Default is it really this easy?

I recently purchased kari's X-BOSOZ that will be running to my Aleph 2 (if it ever gets finished). As I understand it, you wont get full potential from the X-Bosoz if its run single ended.

Is this right?

unbal source (my computers sound card) >> JT-11P-1 >> X-bosoz >>Aleph

Is there anything else I should be concerned about?

Hi,

you can use an unbalanced input and still get the full X as long as you use the balanced output.

Hi,

It's better now, IMO.

If I recall correctly, Nelson has stated that it is preferred to use an unbalanced to balanced converter in lieu of a balanced source for the BOSOZ.

I remember asking him this question a couple of years ago.

If you bias the SOBOZ with a constant current source to the
negative rail, it works quite well with a single-ended input.
