That's a loaded question on head-fi and I don't want to get into the whole balanced vs single-ended thing, but to my ears, I have always preferred the balanced sound vs the SE. Better separation, bass is tighter with more volume, etc. same diff most systems make going from SE to balanced.
I see you joined head-fi last year. I suggest you go to a meet and listen to all the different setups. SE and balanced. You don't know what your missing till you hear it for the first time but then say goodbye to your wallet.
I think for those who have device with balanced out should making full use of its advantage.
