You have a beautiful looking set-up. Just a bit of break-in and you'll be there.
Congrats!

Im amazed how much different it sounds than my previous C-2120... The C-3850 costs alot more, but damn... Wonder how much better the C2450 are against C-2120... The first step up . C-2120 sounded "dull and boring" compared to the new (not burned in) C-3850... Impressed (even at the cost of the c-3850).

C-3850 sounds so "calm", "warm" jet super detailed, super wide soundstage, and depth...

Now i finally understand what people means about the "Accuphase sound"...

Normally the units are floating as well, i.e. independent of the ground potential.

In a top of the line Accuphase system, the fully balanced output of the source (DA / Phono pre) is connected via XLR to the fully balanced C-3850 and then via XLR to the fully balanced monoblocks
(A-200, A-250, M-6200). At the output of the power amps the phase of one complete amplifier chain per channel (preamp, connections and power amp) is turned 180°.

This eliminates all potentially induced noise and also the common residual noise and distortion of the amplifier and volume control units themselves leading to a cleaner music signal.
Does this mean that the fully balanced config would tend to sound better with xlr cables, rather then single ended?

That is generally believed to be true when connecting fully balanced gear (not single ended circuitry with balanced conversion for XLR jacks) and the reason that a manufacturer would go to the additional expense required. There are also those that believe a simpler signal path of single ended designs will sound best and that the additional expense of balanced circuitry is not beneficial or justified. Like with most things in high end audio there are often as many opinions as there are audiophiles.

Both of my all Accuphase rigs are cabled 100% with all Balanced connections.

My Luxman C-900u and M-900u combo is similarly fully balanced in design and excels when connected with all XLR cables.
