    Has anyone compared Pacific to GG yet? Pacific valves are still restricted, the other valves haven't rolled out, so I will be able to valve tune my GG to beat the Pacific.
    Audition recordings: Zero Distortion Link; Reference Components: Zero Distortion Link; Own: Lampi GG One-day-to-get: Apogee Scintilla, or a horn (with Tenor 75 OTL ), Preamp to be fit in to suit the gain and drive the power amp. Analog: TBD

    I gather the vast majority of, if not all, dacs sound better balanced.
    It’s whether single ended is decidedly worse, and loses any performance superiority the dac has.
    How much of a SQ discount there is with RCA compared to XLR, I suspect is quite preamp dependent

    Our experience with Aqua Formula playing through RCA is very limited. Sorry can not be more helpful
