any difference in quality? :)
I also think the balance input/output will give u benefit of getting a fuller sound. Well, not by much, but if u listen carefully, as what *kothganesh* said, the difference is noticeable (by a fuller sound). However, to me, the difference is MORE noticeable on the output rather than the input. That said, switching from SE input to balance input, will not be the same as much as improved you are getting by switching from SE output to Balance output.
Other "small-minus" hint if you are using CLAS db with RSA Intruder:
From my experience, i prefer to use SE input between the CLAS db and the Intruder. It's not because being better, but because another reason. If i want it stacked together between Ipod/CLASdb/Intruder, using balance connection all way through, the only possible option i can do, is that i flip the Intruder the other way around to be able to stick and connect it with my CLAS db using the balance ports (am i right? - otherwise you can not get the right direction between the ports). Now, by doing this, i have no other way but placing my ipod on top of the bottom side of the intruder --> and this will give you a soft noticeable sizzling noise during music transition of the ipod, which i hate it much. I did try pull out Intruder from bundle, and placing my ipod on the top part of the Intruder and no such issues i can hear, and that is why i prefer to use SE input between the CLAS db and Intruder, because with SE input, I don't need to flip the Intruder in such position and i can place my ipod on the top part of Intruder.
Just to be more clear, here is the pictures:
The picture shows i place the ipod on top of the bottom side of Intruder --- and this is the only way i can do if i want stacked them together using balance input. By sticking the back of the ipod to the bottom part of the intruder will give you a soft sizzling noise during music transition.
This picture shows when i used SE input, now i can place my ipod on the top part of the Intruder --- free of sizzling problem !!
