Help me please, despite googling I can't seem to nail the intrigues of the balanced and SE chain. Is it OK to mix balanced and single ended in the one chain? For example balanced DAC into an amp that has SE and balanced output but earphone is single ended and plugged into the single ended output of the amp? or A SE DAC plugged into a balanced amp using RCA, and balanced headphone using balanced output of the amp? or A balanced DAC that is plugged into a SE amp, with SE headphones? My knowledge of electronics is next to nil so excuse me. I'm thinking the minute an SE device is introduced into a balanced chain then the two separate -ve circuit of a balanced device is shorted? Yet I've read here and elsewhere of mixing balanced and SE devices in the one chain...this grasshopper needs wisdom. Thank you in advance.
