Mainly for thr impedance switch so I check how gear responds under different impedances.
I doubt I will ever sell it.
Yes agreed - I actually thought that was a bit disingenuous on Centrance's part... they always mentioned it had "balanced outputs", and while it's true technically that doesn't necessarily mean it's a balanced amp, 99% of people would interpret it that way, and they never clarified (until someone opened one up and confirmed) that it just included a 4pin XLR output for convenience, but it was technically a SE amp... What made it more confusing was that during the planning process, this was supposed to be a true balanced amp (and was discussed as such), but somewhere down the line they decided not to (forgot the reason why).
Anyways regardless, I still love mine, and the fact that it has a 1/8", 1/4" and 4pin XLR output really makes it a dream for bringing to meets. Also lets me use my MrSpeakers Ether C's with 4pin XLR around the house (I listen in bed from my iPhone pretty frequently).
+3 on this, thats an excellent deal on a great sounding piece.
I doubt I'd ever sell mine, my only annoyance with it was when CEntrance briefly hinted they would offer a factory revision to include DSD capability, then immediately withdrew that idea and said they would only offer DSD playback on "newer devices" which sounded very Apple-esque to me and was a big disappointment since they had already indicated a board revision to enable DSD was possible.
Nobody was asking for that modification for free, there would have been a charge of course, but CEntrance suddenly thought better of it and I guess in the end decided they didn't want to cannibalize sales of their newer Mini-M8, which does offer DSD as standard.
I was turned off by that but I got over it, and I'll likely have the M8 for the long haul, very versatile and high quality.
