That alone would be of more value than pointless single ended XLR inputs that are there mainly for appearance's sake.
The OP doesn't include if used is acceptable, what speakers he uses or the room in which they operate. This necessitates generalized recommendations. Design & execution makes as much difference as SS vs. tube IMO. As always, YMMV.Happy listening,
It was a bit of a technical awakening for me several years ago when I learned that the implementation of XLR inputs/outputs did not mean that the circuit in an audio device was balanced. Thus the use of the XLR in/outs was of limited usefulness in those cases. Along those lines, I also learned that a full system has to be completely balanced to benefit from balanced connections at all. The more you know!
Also, are you wanting to go 100% tube or are you open to a hybrid amp? Tube watts aren't cheap and there are many good hybrid options (including from AVA) which may be more practical for the higher-power-needed scenarios.
Thank you for the info. Obviously I'm a neophyte on the subject of tube amps. Not that I doubt you, I'm just the type that likes to understand the hows and whys - can you explain why tube amps don't benefit from balanced inputs?Any thoughts from others on the two amps in question?
