Agree... my point is; as Ayre is designed for balanced operation, why even consider using SE cables where there's the option of balanced.
Not that anyone cares but I use the SE output from the QB9 with good results as it's my only option. Guess that's why it's there. Great DAC. Wish it did HDCD.
Best,

We wouldn't post if we didn't care Coppy. It's all good and you are right. I used a single ended MIT 360 shotgun from years back if I recall when I first got my Ayre AX7e and it sounded awesome. I then saved and got a pair of Audioquest Niagara balance and it opened a new world (selling the Niagara as I went to the AQ WEL when I got the AX5/20). The WEL cable on the AX5/20 is the best I've ever heard the amp sound. Takes it to near reference heights and I like a lot of what it does better than the stereo ref amp and the KX5 pre (or whatever the nomenclature is). It's a damn great integrated.

Default Single Ended to Balanced Cables

I tried a new cable. Audio Bliss! Wider stage! Cavernous reverbs! Less noise.
