BOZ VS BALANCED BOZ

Maybe I just like 2nd order harmonics, but I actually built both BOZ balanced and original BOZ, and I preferred the sound of the original version. Since none of my equipment is balanced, I used the balanced BOZ in single ended mode. Maybe used balanced, it sounds better. I noticed it was cleaner, maybe a little more treble extension, but didn't have the mids that the original seemed to have. I prefer tube amps, so maybe its just a preference related to me.
