But is it balanced
I’ve always wanted a stereo amp. What’s it like?
Bah! This stereo business is just a passing fad. Mono is where it's at!
Does it need a “balance” knob to be truly fully balanced?
No knob required. Just check it doesn't fall over and stays on the shelf. If so, you have a balanced amp. If not, chances are it lacks weight throughout the frequency range. You could try turning it up. or upside down.
(Have you been reading Raffe or something?)
Actually, a colleague of mine runs a mono only studio:
Mono *is* a thing in audio. I have encountered those who believe that stuff sounds better in mono.
'phools or 'philes? I don't know.
My friend is deaf in one ear, 25 and says he can't pass the driving test because they only have stereo headphones. I didn't know they had an audio part of the test now.
