I think I did answer your question, but let's give it another go. A lot of manufacturers make their affordable amps balanced because the market has this preconception that a balanced architecture automatically sounds better. It doesn't sound better because it is balanced. SE can be equally powerful and sound equally good. Balanced is often a gimmick in cheap amps because it doesn't necessarily have to be balanced. They made it balanced so it may sell better. I hope my point is clearer now.
