Well aware of the inputs/outputs. What is not clear nor specified by SPL, is if the signal remains split within the Phonitor 2 -- unlikely due to all of its processing options, though I could be wrong since I have not seen their circuit. As an example, the Mjolnir is unusual in that it remains balanced throughout.
I talked with the US Phonitor Rep at SPL and he recommended balanced in, and either balanced or single ended out. He thought balanced was always better. However he was demoing the Phonitor 2 with the LCX single ended, and it sounded superb. I'm using mine by connecting the balanced out on my Sony SACD player directly to the Phonitor 2, and single ended phone connection using the K812 or HD800. Both sound better than I have ever heard them based on the equipment I have owned in the past.
thanks -- my question is about what happens to the signal after it is fed into the P2? does it remain separate/balanced or not? the answer to that question is not answered by its inputs and outputs. I am doubtful that it is a fully balanced circuitry. was hoping someone here or from SPL would know and answer.
