Most Japanese sources have single ended output stages so the XLR in an afterthought. How this is handled varies from manufacturer to manufacturer as some use transformers (vintage SOTA Sony gear) or some good phase splitting circuits but all Esoteric's I've seen are scraping the bottom of the barrel with truly nasty opamp based phase splitters. Better let the Stax amps take care of that.
