RE: Balanced versus unbalanced analog connections

Oppo may claim the balanced and single-ended outputs of the 205 should sound identical, but using a balanced connection between my 205 and Ayre K-5xeMP resulted in more detail and a greater sense of transparency. The improvement over single-ended was very noticeable. I played CDs, SACDs, and Blu-rays, jazz trios, baroque, and opera. In each case, the sound was superb.

Thank you, Charles Hansen, for a post that convinced me to make the change.
