Would it benefit me to use the balanced out to RCA for powered speakers?
No. The common-mode rejection (hum and noise reduction) benefits of a balanced XLR connection will be completely lost if its negative phase and shield/ground are summed to create an unbalanced RCA connection.

Mine just came in, looks like Schiit is providing stickers now. Will be using on my HE6se and comparing to the OG Jotty. Impressions later.

Update:

Looks like mine might be defective. The knob has a rough/resistive feel starting at 9 o’clock like sliding something that feels like it should be lubricated but isn’t. It is also an audible scratchy sound. I am not sure if this is due to it being still new and needs break-in to be smooth but my OG Jotty doesn’t exhibit this.

The stickers gotta be a xmas gift, can't believe they added an extra anything to the box. I have the same problem with my pot, not audible through the amp. It's from 10 to 11 on mine. Suprised they installed these.

If you have a small allen wrench you might try moving the know out slightly. I would still contact Schiit.

I don't mind if it was that simple but I also would rather not on a new piece just in case I do something irreversible. I sent schiit an email already. Let's see what they say.
