Default balanced question

I have built a number of Aleph 3 amps. More recently I built a BOSOZ preamp...The Aleph 3's do not have a balanced input...do you guys think it would be worthwhile to make the inputs of the 3's balanced (using the volksamp scheme for the Aleph 30) to utilize the balanced output of the BOSOZ. The DAC feeding the BOSOZ is single ended.

Thanks in advance for your advice

Just rip off the balanced input circuit from the Aleph 2, 5, or 30.
They all will work fine.

IMO they are super chips. Have used lots. They're almost as good as valves

The ps wont be a problem...the reason I got the samples was to see if I could run longer twisted pair and still have a quiet "noise floor".....I`m trying to make a cheaper alternative for some projects at hand.....I have been using op amps in the past and these chips seem to be a more viable alternative
