Hello Alan

You are probably correct.

I am not an electrical engineer. I know very little on the subject.

This is how I look at it;
A phono cartridge has two leads per channel. The red lead is the positive portion of the waveform, analogous to the speaker driver moving outwards. The white lead is the negative portion of the waveform, analogous to the speaker driver moving inwards.

A truly balanced signal preserves both sides of the waveform through the entire amplification process.

A single ended amplification chain uses the positive portion (red lead) of the waveform, but what happens to the negative portion of the waveform?. I believe half of the music is relegated to ground?

Or am I completely out to lunch?
