Unless it is an "autotransformer" you can configure ins and outs as balanced or unbalanced
But what do you need?: Input impedance, output impedance, ratio, power, frequency response, levels, application, money, etc. Details, details.... E

Lineamp Erno borbely SE, poweramp Pass Aleph X balanced.

To get all 100W from Aleph X the amp needs a balanced signal so I'm looking for a line input transformer, Pano advice me for one 1:1 ratio but after I tought that I need that will have a gain of +3 dBs like a balanced signal.

The step up transformer must be high quality, type Lundhal or similar.

Thanks for help
