I could try the SE outputs again. But if you heard the difference in sound and soundstage with balanced output you would go WTF? After reading what Atomicbomb said about the Rolls MB15b raising the noise floor and not having proper caps...... I might also want to try to run my cable that is XLR to RCA into the Vincent from the Freya output. The Vincent has protection. I know that because this morning I learned that there has to be a sequence of system turn on, or the Vincent with go into protect mode. I talked to my cable guy Mike Morrow about this and he said that you will lose a lot of advantages of the balanced and lose at 4db of gain or more. Losing that gain is fine because I want that so the subs will match the Vincent. Thanks guys. I know this has been somewhat of an enigma. But the bottom line (this is what I'm experiencing) is that the balanced out of the Freya is way better than the SE outputs. If this was not true (which it could all be in my head, but I know it's not) things would be easier. Still love that NuPrime though. The timbre was spot on. But it was far and away inferior to a good Class A amp for resolution, soundstage and transparency. Now I play with another amp which needs it's veil lifted. I'll get there. At least today with the Freya XLR output I found an amp that produces something to work with.
