The 10SE is a stellar balanced unit. I'm not sure where the other person commenting on it heard it, but it seems like they didn't give it a good listen. I owned that unit. The SE is absolutely amazing. Top notch. Balanced is also fantastic. A really good sounding amplifier. The DAC in it is also tops. The sound signature on the 10SE is incredibly spacious, transparent and neutral.
Good to hear, I should receive the SE tomorrow, and I have a balanced cable coming from Charleston that should get here next week.
The only thing I'm worried about at this point is I need to find room on my desk. The SE is a behemoth compared to the HP-A3!
