RE: New FiiO Hi-Rez Digital Player

Hi Janis,

All the FiiO players I've owned had both balanced and unbalanced analog outputs. The unbalanced outputs used the standard 3.5-mm headphone plug. The balanced outputs had two ports, one for a 2.5-mm TRRS plug and the other for a 4.4-mm TRRS plug. In fact, I prefer listening to my FiiO earphones using a balanced cable.

You can also buy a balanced cable with either a 2.5-mm or 4.4-mm male TRRS plug on one end and two male XLR connectors on the other end. That's what I use to drive my power amplifier. I also bought 10-foot cables with XLR connectors on both ends and then I connected the other cable to them. Balanced cables have male XLR connectors on one end and female XLR connectors on the other. That way you can daisy-chain them. Here's what I bought:

2.5mm male TRRS to dual male XLR connectors.

4.4mm male TRRS to dual male XLR connectors.

10-ft Pair of balanced cables.

Best regards,
John Elison
