Default Pass Labs x350.5 performance, single ended or balanced?

I am planning on getting a Pass Labs x350.5. My preamp is Conrad Johnson CT-5. This preamp accepts only single ended cables. So my question is:

How does the x350.5 perform using the single ended connectors versus the balanced?


Greetings from Norway

SUSY performance will suffer , same as sound

Except for noise, it gives pretty much the same performance, and this is
because the inputs are summing junctions, and single-ended inputs are merely
another balanced source with ground as the (-) input.
