleP*WER

Seems to have a diverse opinion on this tube. Some people like it very much and others don't..

It's an expensive tube to just try out though..

By the way, why is not pin 1 connected in 3-pin XLR outputs?

Really unbelievable!

A "fully balanced" amp with a single ended outup stage directly connected to the XLR connectors. Very good and clean amplification design with a very odd output stage solution. What a shame, I'm sorry for the people that bought this amp looking forward to have the best of their balanced-cable refurbished headphones and finally they realize that they wasted their money.

My deepest sympathies.

You're joking, right?  The amp output is indeed balanced, when using a balanced input. 

 

The reason only 2 pins are used on each 3-pin XLR is that each channel (aka driver) of a headphone only uses two wires.  Perhaps you should read up on how balanced/bridged headphones work, before bashing something that you clearly know nothing about?

I guess everyone has a "foot in a mouth" moment in their life. This is yours. Treat it carefully and with respect :)

As above poster mentioned, you are looking at the left and right XLR outputs for the balanced headphones.
