My next power amp will only have single ended rca inputs which means losing my xlr connections.
Has anyone noticed a difference between the two outputs? I used to have a Schiit dac and there was a subtle more refined sound from xlr than rca.
I use the attenuator now to lower floor noise but have a bit of a volume boost using balanced connections, which I will likely lose with the new amp. And so, I feel the best way to do this is to build a passive transformer xlr to rca box. Can someone please specify how the balanced connections (pin-out) should be connected in relation to the rca out? I’ve seen xlr to rca cables but this is not the best way to do things, using a transformer is. I just want to ensure the instructions I give to the builder for connections from the DS are as painless as possible.
