"Weird" indeed. When I had the FA-10 my experience was the direct opposite of yours. I hated using the SE output for anything because it sounded relatively inferior to me driving the Susvara or He6SEv2. I do not want to speculate on what the reasons were, since they could have been located somewhere else in the chain for all I know, and impacting the FA-10 from outside (or inside it, maybe?). I just rocked out on the 4-pin XLR output for the duration of my ownership until I resold it, and had a blast every minute of itWierd observation, the bass and treble is smoother out of my FluxLab Fa-10 amp from the Single-ended 6.3mm output jack.
The Single-ended jack has the same gain as the XLR jack. How is it that they sound so different?
The topology is single-ended inside. As for the inputs doesn't matter if I use the back XLR or the RCAs.
The Single-ended 6.3mm jack has significantly less of a bad "shine" feeling to it. Way better to use the 6.3mm jack for my HE6.
