Which means, ironically, no difference. biggrin.gif

You're probably still hung over from all the Canuckistan Day festivities over the weekend. Which would also explain why I keep seeing double posts from you. tongue.gif

 If you were able to measure both sides of this balanced amp to ground, and drove it with a single ended input

and had the correct equipment you would be able to see a very slight change in amplitide of both sides.

Just like all the stax amps. Balanced input from a balanced source is always preferable.

Will be driving this with a Bifrost,  will there be much of a difference between that and a balanced DAC,  the Gungnir for example,  not sure my wallet can take it :-)

OK then, Mr. Stoddard, when I get my Mjolnir all bright and undinged, for best results should I feed it from my Bifrost's RCAs or my Cullen-modded PS Audio DL III's balanced outputs?

 

(Bet I know what your answer will be...)  biggrin.gif

I pre-ordered the Mjolnir. Asking for a black chassis.. I figured the chassis was a long shot but is worth the try, all my other gear is black so i would really like this amp to match...
