So this might be another wrong category thread by yours truly but need some help on my amplifier I'm planning. I'm going to build an amplifier using the Hypex nc-400 modules and on the datasheet they recommend using balanced input. Now I'm asking a simple question and that is: will using unbalanced input significantly effect the sound quality? If it barely effects it I can tolerate but if it's significant I would like to build it right, even though it would mean having to convert my output source to balanced. Anyways it's a lot of work for a kid such as me to build an amplifier so I want to make sure I do this right. Any replies are very welcome I really need to get this straight before I make a blueprint and tabulate my costs. Thanks!
