I'm planning on getting a pair of LCD-2 rev.2 with a balanced cable with a 4 pin XLR plug. Now I am slightly confused about what a balanced setup looks like. For a DAC I would have the Asus Xonar Essence STX's DAC. I don't have enough money for a proper dedicated DAC at the moment.
If I purchased v181 and used its balanced outputs, would that give me a true balanced sound (considering my DAC), or the source has to be balanced as well? If that's not the case then unbalanced SQ wise, which would be the better option, v200 or v181?
